More Thinking of you

This is one of the great vintage images offered at TLC - pre colored which is so helpful for my bad eyes!  I used DP from my stash, and added a metal clip with a rhinestone framed with metal.  I even found ribbon with the same fall colors. I used Spellbinder dies for the ovals and the DP layer.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Just for you

Another card to add to my stash.  I used Washi tape, patterned paper, and Prima flowers from my collection.  I seldom stamp directly on the background paper - I need to remember I can do that!

Thinking of you

I need to replenish my supply of generic thinking of you cards.  I really like this sketch to display verses.  Word Art has such a lovely selection  This has been in my file since late 2014  The sentiment is from my computer. I used the heat gun to frizzle the ribbon ends, and used Labels dies for the "tag".

Happy Birthday, Samantha

This image came from my collection of images - I usually print several at a time.  I still have not learned to label them  and as usual, I do not recall the source.  If you recognize this cute cupcake please let me know so I can give the proper credit. It is pre colored.  The side panel uses 2 patterned papers, and I used gold stickers to create the border.

This is for challenge #229 at the Crafter's Cafe.  You have two weeks to complete your entry, and there are several options:  use a stencil, or Halloween and/or the colors purple, orange and black. As you can see, i used the colors for the Halloween theme.  The sponsor is DeCosse's Dynamite Doodles, and I selected the following to complete my card:  
Trick or treat bundle - textured papers - light purple grunge; dark purple grunge;
Trick or treat bundle -  General elements  -  two pumpkins (upper left); green moon face and witch hat;  happy Halloween sentiment
I used Spellbinder dies for the circles, and some ribbon from my endless stash.
I fussy cut the small images - good thing I mounted on white cs, as my macular degeneration is kind of acting up today and I struggled with cutting. I have learned that  mounting on white hides uneven cut edges!  The images are all pre-colored.  I added some Stickles to the sentiment for the shine.

Tool bench for a guy

This is the same image I just used on another card - same image but different etting.  I often print 2 or 3 digis at a time - then promptly add the extras to my stash.  I am going to try to change that  and actually make more than one card at a time!  The image is from Sparkle n Sprinkle, and the rest is made up of items from my stash.  The edges are torn and sponged with chalk.

Happy birthday to our son

Paul, are you really going to be 60? where have the years gone? 
He just finished a major remodeling job -the final project of many in their home.  He had to do this evenings and week ends.  I thought about putting a big red X over the tool cart!  (I have used so many hunting and fishing images - time for a change LOL!!!)
The image was a prize from Sparkle n Sprinkle - I think they are now out of business. The letters are from a Cuttebug alphabet die set - probably the first die set I purchased.  The DP pieces are from my endless stash.  The base features a number of stripes to fulfill the sketch.  I sponged the town edges of the image with chalk.
