An 'udder Birthday Card.

This little cow by TAC is sooooo cute!  My sisters went to Arizona recently to visit a cousin of ours, without me I might add, as my DH was ill and I couldn't leave him, they had the joy of visiting the local Hobby Lobby there.  My cousin was kind enough to think of me, and sent me some DP and vellum papers she purchased there.  As her birthday is at the end of this month, I made her a card using some of the DP she sent me, even tho it was difficult to overcome my hoarding tendencies.  The DP happily matches with Razzleberry and Bashful blue and I had already made a few flowers using the Razzleberry so that worked out well.  I hope she likes it.

I made a few roses and ribbon flowers for one of my Pen Pal friends and I am making some for my Secret Sistah swap coming up soon, different colors of course.  Hope she likes them.

Stamp Simply #139

Our Grandson has a birthday coming up and I needed to get an idea of what to do.  I choose the Stamp Simply sketch #139, and that took the hard part out of the equation.  I am still loving my new K&Company Life's Journey DP.   It came together very quickly so thanks Sharon for the inspiration.

New DP in the House!

We went to Michaels on Sunday because I had a 40% coupon burning a hole in my pocket.  I did buy some stuff for my Pen Pal SS swap, but also found some yummy ribbon on sale for $1 and of course couldn't pass it up.  I also found this wonderful DP by K&Company called Life's Journey.  I really really like it.
I am not real happy with the bow but it will do.  I really like the rose on the second card and Ruby Red just happened to go really well with this DP.   TFL!

Boxed set Scallop

Several people have asked how I did the oval for the boxed set.  This is what is it looks like when it is cut using the George Cartride oval cut using the silhouette mode. 

I pulled the two pieces off the sticky sheet, stamped the inner oval, adhered it to the base of the card, then adhered the outer oval which I left white around it.

Aveeno Inspired

Just a simple card but it was fun to put together.  I saw an Aveeno ad on TV and really liked the colors so this is the result.  Easy Peasy.

Daisy, Daisy!!

This card is a part of a gift set I made for one of my sisters and for a friend.  The box matches this card for one set and the other set has a Razzleberry box.  I totally forgot to take a picture of the Crushed curry before I gave it away but I will try to photograph the Razzleberry one before I give that one away.  Here is what the entire set looks like.  I used all the SU "IN" colors because I had the textured cardstock, the pens and the ribbon to match.  The stamp set is from Cornish Heritage farms and I absolutely love it!!! I will be making some bookmarks with this stamps set.
