I made this card for Julie for her birthday. The dots is Washi tape and the embossing folder is from StampinUp. I cut around the bottom of the folder and added a piece of pail yellow computer weight paper to bring out the yellow flowers.

I have a couple of friends that are recovering from surgery. I made a few cards to have on hand. I bought a tin of flowers for myself last year for my birthday and have not used many of them. That's what inspired this card. Hard to believe that another birthday is about to roll around again.

I'm sorry that I was unable to alert you to the fact that we were going away & I was not able to post. Joe had the computers turned off when I went to do that. Joe's Mom received 127 cards and some are still trickling in. A big thanks to all of you that contributed. Joe's 3 brothers and sister enjoyed it more than his Mom did (I think) she had a little trouble grasping the concept. Each one and their spouses looked at every card and were very appreciative. I simply can't thank you enough for your participation. Tomorrow I will be back to my normal posting, 1100 miles in 2 days n is a lot for us old folks & I have a busy rest of the week with an appt. for blood work and a neighborhood party @ our house. I have told the NOT to bring their white gloves!

I have been making a lot of thinking of you cards recently. Here's one of those. The background is embossed with white using a Hero Arts stamp. The daisy is colored with alcohol markers. Sentiment is Hero Arts also. Shoe Box today. Always fun and something to look forward to.

Here's another card I made for Heidi. Last report she is able to drive so she has her Independence back which is a very good thing. I know she has a horse so I thought this card would be appropriate. The nice saying is a clear mount stamp that I am not sure who makes but I think it is very nice.

We did this card in shoe box.It was designed by Denise. It is one stamp & I totally messed up mine. We colored them with watercolor markers. I got ink on the border so when I got home I tried to take it off the card base. You guessed it, I ripped the top so I just cut it off and added the punched border to hide that. I like the brightness of this card.

Another card I made for the Auxiliary. Crumb Cake & Not Quit Navy. The die is Memory Box. The Flower is a die also I think from PTI. I used up the last of my Baja Breeze paper for my sister's birthday card. Don't know what I will do when I run out of Not Quite Navy. The campaign for birthday cards is going very well! I'll be anxious to see how many she gets. I'll let you all know the final number. I have about 30 to get in the mail. I took cards yesterday to the Auxiliary and they wrote notes & signed them. So fun!
