Miss you...

I hate throwing anything away and anytime I can use up any little bit of scraps I jump at the opportunity. This card is a prime example! Saw a similar card and loved the idea of using up some of those "little" scraps of paper that are too small really for anything, but ugh, I just can't throw them away because...I eventually come across something like this! These were scraps that were laying in the "should be trash pile, but..." Good thing I hung onto them... Great thing about this kind of card is that you could cut out any kind of shape or even use punches to get the same effect. I free handed the heart in this card, but like I just mentioned you could do a variety of things to get this effect. So what will you come up with? You know you have some scrap paper laying around. Get them out and let your imagination run away with you....

Saying goodbye...

There's something to be said of the end of one SU year and the beginning of another. This year is no different. Lots of big changes are taking place and new colors are the biggest! So for our last card nite of the 2009-2010 year I pulled out a few favorite stamps & colors that are leaving. I am sad to see so many colors go, but I am equally excited about all the new colors that are coming into SU's family. Some are In Colors of years past coming to be a permant color and some are just brand new. Well enjoy getting to see some of the ending colors...

American Flag...

Here is the American Flag card that we made during last months card nite. I cased this idea, but don't remember from who (so thank you to whoever came up with this idea). I changed up the "stars" by using glitter instead of stamping white stars and "zig zagging" the stripes. This was a pretty easy card and I really enjoyed making it! What better way to show your patiotism!!!

PAPERS: Crumb Cake (kraft), Real Red, Brilliant Blue, White

Wonderful Friend

I love this hostess set that I got free with my order! I used my watercolor crayons on this. This stamp works great with them!!! And with the new colors that has come out the color combos are endless with this. I saw this "corner" look on someone else's card and decided to use it here. I think it added just the right "wow" to this card. Hope you enjoy this summery card!!! Especially the one who recieves this card!!!

I love to look through magizines for ideas and this card is no exception. I loved the fold of this card so I tried it out for myself. Although I did measure one part wrong it still worked out ok!!! Yeah for me, cause I really didn't want to recut another card. I knew right away what paper I wanted to use along with the butterfly punch. So to make a long story short, it took me 3 days to finish this card. I just had to keep stepping away from it to know exactly what I wanted and what else to use. I am pleased with how it has come out. Hope you enjoy it too!!!

Happy 4th!!!

Just want to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July! So what is one of your traditions that you do each 4th of July? I make a "Flag Cake". I've been making them for almost 15 years now and it's hard to believe how popular they've become. It's still one of my favorite desserts. Mainly because it has 2 of my favorite fruits in it, blueberries and strawberries!!!

Well, here is an "altered" 4th of July card that we made for Therapy Card Nite this month. I made this one winking!!!
