This birthday card is from another friend in  Arizona.  Bazaar  count down is here!  I still have to  work on one glass flower and another one needs a final  layer.   Pies to make  and then set up the lawn art.

This card is from my friend Opal in Tucson.
  I can always count on getting a card from her for my birthday.  So cute!

WOW am I busy trying to finish some "No Killum Flowers" for the bazaar and a bird house chandelier.  Fun stuff!  I have some early Nov. birthday cards that I need to get in the mail  by tomorrow.  I got this birthday card from Denise. I love  Bluebonnets!  It's a great card!

Another birthday card, this one was
 from Sharon.  The die is a Cuttlebug I think.  It is really pretty.

I am showing some of my birthday cards this week.  This one is from Peg.  Love the colors. This will be a busy week the bazaar starting with a preview on Friday night and the bazaar on Sat.  I am trying to finish a couple of projects.

I received some really great birthday cards so I decided to show them.  This one my friend Liz sent.  I loved the happy birthday which is a Memory Box die.  It will be arriving in my m
mail box soon.

I made this birthday card for a friend.  The stamp is a vertical one.  I stamped the Happy on the left, cleaned and dried the stamp and then inked the Birthday and stamped  it on the right.  The Wild Wasabi is a new color for
me.  One I  really like.

I had to make a sympathy card last week.  I re did it and like it much better.  The first one was on a white base and I thought it was too white.  I added an eggplant base and like it much better.  The sponged base was a die that   I popped up  and then I added the Kensington branch on top. I am still having trouble getting my newer cards to some up. Can't be the user, can it?

Shoe box was Sat. and I made this card.  It is a Holly Berry  stamp.  I stamped it  4 times and embossed it in copper then cut it apart and popped up the different layers.  It took me a long time to do this one and now I know why I don't try this technique often.  Colors are Chocolate Chip, Peach Parfait and More Mustard.  I am disappointed in the picture.  It is a really nice card up close!

We had shoe box on Wed. and here is the card I made.  Just Because is the stamp set by StampinUp. Chocolate & Blue are always a pleasing combo.

I made this card because I think fall is in the air.  This embossing folder is a Cuttlebug & the stamp is an unmounted one that I bought at a convention years ago.  I colored it with alcohol markers & embossed with Moss.

  I have been unable to post pictures for the last couple of days.  Tried this morning and it worked.  Go figure!

I made this birthday last week.  I rarely use this color and I was just trying to do something different.  This is a Hero Arts stamp.  I am never happy with white embossing powder and the paper is textured which makes it much harder.  I will probably just stamp the sentiment on white to cover it up.  Every time I make a bow I like I think of my friend Marcy.  We stood in the parking lot after  a stamp meeting in the  hot Tucson sun trying to teach her how to  make bows.  She makes beautiful cards.  I'll have to ask her if she can make bows  now.

I made this card for Marilyn for her birthday.  I have had this ribbon forever.  Don't know why I am hording it. I am not sure it shows in the picture but the sentiment and the leaves are stamped on DSP  just to give it a little texture.

Another Aux. birthday card.  Pretty simple.  Notice that I used the waxed paper I put in the die to get the butterfly out.  It came out very nice so I used it.

Here is another birthday card using the Poppy die. Looks a little dark in the picture.  I may have to work on it a bit.

No cards to post today.  I have been working on some  things for the gift shop or Bazaar.  I did these candles.  I have done these before for Thanksgiving centerpieces.  I have also used candy corn as the  filler and popcorn unpopped of course. Hum coffee beans would hold  up better probably and smell good too! I bought this burlap  on a roll @ Walmart, I  bought the beads @ the bead show cheap. I  strung them on stretchie cord and tied it tight.  The next one is three layers which is hard to see in  the photo.

Can't think what the first layer is called so I will say material used in some belts, second layer is tan  and the grograin ribbon on top.  the gold is a  button.

My cold is better and I have a little more energy this morning so I need to play catch up today!

I sent this birthday card to an Auxiliary member.  Doesn't show up very well.  It is the new technique Sharon showed us.  You use a used dryer sheet, spray adhesive and glitter.  It is really pretty in real time.

I made this card as one of my swaps.  I love the look of doilies on cards.  If one is good 2 is more better!

This was my swap card that I made for last month.  I have been seeing a lot of yellow and black cards so I decided to use those colors.  I added some score lines for a little interest.

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

I used this layout from a swap I received from Sharon.  Her's was done in green and black with some very pretty ribbon.  I rounded the corners on mine. I never got around to posting yesterday.  I am working to get some things made for the upcoming Bazaar@ the Point & started working on them early.
