This is a card we made for shoe box. We bleached the leaves. The colors are gold and pear. I thought at first nothing happened but then I found that the colored changed. It's not as nice as the chocolate chip but still I like it.

I made this thank you card for some people who made a very generous contribution to our quilt ask letter. I need to make a couple more & hope to get them done today. I have to go to Costco for supplies for our luncheon on Sat. too. I'm looking forward to some down time once the bazaar is over!

I made this birthday card for an Auxiliary member. I bleached the leaves. I have not done this in years. It's fun because you never know what the out come will be. I taught a class a long time ago and I bought little nail polish bottles from Sally's Beauty Supply. They no longer carry them. Using them made the process a lot less messy.

I made this birthday card for Honey. I really like this color combo. Peach Parfait & Pear. The rickrack was barely long enough but adding the pumpkin covered that up. I borowered this die from Sharon. I think I am going to have to order it. I really like the shape.

Here's a correction from my post yesterday. The stamp is from My Sentiments Exactly & I am not even sure they are still in business. The one embossing powder I did not mention is butterscotch and it is from Adirondack also. I will be doing birthday cards for the VA again, just a little different format. I am happy about that! See you tomorrow. Rubber hugs & happy stamping and all that!

Here's a birthday card I made for an Aux. member. I love this pumpkin stamp. It is unmounted and I don't know what company it came from. I embossed the pumpkins in eggplant, moss and butterscotch which are Adirondack powders. I am surprised they work because they are quite
old. The birthday saying is a clear stamp and I think it is Hero Arts but I am not sure. The colors are eggplant & olive which is not the best match with the moss and I used my Tim Holtz wood grain embossing powder.

I made this thank you note last week for some people that contributed generously to our quilt raffle letter. I use to stamp on figured paper quite a lot. Haven't done that in awhile. It's something different.

I saw this color combo on Pinterest. It is Brown Sugar, Pear and Navy. I thought this was a great color combo.
It mworked again and I am a happy person!! It's even easier than the way I was doing it. Now I have to get busy and stamp!!

I made this birthday card for Joe's sister. Marina Mist is almost the color of her pretty eyes. I can't get the computer to come up to the pictures I loaded today. This computer just stinks. I think I will throw it down the hill. I'll keep trying and maybe some day I can get it to load. I don't know how I did this but I got it to post the picture!! I'll try to post another one.

A easy
VA birthday card. The embossing folder is a Cuttlebug and the oval is StampinUp.

I got a birthday card from Denise using these colors. I was inspired!!! Here's my card using purple olive orange & vanilla.

Good morning! Here's a birthday card I made for a Aux. member. mustard, olive and white. The stamp is great impressions. I am showing the inside too. I rarely do that don't know why because I never leave the in
side blank.

I made this card because I really am ready for fall. It is more mustard and old olive. The stamp is Great Impressions.

A VA birthday card. I think this stamp is a Hero Arts clear stamp. The gold trim is a strip that someone @ the point brought to me a couple of years ago. It had adhesive on it at one point but it's dried up. A quick and easy card.

I made this card for Marilyn for her birthday. I had to play around with the colors a bit until I got it right. I really did not have a purple that was right, then I tried white and that was washed out. The die is simple but elegant I think.

I saw this layout on Pinterest. I really liked it. I just changed the colors. I finished all my VA birthday cards yesterday and worked on some things for the bazaar, dd the laundry so a pretty productive day.

I had a very productive card making weekend. Joe was able to get the birthday list from the Va so I got busy making some cards.I started with this designer paper. I have not used this color combo in awhile. This one came together very quickly.

I made this card foe an Auxiliary member who is in the hospital. The stamp is from Inkadinkado and it says it is made in the USA. I never realized that until I looked to see who made this stamp. That's a big plus for me when I am buying stamps in the future.

Here'a another one of my swap cards. I truly love this stamp from Hero Arts.

I did this card for shoe box on Sat. Denise did this card last week for my other shoe box group. I really liked the layout so I decided to use it. It looks so much different than hers I think because she used coordinating DSP on each of the panels.

Here's one of my shoe box cards. This is a cling mount stamp made in the USA. The company is called Deep Red. I bought this stamp to challenge myself. I have way too many flower stamps.
