Birthday Wishes

I made this card a couple of weeks ago for a co-worker. I just remembered that I hadn't posted it yet. I hope you like it.

If Friends Were Flowers . . .

This is my take on the flower pot card. When I first saw the flower pot cards on splitcoaststampers, I knew I'd make one for my neighbor's birthday, which was yesterday. I cut the pot from Walk in my Garden (Cricut cartridge ) twice (I used the flip feature on the second one). I put the two pots together with fairly thin small pop-up dots. Then I cut a piece of black cardstock and used a border punch on the bottom of it to make the rim of the pot. The flowers are two different sizes of the sunflower cut with the blackout feature on to make the flowers. I punched the small flower in the middle and put the little glitter dots on them. The leaves are from Home Accents (Cricut cartridge). The sentiment is computer generated and then punched with punches. The inside sentiment of course says, "I'd pick you. Happy Birthday Friend." The inside slips down between the two sides of the flower pot. The little butterflies are a punch.

Wedding Cake Card

A card for my husband's niece and her new husband -- her wedding colors were green and purple, so I tried to match those colors.

The Best Way Out . . .

I made this card for my sweet Aunt who is beginning radiation and chemotherapy treatments next week for stage 3 throat cancer. She is scared, of course, and I found this quote by Robert Frost that I thought might help her get through this. My prayer is that it will go by like the blink of an eye and be done! She has a wonderful attitude and lots of faith. That is a big plus for her! TFL.

Merry Memories

I did this layout over a week ago, but I'm just getting around to taking pictures of it. I'm really running out of ideas for Christmas. This layout seems too simple, but after staring at it for what seemed like an hour, I couldn't think of anything I wanted to add ot it!

So Glad You're Okay!

My new son-in-law's Mom had an episode last week with her heart and spent two nights in the hospital. Thank goodness it was nothing serious, and she will be okay. I made this card to send to her. I used the Nestabilities Label 4 dies -- I love them! And, I used a Spellbinders butterfly die too.

Happy Birthday to my Sister!

My sister celebrated her birthday earlier this week. I at first wanted to put a picture on the front of two little girls with their backs to the camera (I was going to search the internet for such a picture). Then I remembered that I have a few pictures of the two of us as little girls on my computer that I used for our parents' 50th anniversary. So, I printed one of those on cardstock and put it on the front of the card. She already received this and told me she loved it and was going to put it in a shadow box. That made me happy!

You're Like a Mother

My sister told me a few weeks ago that sometimes she feels more like a mother to me than a sister. She says that because she loves me so much. She listens to me, she cries with me, and she laughs with me. I decided to make a Mother's Day card for her. I hope she likes it!

Mom's Card

Here is the card I came up with for my Mom. I sure love my Nestabilities! It seems that I pull them out for every creation!

Mother's Day Card

I made this card for my mother-in-law. I found the tutorial for the paper flower here. I hope you like it! The embossed flower is a Cuttlebug folder. Of course I used a few pearls and a punched butterfly as well. Both the butterfly and the border punch are from Martha Stewart.
