Today is our youngest sons birthday. We made this card in shoe box and it was designed by Sharon. I really like it and told her it would be Trev's birthday card. I even got it in the mail on time. Sunday we are going to SA to the river walk. They lighted it this past week. It is magical. Looking forward to that and I have appointments this week so it will be busy. Getting ready for our cruise to Columbia, Costa Rico, Aruba and Panama. Not sure that is the order but it will be a nice trip. I need to get my cards done for Dec. I have several to get in the mail before we leave.

My last November birthday card. I don''t think I have ever used blue and pink to make a card except for the few baby cards I have made. Don't know exactly how I arrived @ this color combo. The stamp set is a retired one from StampinUp that I rarely use. I like it just like other sets better.

Good Morning. I have recovered from the Thursday membership appreciation event. A lot of work but it was well worth the effort. I went down on Fri and picked up my stuff and donated the left over food to Junction house. This morning I have a card that I made for an Aux. member that has had a stroke. I thought she needed a sunny card so this is what I came up with.

A fall birthday card that I made for an Auxiliary member. The wreath stamp is one I have had for a long time. It is beautiful embossed in gold on dark colors. When I was into stamping with bleach I used this stamp on green card stock and it turned a beautiful purple. It was really pretty. The membership appreciation party was a tremendous success. The auxiliary is finished until Jan. 15th. I am looking forward to this time off. I have lots to accomplish during this down time. This is the dryer sheet/glitter technique.

Here's my other shoe box card. The colors are a little bright for me. The stamps are StampinUp retired. I stamped the packages on the circle then stamped them again and cut them out and popped them up. Didn't think I could cut out the bow! I added some bling to the packages.

I had trouble again opening this file. I really don't understand what happens when I try to open a new file. When I finally get it I don't know how it happened. GRRRRRRR! I made this card for shoe box. Sharon said we could use it either way so here is a picture of that. I used the scalloped border because I did not get the embossing folder in the right place and so it was not embossed at the bottom. The pictures are reversed. The bottom picture is the one I made originally. Needless to say I am not going to try to reverse the pictures. I hope that is my only challenge today because I have to cook for the buffet for tomorrow night. Wish me luck!

I made this card recently. I think it is one of my better ones, mainly because I love these colors together, eggplant and lagoon. The Lost Lagoon is a new color for me. I used it with yellow and white but this is my favorite. This stamp is old but I never get tired of using it. It's a Penny Black. I bought the matching ribbon which I rarely do. Hope I use it up before Lagoon goes away!

I sent this swap card to our daughter for her birthday. She loves pink. I am sorry to say I do not know who sent it to me. It is a great design. I am going to have to make an effort to pencil in the name of the person when I receive the card. Let me know if you sent it so I can give you credit. A trip to San Antonio today. I need lots of stuff that I buy in bulk. We went from summer to winter this week. I am happy that my heating/cooling unit is doing it's job. I am toasty in my studio.
