Thank You Cards

This 3-D tri flower thank you card makes me feel good just looking at it. Think how it could make someone receiving it feel along with your personal thank you note.

Like ladybugs? Need to thank someone? This card might be just the one.

Birthday Cards

I really loved the paper I began with and planned the card around that. I had fun with this card and hope you like it.

I found this cute honeycomb paper in a 6X6 pad "Country Drive" from Echo Park. I couldn't resist making it into a card.

I really love this combination of colors. It makes me feel good to look at them so I was very excited when I found this paper with all three colors in it. Hope it makes you smile.

I fell in love with the green and brown in this paper (picture doesn't do it justice--sorry about that).

Have you got someone who just loves the beach? This sand shaker card may be just the card to wish that person a happy birthday.

Do you find it difficult to make masculine cards? For me, it's the hardest! I do like the look of using Kraft paper and just the black ink. I think it's masculine and sophisticated. I inked the edges and raised it up as well.

Do you LOVE the hedgehog stamps as much as I do???
This card allowed me to make an original birthday card, using a hedgehog stamp. I added different balloons, some party paper and a strip of red.

Ever look at your scraps and KNOW you just have too many? That's what happened when I made this card. I used scraps to make the background on this card. It's really a nice feeling to create a card out of your scraps. Give it a try.

I used a single flower stamp and masked over as I went along. I used colored pencils. I later added three gems to the upper right hand corner of the sentiment.

4th of July Cards

I used a Cricut cartridge, but I used someone else's and don't remember what it's called. Now I need to find a sentiment.

I didn't like the top with the flag. I tried it again with a little different top and liked this one better.

I used pictures I found on Google to help make this 4th of July card. I layered the bottom picture and added Stickles to the top picture. I divided the top and bottom with ribbon.

The plate and silverware are cut from the Cricut cartridge "From My Kitchen" at 2". The background is cloth. I added a stamped ant on the plate.
