Denise did this card for shoe box last Saturday.  Colors are Pool Party and Real Red.  I love the color combo. I made a card using these colors that I will show you on Monday.  Have a happy weekend.

We made this card in our shoe box group.  Julie designed it   It is  stamps and dies.  I love the colors.  I'm not sure what color the orange is Calypso  Coral or Tangerine Tango  but the blue is pool party. I have already used this card.  All the layers are popped up but the bottom layer.

I made this card for Heidi.  I used my Noir markers to color it.  The stamp is Magenta and the die is Marvelous Squares.The colors are cantelope and wasabi., not too sure about this color combo.  I am making thinking of you/get well cards   for the Auxiliary the last couple of days and I got my two swaps in the mail.  We are going to The Laurel Tree for lunch on Sat. to celebrate our anniversary a little early.  We have been talking about going there for at least a year.  I'm looking forward to that!

Night of Navy and white birthday card.  Very simple.  I have used this embossing folder a lot lately.  Tim Holtz brick wall.  Finally got my swap card in the mail.  Shoe box was fun and we made some really nice cards that I will share this week.

This card I made for Sharon for her birthday.  All products are from StampinUp.  The DS  paper  is from a small 6x6 paper pack.  Shoe box was fun.  Great cards again!

This card is so not me.  I made it for Heidi but mailed a different one yesterday.  I do love the saying.Shoe box today with Denise & Julie.  We get to see Julies new home on top of a hill with a spectacular view.  Long time coming and some years of hard  work & sacrifice   but it has finally happened. I even have my card done.  Do you think this is a new trend? Christmas cards done and now I am prepared for shoe box instead of struggling the day of. We got some much needed rain last night and this morning it is still raining, Joe said since 4 o'clock.  Thank you God!

Denise and Sharon made some more Texas themed cards for the  gift shop.  I have always used red white & blue with this stamp.  I really like the black and "Happy Trails" is very appropriate.  It is Jam'n Stamps & Texana Designs which was a little pricey & I had to talk myself into splurging.

Denise designed this Texas card for the gift shop.  I love the red and brown together.The twill ribbon is really nice.  I keep  forgetting  to ask her where she got it. I got busy cleaning and forgot about posting today.  Sorry!

Here s another birthday card I made .  This Wasabi  card stock is new to me.  Julie used it on the card that I showed yesterday.  Very pretty color. I bought this ribbon @ Walmart and I think it matches well.

Here is a card we made in shoe box.  Julie designed this card.  We colored the stamp with markers.  It's
 elegant I think.

I made this card over the weekend for a young woman that had a double mastectomy. Such a shame & the road to recovery is going to be long and hard.  If you are a praying person please pray for Heidi.  I colored the embossing folder with chalk & clear embossed the sentiment.

I made this birthday card for an Auxiliary member.  This stamp is  from Magenta and one one I have had for a long time.  I used my new Noir markers to color it.  I was pleased with the results.

I have seen lots of cards using the new label punch from StampinUp.  This one I received from Marcy.  It is a really pretty card.

I received this swap card from Royce this past week.  The saying is computer generated.  Check out the license plate.  Too clever!

Here's another Aux. birthday card.  The die is called Floral Ovals. It's a set of three & this is the largest. The rose  was colored with my new Spectrum Noir markers.  I did not get a good picture of this one but it is already in the mail.  Busy day today, grocery, laundry and some cleaning.

Here's a birthday card I made for Lorraine.  She's one terrific lady whom I admire a lot.  I finally put all my 12x12 paper in one place, sorta in color families.  I have vowed to use more printed  paper but we will see if that really happens,  This die  is the largest of the Fancy Ribbon Threader.  I don't think I have ever used a die with DS paper.  Any way I like the way this turned out.  I have received some really great cards recently and I am pleased that the ladies have allowed me to post them here.  The main reason I started this blog was because a friend talked me into it & sharing creativity is really what it ids all about.  I made a couple of Christmas cards yesterday, trying to see what I want to do this year.  Can this really be me??? No last minute crunch to get my cards out by Dec. 1st.  UN HEARD OF!!

Here's a card that Sharon designed for one of our shoe box events.  The decorative edge is a punch.  Lots of nice details on this card & nice colors.
