Today's card is for Daring Card Maker's challenge. I had this big stamp sitting on my work table wondering what in the world I was going to do with it..and along came this challenge. As I was working on this card, I decided it would be for my sweet, very bright, grandson, Nick, who, altho bound to a wheelchair, has a mind that soars like the wind. He has just received his semester grades, which are wonderful! The card is a little girlie looking, but he won't mind--He's used to my cards!!

The card is SU pink passion, as well as the ink.
The DP is from 'Berry Sweet' book by K & Company.
The flower is from Prisma.
The bling is from my drawer. I don't keep track of who makes them.
The stamp is one of four that I ordered out of a catalog last year.
The 'Awesome" is from 'Heart and Soul Rubber Stamps". The gal sells them mounted or just the rubber stamp, which is very cheap. She has lots of scriptures on rubber stamps.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sketches by Tamara

Tamara's sketch from last Thursday is below. I've had the stamp for quite some time, so wanted to try it and this sketch proved to work out well.

The two stamps are from SU 'Upsy Daisy'. The DP is also from SU. The cardstock and ink are 'Cranberry Crisp'. The bling is from my drawer and the picture is mounted on 3-D tape. The corner punches are from SU.

The color in real life is quite a bit more "alive" looking. It is not dull, as it appears in the pictures.

I needed some quick thank you cards, so used 'Cottage Roses' from the Daisy Company. The round circle is 3D.

Batter Up

I've been making some baseball cards for a project I am working on. I used "batter Up' from pcCrafters. My photography needs help, but you will get the idea! : )

Free Downloads plus a Challenge

I learned of this website, Funky Fairies Challenge Site, which sells down loadable papers and things, PLUS, they have some free downloads. Below are two of the things I downloaded right off the website and put together from some examples on the site. I thought they were pretty cute. The little pillow box just goes together so easily by scoring the lines right on the print out.

You have to scout around for the free downloads. They are on a second blog that you click on on the right hand side of the first page you come to.

I think you will enjoy looking at what they have. They downloaded easily, with no problems, and I hope to go back there to shop when I have time.

Here they are.

Spring is Coming!

A friend is retiring, so I made a set of cards for her. My images were from pcCrafters and DAISY company. They are a mixture from several sets. I used SU papers, and the bling was from my 'goodie' drawers. Much of my inspiration for this set comes from Machomama, who introduced me to pcCrafters...and has showcased many cards using their designs.

The black brads are the same size on the above card! Also the watering can is on raised 3D tape.

The inside has a smaller image of the front and a verse from the Psalms on top. I did the envelopes this time. When I stamp I always do that, but this was a bit trickier, as I don't know how to run smaller envelopes through my printer, so I temporarily glued the envelope to a sheet with the image on it, and ran it through to get the image on the envelope. (I'm sure you've all used that trick.)
