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.
