This card was made for one of my swap. I used Washi tape and my favorite corner punch & a button for the center of the flower. Not a real button but one I made using a Stampin Up folder "thingie" that Denise let me borrow. I cleaned out my junkie closets in my studio yesterday. Discovered I had some stuff I forgot I had. Now to use them all! Except I have to go buy more stuff so I can use the stuff I have . . . sound familiar?

Happy Memorial Day!! I sent this birthday card to my BIL. Can't get enough of these balloon dies!

This was my shoe box card. I used some new Washi tape on this one. I really like this bicycle stamp.

Here's a cute flower card that Pam made for shoe box recently.I finished a cork wreath for the gift shop yesterday. Have several craft projects that I need to get finished. Looking @ the rain forecast, looks like the next few days will be good for getting those done.

I worked on some sympathy cards yesterday and got one of my swaps in the mail before the due date for a change. Worked on my other swap card & did not like it at all. Decided to change the background from black to white and Bingo, works now. That ever happened to you? Today I am showing you a card that Sharon made for one of our shoe box get togethers. I have seen this technique before, looked too complicated to me. It really isn't but Sharon had it all mapped out so that made it easy. Can I remember how she did that, no! Should have made it again soon after then maybe I could remember it. Lot's to do this week. I am working on a couple of craft items that I want to get done before the end of the month.

Did not post the first time. Trying again!
Here's a Texas card that Denise made for the gift shop. It's a Dead Beat Design stamp I think. Look @ all the details.

I don't think I have showed this card, I made it for one of our shoe box groups. Love those little bird houses.

Whoops, I forget to give credit to Denise for using this card as one of her shoe box cards. Love the Turquoise & Melon Mambo colors! Gotta have that Melon Mambo & Calypso Coral. Both on my wish list.
I am late in posting today. With a 22 month old and a 7 month old it's pretty evident why they give babies to young women. I also know why they are called Great Grands! Such cute little boys!

This card was one that Denise made for one of our shor box get togethers. I think I need to use more of my DS paper!

This cute card was one the Pam designed for our shoe box group.

This card was designed by Denise for one of our shoe box get togethers. Today we are going to Blanco "junkin'" & lunch out & stopping in San Antonio @ Hobby Lobby & Michael's. My kind of day!

Here's a card I made for Kathy. Pretty Simple. This butterfly is a very old stamp from StampinUp.

This stamp is Dead Beat Designs. They have this saying but I did not see it when I ordered the stamp. It is computer generated.

I am having trouble posting again this morning. I am hoping this works. This is a simple card I made for an auxiliary member.

this afternoon to post It worked this afternoon. I made this card for shoe box a while back using the Basic Stitch Lines. Doesn't show up but it's there. This funky flower is a Magenta stampm that I hve forever.
I can not post a picture this morning. Guess the storm last night knocked some thing out. I'll try later.

This was my swap card a few months back. I don't think I showed it. The bird houses are a die from Paper Smooches. I have thought that it would be fun to cut them out of colored fun foam. Haven't done that yet because I can never think to get the foam when I am at the craft store.

I hope you all had a nice Mother's Day. I didn't do much. I got beautiful tulips from Trev and then talked with each of the kids. That's always a treat! I sent out some birthday cards and another card to my SIL using cards in my stash. Not into stamping @ the moment. Better get in gear as shoe box is Sat. I sent this card to an Auxiliary member for her birthday. Saw something similar on Pinterest. My cased cards never really look like the original but it gives me ideas which is good.

I made this card for Joe's sister who is recovering from surgery. Hopefully she can go home soon.

What a great use of washi tape. Love this card that Sharon made for shoe box.

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Here is a shaker card I made for my friend's 90th birthday. Not a very good picture & looked much better in real time. She really liked it. The silver glitter is washi tape which made for easy assembly but I had to use heavy duty sticky tape to get it to hold.The numbers are from a Cuttlebug Alphabet set.

Another shoe box card. This one was designed by Pam. Can't remember what I did wrong on this one but I do recall it was not a good stamping day for me. Love the strips & floral together.

I am late in posting today. This card was one Denise made for shoe box. I have never seen this embossing folder of the map of the US. Always nice to have a guy card in your statch.
