Mother's Day Card

Here's a little shot of the card I made for my mom for Mother's Day 2017. I used dies from Mama Elephant to cut window frames, window boxes and shutters. I used punch from Stampin' Up! for my cardinals, flowers and stems. The lacey border is a punch from Martha Stewart. DSP, ink and cardstock are all from Stampin' Up!

To make my cardinals I searched Google for a photograph of a male and female side by side so I could compare colors. My mom loves birds! In her living room she has her chair set up next to a window overlooking her backyard. She can sit for hours watching the birds come and go to her flowers and feeders.

I was fortunate enough to spend this Mother's Day with my mom as well as my dad, my brother and sister in law and my hubs. It was a beautiful day. Hubs cooked brisket, potato salad and green beans. I made a cake and we all enjoyed our meal, our day and our visit!

Hope all Mother's had a blessed day.

C4C386 Birthday Card

I must admit, I haven't played in a challenge in quite some time. But I really liked the looks of the sketch over at Crazy 4 Challenges this week. It allowed an opportunity to play with some new (for me) stamps and some new and old dies.
Included are stamps from Stampin' Up!, some Spellbinders and Marianne Design Creatables Dies. The ink is from both Stampin' Up! and Ranger. The DSP and cardstock are from Stampin' Up! as well.

4th of July Cards

Here I am again with more patriotic cards. These are for July's Independence Day. I have been commissioned by a little lady to make 30 4th of July cards. No 2 are exactly alike.

And they are all done and I am crazy about them all, if I do say so myself.

Late Night CardMaking

I don''t know about you but my creative juices always kick in long about 11:30 p.m. 😲😲 So I am usually up late nights creating. Last night was no exception. Here are the two cards I made before I turned in. 
The card below was created using DSP from SU! Warmth & Cheer. The die cut is from my friend Debbie Segler. The little bells charm is from SU!

The card below is mad from Stampin' Up! DSP Candy Cane Lane, the Cable Knit EF some old buttons and twine and Silver Bells Ring Flair Pin.

Below is a photo of my 4 month old puppy Suki' enjoying her backyard. She only weighs 9 lbs. She is a mixed breed puppy - Cairn Terrier and Dachshund. Isn't she just the cutest? One day last week she chased a squirrel from the right side to the left side of this backyard. She came very close to catching it! She's F-A-S-T!!!!

Play Date with Debbie Segler

The first card was created with SU! products from the embossing folder to the stamps to the dangling charm. This card is very CAS. So if you are in a hurry and need a dozen or more cards, this one can be thrown together in a jiffy! You could even change the colors of inks you use to stamp the trees.

Deb came over on Sunday. We played a while. I didn't get very many cards made, however...  Deb brought some beautful dies she had gotten for her birthday. OMW! I wanted to KEEP them! 
There were words like Peace, Jingle, HOHOHO, Merry, Merry Christmas, etc. You can see the Merry on the following card. The DSP and Merry Mice are from Stampin' Up!

This week at Sparkle Creations Christmas Card Challenges is to use GLITTER! SO if you look at the frame and scroll work surrounding my stamped sentiment you will notice my glitter. I am so enjoying adding glitter to my cards without having to sprinkle. A lot of the manufacturers are making glitter or sparkle cardstock these days. Isn't that simply fabby!!!😍
For my card I used some dsp from Echo Park Hello Winter scrapbooking kit. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Dies are from SU!Framelits Labels Collection (125598) and Spellbinders Botanical Bliss.
