This one, my granddaughter did for a friend. She never wants help - just flips thru, grabs a stampset or two, lots of glitter and goes to town! This is on black card, with some old purple ribbon layered with white. The flourish from Creative Elements and sentimeint from Perfectly Penned. The flourish is double embossed in concord crush, dobs of Tombow hold the glass glitter around the number. Beautiful inside also, and again forgot to get that!

This is the birthday card my grandson did for his mom. Her birthday is Nov. 23, so it falls right around Thanksgiving and so rarely on it!! He went right for the glimmer paper for presents and embossed HB in a green and red glitter that I have had for a few years - thought it would be great and never used it! His colors are Wild Wasabi and Artichoke. Very nice in person. Dang forgot to get inside pictures!

This one is for my golf buddy Linda. Sweet and pretty just like her. A top note die with dots embossing folder and the retired felt flowers. Pretty combo here. A definite case, but there was no name on the picture I saved... sorry. I did change the style of greeting and sponged around the top note. :-)

My husband went to pick up our BBQ order. The menu listed strawberry banana cake. He thought it sounded like a nice addition to dinner.
what he had pictured in his mind was nothing like what came out of the bag!! hahahahaha Just strikes the funnybone!!

The accessories die that goes with the stocking was used to cut metal sheets that were then embossed in colored embossing powder, glimmer paper circles for berries on the ivy, and all glued together with a paperclip on the back to make a cute little ornament... it is my 3D swap for stamp club this month.

Here's a fun new app i found for my phone! It's called paper camera and makes photos look sorta like drawings. Lotsa fun to play with. Always hard to get a pic of the kitty - he is very averse to that for some reason. I was so happy to get a photo of him - looks like he is biting his lip! lol

These were printed and then fussy cut - fortunately, they didn't take too long! I tipped the edges of the flowers in matching colors, except the calypso coral one - goofed and tipped it with peach. It didn't look too bad, so I kept it. These are paired with the matching digital sheets in the next post. The leaves are from Best Friends Forever.

This is the neatest stamp! It positively looks real when embossed! This one is in melon mambo on white with pearls. Pretty plain and neat all at the same time! I'm also certain I cased this from someone talented, but I can't find your name. Let me know for your credit!

a very poor picture! this is actually river rock and concord grape with vanilla trim. it really started out to be something colorful, summery, flowery - and this is what it morphed into. waaay off what i had in mind, but i do kinda like it! the new lace edge punch is gonna get lots of use!

i seem to be putting these in backwards of what i want - in retrospect - guess i could think it out a bit before hand!! hahaha this is a dressing up of the card after this one. no sparkles, but the crocheted flowers and retired corduroy buttons make it nice!

this one is a blend of a couple of cards i saw online - the flowers are watercolored and cut out and popped on dimensionals - for the others i did (for a swap) i just used glue dots - this is just such a nice set! it also has a mum type flower with it....

this one was a lot of fun. my missing mojo is beginning to return - ha - my sponging leaves a bit to be desired, but i have seen so many cute versions of this - beach blankets, beach bags, sand castles - so here is my version - the last little boy in line just seemed so perfect to sit on a blanket - and we all know kids don't get out of the water willingly - only if the proper food is used to entice. his snowcone can't get much bigger!! lol

this particular card idea came from lisa young at add ink and stamp. i used two different sentiments from word play. i couldn't decide which to use and serendipitously, with the mortar board attached, it changed the lower sentiment to be more like an extension of the upper one!. lisa hung her mortar board from a corner, which i really liked better than this, but the sentiment swayed me!

you know, looking at this bow tells me this is a direct case of mary brown (stampercamper) again! i love her stuff!! daffodil delight, poppy parade and baja breeze. and a cute little black glitter brad. does anyone know why colors seem to NEED two names??!!! ok, silly question - i bet the answer just came to me! hahaha

this is such a cool punch! it does three different flower shapes! lends itself to so many different ideas! since i rarely have actual new ideas (!) i limit myself to two cases - i would love to tell you who, but again, it gets away when it sits! it is melon mambo, pacific point, and daffodil yellow. so nice and bright. perfect birthday cards!

this card is another case of the talented stampercamper, mary brown. i just love her stuff! Amazing how the details leave after sitting a few weeks!! retired dsp - kaleidoscope, i believe, so saffron, night of navy card stock and the inks are old olive and peach parfait. no sentiment till i need it!

my friend Jo's birthday is so close to Easter this year so i couldn't resist this card. a cute little punched bunny - made of various oval and circle punches and the owl punch and the Easter eggs from the Easter Blossoms set. Might have needed a sun to balance the clouds...

pretty plain and simple, but effective! cherry cobbler on top of a remnant of black and vanilla dsp. the vanilla layer on top was run thru the square lattice folder. the engraved birthday was embossed in black and tipped in black. the black and vanilla ribbon was gathered in a brad.

I haven't posted in quite awhile - such a busy winter! This is my phone with my new screensaver that I created all by myself!! It took a few tries to get it to fit the phone, but after that - easy peasy!
this will go on hubby's phone for valentines day! I haven't yet done his "special" card....
