Be Thankful

I made this card for my daughter Elaine who calls me every day to see how I'm feeling and how my day is going, even though she is a new mother and exhausted with newborn baby duties...I am so very Thankful for Her!  All papers used were scraps except for the dark purple card base!  The sentiment outside and inside the card  is a freebie from A Piece Of Heart , die cut & framed with Spellbinders Labels Four Nestabilities. The background embossing is from Paper Studio and the flower & leaves are die cut from Spellbinders Rose Creations set. I chalked the edges of the flower & leaves, don't know if you can see it from the photo.   Sorry for the bad photo..although you can't tell, the sentiment and embossed background are on WHITE paper!  Thanks for stopping by to see my projects!

Happy Birthday Will

I made this card for my son William's 24th birthday.  Kind of kiddish you might say for a 24 year old, but he really is still like a big kid. He left our home and moved out to Oklahoma  a couple years back searching for a career and some adventure...not having any idea where it would lead him!  It broke our hearts and we've only seen him a couple times since then though we've talked, texted & emailed a lot.  One of the first adventures he went on after arriving there was to take flying lessons! OMG!!  Then he uncovered a career opportunity that involved using his talents and might suit him well.  He's making his way in the grown up world now, and we're just hoping that it eventually brings him back home here with us!!  Anyway..he just recently completed his solo flight lesson and I thought this would be a really cute birthday card for him!!  Below the card is a  close up picture of him in the plane at his first lesson with that crazy "Oh Wow..this is going to be fun" look on his face!  The airplane & sun were cut from the Cricut Boys Will be Boys cartridge,  the grass from Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge, can't remember which cart the cityscape was cut from.  The sentiment is cut & stamped from Jillian Vance Everyday Flags and the twine that connects it & the plane is from Scrapworks.com.  I chalked up the grass, cityscape and sun.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!!

Precious Gift

Well I started this card out as a birthday card for my grandson Kenney who will be two years old Nov 25th.  I wanted a cute little boy image, I thought this one was perfect, except that the teeny tiny tag on the gift says "From Santa".  Not that he would even know of course what it said, but it bugged me, so I'll have to make him another one!  So I decided to make it a Christmas Card.  I purchased this image a short time ago and can't for the life of me remember where I got it...I usually keep better track!!  Anyway...I colored him using Promarkers & Spectrum Noir markers, and just have not mastered how to keep the colors from bleeding outside the image..will take hours more of practice I guess!!  The papers are from My Mind's Eye "Countdown to Christmas" pack...my most favorite pack of paper ever!  The image was cut out with Spellbinders Lacey Ovals die, and the sentiment shape cut out with Jillian Vance's Everyday Flag die & stamp set.  The actual sentiment is from Pure Innocence "In a Manger" set.  The red diamond's are Sticko Tile's Play Mosaic Stickers that I've had forever and never thought I would use!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

I made this card for my granddaughter Addison who will be baptized in a couple of weeks.  I wanted to try and make it simple but elegant, and I think I managed to pull it off!!  The pink paper is from Paper Studio.  The pink embossing was done using Hero Art's Design Block Flourish & Stampendous embossing powder.  I found the Baptism saying from an online site, punched it out and matted it using some Marvy punches.  The pearls & ribbon are from my stash.  Thanks for stopping by to see my creations!
