I made this birthday card for a friend. It is vellum embossed in black and glued to the top of the card. Haven't made any like this in a long time. Look better in person. Humm wonder if it has anything to do with the person taking the pictures most likely!

I made this simple sympathy card using some StampinUp DSP and my new Prim Poppy die by Memory ox. Ihave seen several cards on Pinterest using this die & I really liked it.

I made this Z fold card for shoe box. It is Not Quite Navy and Pear Pizzaz. I really lik
e these colors together. I clear embossed the butterfly and cut it out. It's an old StampinUp stamp. The saying is Rubbernecker. I like this card a lot.

Here is one of my shoe box cards. I saw this layout on Pinterest. Peg colored the bird blue & the leaves green and it looked much better. One of the reasons I enjoy shoe box so much is sharing ideas. Fun!!

I made this card for Sharon for her birthday. I have not used pink and brown for awhile but I like that color combo.

I made this card as my August swap. I was going to color the poppies but decided to just leave it like it was.

I made this VA birthday card last week. I'm not sure I like the colors but I do like the layout. Colors are gray, black and rust. Sorry I am posting so late. I had something requesting I down load it and I haven't a clue what it was so had to wait until Joe looked at it. It would pop up and then I couldn't type. Surely I will get comfortable with this new computer sometime soon!

I made this card for an Auxiliary member who had shoulder surgery. This is a nice color combination. Eggplant, Kraft and green using white as my neutral. It sat on my desk for a couple of days. I added pearls to the center of the flowers. What a difference that made.

I saw this faux tile technique on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. I think I would make the score lines bigger next time.

I made a couple of VA birthday cards yesterday. c Here's one of them. The clouds is a Hero Arts stamp. The balloons were stamped & cut out.

Here's a simple card I made for a VA birthday. Pretty simple. I need to get the rest of the VA cards made plus I have to work on both my shoe box cards. I played all day yesterday but did not come up with much I liked.

Here's a birthday card I made for an Aux. member. Today I need to work on my VA birthday cards, do a little cleaning and laundry. I'd better get at it!

I made this birthday card for a new member of the Auxiliary. I found this scrap of rickrack and decided to use it. I've done some all white and all ivory cards but this is a different angle. Add a little bling and I am happy!

I made a couple of cards yesterday. Here's one of them. Marina mist, vanilla & a clear thinking of you stamp.

I made this wind chime over the weekend. The base is a votive candle holder. I found the silverware @ Goodwill in Fredericksburg. It has a really nice sound.

Monday, August 5, 2013

The stamp for this card is Hero Arts. I used Not Quite Navy and an old Memories ink pad called soft green. I like the way this one turned out.

Sunday, August 4, 2013

I made this wind chime a while ago and just got around to taking pictures. I wanted to do one in copper and green and when I saw this plane @ Goodwill, it was love @ first sight. It is a music box and still works. My good friend Sharon showed Pam and I how to make wind chimes. It is great fun. I'm working on another one. Mine don't hold a candle to the ones Sharon makes but it fun to try. I'm off to make cards for several August birthdays.

I used another background stamp on this card & stamped it with Brilliance Moon Light White. The stamp is a StampinUp stamp set that is one of my all time favorites. I used markers to color the stamp and then added a little color to the stamped flower.

Here's a card I made using a background stamp that hasn't seen ink probably since I got my first Cuttlebug. The flower was in my card parts box. This card came together quickly and I was happy with the results, for the first time in awhile.
