With Deepest Sympathy

The inspiration for this card came from a swap I got from Jennifer Maguire at an SU! Regional several years ago and I think it is stunning! I especially love the glitter!! I traced the letters and flowers with my two-way glue pen and then sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Super simple and absolutely gorgeous! This is a sympathy card for a dear friend of mine and her husband. My friend's father passed away on Sunday morning and on Sunday evening, her mother-in-law passed away. I hope my card bring them comfort during this difficult time. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you're enjoying the beautiful sunshine where you are!!

So Lucky!!

Well, I'm a little late posting my one and only St. Patrick's Day card, but here it is! I found the inspiration for this card on Jeni Allen's blog and loved it so much! My ribbon is a little crazy-crooked, but I love the way the pleated paper and crinkly flower turned out. I picked up a give-away book at our local used bookstore for punching out flower pieces. I'm not usually one to deface books, but I love pulling those pages out and turning them into something different!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!! Hope it's going to be warm where you are!!

In Memory of Sydney

There's a little girl in third grade with my daughter who recently lost her 5-year battle with neuroblastoma. The family is completely devastated and I wanted to send them a card to let them know how much we care. I found this card on SCS and thought it would make a perfect sympathy card for this sweet family. Thanks for stopping by!

Another Beautiful Baby Card

Here's another lovely creation from my friend, Leigh Ann! She used that wonderful Baby Button Bits stamp set that I am anxiously "expecting" (should be here this week!!) I can't wait to get my hands on that set and create some beautiful baby projects!! Thanks for stopping by!

With a Cherry on Top!

Check out this BEE-YOU-TEE-FUL card that my talented friend, Leigh Ann, gave me for my birthday!! She used Papertrey's Baby Button Bits stamp set (which I just ordered for me!!) and I just love her color scheme - turquoise, chocolate brown, and pink! And look at that awesome button that's the cherry on top of the cupcake!! I just want to eat it! Thanks for stopping by and have a glorious weekend (and don't forget to "Spring Forward" tonight - yuck!!).

Happy Mother's Day!

My talented friend, Jane, had this beautiful card for us to make at our most recent Tuesday Night Stamp Group and I LOVE IT!! How awesome is it that SU!'s tag punches, along with the Modern Label Punch, can be used to look like the paper has been wrapped around the card, but it's so much easier!! I can't wait to make more cards like this one. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

For the Love of Butterflies!

Here's another beautiful card I found on a recent blog stalk of Heather Summers' blog. So Springy and happy and cheerful!! And since I've caught a raging case of Spring Fever, I decided to make one of my very own and share it with my Tuesday night stamping group. So go find some butterflies (paper ones, of course!) and start making beautiful Spring cards of your own!!

A Taste of Spring!

There is finally hope that spring will eventually come to TN and I am so thankful!! We've had a couple of days of 60 degree temps and it has been glorious, so I broke out some pastel CS and inks and have been busy creating. I found a link to this beautiful card on the Poppy Paperie blog and I fell in love!! I didn't have any of the PTI colors used to make the card, but my friend, Leigh Ann, told me what SU! colors match the PTI colors. I used Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, and Bashful Blue. And look at all those scallops!! I LOVE Papertrey's "Life" set and I can't wait to make more cards like this one in different colors. Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!!

Inspired by Jen Tapler

I am so completely in love with this card by Jen Tapler that I saw on Splitcoaststampers!! I copied it completely and was thrilled that I had buttons to match the colors I used. I pulled out SU!'s retired color, Wild Wasabi (still a fave!), and paired it with Papertrey Ink's Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise designer paper. It's such a simple design, but one that could easily be used on cards for any occasion. Thanks for the inspiration, Jen!!
