Happy Retirement ....

Recently a neighbor of mine was retiring from her job so I put together this quick card with one of my favorite stamps and made her some candies to match with computer printer labels to match the color.    I used my Stampin Up wheel and while running it across each label  and applied little flowers from a punch I had and put green glitter in the center.
I have small 3 x 3 cello boxes I purchased a long time ago and put a bit of white straw on the bottom and put a small "For You" label on it and took it to her.  Her reaction was delightful!

Happy 1st Anniversary Ryan and Beth...



Today I'm eager to share with you this Anniversary card I made for my Son and sweet Daughter-In-Law.  It's been a year already since their wedding vows took place.  I'm sure they would agree how fast the year has gone since making wedding plans for that special day.


In the mean time I set out to make a 1st year Anniversary card to follow suit with their wedding card that I made for them.  Below is the card I made for them.  I wanted them each to look similar and co-inside with one another.

Here is a verse that I was able to implement and change the verses wording to fit them well.  


I always dislike photographing white cards because the camera does not do the white on white justice.

Happy Birthday Wishes Jill....

I'm sure many of you had made stamping friends through the internet and other blogs.  Well...I've made a great friend Jill from Ribbon Challenged who's birthday was the the 30th and I got out this card to send her so that she knew I was thinking of her on her Birthday.  This stamp is from Penny Black is certainly one of my favorites along with the other black stamp I purchased at a stamp show several years ago and is also a favorite of mine. This particular stamp is from Stampendous and name is Vintage Contract. 


Hope you had a marvelous birthday Jill?

Blue Iris Eyes...


It's birthday time again for my sweet niece Kelli.  So I'm hoping she'll enjoy this when she receives it.  She has the most pretty blue eyes and is a true blond.  So this title fits her quite well.  This is another one of Penny Blacks stamps that I again am very fond of.   I've been on a quest recently to try and make cards that are not 3 dementional without die cuts so that I do not have to pay extra postage.  We all know how costly it can get if your mailing many cards and the Post Office charges extra for the demention in the envelope. 

You will see more cards like this returning for your viewing of a couple more Penny Black Stamps that I purchased and stamped for cards to be on hand for a quick card.  
Hope you all have a great day!

Ocean Serenity....

I made this card some time ago.  I had the real (tiny) star fish and and sea shells and tried making waves with parchment paper to feel as if the waves were rolling in. I used glitter paper for the background hoping it may resemble the sun glittering off the water.  Unfortunately, my imagination is bigger than my crafting skills here.
 I also had a few stamps with sea shells and added to it.  This was not particularly one of my more favorite cards I've made trying to resemble the ocean.  So I've continue to make a few more ocean themed cards and will eventually get them photographed and uploaded for you to see. 
All for now....

Ready and Waiting....

This happens to be one of my more favorite cards I've made and still can't seem to part with it and give it to someone special.  Probably because it was hard making the white outer oval cut out.  I used my Big Shot to cut the die cut.  If you notice it did not cut thru both papers and with that said I think that makes this an unusual card?
I'm happy to share it will you all rather than giving it away. I really don't know why I'm so attached to it and not want to present it to someone for a special occasion.  Maybe in time?

It's Time....

Time for another Birthday.  Handed this off to someone for her past birthday.  That someone loved it dearly.  I think the thought of homemade cards sometimes leaves the person receiving them happy. Just knowing someone took special time for them.
Time for another birthday was the theme of this card and inside verse.
I love the blue and green combination with blue hydrangeas seeping in the background
  . Hope you enjoyed it too?

Envelope Gift Pack....

A short while ago I got busy making cards that did not have any embellishments on them or any demention to them so I could mail them without paying extra money to mail them.
                               
I truly enjoyed making these. We so often get carried away with demention on our cards with embellishments.  I begam making a couple of the same kind of each to have enough to make two different gift boxes filled and a decorated envelope to store them in and then gave them to friends as a hostess gift when invited to a special occasion at their home. Here is a close up of each of them.                                               

                                                                              Two different Birthday cards.


.

One Get Well card.


One Sympathy Card.


And....last but not least a decorated envelope to put them in and look pretty enough without having to wrap them.

Happy New Years 2017....

Wishing each of my sweet blogger friends a Happy New Year and the best of everything in 2017!

I took down my Christmas house decorations today and put up this sweet little wreath.  I wanted to share this werath with you.  Actually it was a wreath I had already and with the hot sun it totally was destroyed it during the summer months.  It needed a little perk up!
 So I took the old wreath and remade it once again.  I removed all the old worn out and faded wreath greenery.  I purchased new greenery and used the existing twigs underneath to adhere the new items.

I bought pretty ribbon and made a bow to attach as well.  My house it decorated in coastal design so I wanted another coastal wreath to co-inside with the inside decor.
Since I live in a warmer climate and have warm temps almost year round I felt spring coming in the air soon and have already put it up where the old wreath hung and took down the pretty Christmas wreath that was there for the holidays. 

Hope you all enjoyed the Christmas holidays and are looking forward to the New Year?
