I made this card to send out to a couple of my girls that have been missing a few card classes lately. I just wanted to say hello and let them know that we miss them at class and hope to see them soon.
I used Marina Mist ink and Watercolor Wash for the background.
The flowers are stamped in Real Red ink using the Flower Shop stamp set and then punched out using the Pansy Punch.
The greeting was stamped in Archival Black ink using the Tin of Cards stamp set.

I wanted to take a minute to share with you an AWESOME product I discovered that is absolutely perfect for my craft desk. It holds all my frequently used items that I use when I am designing my cards.
It is called a "Tool Turnabout" and is made by Papered Chef....designed to hold kitchen tools....but boy oh boy this is an amazing crafter's tool!
It has tons of storage and is made of sturdy hard plastic and has a rotating base!!! Score!!
I found a wonderful Pampered Chef representative local here in Winnipeg.
She also has a website where you can order one for yourself from anywhere in Canada.
I ordered mine directly from her and picked it up.
It was just a few days between the time I ordered and received my Tool Turnabout.
Here are her details:

Here is her website you can order online and ship anywhere in Canada:

This was another easy but fun card to make.
The background is embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF.
The tree image was stamped in Night of Navy ink using the Shetering Tree stamp set. Then the snowflakes were randomly stamped using Soft Sky ink and Smoky Slate ink but I stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on the art piece.
The greeting is from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.

Here is a card that is oh so easy to make.....and helped me get rid of some scraps as well. You could make this card in a variety of colors.
I used So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie.
The stamps are One Big Meaning and Timeless Textures.
The butterflies are cut from the Bold Butterfly Thinlets.
I think this would be gorgeous in Cucumber and Watermelon or Bermuda Bay and Soft Sky.....I might have to give that a try....

This is a super fun birthday card I made for a bunch of us (at the campground) to give to Peter Douglas ( a friend we met at Oasis Beach campground) for his birthday last week
I think it is so fun with all the different animals....I am sure he has picked out the characters in the card and compared it to the signatures on the inside......and I am sure he thinks I am the crazy bird with the wild hair!!
We had a big get together and potluck supper and boy was he surprised by his birthday cake and card....it was great!
Good times ....good friends....LOVE IT!
