Dusted off & starting again!

WOW! It's been  awhile since I updated my blog. I had to blow the dust off to get started. :)

Build a Blossom

This card is a total CASE from Mary Fish.  Check out her beautiful work at : http://stampinpretty.typepad.com


Bookmark Card…….

Here’s another swap I made for our weSTAMP group.  This is a standard A2 card AND has a pull out bookmark.  I put tiny magnets on both ends on the back of the bookmark.

The magnets help hold the bookmark down on the front of the card.


It also will hold it down in the book you are reading.


I used the Two Tags die to create the bookmark.  It slides down inside the Pretty in Pink layer and the Early Espresso card base. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Smile

Catching up……..

Posting some cards---time got away from me!

Cardholder for blog


Here’s a swap I made for March weSTAMP.  We had to make a  3-D item.  This is a gift card holder. If you look closely at the bottom left of the card, you can see I used the slit punch to create a spot to keep the card closed.

Up Up and Away

Up Up And Away!!!
Here's a picture of a card I made for our daughter and her husband.

The idea came to me after we decided what we were going to do for them as they are celebrating an anniversay and birthdays.

The gift we gave them is a Hot Air Balloon ride. It includes a champagne breakfast with the balloon landing on the desert floor where a table is beautifully set for them. Romantic, don't you think?

Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point,Ice Cream Parlor ribbon & buttons.

Surprise for a Friend

Ever feel really good about doing something totally unexpected for someone? Yesterday was that day for me. My friend Lorri Heiling at stampingaddict@blogspot.com has helped me tremendously along the way with card making. What better time to thank her than Valentine's Day! This idea was inspired by Sarah at sarahsinkspot.com

Papa's Treats for Work

My husband loves to give gifts. Valentine's Day makes that real easy for him. These are the little treats I made for him to hand out to his staff.
All the products used are Stampin Up except for the ribbon. The large Square Scallop came in very handy to make this candy bar holder.
