The Right Shoes

I love this saying... "You can do anything with the right shoes!".. and I love the Wedding Cartridge shoe, so here's my card with both.

Hello Card

This card was the SU Melon Mambo cardstock, designer PP, ribbon and ink. I love this color.

Halloween is baaaackkkk

LOL I just love making Halloween cards. I keep telling myself, no more.. and then I sit down and what do I make?!?!?! LOL Made this one with my loot I won from Christina. The cat was a chipboard piece I Xyron'd and glittered, the bat was a K & CO stick-on, the stamp was a dollar wood mounted stamp I picked up at M's, and the paper is from one of the K & CO matstack Christina included in the blog candy.

Thank you Card

I made this thank you card, it's a bit out of the box for me, but I like the way it turned out. Used my new SU In-Color stuff, paper, ink, the patterned paper is Pocket Full of Posies by DCWV and the stamped image is a $1 imaginise stamp I picked up at Meijers, I stickled her top and glittered her skirt. Cuttlebugged the bottom of the card and used the ScorPal to put the lines around it. The tag is SU punch. I thought it was kind of a fun card.

Breast Cancer Card

Made this for a friend who is going through a really bad round of chemo. Inside just says, "You are truly inspirational". I never know what to say in cards like this.

I Like Your Style Award from Brenda

Here's an award I got from Brenda at Brenda's Joy! Thank you so much for thinking of me and asking me to pick this up. I like your style, too! There's no rules on this one, so just post it and pass it out as you like.

I'd like to give it to:

My Sunday Crop

I had a crop at my house today and for once I actually got a few things done. Thought I'd share. I've been working on my son's book in no particular order (as you can see), but he's a Senior this year and I want to have a nice book done for him for his Senior Party.

Be Fruitful

This card was inspired by a card by Snowmanlover with a pear. I made this with a new paper pack I got from K & CO.. it's got such CUTE papers in it. This apple paper I used twice, once to cut the shadow, (I used the flip side of the paper) and another time to cut the image (on the apple side of the paper). I used Home Accents cartridge for the apple, SU top note die, certainly celery card stock and certainly celery decorative paper. Ribbon was from my stash. Stamp by Papertrey Ink, stamped in Certainly Celery and embossed. I traced the topnote notches with Certainly Celery marker.

Card Set 2

The patterned paper in this set is the flip side of the paper in the set down below. It
s by K & Co. Stamps are Papertrey Ink. Ribbon is SU in the first two and the bottom one is just some random ribbon I have in my stash.

Here's another set I did.

Card sets

Like I said above, this patterned paper is the flip side of the paper in Set 2. It's by K & Co. Stamps are by Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink and SU, Ribbon is random ribbon from my stash. Cuttlebug folder used for embossing.

There's sewing in the card above and the two below, but it's not showing very well in the pictures
