Sharon showed us how to do this card. It is complicated but worth the effort. Love the colors.

Brown Sugar and white card I made using the Kensington branch & Detail Scallop dies. Can't remember who I made this for. The Detailed scallop die is a bear to get released from the die. I ran it through several times and then used a pin to get it out. Wouldn't want to make this card in multiples!!

This was a card for shoe box that Pam designed. I added the butterfly because I had a spot of ink that I wanted to hide. Nice, happy colors! I have a lot of brads that I never use so I'm thinking that I need to get them out and use them more. Shoe box today with Julie and Denise & I even have my card made.

Shoe box was a lot of fun. Here's my first card. The stamp is Impression Obsession.. Orange Marvy stamp pad which matches Tangerine Tango, always love when that happens. Not sure you can see it in the picture but I added some scoring to fill in the space between the embossing and the stamped area. Made a difference. The folder is StampinUp.

Here's the birthday card I made for our grand daughter. I started with bashful blue squares & stippled the 3 other squares with broken china, faded jeans and sapphire distress inks then popped up the Kensington branch die. Yes, I have too much time on my hands. Took forever to cut tiny pieces of foam tape but I thought it looked better popped up. Shoe box tomorrow and I need to get another card finished and do some cleaning. With it being so dry I swear I could dust every day. I used to have a cute saying titled "dust if you must" . Need to see if I can find that again.

This card was for an auxiliary member. I am having fun with this die. At first I thought I could not think of different ways to use it. I used a circle die to cut it out. The background is a stencil. I like it! Got my closet cleaned out and took the stuff to the thrift store. Normally I would ride it around for 500 miles before I remembered it was in the back of my car. Is that progress or what!!! Joe started painting the back fence yesterday. I am going to follow along with a brush to get the spots he can't get to or what he misses. This will be a project that will

Here's another sympathy card. Took my inspiration from one of Royce's shoe box cards. Just changed the EF. Got three cards made this weekend and finished painting some bird houses, just need to varnish them. Now to figure out how to attach them to the chandelier. Two major projects this week. Cleaning out my closet and cleaning and organizing my craft room closets. Need to get a couple of cards made for shoe box on Sat. and make a cake for the salad luncheon. Will I get all that done? We'll see. I'm betting one of the closets will be on the back burner! Laundry today too. Here's the card.

My twin sister was here visiting so I haven't posted for awhile. We had a great time together and Joe had projects that he and Dave worked on so that was good too. Here is one of my swap cards. I used brown sugar cs for this one. The printed paper just happened to match. The die set I used was Fancy Ribbon Threader.
