Flower Shop with Elegant Greetings

Much brighter card than shows==below is the inside with one little pansy in the  corner.  Colors used are Pumpkin Pie and always artichoke along with matching designer paper--the greenery is from cardsock in Always Artichoke
This is one of my favorite cards from all time--it is difficut to mail and uses a higher priced stamp.  The laarge flower is from a punch.

There is a nice Happy Birthday greeting on the inside.

 simple, yet a fun card

cards from designer paper

These cards are made from SU designer paper which was in the Christmas catalog.  It is called, "Deck the Halls"name, and it was paper made to go with the new stamp set Bells and Boughs.  These ideas came to me via an email last week.  They are quick and I liked the look...and I'm behind in making my Christmas I'm finishing with these.

some new cards

The Christmas cards below are ideas from Sandi, the lady I made cards with in an earlier post.  Her website is full of ideas and she posts most every day.  Three of them are from the new stamp set, Bells and Boughs from SU, one is from scenic season, and the birthday card is from Because I Care--all from SU.  I am loving the new color, Cherry Cobbler, for Christmas cards.

blooming with kindness/because i care

There is anothr one called "some new cards".  It is stuck in the middle of some Chritmad cards.

Some time ago, I found the "black magic" procedure...and have tried a few.  This was my latest.  I still need to perfect it, but enjoy trying with it.

This is from SU, Because I Care, stamp set, as well as Elegant Impressions set.  The paper is a new color, Wild Wasabi. I used "nesties" for the mounting, and SU punch for the bottom of the background paper.

The bling on here is solid black, but came out such a strange color in the picture.
I used this for a sympathy card, with a sympathy verse on the inside of the card.
The front page verse is readable if you double click on card.

This is done with blackberry.  The marking beneath the ribbon is from he round finger sponge

Done on black--simple, yet nice.

Kids and Cards

Recently I had the family for dinner. (20 of us)  I wanted something to keep the kids busy during the afternoon.  For the girls I made up card  sets for the following cards.  I cut and put all pieces together in the envelopes, fixed a box with the inks, stamps, bling, etc.  and set up three stations in my craft room.  They had a ball and the youngest, did a great job, right along with the teen-agers.

Thankfully, it was a super day and the boys were out front playing football most of the afternoon.  We had a wonderful day.  There is nothing like Family, is there??

These are the cards.  The first one is cased, and I do not know to whom to give credit, but I think it is beautiful in its simplicity.

...and a good time was had by all!!
