Aunt Betty's BDay

Happy birthday Aunt Betty! I hope she has a great one. In case you were wondering what her card looked like, this is it. It had a nice soft look to it. I almost hated to part with it. It turned out rather pretty!


I've been concentrating on Christmas this weekend it seems. Downloaded a bunch of Christmas music to Napster. Put Newsong's "The Christmas Shoes" cd in my car. And decided to make some Christmas cards. These ones were done using SU's Snow Swirled set - a favorite for sure! Decided that I would try out the new Bermuda Bay and Mambo Melon cardstock and ink and I love those colors!!!

And Flight of the Butterfly...

Used the same combo on this one as on the Cheep Talk card. Got to use my new Martha Stewart butterfly punch with this one. It was fun doing this card.

Some Cheep Talk

Okay, that was a play on the name of the stamp set. Was rearranging in the craft area and found Sage Shadow, Basic Grey and Kraft cardstock. Really liked how they looked together so decided to attempt a card with them.

Embracing Life

Decided to pull out Embrace Life (probably my favorite set!) and Sweet Serendipity for this one. Loved the color combo here.

A new Sizzix die...

While Mom was in the hospital, I went to Joann Fabrics. They had this flower die for only $3.97! I couldn't just leave it there! Went home and made these two cards for her. One from Rascal and one from me...

One of Mom's get well cards

I made a few get well cards for Mom while she was in the hospital. This was the first and one of my favorites. The stamps were from Saltbox Studio. I knew I had to get this set when I saw those adorable candle images. Love, love, love candles!

Big Butterfly!

This card was entirely too easy! i was cutting up a spring stack from Die Cuts with a View the other day. Decided that the butterfly that was in the bottom corner was too perfect by itself. Just added a sentiment from SU's Sweet Seredipity set and some ribbon to finish it up. If only they were all this simple!

A set Dad likes!

When i saw projects with SU's new Autumn Days stamp set, I knew I had to get it! Used their new Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry cardstock and ink with it as well. Not sure I like this card, but it's the first one with a new set. It takes a little while to get used to new stuff!

Abbi's bday card

This is the card I made for Abbi's bday. Thought it turned out really cute!
