Birthday Goodies!!!

My two younger sisters made dinner for me on my birthday as my DH was not well enough to take me out to dinner as he normally does. Yum, homemade tortillas, chicken mole, (pronounced mo-lay, not the rodent) and refried beans. Annie made these purses for me as well as a skirt to match the gold one. She still needed to hem it which is why I don't have a picture of it yet. Janie made me a wonderful set of placemats which I will post as soon as I can. What a wonderful day and how nice to have them up here.

Tiny Blessings

I received a stack of Nursery CS last year and this is one of the sheets from it. Love the way it came out after much huffing and puffing and moving and just general "I don't like it". Used the CB baby die plate, made a pink rose with my new $1 Michael ribbon. Can you believe 50 yards for a buck. Of course it will last me a lifetime.

Soft Pink Vanilla Swirl

I did a couple of quick cards day before yesterday. I had this leftover piece of tissue paper that I had adhered to some freezer paper in a class I gave a long time ago. It wasn't quite enough to make anything with, or so I thought. I bought several rolls of ribbon on sale for a dollar at Michaels recently sooooooo, I made a rose with one, and a bow with another. I like the way they came out. Although getting them to stick to the paper is tough. I used Allene's super tacky glue, no luck. Then a glue dot, again, off it came. So I used a glue "line", same as a glue dot only longer. We'll see how it does.

What do these cards need?

I am counting on my good friends to tell me what I can do to finish this card. Does it need a ribbon? I was thinking a sentiment, maybe happy birthday, but do I put it on the top right or lower left? Looks really blank to me. This one is missing something too. Maybe a long sentiment at the bottom? Or should I just leave it alone?

Anti Card Challenge .......... Bookmarks!!!

Ok, I am so NOT anti card (sorry Laura). That is really all I love to do. I don't scrapbook, (very often) I mainly LIVE to make cards, mostly because they are fairly quick to make. But because I really need some bookmarks I took up this challenge. Here is the first, for my sister Janie. She loved it by the way and Annie wants one like it. I will probably make hers with a different scripture and a really rust base. Here is the second one. This one is mine. Only because I messed up when I stamped the scripture and did it too light. Don't you hate when your pad dries up? I went over it by hand but it will do for me.

Thanks for looking!!!!

Happy Birthday CASE

I saw this on someone's blog and I really liked it. I had done something similar a long time ago and really liked it. I just stamped the flowers in various reds and pink and then stamped the big flowers in versamark and embossed them with white EP. A simple, fast, thank you. Love the simplicity of it.
