I will be making some cards with book marks for the gift shop.  Here is one I made yesterday using the word windows punch.  Navy & yellow is a nice color combination.  The stamp is very old from Great Impressions. I am late with my small swap, so I need to get that done today.  I worked more on the rooster this weekend.  My that is time consuming but I am really liking it.

I missed posting yesterday.  I have been busy with a nail art project that is going fairly well.  I think it is a life long commitment but I have finished the pearl boot project so I think I can get this done as well.

For our last shoe box Denise designed this card.  The colors are amazing together.  I would never put these colors together but I like the pastel thingy going on.  The flowers were stamped on Vellum and then colored on the back, orange, purple and Baha.  Such a nice soft look.

I am late in posting today.  I got a lot of stuff done yesterday, not fun stuff unless you like to clean and do laundry.  We have a roof, windows and a slider and the air conditioning people are here today.  Next comes the electrician.  Nancy Neat is doing fairly  well.  He has declared the side yard a disaster & doesn't want to get in the way so he cannot piddle out side  but he's doing better than I thought.

My card today is just a quick one.  I have this ice cream cone stamp that I have not used much.  The ice cream layers are a cloud die.  Pretty clever huh?? So just humor me!  Love this A Muse saying.

We did this card @ shoe box a month or so ago.  Julie designed it.  I love this paper.  I go to Hobby Lobby or Mikes and look @ all the paper pads and never buy because I can't decide which one to get.  I like the double ribbon too.

I made this card fro one of my swaps.  I am out of this paper I am sorry to say.  I always love black and white.

I can't seem to get a picture to post today.  I will try again.  How did my post from yesterday get so big?? I think I clicked too soon.  I am on a roll with book mark cards. I used this card Wed, for my shoe box card.  No stamping, amazing!  I paired the Prim Poppy and the Ringed Buckle dies for a nice combo on this card.  At least I like it.

Double sided paper can be a good thing. We did the book mark for shoe box and I have a couple of  Aux. birthday cards to make so all I did with this card is turn the paper over.  I think I like this one better than the one did for shoe box.  It's not quite as busy.

I have seen a lot of black & yellow cards recently.  Here's one I did for shoe box.  I saw a card non Pinterest and they had done the ribbon this way.  I liked the look so I CASED it.

Here;'one of  my shoe box cards.  I haven't made a bookmark card in a long time.  The stamp is a StampinUp set of 4.  There is an Iris, Calla Lilly and an Allium. Of course it is long  ago retired but it is a keeper in my book!

Here is Marcy's birthday card.  I really like these colors together.

This was  my least favorite of all the thank you cards I made.  I pulled out this college stamp and I think if I had made the top layer a little smaller it would have looked better.  Colors are ivory and pear.

Here's my swap card .  I have not done direct to paper in a long time.  I used alchol inks and glossy paper.  I used broken China and Dusty Concord.

I finally used this new stamp set called "tape It" (I think).  Don't know why I ordered it.  I have tried to use it a couple of times but l didn't like the results.  This one is OK.  The sentiment is also StampinUp.  I like this A LOR.

This card was made using my poppy die.  Surprising the color was purple but when I put the Glossy Accents on it it turned out to be navy.  I had to change the ink on the sentiment to my favorite navy  ink pad Fresco Indigo Velvet.

We are back and the mail is caught up and the laundry is done so everything is back to normal.  We had a great time.  the food was exceptional.  I tried new things and liked most of it.  Ever had goat cheese souffle? It was outstanding.  I went to a cooking show and they passed out the recipe.  I must give it a try.  I'm still showing some of the thank you cards I made.  This one is pretty simple.  the stamp is a clear Inkadinkado one that I have never used.  The colors are white and Almost Artichoke.
