Just a simple card for a "just because" occasion. We have a "Care card Ministry" in our church so this is one that will probably be used just for that.
Enjoy your DAY!! It is rainy here today so I get to play indoors. Smile. I should be out buying some of my bedding plants etc. but it is just too wet. Maybe later.

Just Because card

Ahhhhh Smile:) spring is finally springing!! It looks like it is going to be a nice day and the forecast is also looking good. Time to carry on gardening.
This card turned out nice after a whole lot of fiddling. I used some paper from an old collection of SU. I antiqued it up, roughed it up, sewed it up a bit and made a scrunched paper flower. The rest is pretty straight forward. This was inspired from a challenge somewhere but I forgot where that was. The only stamps I used is the little sentiment and the old looking damask corner. A nesties label was used to cut out the label. SU punch to make the flower.

Just another little card I made with some wonderful felt that I just got. It was so nice to be able to get it from a place in BC Canada. Real wool. I used the nesties to cut out the flower and the little bird is made with a button. Enjoy!

Shawn's birthday card

Happy May 7th, finally our weather is maybe (fingers crossed)changing into spring??!! The sun is shining half time. Still coooool. The perennials are coming out although I'm not sure why. The wind is not blowing today and that always makes me happy happy. :)
I made this card for Shawn. He asked where I got the little brass frame?? He said "I'm right into this making cards thing". Go figure.
The card is made with a retired paper from SU. with SU hardware. Leaves and tree stamped with versamark and then dusted with SU pastel. Bottom is the diamond background SU. Twine SU.

Repurposed Vellum

It's been a very rainy few days. The rain has been dripping through the roof since our shingles were very badly damaged in a recent windstorm.
I am getting cabin fever. Needing to get out into the sunshine, mow some grass and just check to see the progress on my perennials. Everything should be nicely greened up by the time I can work out there again.
This card that I am posting was done reusing some vellum from a program from a church fundraiser supper. The hymn Amazing Grace was printed on the vellum. I cut out one verse and attached that with brads. I punched out some of the vellum to make the flower by stacking 3 differnet shapes and creasing them with my fingernail, then glueing them together. A pink rhinestone was used in the middle.
Stamps: Bird on a Branch SU "Blessings" from another coll.
Inks: SU- Choc chip, celery green
Paper: SU- Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Cuttlebug embossing strip
SU taffeta choc chip ribbon
