OK- last one for today...I think.

So- I stamped, and colored, and cut, and cut, and cut and made 100 of these for a swap...and now that everyone has received them I can finally post the pic  : )

It was a LOT of work, fortunately my sweet husband flew home the night before I had to mail them and guess who got to help me finish???
I was so happy to get these done. And surprisingly, I still like the card! In the end only 85 participated in the swap, so I have a few left to mail and to share with friends..only very special friends!  lol  Enjoy!

yep- theres more!

I made this for a swap I was in with the Tickled Ink group. I just love the garden gala DSP and had to find a way to showcase it. I hate covering up beautiful paper. It just makes me sad.  lol   So- very simple, very easy, and in my humble opinion, very cute! The finished product actually had a yellow frame around the happy birthday sentiment...hmmm..  maybe I'll replace this pic later and show you the real deal. It adds a bit of pizazz....Lattice EF was used againa nd that cute skinny daffodil delight ribbon. Love it!

More to share...

This is the birthday card I made for my Ashley- she turned 20 in July! How did that happen???? Anyway- she likes blue and brown together so i tried to incorporate her colors. I also used the new Stampin Up builder wheels on this one. Loving those! Some DSp, some embossed blue paper with the new lattice EF, and some cute new skinny ribbon and ...lots of coloring. I am usually not into a  lot of coloring, but I think this came out cute.  : )  The edge punch is from Martha. Had to have it. Enjoy!

Catching up...

OK- so its just embarassing how long its been since I've posted. Does it help to know I've been busy finishing up my master's and doing an internship??? At all?  Oh well, I will attempt to make it up to you with some awesome cards....I made these two for the 4th of July- just wanted to play with some red , white and blue and use the embossing folder on some metal sheets I had waiting to be used.  I used the new builder wheels on the Left card, and a SU jumbo wheel on the Right card. Enjoy!
