Get Well

I needed a get well card and I didn't want to labor over it. I was cleaning out and sorting my papers and came across this older  Cosmo Cricet paper that apparently I was hoarding! I love the roses and it matched perfectly with Stampin'Up!, Rose Red. I used  the 2 1/2" circle punch  and a retired stamp by SU, Perfectly Penned, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and the retired Lattice Folder and the Essentials paper piercing pack to complete this  card.

That's about it for today. I hope you are having a relaxing and crafty weekend. I'm almost finished with the my reorganization in my Studio. It seems like every several months, and maybe you can relate to this, things need to be purged and organized.

A Quick Little Guy card

Today I am posting a card that I have made for one of my grandsons who is celebrating his 3rd. birthday at the end of this month.

I just recently bought this set, Boys Will Be Boys, knowing that I would be able to use it for my 4 grandsons.  I just love the images and I know the guys will also. I paired it up with Crushed Curry CS, Basic Grey CS and Real Red CS. I just love this combination and adding the strips of Flashback DSP just set the card off. Actually, this card could be considered  QUICK. I think even after cutting, embossing, and piercing, it took me maybe 15 minutes!

I'll will be linking this over at SweetSunday240 and Seize the Birthday for this Wednesday. Why not stop by those blogs and take a look at the wonderful creations posted by other paper artists.

SU Products
Large Polka Dot EF
2 1/2" Circle Punch ( larger circle non-SU! )
Real Red Ink
Neutrals Candy Dots ( Basic Gray)
Stampin' Dimensionals
Mono Liquid Glue

On a non - crafting note. I'm going to cook MahiMahi for the first time tonight. Some sweet friends brought it over to us last night, freshly caught, not frozen.  I hope I don't ruin it!

I hope you have a relaxing and CRAFTY evening my friends.
