I made this card for a friend.  I embossed the flowers then stamped off the lavender before I stamped it on the card.  I like the look.

I  am posting late today because I am making curtains for one of Trev's bathrooms and I ran out of thread.  I try to hit Walmart early to avoid the crowds.  I've a lot to do before Friday so this day has to count!  Here's a birthday card for our grandson.   I rarely show the inside of my cards and I don't know why, I usually do something on the inside.

I got a couple of cards made yesterday.  Here's one I really like.  I was looking on Pinterest for some ideas and saw one that caught my attention.    They made a frame by using 2 sizes of a die to make a frame.  I like that idea so here's my card.  Of course mine does not look a thing like the one I saw but that's OK.

I really need to get some cards made!  We leave for Oklahoma City on Fri to help celebrate our great grandson's first birthday.  He is such a cutie. This card was one I received from Sharon in a swap.  I love the colors and the design  of this card.  Hopefully I can make a couple of cards today.

Here's a birthday card I made for an Auxiliary member.  I had planned to get my July cards made or at least started yesterday. We discovered we had  pantry moths yesterday morning so we spent the morning getting rid of lots of infected stuff.  Of course Joe got on the internet and found that you can get a trap to prevent them. Not sure how it works since it is only a piece of cardboard.  Anyway, a trip to Home Depot for the trap and we have a nice, clean,
 organized pantry.

I really like my new circle swirl die.  I was playing around just to see what else I could come up with.  I ran the die through to cut it out then placed a circle die over it and ran it through again.  I was using a scrap of paper and barely had enough to cut it out of the circle but it worked. Whee!  I used a stripped EF and punched out the bird.  I stamped the thinking  of you and used a punch to cut it out, placed it in the middle and it's done.  I can see that trying to use this punch in different
 ways will be a challenge.

Here's my other swap card.  I had to play with my new dies.   I saw it when I was looking @ cards on Pinterest & really liked it so I went to 123 stitch and ordered it.  Comes in 2 sizes.  Mine is the smaller one. Circle Swirl small. I also got this solid butterfly called Darla.  It goes with the butterfly die that is called Vivenne.  Her postage is very reasonable and the service is excellent.

Here's the card I made for my smaller swap group.  I hope it has arrived in every one's mail box by now.  Sharon showed us how to do this highlight on a die and I really like the look.  I do need practice however, I think I am too heavy handed or maybe I need to buy
a bigger dauber than I have.
