Here is another card for Evan. I used this stamp a lot when I was doing birthday cards for the VA. I was no longer able to get their birthday dates because of a privacy issue. Too bad because I really enjoyed doing that.

This is the state bird of Texas. I made this card thinking that I would stamp a large Texas shaped stamp and then pop this up on it. Bird's too big for that. We are sending our grandson cards to keep his moral up while he is doing basic training for the Marines. This is one that we sent.

A different way to highlight. I found it very difficult to get the squares the same size. Should have measured more carefully. I do like the end results.

I could not get this card to post this morning. There are some nice sayings in this get well set. It's a clear mount and I'm not sure who makes it.

I am like a fish out of water without my studio! I am so desperate I took everything out of the china cabinet, dusted cleaned all the glass etc. Something that was bugging me! Today it's cleaning out under the sink. I'm not sure what is lurking under there. Today's card is a re-do of a Z line card. I did one earlier for shoe box but was not happy with the alignment. This one I tried to put the balloons behind each other when the card was closed. Looks better I think. Here's the results. 1

The painting is not finished but I set up the computer so I can post. This card is a great design that Denise did for our shoe box group. I don't have that many blue inks but maybe you could get the same effect by stamping and not re-inking with a couple colors. I like the multi layered sentiment. I never think to do that.

My computer is down for a couple of days. We had crown molding put in the studio so I have to caulk and paint before we can move things back.

This card was designed for shoe box by Pam. My first attempt was a disaster. I had way too much stencil. This was my second attempt and looked much better. This is a really nice stamp.

Julie made this card for our shoe box get together. I have borrowed the punch to play with. Maybe I'll give it a shot today.

I am continuing to show our shoe box cards from last month. Here's one Pam did. This really nice paper & the gold embossing really sets it off.

Sharon made this card for shoe box. The stamp is Too Much Fun. We just stamped it in various heights. Simple but effective!

Shoe box is this weekend and I haven't shown you the cards we made for the last ones. This is a great masculine card that Denise made. She didn't much like it but we all did!

I made this birthday card for a neighbors grand daughter. The inside says There is nothing special about this card except the person holding it. Wish I could find this saying in a stamp.

I did this card as one of my swap cards. I haven't done a pop up card in a long time.

This card is my least favorite that I made to put in the gift shop. It just didn't turn out like I thought it would. That ever happen to you. Maybe I'm not a pink person.

Here's a quick card I made. First stamped the flower & sentiment with Crumb Cake. Too dull and drab. Added this Cranberry and liked it much better

I made this card for shoe box. I don't use yellow much but like this card.

I made another shaker card. This one was much easier than the first. Still a lot of steps!
