These are my favorites this year! I will do many more of them, only with straight lines! ooops....
They don't come simpler than this! Real red, image embossed in white and white (non SU) ribbon. This goes to a Christmas class!

I cased this from splitcoast - but I added the SU champagne mist to the flowers from the petals a plenty embossing folder and frost white paint to the dove. This will go to the sweet girl that keeps my hair in shape. It will also have a pretty little bigz scallop envie inside with a token of my appreciation in it.
This was a get-well card I did for a good friend that got over the flu only to have a serious infection in the wake - this is the cute ladybug from Very Punny and a single stamp i found (Mike's?) to make a bug me anytime stamp a heard you caught a bug stamp - it made a nice card for a guy also.

Medallion Birthday Card

I posted this on splitcoast - my first post! This is my daughter's almost belated birthday card. Her birthday is the 23rd so I will just make it! (since I can drive there!) I'm sure this has been done before, but I got my inspiration from watching my granddaughter do her card for mom. This is all SU! OOlive, Banana and WW card stock. Medallion stamp, Daisies #2 die, It's Your Birthday and Playground buttons.

These thank you cards were a gift to a bride and groom. They were a lot of fun to do.
Baroque Motifs and Lovely Letters. Again, small pieces - no brads, an improvement, but I think that makes me a slow learner!! haha
This was a fun box of suckers for my step-son's b'day. He liked it, but his kids maybe more!! Done with To the Nine's and Lovely Letters.
A lot of firsts here. These are the cards for my first class. Everyone really enjoyed it!
A lot of my early cards are direct cases of talented Splitcoasters - I just couldn't seem to make my cards look "finished"... The stamp is the now retired Say it with Scallops and retired Sweet Always dsp. These were some of my very favorites!
These were the first cards I was commissioned to do. That is such an important sounding word!! I did however learn a valuable lesson about promising 50 cards with small pieces and 4 tiny brads on each!! But with the help of my daughter Casey, and my good friend and stampin' bud Donna, the cards were done on time!

Some of my first cards

This was done for a friend that had broken her leg - the matching card and envelope with a yummy coordinated bar of chocolate that makes anyone feel better!

My first post!

I have been working up to this for awhile. And now i have actually done it! So I guess the thing to do is learn as I go!
