Thank You

I needed a Thank You card, and since I don't mass produce cards like I should I came up with this one.

I absolutely had to have this set when it became available! There is something so very retro, and classy about it and I am loving this color combo!!!!! I definately think I'll be making more of these.

Oh, and since I didnt take a side shot, the bird and the branch are popped up on dimensionals.

The Deets:
Paper: Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Night of Navy

The last one! I procrastinated on getting the gift for this shower because well, this particular girlfriend already has 1 kiddo and it's not a real shower but more of a get together of some girlfriends. I figured I'd stop on my way to the shower and pick up a gift card to Target. Isn't the packaging so beautiful? I definately stood out amongst the rest.

Oh, and can you believe...NO STAMPING?! It really was a jiffy to put together. It's a shame I struggled with the card.

The Deets:
Special Delivery Boy Simply Scrappin Kit
Coffee Bag
Congratulations Rub-On frm Basic Grey

Baby Shower

Is it me or is everyone having babies?! This is the 2nd shower this month and I have one more to go to next week...

I really took my time on this card because my friend is an avid scrapbooker and I figured she would really appreciate a well thought out card that she could later put in her Caleb's scrapbook

For this I used the Simply Scrappin Kit, Special Delivery Boy. The more I use these kits, the more I love them!!!

I love the fact that it not only has textured cardstock but also DSP. Then add the die cut stickers and you have plenty for a wide assortment of cards.

You probably cant tell in this picture, or any of the others that I took for that matter, that the sentiment "Congrats on your swell news" is embossed. I used my watercolor pencils for the picture.

The deets:
Paper: Bashful Blue, DSP from Special Delivery Boy, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, VersaMark
Stamp: Swell News (retired)
Ribbon: Certainly Celery 5/8"

The deets:

Belated Everything

I think this may be my first non-related SU! post ever.

Anyways, I needed a card for a friend who has send me considerably more cards then I ever her. On top of that, she had just celebrated her 2 year blogoversary, birthday and a new job. So this is what I came up with...

I just loved the paper and didnt want to distract from that, so I added some ribbon and a rub-on from SU! imagine...I'm finally sending a card!!!! I hate to admit I didnt send out any Christmas cards this year because I couldn't decide on a design that I loved!

Since it is a dark cardstock base, I added a liner with more rub-ons.

Chocolate Chip, Whisper White cardstock
Misc. paper
Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons
Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon

Gift Envelope for MIL

My M-I-L has this collection of dog salt and pepper shakers, well this one particular set also has a cookie jar and as long as I've known her, about 5 years, she has been on the search for it.

I kid you not when I say she has visited almost every antique store in Mi. Anyways, she finally found, and after paying a small fortune for it, it sits proudly amongst the rest of the dogs.

Since she is the most difficult person to shop for, and since all she talked about was how expensive the jar was, she received cold hard cash for her birthday in this cute envelope which also served as a card.

I kid you not, with the help of this template, it took me 15 minutes to make. Template can be found here.
