Here is a card I made using Tangerine Tango.  The border is a die called Damask Accents.  After I took the picture I decided that I the flowers needed  a pearl.  Does make a difference, don't you think?

Here's another bookmark card using the bluebonnets dies.  The modem fixed our computer problems thank goodness.  I was not successful making cards yesterday.  Couldn't come up with anything I liked but the craft room is back together.  Every time Joe comes in here he says WOW!!  Feels good!

Here's the birthday card I made for Joe's sister.  I tried to make the bookmark attached but I got the perforated line crooked so I just cut it off and enclosed it in the card.  We have been having computer problems but today we get a new modem so hopefully that solves it!  I need to get my swap done and some early Nov. birthday cards finished by the weekend.

This card I designed for my smaller shoe box group.  It was a birthday card but I needed a guy thank you card so I changed the saying.  Love this black & white paper.

I have not been able to get on the internet today until now.  Here is the card that Sharon made for shoe box.  I have not tried this technique.  We embossed the flower and then sponged the color over the flower.  I'm going to have to play around with this tech. some more.  I am cleaning out my craft room and getting rid of stuff I don't use.  I've had this on the back burner for some time.  Now I know why I drug my feet.  The room is a disaster.  Why is it you have to make a mess to clean and clear out???

This card has lots of fall colors.  Denise made this one for our shoe box group.  She puts together great color combinations.

Just now able to get on the internet.  Here's a card that was designed by Pam for shoe box. When I finished the card I realized I had it upside down.  Yes, I know stupid.  I had to move stuff around. Anyway my card does not look a thing like Pam's I do like the inside, what can I say???

This card was  done by Sharon.  I really like the paper and the layering.  Shoe box today with Julie & Denise.  Always something to look forward to.

The stamp set is new one from StampinUp called Awesomely Artistic

Here's my shoe box card.  I love this background stamp & the rose.  I'm going to send more cards with bookmarks.  Nice little gift I think. I used a perforating tool so all you have to do is tear or cut the bookmark off to use it.

This was the card I made for Pam for her birthday.  Forgot to mail it so it was late.  The hello is a die from Hero Arts. Stamps are from StampinUp Butterfly Basics set.

Here's another thank you card I  did last week.  I think I over stamped the background but decided it was OK. the doily is stenciled and then I added  some shading to the edges.  I need to get focused.  Lots I need to do but where is my ambition??

Here is a thank you note I sent last week. I am lovin' this flower die. The thank you is a font I really like. The center of the flower is colored in with stickles.

Here's another bookmark card.  Denise let me keep her bluebonnet dies so I will be making some more this week.  The background is a stencil.

Don't think I showed you this card that Denise designed for shoe box.  Orange and blue are opposites on the color wheel but I would never have thought of using them together.  I really do like this card and colors.

I made some bookmark cards for the gift shop.  Here is the first one.

This was my swap card.  Saw something similar on Pinterest & liked it so I made one.  DS is StampinUp.

Here's a nice masculine card that Julie made for us to do @ shoe box.  She says masculine cards are hard for her.  I think not!

I am posting late today because we just go back from Houston where we attended a welcome home party for out grandson.  Thankfully he is back from Afghanistan.  The card I have to show you today is my shoe box card, regal rose and crumb cake.  Pretty simple but I like it.  Love this flower die.

Can you believe I did not use an embossing folder on this card?  I used this as my swap card and the colors were inspired by the card I showed you earlier that Denise made.  We had a yellow and purple guest room in one of our houses in Tucson.  Great color combo.  Love this flower die.  The center of the flowers is a hole punch.

This card was one of Pam's. m She made a frame and then we sponged on the color to make the triangle.  We then stamped the images.  Doesn't show well due to the camera operator but it really a pretty card.
