I got the inspiration for this card from my church today. The background on the bigscreen during worship was very close to this. It is funny sometimes, I just see a card when I look at something.

I used:

Real red and basic black card stock
basic black ink for background sponging
staz on for best wishes (sorry that it is blurry)
bleach for Baroque Motif stamp
Valet ribbon
blingy diamonds (non-su)

I hope you are having a Happy Sunday!!!

I made a couple of sympathy cards. My husband is a chiropractor and lately he has been losing patients. It seems like they are all of the ones who have been patients of his since he started. Some of them were patients of his dads 25 years ago when we both worked at the office before my husband became a chiropractor. It is always sad for him and he always likes to send a card to the family to let them know he is thinking about them.

Anyway, on to the cards.

Stamps: Refuge and strength
Paper: To the Nines DSP, kraft, basic black
Ink: versamark and stazon
Ribbon: black from the Valet
The pearls are from Micheal's

Give the ones you love a hug today!!!

Tart and Tangy

I really think I need to take a photography class. I can never get my pictures just right. I see some gorgeous photos and I am always so jealous. For this card I wanted to use some of my new stuff. I love when that SU box arrives. It is like a birthday or Christmas all over again.

Stamp set: polka dot punches
Paper: rose red, kiwi kiss, regal rose and Raspberry Tart DSP
Paper piercer and new SU eyelet border punch
Ribbon: Rose red
The green jewels are non SU

Have a great day

Valentine's, Quick!!!

This is the card I made for my hubby. I wanted something simple because I have been sick and had no energy or desire to stamp. I can no longer get away with giving anyone anything but a homemade card. LOL!!! I used the love you much stamp set. The new tuxedo ribbon( it is awesome, I wish it came in a bigger roll), and new punch (I can't remember the name, I lent out my catalog till I can buy more) but it is stampin-up. I used real red and whisper white paper. The image is stamped with stazon and real red for the heart.

This is the card I made for my daughter. She is a lovey dovey. The image is embossed with black embossing powder, then cut out. I used basic black and craft paper. Again I used the tuxedo ribbon and the border punch.

I hope you enjoy yoiur Valentine's Day, I am off to the dunes for the weekend.

Boys Birthdays

I don't know. I always have a hard time with boys, or manly birthday cards. I whipped this one up for my best friends sons birthday. I used the star punch which made it very quick. I used windsor knot knot designer series paper with old olive background. Each star is whisper white, baja breeze and old olive. I used a circle punch on the dsp and then a brad to finish each one off.
I also used a strip of old olive ribbon.

Have an awesome day.

I don't know about you but I am tired of sickness going around my family. I have been exposed to many kinds of illness this past month as I am sure you have to. It finally got me. I have been feeling awful this week and finally a little better this afternoon. Yeah!!! I hate being sick.

The card above was made for one of my best friends who lost her sister to breast cancer this week. It has been a long, hard road for the entire family. They are in my thoughts and prayers.

sweet stems
windsor knot
chocolate chip, so saffron, whisper white, old olive
cuttlebug, top note die, watercolor crayons, old olive ribbon, old olive inkpad, ticket punch

I hope that is it. Hope you have a great day and stay healthy.
