This card was done by Sharon for shoe box.  We masked off the center of the card stock and colored the border then stamped partially on each layer.  Hers had more definition then mine.  I'll have to give this  technique another try.

Denise designed this card for our shoe box group.  Love the colors of this happy winter card.

This was one of Pam's shoe box cards.  This butterfly stamp is hugh.  We cut it down where we wanted to and colored it.  I got my swap card designed yesterday, finished the laundry & made a trip to the grocery. Maybe  today I can start a craft project.

Sharon made this Valentine for shoe box.  Nice card.  Not sure what is on my agenda today.  Think I'll work on a craft project & finish up some laundry.  I also need to get my smaller swap cards in the mail.  Hmmmm such decisions!

Here's my second shoe box card.  This die is made by Darcie and I love  it.  Cutting out the butterflies was challenging.  Maybe a lighter color would not be so hard.

This was  one of my shoe box cards I made using my new die  set of balloons.  There are 7 sizes and is made by Poppystamps.  I got  it from 123 stitch.  If you have not used this company I suggest you give them a try next time you need something.  Her service is excellent and postage is very reasonable.  I have made 2 cards using this die set and was very happy with the results each time.

I made this birthday card for one of the Elk ladies.  Pretty simple.  Got the cards made for the fund raiser and delivered.  I'm happy to say that some of them sold last night.

I was invited to join a birthday group that goes to lunch once a month.  Right up my alley!  You bring a card for each person whose  birthday is that month.  There were three this  month.  Here is one of the cards I made. I have one more card to  make for the Elks fund raiser and today is shoe box so I need to get a card made for that.  The good news is I have ideas for both cards & shoe box is @ 1:00.  Should be able  to accomplish that.  Getting  the stamp room  cleaned up is a challenge.  It is trashed!

This card was for an Auxiliary member.  Perfect Plum which I don't use much and I am not sure if it even available any more. I have 6 cards done for the Elks and will try to get them done today.  Shoe box is tomorrow so I need to get  my card done for that as well.

I think this was my swap card.  Haven't used this stamp in awhile.  Shoe box was lots of fun Sat. and we made some terrific cards.  I only got 2 cards made for the Elks yesterday,  Gotta get in gear today!  I need to have them ready by Wed.

Here's a different card I made.  After looking @ it I'm not sure I like it and don't remember who I sent it to. A little grunge  and some figured paper and star punches.  I think I need to stick to my regular style, whatever that is!!

A birthday card for a friend who's birthday is Dec. 27.  With Christmas so close I  think it would be a bummer.  I have been ask to  make some birthday cards for an Elks fundraiser.  I'm hoping to work on them in the next few days.

I made this card for shoe box.  I like the way it turned out.  I can see it in many different colors.

This  is the card I made  for Alex for his birthday.  I have some of this map paper somewhere but couldn't find it so I took  a picture of a large Atlas and then  cut  it up.  Of course I found it the day I  mailed the  care.  Figures right!!

Here is Benjamin's birthday card.  I must admit that I like making masculine cards and miss sending them to the guys @ the VA. Privacy laws are just stupid in some cases.

Seems like all I make is birthday cards.  Here is another one.  I was trying to do something different.  At first I wondered about the color combo but decided I liked it after all.

Another birthday card.  This is a stamp that was made by Hero Arts.  There are 4 in this set.  They retired it but brought it back.  The brown is Brown Sugar, a color I don't use too often.

I made this card for Trev for his birthday using the Stampin Up Lovely as a Tree set.  I need to work on laundry and finish up some craft projects.  I am doing a bird house chandelier for  a fund raiser for the Elks that I want to get done today.  That should not take too long.

I believe I made this card for shoe box.
 The background stamp is an old Hero Arts wood mount stamp.  I really need to use my background stamps more.  The big ones would be easy to use since I got the Misti.  I like the colors on this one.
