Thank You Notes

I needed a couple thank you cards and used the extra card candy I had made previously for a swap on PTI. The peach color is Melon Berry from PTI. They went together quickly.

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to everyone. It is the time to remember our military and all our loved ones. I have taken a small break from card making and have been spending time at my sewing machine. I decided to use some scraps and make a quilt to keep on my dining room table. Well then I decided to make a table runner to match. This is a picture of my helper and I will post again after the quilt is completed.

May 2011 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I created this birthday card for my niece for the Papertrey Ink May challenge. The challenge was to see what your favorite take on flowers was.

Since one of my passions is sewing I decided to make this fabric flower which consisted of 5 two inch squares. I then used the Flower Fusion #1 die cut with red felt as my center.

The leaf was from The Masculine Motifs stamp set along with the dragonfly that I stamped on the inside of the card. It was fun to cut the card at the top at a diagonal to add a little flair to the card.

For Your Inspiration: FYI Challenge #6

Over at "For Your Inspiration" they have a challenge to make a card using this photo as your inspiration. Below are the cards that I made. I used the Hot Air Balloon set from PTI to make this set. I used my copics to color them in and the large scallop die from PTI for the border. I always try to make a couple cards until I get it exactly how I want. Please go to "For Your Inspiration" and see the other entries.

Card Candy Swap

This was the second thing I made for a SCS swap. You were to make card candy. Some thing you would dress up a card with. I love this Melon Berry paper from PTI and they even sell the felt (flower) and ribbon to match. Love these colors. I see now why I chose these colors as my wedding colors 34 years ago.

Fold over envelope card

I was looking for a card to put a little treat in and this is what I came up with. I just folded over about 1 1/2 inches and it makes a great little pocket card.

Nurse Gift Bags

I made 5 of these gift bags for the nurses at work. The saying on the chex mix says "Nurses add a great "MIX" to our department". At the top of the bag you will see that I decorated the lanyards for their name tags. They seem to of went over pretty well at work.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge

Occasionally I like to challenge myself and I came across The Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge. I thought my graduation card for my nephew would be perfect. In the challenge you were to create a card. 3-D, or paper craft project with “SETS” in mind and pair it with a coordinating card to create a complete set.

So I thought I needed to do something with 2011 on it so I tabbed each bill and made it in to a card. Each tab you pull out has money attached to it. It was fun to make and I'm sure he will get a big kick out of it.

Thanks for the challenge.

Quilt Show

I went to a local Machine Quilting Show today and saw some fabulous quilts. These are a few of my favorites.

Check back tomorrow because I will be posting even more.

Happy Birthday Cass!

I think this was my favorite card from stamp camp. Probably because of the colors. I think Pink and green are my favorite combination.

Sun Fun

This card has a lot of neat techniques to it. I like the folded sides and the fun summer stamps. The eyelet just adding something to the boat on the front. I am so ready for summer.

Be sure and notice my new Flower frog that is holding the card. My friend Vannessa gave it to me and I love the oblong size.

Flower Card

I love everything about this card. We cut the leaves a bit to put over the ribbon. The card is cut at a slant and the flower was stamped on the lavender paper and cut out. Love it.

Graduation T-Shirt Quilt

I finally finished the t-shirt quilt that I have been working on. It is for a friend at work and she is going to give it to her son for graduation.

I love the way she provided his scout uniform from when he was little. I used the pocket and all his patches.

Be sure and check back this week because I made some wonderful cards at stamp card this weekend and have lots to show.
