Good Morning!

One of my co-workers asked me to make a special Anniversary card for her daughter and husband.  She didn’t tell me anything specific she wanted, only what their names were. The only thing she asked is that it be a ‘big’ card….

Anniversary 001

I always worried about making the larger cards because the envelopes were so hard to come by but now that I have the new We R Memory Keepers Envelop Punch Board it is so simple to make any size envelope!  This card is 6″ x 6″ and I used the left over design paper to make the matching envelope.

Here’s a peek at the inside…

Anniversary 002For the inside I used the Martha Stewart Antique Heart deep edge border punch to make the fancy design at the top.

Anniversary 003The stamp I used on the front of the card is by Hampton Art and it is called Love Defined, it is heat embossed using Pearl Luster Sapphire.

Would you believe it took me 2.5 hours to make this card?  These days it’s like pulling teeth! LOL!!

I am off to work!  I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!



Hero Arts Sizzix

Good Morning!  I have another quick card to share with you before I head off to get ready for work.  This time I am using the Hero Arts Sizzix Stamp & Die-cut set I picked up a while back from The Cutting Garden…

Post10I like the bold colors on this card.  Cutting the panel in three equal pieces gives the card extra interest.  I am also pleased that this card is low profile and mail friendly.  I have a very busy week ahead of me, starting Wednesday at noon I am in all day meetings that will take me into quite late in the evenings so I am not sure if I will be posting every morning but I will try 🙂  Today the temperature is supposed to be lovely and warm, yesterday the sun was glorious and it is making me look forward to doing some work in my garden.  This year I plan to plant Sunflowers and I am really hoping that I will be successful with them.  I planted them the first year we owned our house and they were spectacular!

Okay, so I am off to start my day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!


We’ve made it to Thursday!

Good Morning Crafty Friends,  I am posting a bit late this morning.  I have an appointment at the hospital so I had a few extra minutes to pull myself together before I head out.  I made this card/tag for a friend at work who had a birthday yesterday….

Birthday1This one has all my favorite things.  My Mind’s Eye paper, butterflies and hand made flowers.  I also really like to do a bit of sewing on my cards, it’s the little things that make the card I think 🙂  I used my little rolled flower dies and scalloped circle punches to make the flowers.  Here’s a peek at the inside….

Birthday2So Pretty!  I really like how this one turned out and Joy loved it so that’s what is important 🙂

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
