this one was cased from a swap i attended. same great daffodil paper, but i embossed and border punched. cool how you punch the flower out and use a dauber to color it daffodil and a then add dazzling diamond glitter and tiny yellow and white flowers for the center! the birthday is embossed and a tiny flower with a pearl center to hide a boo boo!

i did this for my inlaws 68th anniversary. they are just wonderful and i had a great time with the card! the bashful blue in the bird punch, she is in bride paper and he in groom paper. accented with a veil and a pearl flower, the gold heart was not my first choice, but 68 falls between light blue (60) and platinum (75) for colors - however, gold just looked better!

this is a simple one layer thing i picked up from sharon field. she is where i saw stamping with the clear blocks first - i love this set - river rock background, wasabi paradise leaf, and baja breeze eucalyptus, and sentiment. dazzling diamonds on the eucalyptus. going for a swap i hope to be involved in this next weekend!

cased from another talented stamper whose name escapes me - i try to keep names with cards, but sometimes they get away! hers is very similar to this - same colors, but i tipped my flowers with some color. daffodil,mustard, real red and garden green, and the swirly die. it is gonna be a birthday card... hope she likes it!

Purse # 2. This one uses the cherry blossom embosslit and sweet stem embosslit - and were incidentally added to the purse later...

Purses for prizes at a golf tournament, golf balls and tees inside with a matching gift bag and card for later use! These winners seemed pretty happy with these!

Last sympathy for awhile, I hope! The 5th Ave flowers are embossed in gold on watercolor paper, lightly touched with saffron for a bit of color and the background watercolor paper, very lightly touched with celery to give the card some depth.

Another sympathy - Trendy Trees, Sweet Pea dsp, some oversize brads and embossing and it works well as a more masculine card.

Tough to do sympathy cards, but this one in mellow moss with the scallop punch (yay i got one to come out!) and the butterfly embosslit was very easy to put together.

Another wonderful birthday card, simple flowers touched in pink, and the Happy Moments stamp set again, and a tiny ribbon to cover a minor boo-boo! An embossed sparkly cake on the envelope.

This is a birthday card for a golf bud - very pretty irl! Sparkles on the cameo pink flower, edged in cameo and spritzed with champagne shimmer paint. little leaves sizzlet, and the lovely, retired sweet always dsp.

This was a fun Easter card I did for my sister to put a movie and dinner pass for her kids in (so she can babysit the newest, firstest grandson!) The lovely chocolate bunny, easter eggs, and whimsical words round it out - the basket was woven out of kraft.

Here are the cards that go in the basket. Bermuda Bay, black and white Bermuda ribbon, Happy Moments stamp set and the daisy die -

This one was completely cased from Angela McKay.
I was so taken with the colors, I changed very little, the basket went to a silent auction.

Here is another one with the simple flowers - looks completely different - a touch of elegant eggplant and they begin to resemble pansies! A nice little wood textured pot, sweet pea paper and voila!!

This one is so simple! Bella toile background stamp and simple flower embosslit, with blue crystals in the center. All in ballet blue and white.
