Another Bride

My golly I've been to a lot of showers and weddings lately. Well last evening was no exception. I needed a card, QUICK! So here's what I made. A cute paper with a complimentary card stock. A couple of punches. A sentiment, which was computer generated. A couple of pearls. A lot of love. Hope the bride-to-be enjoys it cause I sure did like making it for her.

Wow do these cards take a lot of work! But boy are they worth it. I don't think I will be mass producing shutter cards but they sure are fun to create. There are great directions for making these cards on You Tube. Try making one soon!

Metal and Whateva!

This weeks challenge at is to use metal in your card. So here's what I call my desk-topper. A little 2.5" by 3" easel card to set on your desk or vanity. Add a sentiment, a couple of shiny metal brads, and there ya' go. I send them to friends who might need a little encouragement. We've all had days when it's hard to smile. This card is kind of a tongue in cheek reminder that we've all been there. Simple and to the point...SMILE!

CHAPTER 25: White Rabbit, White Gloves, White Wonderland...

Special Thank You

These were made for some very special people to say thank you for the help they offered as I moved my daughter into a new home. Again the same digi design from meljensdesigns. A small 3" by 3" card. Colored with Copic markers, I love their gigantic color selection, a little sparkle,ribbon a computer generated sentiment and persto change-o a quick thank you!

So Very Difficult

Sympathy cards are the hardest cards to find. They either seem too sappy or just don't say the right thing. I made this for a friend who just lost her mother and thanks to meljensdesigns I found the perfect image. I colored it with Copic markers, layered a polka dot paper behind it, rimmed it with blue ink, added a little Sticklers, a jewel, a ribbon and sent it off hoping to let them know I care.

Congratulations Dad and Jan! After 40 years you two should kick up your heels and are the perfect pear! This card was made for my dad and step-mother. They're great. I used the "Pears" image from Squigglefly, Angie Davis is the artist, to make an easel card. Colored it with Copic markers, added a little ribbon and a heart charm.

I hope it reminds them how special they are.
