I made this shaker card for our shoe box group.  I like it a lot.  Love the Hello die!  Normally we don't make our own cards but I thought this time it would be easier if I made one rather than trying to just tell them what I did.

Color on color birthday card.  Usually I use white or cream but I was up for something new when I made this card.  My StampinUp order came today so I am playing with my new stuff & hopefully I can add some more recipes to the flash drive.

I made this card for an Auxiliary member for her birthday.  She says she is going to frame it.  This DSP is  a small piece that I found in my scrap drawer.  Should go there more often maybe!

Here's  a shaker card I did.  The happy birthday is terrible to get out of the die but I think I found a way to do it.  I'm going to try today.  I need to make some more cards for the Elks.  I have been making Texas note cards but want to get a few more birthday cards done.

Here's a card I did that I like a lot.  This is a Darcie folder that I used but cut out around the design.  Used one of the fancy tags, some bling, a butterfly   and it's done.  Started again putting my recipes on flash drives and then I plan to print them out and put them in binders.  That should take forever since I have so many recipes stuck here and there with some on scrap paper.

This was made using the Tiffany frame, a punch and an embossing folder.  I love this die and there is enough places to add glue  that is easier than you might think.  I should know since I made 250 wedding invitations using this die!

Guess  what - - - another birthday card. Gray & pink is a very nice color combination.  I am always happy when I find a ribbon that comes close to the color of  the card stock.  I have so much I need to get done before Sunday.  Everyone comes to our back door & it looks terrible.  I spray painted some stuff our there and got paint on the concrete.  Told Joe I wanted to paint it before our party on Sunday.  So guess who is painting it today?  Love a man that thinks a woman can not paint as well as guys!  Now I get to work on a fun wreath to hang on the door. Sure do wish he thought he could clean better than a woman!

This was Julie's card  she made for shoe box last month.  Love the soft colors.  I have this set and need  to get it out and use it more.  Not a lot on the agenda today.  I'm going to the Point and then need to  clean up my stamping space. I really am a messy stamper.

Isn't this a great color combo.  Denise made this card for shoe box.  I have often used navy & green but never added yellow.  She  said she did that because of the bees.  Like this card a lot.

I don''t think I posted this card.  I made this about a year ago and decided to make it for the Elks.  I was scrambling to get 12 cards together before a Wed. deadline.  I do like the simplicity.  I finished my Feb. birthday cards yesterday.  Liked both.  Then worked on some more Texas note cards.  Tomorrow is shoe box and I even have a start/idea for that.  Going to San Antonio today to play @ Michael's and Hobby Lobby.  Hope I find the things I need - - -   Need??? probably not but I'm trying to keep up with electronic guru on spending.

I haven't made anything but birthday cards lately.  I love this folder inked before running it through the machine.  Such a pretty folder and so pretty when inked up.

Here's my swap card.  I stamped the image and then cut it out and popped it up.  Lots of cutting here.  Think I have too much time on my hands?  Actually it wasn't too bad.

Yet another birthday card.  This one I used an old ribbon border punch on the side of the card.  Made a bow and then stamped the saying.  I like the colors on this one.

Another card for the Elks.  The background is stamped with Milled Lavender,  then  stamped with Crushed Concord.  This was one of  the cards that I's put @ the bottom of my "best" list.  It sold the night I took them down there.  Go figure!

I did this card a while back I think it was a book mark card.  Had to have a quick card and could not come up with anything so I copied one.  I love this background stamp.

This was a card I made for the Elks.  I haven''t used this color combo in a long time.  I need to get my  Feb. birthday cards done.  Not too many to make this month.

I made this  card  for the Elks.  Hot pink and black.  pretty bold  color combo. I stacked the pink ribbon on  top of the black one, just  for something different.  Didn't get as much done yesterday as I wanted.  Oh well, it's not going anywhere.  Found a new cleaner for wood, glass and granite. It's Bees Wax and is in a spray. Made the glass top stove look great!  Joe did the arms on his leather chair.  Worked well for that too.  Laundry, more cleaning and a trip to the grocery.  Will I get  all that done?

I went back through my blog and found this layout that I did for one of the Va birthdays.  I decided to give it a try again so here is the results.  Lots of detail and using left over scraps.  Cleaning is on the agenda today.  I'd rather play with a couple of craft ideas I have.  Maybe tomorrow.

Here's one of the cards I made to donate to the Elks.  I decided to add the border die and that made a big difference.

Here's one of my swap cards using the poppy stamps balloons die that I got from 123 stitch.  I will use this set a lot.  It has 7 different size balloons and was very reasonably priced.

This card  Denise  made for shoe box.  Interesting color combo.  We sponged the different colors on the die cut.   I have this stamp set but have not used it much.  I like the placement of the pearls & the brown ink.

Here's another shoe box card designed by Pam.  Love House Mouse stamps!  I liked the "stacked" strips on the diagonal.  The party is over and Joe & I both thought it was a fun evening.  Now to turn in my keys and relax!
