I made this card for shoe box. I usually use this stamp with a flower set that I have had since I first started stamping. I like this flourish stamp a lot and the way this turned out. Also like this corner punch a lot. Didn't use it much when I first bought it but now that I have learned to turn it over to punch so I can get the corners all punched right you see a lot of it.

Here's Levi's birthday card. I was going to re-do it but time got away from me. He's 1 so he won't care. On the next one, I will put the balloons closer together and make the "strings" shorter.

This card is simple and easy to put together. The Pacific Point cardstock is a little bright for my taste. Yes, I do a lot of butterflies because I really like them!

Once I figured this spinner card out, I love making them. I will be putting some in the gift shop @ the Point. Lots of possibilities. This curved one really spins.

Here's on of my shoe box cards for this month. The leaves are embossed with some embossing powder that I have had for a long time. They still work which amazes me. I struggled to make two cards this month and finally made this one that I like.

I love this embossing folder by Darcie. I used a circle die and stamped on the white just for something different. It was a little tricky to get it centered.

Here's the card I made for Marilyn. For the butterfly I took 3 alcohol inks, two blue and one green and put it on glossy paper then cut out the butterfly. I had a 50% off coupon so I bought this butterfly die with 4 stamps of butterflies. The solid butterfly only embosses the pattern. On only one can you see the green ink. That's Ok, I like the card.

I can't remember to whom I sent this birthday card. I am blaming it on my lack of caffeine. This is a great stamp that I rarely use. Once I sponged colors on tile, then stamped this for a friend who had a den with animal print decorations. She never used them, said they were too pretty to use because she was afraid of messing them up. Go figure! Maybe I'll try that again with Alcohol inks.

Here's a gate fold Texas card I made. Love this stamp and the ink pad is Creole Spice by Kaleidacolor. I need to get some stamping done this week and Wed. is shoe box. I always look forward to that!

we lost power yesterday for just a second. Just enough time to have to reset all the clocks grrrrrr! Now this morning when I went to post it keeps going back to the last icon I was on. Very frustrating & the reason I am just now posting. I tried rebooting but that didn't work and I am not sure how i GOT here now. Anyway this pretty card was one that Pam made for shoe box last month. Very nice.

I bought this paper last time we were in San Antonio. Did not realize how bright it was. I'm blaming it on the florescent lights in the store. I made this card but I will never use this rest of this paper, way to loud for me.

Here's another Texas card. Didn't get the card at a very good angle. I worked on a couple of new designs yesterday. We went to the Celtic festival yesterday and had lunch out. That's my kind of day!

I borrowed this stamp from Sharon and made this card. I think it would look nice embossed with silver. I'm going to try that this week.

This is a nice technique that Denise did for shoe box. Love this patterned paper!

This is a card I amde for shoe box. The strips of black is card stock that I glued on to accent the flowers.

I needed to make a thank you note & since I had the bluebonnet dies out I used them to make this card. I feel like I am finally back in the groove and have lots of projects to finish up, not to mention Christmas cards which I thought I had a design for but didn't like the results, so it's back to the drawing board!!

Finally I am back to blogging. I received this as a swap card. I have been eyeing this die and stamp set. I love the way Marcy carried the design to the inside of the card.
