My project is finished!

Yesterday my lady friends and I met for lunch to celebrate our birthdays.  I had finished the little baggies with five cards each.
They seem to enjoy having the home-made cards.  We are a diverse group--the oldest is 89, two of us  are 78, one is 74 and one is 64.  All have been friends for years.  I told Tammy, the youngest one, that she was a real asset to our little group because in ten years she could drive us everywhere we needed to go!  She laughed....but I meant it!!  : )
Three of them are widows, and two of us are "unclaimed blessings"!

Here are the last two cards of the set of five.

This is from the Rainy Day set from pcCrafters images.

 This scripture is computer generated.  The paper is SU as well as the DP.  The bling and flowers are from my drawer and the leaves are from a Martha S. punch.

 (inside)  I punched out corners from the left-over DP, and pasted it on white.

The tags for the gift baggies!

Today's Crop!

These are made with SU Pacific Point and Melon Mombo papers, also matching inks.  They are from punches and nesties.  The verbage is from a SU set, which I borrowed from a friend and forgot to write down the name.

My! How time flies!!

Here we are half way through September and I haven't posted for quite a while.  I'm working on five sets of cards for a party a week from Sunday.  So, what I have below is a "Heinz 57" mixture.  A couple of them have been on my computer for over a month......that tells you how lazy I've been!

This is another "black magic" card, which I have since seen done on black and it is totally 'smashing'.  I'm in the learning process with this technique!
The stamp is Fabulous Flowers from SU and I totally don't remember the color.
As you can see from the verse, I used it for a sympathy card.

This card is made using the technique, 'Emboss Resist' which I am also learning.  I haven't had much time to experiment with it.  The flowers are embossed and shiny, altho it doesn't show in picture.  All materials are SU--again I've forgotten the reds--there are so many of them now that are somewhat alike.  I guess I need to start writing them down when I use them!!  The stamps are from SU Baraque Motifs.

This blurry card idea came from Mr. Google!  The set is Elements of Style, SU.  This is one of the cards from the give sets I am making.

This card is from grahics from pcCrafters.  I superimposed several of the graphics to get this look.  It is a much brighter card, than it looks here.  Again for the gift packets I am making up for next Sunday.

I shall try to not let so much time elapse.
