For Janet

Here is another card using some of the new to me pre folded 5.5 x 8.5 card bases.  The pre-coloredimage is from my files - originally from a site called Antique Images.  The two panels are textured ribbon, and the dies are Spellbinders.

Welcome to our church

I am hoping to be more involved in a card ministry at our church.  This will be a card to welcome new members.  The Scripture is from Word Art, and the sentiment is computer generated.  I added a dragonfly charm - just because I have  a whole packet of them I have not yet used!!!

HB, Leah

Our 20 something granddaughter was in Peru a few weeks ago, and fell in love with llamas.  I found this cute image on line - perfect with the pink/purple coloring.  The purple polka dotted cs is white on the reverse side - perfect for printing the verse on the inside.  I added some sequins and glitter for a bit of sparkle.  The die cuts are from Spellbinders.

Crafter's Cafe Jan. 15 challenge

For the new year, the Crafter's Cafe is beginning a series of dual themes - choose whichever you prefer!  The mid month challenge offers the option of "layer it up" or CAS, using yellow.  I chose to do layers - I counted eight.  The image is Heart Bouquet by Creative Bug.
I used watercolor pencils to color the hearts.  The papers are from a pad of Valentine DP by Martha Steward - one I have had for several years.  The dotted strips are Washi tape.

Humor for Anne

This is for the Tuesday Tea Pot party at SplitCoastStampers.  We are sending cheer to Anne this week.  If you would like to join us, look here for details.  The added challenge is to do a humorous card, with a touch of red if possible.
Pre colored digi by Dearie dolls; computer sentiment; DP by AMuse; stitched ribbon; Darice embossing folder.  I have had the image in my files for a while but this is the first time I printed it, so it is new to me.

Thanks to Evelyn


This is similar to yesterday's card  the sketch and bg are different.
Image - TLC pre colored freebie;  papers - Lily of the Valley; Recolllections watercolor; die cut by Cheery Lynn.
New - scored card base (a friend got a new box full at a yard sale and gave it to me).  I seldom make 8.5 x 5.5 cards, but this included 100 envelopes so I may as well use them!  I will give this card - and more - to her as a thank you.
New:  the TLC image has been in my file but this is my first time to use it.

For Art and Mary

This is for friends who are experiencing health issuesl
Image - TLC pre colored freebie;  papers - Lily of the Valley; Recolllections watercolor; die cut by Cheery Lynn.
New - scored card base (a friend got a new box full at a yard sale and gave it to me).  I seldom make 8.5 x 5.5 cards, but this included 100 envelopes so I may as well use them!
New:  the TLC image has been in my file but this is my first time to use it.
Resolutions: 1) - to do a better job of remembering friends and church members in need of a lift;     2) -to stop hoarding my supplies (e.g. - the papers here) - with my advancing macular degeneration I may as well use them as I probably do  not have years and years of card making left.    3)  get back to regular card making.

Crafter's Cafe challenge #210 - Glitter and/or Christmas

We hope you will join us for the current challenge at the Crafter's Cafe - Christmas, and/or glitter - choose one or use both!  The challenge runs until the end of December.  NOTE:  we will take a little break and resume on January 15.   I have chosen to feature this cute snowman set from MMedelIllustrations.
I colored these cuties with watercolors.  I added glitter to tri the hats and enhance the background snowflakes.  Punched snowflakes and silver ribbon complete the look.
