VA birthday again

I bought this ribbon a long time ago.  I was looking for something different and came up with this card.  Pretty simple but I like it.

I only have VA cards to show until I get my swap card done.  Here's another one.  This stamp is one I have had since I started making cards 14 years ago.  It's a DeNami stamp.  I must get my nose out of the book I am reading and get some stampin done!

Here's another VA birthday card I made.  This is a great stamp by Deadbeat Designs.

A thank you note

Here's a thank you note I made for one of the board members who donated money for the new floor in the gift shop.  The colors are Bordering Blue and Pear Pizzaz.  The stamp I used was a Hero Arts cling stamp.  I bought it because I saw a card made up  using a bird in the set.  Now I have no idea what that card looked like.  We are off today to Oklahoma City for our granddaughters wedding.  I hope we don't get blown away!  I used watercolor crayons to color the flower.

Card for my VA guys

I had 10 birthdays @ the VA in May.  Here's a card I made for one of them.  S. Sand and Navy, a nice color combo for masculine cards.

Another shoe box card

Here's the second shoe box card I made for last month.  Hot pink and orange are not colors I gravitate to & they teased me that it was not a Linda card.  Delicate Doilies by Stampin Up is the set I used.

Shoe box card

Here's one of the cards I made for shoe box last month.  I tried to think of something different.  I bought this paper @ Tuesday Morning.  It is really nice paper and I Cuttlebuged  it and then we sanded off some of the color.  Turned out pretty well I thought.  The saying is a nice one from Rubbernecker stamps.

I'm back

Good Morning!  I am back, bleary eyed but I've gone through my email and have one more load of laundry to do then it is back to normal - - - almost!  We leave Sat. for our granddaughter's wedding in Oklahoma City.  I have a lot of cards I made before I left to show you.  Here's one of them.
  This was a thank you card I made thanking a board member  for "opening her purse strings" for her contribution to  the new floor in the gift shop.  Colors are a new combo I discovered because the two colors were laying on my desk.  Too bad not quite navy is gone!

This is my last post until May 19th.  Off to see some exotic places.  Cruising the Suez Canal.   We've been to some of the ports but will be fun to see Italy and Greece again. I can't believe I got everything done that  wanted to.

This thank you card was made using cork.  I tried to stamp it twice but the giraffe did not show up very well so I decided to use the frame and stamped the giraffe again on vanilla paper.  Looks better in real life than in this photo.

I had several thank you cards to make this week.  Here's one of them.  The stamp and saying is from Hero Arts. Yes, there are purple roses.  A friend send us roses on our anniversary and they were purple.  Very pretty!
