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.

A quick little card honoring my sisters first grandson!
My first rose from the lovely ornament punch! Lots of fun to make and sprayed with a shimmer gold.
This was a fun card - 5th Ave floral impression folder, trimmed in platinum and water painted lightly in pink pirouette.
Last batch of notecards for a bit! These use Greenhouse Garden and some sponging on textured paper....
More notecards done with Sweet Pea dsp, and All My Heart.
Birds and Branches makes a great scherenschnitte note card! Very simple.
And another view of the Kind and Caring Thoughts. Done in razzleberry and white.
This is Kind and Caring Thought again, bermuda bay ribbon and cardstock.
This is Kind and Caring Thoughts with the new butterfly embosslit, on Bermuda Bay and Thoroughly Modern dsp. Post picture, I added some sparkles to the the flower with the two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds. It improved it dramatically.
This is a cute little baby card. Done to resemble a mobile -I used pretty in pink, neighbor dsp, teeny tiny wishes and animal stories stamps.
Yay! My new and improved blog!! Thanks to my wonderfully talented friend, Tiearra!! What a girl! Now I will get back to regular posts! A bunch for awhile to kind of catch up!
