Squiggly and Glittery Birthday


I have a very old stamp that is nothing but lines cross and wavy lines.  I do not know what company this stamp is.  I don't think I have ever used it!  That is so sad...to have stamps for years and they never felt the ink?  Do you have any ink-less stamps laying around?  I challenge you to use them!  At least once....

I started out by cutting the yellow cardstock size I wanted first.  I stamped a set of lines to the far right and far left on the yellow cardstock before I stamped the two middle.  I put the whole card together and then broke out the glittery stickles...orange, blues, greens, reds, green, purple and yellow dots were dropped onto the card.  

Nothing says celebration like glitter!

Pin Wheel, Spring and Birthdays

I have a birthday card I keep forgetting share with you all that I made at a Stampin' Up Card Class.  It is a fun birthday card and I love the color mix!  It reminds me of the days, when pinwheels showed up in stores.  Pinwheels always signified that spring had finally arrived! 


Have a great crafty day!

Happy Mother's Day!!

The best time ever...phones calls and skyping with my grandchildren and my sons wishing me a Happy Mother's Day! 

Today my husband is cooking a big chicken dinner and we will bring it over hot to my in-laws to celebrate Mother's Day with mom.  We always make sure to make plenty when we do this so they have left-overs for the next day. 

I made this card for my Mother-In-Law from a free Cricut file.  I backed it with a pink cardstock so the fancy cut would show up better.  I added a layered flower, branches, stickles for sparkle and butterfly's from Stampin' Up to top it off.
I am hoping it is not too busy for her!!



(looking up to heaven and whispering) 
Happy Mother's Day Mom

So Sorry Sunsets

 *SIGH*  Some cards are difficult to make.  I love to create...don't get me wrong!  It is the reason for the card that gets to me.  

These cards are to go to the local nursing home that I donate too.   Seems more sympathy cards are needed to send to the family members when they lose someone at the nursing home.  =(
At least my cards them feel a little bit better as it is combined with a personal note.



I used a circle Nestabilty taped down onto my cardstock so that I could sponge the ink in a perfect circle.  
(shhhhhh.....don't say anything but I always use the painters blue tape which I stole from my husbands workbench LOL.)  
 I love it as it holds very well yet is not too sticky to make it hard to remove after.  Also, I can use it several times before I have to throw it away.  
After I was done inking, I removed the circle, stamped the image and the "So Sorry" with black Momento ink.  Each card was basically done the same way but different..if that makes sense lol.
I hope you take time to look around.  You never know!  You might find something interesting!  
thank you

Peony Blues

A blue flower for a blue situation....sympathy.

I used a Stampendous stamp called Jumbo Peony and jumbo it is!!  
Because it is so large, I stamped part of the flower off the card.
It was colored with Twin Touch markers.
The "So Sorry" stamp and the top border paper was from Stampin' Up.


*hugs*
