Many May Birthdays and a Wedding Shower

One of my Sunday School class members had a wedding shower recently and this is the card I came up with for the occasion. I thought it turned out quite elegant, and I love the verse inside.

Then it seemed there was one birthday after another in the month of May. These are some of the cards I made to send out for the May birthdays. And the month is not over yet. I still have a few more to go.

I love this crimped envelope design. A friend demonstrated this technique at a stamping group I belong to.

Here is a flower my friend Trish showed me how to make using 8 scallops. I used white cardstock, inking the ends in pink passion. Spray a bit of water on the scallops and crumple them up into spitballs. Then straighten them out, layer all eight and attach with a brad. Spread out and "walla" you have a beautiful flower. I added the leaves from Stampin Up's Bird on a Branch for an added touch.

Well until next time, it's back to the craft table. I've got to get busy on 3 sets of ATC's for some swaps I'm in, as well as a few more cards.

Please feel free to leave comments.

April Fool's Day

I can't believe March is over already. Time sure is going fast. I've been busy the last couple of days working on my income tax............grrr! Now that IRS has been sent their money I can get back to playing. LOL! I just purchased a Tim Holtz Vagabond and am so ready to create. I did manage to squeeze in time to make one card though.

The background was embossed with the square lattice embossing folder. The circle is decorated with a ruffled ribbon and the little girl is colored with copic markers (which I am just beginning to learn how to use.) The sentiment was cut out with the Spellbinders fancy tags and embellished with 2 half pearls which I colored with my copic marker to match the paper.

Have a wonderful day......I'm off to my craft table.

Been Away Too Long

Wow, I just realized how much I've neglected posting to my blog. Time to catch up a bit. I've been so busy the last year participating in ATC swaps and different stamping and groups, that I
have tons of projects to show off.

These are a few of the cards I've had fun with. Most of my creations come from copying other peoples' designs and I really appreciate so many people sharing their different techniques . I have only begun to scratch the surface.

Here are a few of the projects I've worked on recently. Feel free to leave comments or suggestions.
