Teacher's Gift Set
This is the front and the inside of the Note card folder and Note cards with envelopes That I made for Abby's teacher for the end of the school year. I enjoyed making this so much that I made two more. All the same design just a little differnt paper and ribbon. I just the Tart and tangy stampin up stamp set. The paper is from one of my favorite lines by October Afternoon. I turned one of them in for a design call team at Simply Scrapbooks that I am hoping to get on. I am excited that I even turned in anyting for a design team call. Even if I don't get it I am just proud of myself for even getting the nerve up for trying out for it. I am ready to get my feet wet and test some new waters. I guess I have a lot of work cut out ahead of me so i am jumping in with two feet. No guts no glory!

Thank you Nickie

Thank you cards seem to be a lost art. SO I felt that since my Good Friend Nickie was so nice for what she did for me that it was time I made a thank you card. Of Course she a a great artist herself so I wasn't sure how much she would even like it, but she was so please and surprised by it that it made my heart sing. LOL It made my day that she really liked it. Now don't get me work my Mom Loves my cards as well and that always tickles me pink. But of course I always get ticked when my Mom thinks of me and makes me a card and when she makes Abby a card just for the sake of making a card.
Now about my Thank You card. I used hero arts stamps as well as my Wonderful Slice machine to cut the bird and the branch. The paper I used was K&Co. Amy Bulter I love her paper as well as fabric.

Recessed Window

My Recessed window card. These are so much fun to make. I used Stamping Bella stamps and October afternoon paper. I pop dotted the flower in the vases so they stand out from the hanging baskets. I used flower soft for a little textured demention.

Happy Mothers Day Card

OK OK OK I know I have not keep up with my blogging. So here goes I guess, a little late than never. I love the look of vintage clothing and these women where great. I cut the women out and re sized them first. I cut the side of the card using a Tim Holtz sizzix die cut. I added a vintage belt buckle and some lace. The red doilie piece is from October Afternoon paper I cut out also. Oh and a shout out goes to Nickie thanks for the idea.
