It's Your Day!

Just a quick post today. I finished up a card for my grandsons 8th. birthday which will be this Sunday. It closely resembles a Dallas Cowboy Jersey. I hope he thinks it does! The only thing I would have done differntly is not put mini demensionals on the silver stars. Oh well, I guess they will have to stay.

I'll be linking this over at Seize the Birthday today.

Owl EOS Holder

Posting today a picture of one of the favors I created for my daughters Baby Shower next week. CRICUT made the cutting so easy. The assembly was fairly straight forward , but it took a little time. Especially those beaks! I wanted all the lip balm to be the same color and purchase it in bulk (10 or more) so Amazon was my choice.

SU Card Stock - Night of Navy, Berry Burst, Shaded Spruce, Tangerine Tango

Thanks for stopping by. Now that I have this project off my list, on to creating Thanksgiving cards and treat boxes for family, friends and grandchildren. Have a great weekend and go do something you LOVE!

Wishing You the Best Birthday Ever

Hello there! Just a quick post today. I just completed making a card using the Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder.  I like this one as much as her original. Once you get making these easy wreaths it's hard to stop. The most difficult part for me is choosing colors and which stamps I want to us. This card I will be linking to Seize the Birthday card challenge.


Stamps: Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder, Sentiment from Gina K Original Wreath Builder, MFT "Twice the Wishes" for inside sentiment
Paper: SU Old Olive, So Saffron,Neenah 80# Solar White Extra Smooth
Ink: Gina K Ink Cubes, Sweet Corn,Fresh Asparagus,Tomato Soup
SU Share What You Love Artisan Pearls(So Saffron) , Pearl Basic Jewels , SU Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Circle Die (unknown)

Well I'm off to clean up my space and maybe create another card. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend, and as always, Go Do Something You LOVE!

Happy Birthday

Just a quick drop by today. We will be heading to a family get together with family from NY. and a Birthday Party for our granddaughter Amelia who was 5 on Thursday.  I almost forgot to take a photo of the card I had made her using the fold I used on 2 previous cards (extended Z fold ) I like to do that with each of my cards to a photo record of each of them. Most of my cards I make double of, but with family I make just one special design for them.

I also decided to link this over to Seize the Birthday challenge. Although they have the options for Foliage, I'm just adding a non option card today. I went through my stamps sets deciding on what I would use for the foliage option and have narrowed my selection down to 2 stamps set. Hopefully in the next couple of days I can create one and add it to the site.

SU DS paper(ret.), SU Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, SU Gold Glimmer Paper, and Neenah Solar White for the card base

Happy Christmas

I finished up a card today that I will be linking up over to the CAS(E) sketch challenge. As I'm still in the process of using my 6x6 paper stash, I decided on one of the papers from SU's Joyous Noel Specialty DP. Both sides are lovely, but I chose the snowflake pattern for this card.

I'm slowly creating Christmas cards. Although I'm no where close to having what I need, I will have them by the mailing date said the "little engine who could." Of course, I still need to make Thanksgiving cards and favors for my daughters baby shower, Oh my and YIKES I say to myself!

Papers used by SU Tranquil Tide, Joyous Noel, Gold Foil
Stamp set: ret. More Merry Messages by SU
SU Gold Embossing Powder, Metallic Pearls
Snowflake die by MFT included in the Filled With Joy Card Kit
SU Softly Falling embossing folder

That's it for today. I'm off to make a few more birthday cards for my grand children's upcoming birthdays and tomorrow I'll work on the favors. Thank goodness for the my CRICUT! Have a wonderful and blessed day and go do something you LOVE!

Blow it Out / Happy Birthday

Hi all! I just returned from a glorious week in Longboat Key, FL with family. Perfect weather and no Red Tide, but I sure was missing my paper, stamps and ink. Today i had a chance to do some card making and am able to link up to Seize the Birthday before the deadline.

I was looking for something that I had not done before to stretch me a little. I've really been trying to get of my "comfort box". I came across Patty Bennetts site where she was demonstrating this card fold. She was using Tropical Chic, but I needed some more male cards for my stash. I only had two 6x6 pieces of paper and some scraps from Broadway Bound, but was able to create 2 cards. That always makes me a happy crafter. This is one of the cards below.

This  was simple to put together, but the choice of how I would arrange the paper took me a wee bit longer. I am happy with the way this one turned out. I keep the embellishments simple since it was a male card.

PRODUCTS USED: Card #1and #2
Stamp: MFT Twice the Wishes
Ink: Versa Mark
SU Gold Embossing Powder
Paper: SU Broadway Bound/Gray Granite
SU Stitched Shapes Framelits/SU Oval Die (SU ret.)
Embellishments: SU Metallic Pearls
Sizzix Embossing Folder (SU ret.)

This is card #2 which is a bit simpler. I had to use Gray Granite for the two front panels since I did not have enough of the Broadway Bound paper, although I am happy with the doted embossing folder which gave it a little more interest. Both cards have the base card to stamp a sentiment, but I was undecided what to use today. I'll add that before they are mailed out.

Have a great rest of the day and go do something you LOVE!

Another Birthday Card

I'm here today with another birthday card using the Wishing You Well stamp set another design from SU Frosted Floral . This also will be linked over at Seize the Birthday I so enjoy this site. It keeps me actively making Birthday Cards which I need for all my family and friends.

I decided on Mint Macarone for the base , the layering piece, and the ink for the spray. The sentiment is an older SU stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped lightly with black Memento Ink. I used a die cut from MFT to add some interest to the white panel and added dimensionals to the back. When I looked over my ink colors I decided on the retired, Hello Honey. It just looked the best with the Mint Macarone in my opinion. I highlighted it with Wink of Stella and added Mint Macarone tiny pearls.

Have a  wonderful day and go do something you LOVE!

Live Simply,
