Stargazer Lily Birthday Card

Today's card is one I made special for my sister.  I know she happens to like stargazer lilies, so I thought why not put one on a card for her.  I used the colors and idea similar to my first clematis card.



Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Artistic Etchings

Well, I'm finally ready to start blogging again after a much needed break.  I had a nice getaway to Gatlinburg, Tennessee last week and have been busy getting cards ready for my July Stamp a Stack this week.  Here are a few pics of the trip.  Nope, that's not me in the pic...I wouldn't get that close!  The momma is in the woods and that's her first cub.


Here are her second and third cubs.


I was able to get a nice shot of this butterfly when it decided to rest a minute. :)


These are some beautiful falls we hiked up to...


And now finally to today's card.  It's from last month's stamp a stack that I never posted.  It was also my favorite card out of the five I had for the ladies to make that night.



Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Little Lamb Baby Card

When I asked the ladies what kind of cards they would like to see at the stamp a stacks they requested baby cards.  I had a hard time coming up with something though!  If it was just boy or girl it wouldn't be so bad, but trying to come up with one that would be good for both...not so easy.  Then I remembered a little lamb I had made for my nieces b-day card and thought that would be cute to put on a card.  I finally managed to come up with this. :) 


A closer view of the little lamb. :)

Another Strawberry Birthday

Wow am I being lazy about blogging lately, although I finally have all my flower garden areas weeded...whew!  I need to work on that a little bit every day instead of once a week!  Now maybe I can spend a little more time making some cards. :)  This is one of the feminine b-day cards I had the ladies make at my June Stamp a Stack.  Oh, I got the idea for this from Barb Mann!


Thanks for looking and have a great day!

June SAS ~ Sympathy/Thinking of You Card

Ok, I need to quickly get a card posted today before I head into work.  Today's card is one we made at my June Stamp a Stack.  I seem to be stuck with a certain color combo though.  I really like Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla together, but they seem to be the perfect combo for sympathy/thinking of you cards.



Thanks for looking and have a great day!

4th of July Birthday

Today's card is a little out of character for me, but I was "kind of" challenged to give it a try.  I'm glad I did...I had a lot of fun making it and like how it turned out. :)  I've never done a patriotic card before and wondered who I would give it to if I did. Well, we have a lady from our church who makes cards for everyone on their birthday (that's a lot of cards!), and I thought why not make it for her when I found out her birthday is July 4.  Oh, I almost forgot...my idea for this came from The Friday Mashup.  Thanks for the little push, Kasey! ;)


I couldn't decide which picture I liked better, 
so I just put them both on. :)


Thanks for looking and have a great day!  

Stamp Set:  Afterthoughts (retired hostess set)
Card Stock:  Night of Navy, Real Red & Whisper White
Classic Stampin Pad:  Real Red
Punches:  Decorative Label & Boho Blossoms
Jewels:  Basic Pearls

I cut seven real red strips and six whisper white strips 5 1/2" x 5/16" for the stripes.  I trimmed the edge with a paper cutter after I had all the pieces on  for a smooth finish.  Not sure what size I made the blue...I was making it at two in the morning! ;)  I just know I made it big enough to fit the twelve flowers!

Artistic Etchings

Wow has the last week been busy for me!  I bet most of you can say the same thing.  Seems like I was either working on my cards for my June Stamp a Stack, at work or somewhere on the go!  I hope the next couple of weeks slow down a little bit!  
Today's card is one I thought about using for my stamp a stack, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for.  It seems like I come up with an idea, but my first one is never quite the one.  Anyone else have that problem?!


Thanks for looking and have a great day!
