2 FALL cards. For the top one
I used a cuttlebug cut/emboss leaf.
Cut thru front of card.  Colored cut out leaf
with ink and sponge and attached to inside
thru leaf opening. 
The bottom card uses Flower Soft on the tree.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Hope you have a wonderful holiday with your families and friends.
Thanking God for all your blessings.

A more masculine card.


Here is a card using a stamp from Micheal Strong.  I made the reeds by using my paper cutter to cut thin strips.
We are having a beautiful day here in SAN DIEGO.  Warm and sunny with cool nights.  Hope you are all having a great day.


Here is a wedding card that I just offered in a class at our church
The circle is a coaster from a hotel room.
I hand cut the heart shapes and embossed the wedding dress in a cuttlebug
folder.   Used spellbinders fancy label for saying. 


Papertrey Ink background paper and stamps.


Here is a fallish thank you card.  I love the color combo of blue and browns.  I used cuttlebug folder for background, and ran inked sponge over it.  Used brown and turquoise.  Martha Stewart punch for branches along with dew drops.  Cut rectangle and hand drew lines for woodgrain.  Shaded with sponge.  Thans is from a cuttlebug also.

This one I embossed with cuttlebug, then ran black ink over it.  Embossed black circle with Swiss dots.  Used fancy tags for sentiment.

These are three cards I created with some old Jolee stickers.  Circle spellbinders and fancy tags.  Also one of  the new cuttlebug cut and emboss folders.

Summertime Cards

My first post!

I would like to post some of my favorite card-creations as I make them. 
These cards are perfect for summertime!
We have had a wonderful summer here in Southern California so far.  Highs only in the 80's and plenty of time to lounge outside by the pool or take vacations to see family.
I've been doing a lot of card making as well and my daughter finally convinced me to start a blog.
SO, here I am.

I hope you enjoy.
