The butterfly and main image are from the Our Daily Bread Happy Birthday set. The sentiment was given to me. I colored with shimmery Brilliance and Twinkling H20's. The rain drops were also a gift. The ribbon and lace have been in my stash a long time, and everything else has been around for at least several months.
Anything goes, with 2 ribbons: http://clearitoutchallenge.blogspot.com/

More friends will have an anniversary this week. This image is perfect for our age group LOL!!!
The dp is from a large pack of Costco double sided cs. The image from Mo's Digital Pencil is colored with Prismas, and the sentiment is Kolette Hall ($1 stamp). The swirls are part of a die cut. Velvety blue ribbon is by Bobbin. I added some sparkle to the butterfly, the swirls and the sentiment.
I used the layout, including the butterfly and the swirls, as well as the look of the papers, as a case: http://www.cinspirations.blogspot.com/

This image is from the Thoughts and Prayers set by SU. I will add a sentiment later. The dp and grey are RAK gifts from an SCS friend. I used the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder, and a Petaloo flower.

I try to keep sympathy cards subtle and simple - I hope this is simple enough. The image is Endless Creations, and I believe the sentiment is from a Verve set (it has become separated!).
DP- Recollections; crystals, lace (garage sale find), Shapeabilities butterfly, Nesties ovals.
Use a sentiment (Dandelion Designs): http://cardcrafterscircle.blogspot.com/

This image is perfect for an anniversary card for several people I know! The image is a digital from Mo's Digital Pencil. I colored with Prismas, added Petaloo flowers, a charm, and some crystals. I had hoped to enter several challenges, but my internet connection has been terrible, and I could not get this uploaded yesterday, so I missed deadlines LOL!

I added the bee for the second image - kind of hidden behind the main Fluffles (Stampendous) image. The DP is some DCWV I have had for a long time. I have a strip of brown ribbon, and the bow of cream colored ribbon. The sentiment is from the 7Gypsies Library stamp.
Use 2 ribbons (I have had the brown for several years; the cream is only a year or so old: http://shoppingourstash.blogspot.com/

Father's Day: http://www.craftysentiments.blogspot.com/
Everything is at least 6 months old, and I have had the ribbon, Nesties oval dies, and the gifted image for much longer than that. The sentiment is JustRite, also at least 6 months old.

All from my stash - the sentiment and DP are at least 6 months old, the rest I have had a long time: http://useittuesday.blogspot.com/
It is always a good idea to have some sympathy cards on hand. The image and sentiment are SU Thoughts and Prayers. I used CB Swiss Dots and Victoria folders, a Nestie die, and tiny butterfly punch.

The image is a digi from the Sketching Stamper and the sentiment from a Recollection collection. I cut matching openings in the embossed layer and the Creative Memories DP layer. I added a gold sticker strip and leaf die cuts from Shapeabilities Orchard Harvest. The flowers are Petaloo.

I have lots of fishing and golfing images, but it is time to do something different! Again, this is from my stash of images (mostly from Wish RAK on SCS). It might be Noble Deer by SU. The sentiment is JustRite. I embossed the Kraft cs with Distressed Stripes. The DP at the top is DCWV. The card is completed with brown and white striped Baker's Twine and brads. This is #12 of my 100 cards in 100 days - without purchasing new supplies.

This is a remake of a graduation card I made a few weeks ago. The invitation colors were the same - blue, silver and white. I cut out the logo from the invitation, and made a diploma with his name. Pretty simple - but it is probably the check that is most important.
Just another version.

This is for a friend who will celebrate his birthday on Sunday. DH and two friends all have birthdays the same day, and all three are avid fishermen - makes the theme pretty easy - except I need to have a variety of cards on hand! The image is Art Impressions, and the seal is All Night Media - both rather old stamps. I used the bubble EF, some twine, and a scrap of DP. I wanted to get the lures to show, so trimmed a corner of that layer to make it fit. The sentiment is computer generated.

- I have completed another of my masculine cards, as well as another 100 cards in 100 days - using items on hand - no new purchases! The stamp is by Embossing Arts Co., colored with Prismas. I used two CB folders - Happy Birthday, and Bubbles. The DP has been in my stash a LONG time! (I cannot figure out what I did to change my format LOL!)

My apologies if I am in error for any ot these - my internet is super slow and often loads only part of a page, so it is hard to stay with it and find all the details.
I am also making a number of cards to sell at a craft sale in our RV park - DH and two friends have birthdays on June 10 - DH will be 80. I think there will be requests for cards. I need to get busy.
This uses an Art Impressions image, Recollection DP and Prismas.

I need to have some masculine/"golden oldies" cards available - DH, his twin brother, and a friend celebrate birthdays later this week. DH and his twin will be 80 and the friend is not far behind.
I am also beginning another challenge - create 100 cards in 100 days without adding to our supply stash. I know I could probably do 1000 with what I have, except for card bases and maybe some colored cs for mats. Here is the link for the 100 in 100 challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/blogging-groups-f290/100-cards-projects-100-days-t554358-3.html
I used a GinaK image, watercolored, with some stripes for accents. The corners are from a CB paisley die, and the bg is the CB Script.
