Anniversary #7!!!

Wow can't believe I have been married for 7 years!!! Time really does fly when you are having fun. I made this card for my hubby it is always a challenge for me to make a masculine card(no glitter! no bows!no flowers! Oh No!)okay I did sneak a few flowers in on the stamp image. One thing about making masculine cards you kinda have to keep it simple which makes for a faster pulled together card. On this card I used a cuttlbug embossing folder, a $1 stamp,and embosed some straight lines with my score pal.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!!!

Card Club

I recently joined a couple of other ladies in a card club. We meet once a month and share card ideas and techniques,each month there is a theme and this month I got to choose the theme. My theme was to have a hand made flower on your card it was fun to see each persons flower they were all so different. I used a flower technique I had learned on youtube on both of my cards. Both cards used a 5 petal flower to make, I made a stair step card and used a MS punch for the lattice work on one card the other card (peachy color) lattice work is cut from my silhouette. I also have posted the other members cards which are both beautiful! First Denise her cards feature Billie Holiday her hand made flowers were perfect for her image. Next is Kims cards her flower had the clean lines to go along with her uncluttered beautiful teal blue card. Enjoy!

2011 Mothers Day

Just a quick post to wish everyone a happy Mothers day and to share with you a card. I am really into hand made flowers and this hydrangea is one of them . Super simple to make I got the instructions off a you tube video from vandeler. The embelishments on the card base were cut out with the silhouette. The lavender card only has a few blossoms but same technique. I will post two more tomorrow see you then.
