Mom's Birthday Card

I thought I'd participate in a bunch of entries at one time to challenge myself, but also I needed to make a card for my mom's birthday (so two birds, one stone)! Ok, here goes:

1. -

Tic-Tac-Toe I chose Stamp-Card- Scallops. I made the card, obviously, and the scallop I used was from the Storybook Cart. I stamped Happy Birthday on the top left hand corner.

2. -

This is a Happy Birthday Card for my Mom.

3. -

I used a Martha Stewart flower border punch for the top and bottom borders.

4. -

The card is pink and purple all around, I stuck with the sketch, I made the 3D flower from random flowers (all from the Give A Hoot Cart.), and the butterfly is from Storybook, as well.

I used a white Sakura gel pen for the stitching and the dots on the scallop. And put a clear jewel in the middle of the flower.

I hope that I didn't miss anything!

FCCB Challenge Me Monday #50 Tree Time

I made this card for my Aunt Gina....they found a lump in her breast (I found out yesterday that it's benign, which is great!).

I used the Give A Hoot cart. and Designer's Calendar for the pink ribbon. As well as the Storybook cart. for the 'WE' and the scallop and circle. I used a white Sakura Gelly pen to do the stitching...She really liked the card, so I'm entering it into the FCCB Tree Time Challenge (the owl's branch).

Hope you like!

Jitterbuggin' Go Hog Wild!

I have always loved Winnie the Pooh, and Piglet had always been my favorite character.

I almost forgot about the buttons and patterned paper! The dark paper behind the embossed layer (behind the You're my very best Friend) is patterned. It's part of the first paper pack that I ever bought! It has very faint stripes to it....

I'm entering this one into the Jitterbuggin' Challenge Go Hog Wild, with just 4 minutes to spare!

FCCB Challenge Me Monday #49

I made this card using the Wild Card Cartridge. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder to give the little monster a little more texture....I really like this cut out..

On the inside it says Heartfelt Thanks.
