Happy Birthday to Me!

Well my birthday was the 17th of this month but I am just finishing up and sending out the last of my thank you notes. This card is going to my friend Susan who had a crop on my birthday there were 6 of us and she was a perfect hostess . She provided breakfast,lunch,dinner,goody bags and prizes we had a great time and she even baked me a cake to take home. I ended my birthday at my moms with friends and family it was a really good Birthday. Well back to the card it was easy to make with my silhouette. I used a silhouette card die cut and label die(soorry forgot to write down the anames of die cuts) I love the intricate cut out of the card it makes a simple card look so elegant.Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Nice People

Wow it is so good to know their are still nice people in the world. I know this because I received a beautiful card from someone I don't know and who does not know me (IRL). We have not even communicated through email we just belong to the same online group Magnolia yahoo group. Within this group are a select number of ladies make birthday cards for everyone in the group (which is a lot). Well I received mine from Christina. Let me tell you it was one of the most beautiful cards I have ever received. I in return sent here a thank you card which I made with my silhouette and added a magnolia stamp it pales in comparison to her card. Here is her card below.,if you would like to see more of her beautiful work you can find it on her blog http://christinascardconnection.blogspot.com/

Stationary Set

This is one of my favorite gifts to make they are quick and easy and use very little paper to make. I first saw this idea on Nicole Heady's blog and said hmmm I think I can make that. I was lucky to find a design similar to the cover on Splitcoast stampers . I used my crafters companion envelopemaker to make the envelope boxes that hold the stationary. Just rite stamps were used for the monograms and embossed to give a more professional look. I also used my cuttlebug strip folders to add texture to the bottom of the note card. The matching Tilda card was made using my silhouette to make the doily background. I added a few more sets that I have made to show you all the possibilities. tfl.

Happy 4th 2010

Happy 4th of July everyone this week I am participating in the Magnolia birthday bash blog sketch challenge. the theme had to be red white and blue and they provided a sketch . I must say I took some liberties with the sketch (no pun intended LOL!). I used a side step card I figured the side panel would be the large panel in the sketch and the scored first step would be the smaller horizontal panel.
I dressed my tilda in red and blue using copics the statue of liberty cut out was done with my silhouette with a mamaslegacy GSD. Unfortunately mamaslegacy has closed her online shop she had wonderful designs for cut files. I used thickers for the back panel I love the glitter thickers. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit the Magnolia birthday blog bash for more great projects.
