Having several card parties, canning tomatoes and Salsa, just no time to keep up with thing. Hopefully things will slow down a little.
Got to love Red and Beige together.
So simple, yet so pretty.
I used one of the dotted embossing folders to make the red background. I love this folder, it makes a great background. The smaller dots is just as pretty. I thought the larger dots would make the flower stand out more than the smaller dots.
The flower and the leaves are from My Favorite Things and they are a die cut. I put 2 flowers together and rotated them a little to make the flower fuller.
Then I punched a small yellow flower with a Stampin Up punch.
Added a large brad in the center and wow, makes a fabulous looking flower.
I stamped the Thinking of You on beige Bo Bunny Design Paper.
Love this stamp, it is so cute with the little boy putting his pants on top of his head, and his shirt on his legs. Super cute.
I'm not sure where it came from, maybe Cat's Pajamas or a Bella stamp, it is a cling stamp. That is the only problem with the cling stamps, if I don't write down where I it got them, later on I don't remember.
Great sentiment from Great Impressions.
I colored the image with water color pencils and markers.
I used the Spellbingers scallop circle and classic circle for the image. I punched a border to put behind the design paper.
I found this lighthouse stamp in my stash, new, never been inked. So I thought what can I do with it.
This is what I came up with:
I stamped the image on shinny paper with India Black Ink. This is the best ink for shinny paper.
I sponged the sunset colors on the shinny paper and them colored the roof tops of the light house with a Tombow Marker.
I have no clue who made this lighthouse stamp, it is on cling and no names anywhere.
Last, I added the Be Happy stamp from Endless Creations on the Modern Label Punch from Stampin Up.
The card base is a different size than usual, I wanted to make it a square, but the scallop die is just a little bit bigger on the length than the width. But I think it is cute just the way it is.
The sentiment is really cute and the bees are adorable.
I used a new die from Memory Box. It is the black circle behind the image. It is called "Whimzy Circle". Memory Box has a lot of gorgeous dies. I can't wait to get my hands on some more of them. I sell the dies if you are interested in them. You can go to Memory Box's web page and check them out. ( memoryboxco.com ).
Well, that is it for today, hope to get some more cards on here soon.
Thanks for visiting my blog and come back again soon.

Design Paper from My Minds Eye
Spellbinder Square Scallop Die
Colored with watercolor pencils and blended with a blender pen.
Not one of my favorite animals. But this pink pig is a cutie. And the sentiment is totally awesome with the pig.
"Here's the dirt."
And the inside sentiment, is
"A little birdie told me it was your birthday."

Gorgeous stamps this month. Well, I enjoyed stamping with them.
I had an awesome party, lots of fun and a most creative day for everyone.
I want to Thank You to all of you who came and made the cards.
I made this card as an easel card, I really think this style is so nice.
It stays up right where ever you display it.
The milk crate looks very old and the bottles, well they sure match the crate. And look at the super cute label on the crate.
I colored the image with prisma pencils. Love the browns and orange flowers. It could be used as a Fall card with these colors. I used the square bigz die from Sissix. Along with some drywall tape for the layer behind the square. I then pierced the corners with holes.
I used the label punch from EK Success for my sentiment layer. Popped it up to hold the front of the card up so it would stand up.

Stop back in tomorrow for another great card using stamps from Great Impressions. Thanks for stopping by.
Great, this is the second day for posting, hope I can continue and post everyday.
I made this card thinking of all the family that I need to send a card to and I thought it would work for anyone. The flowers are so bright and cheery to fit any kind of event. This one is for a birthday.
I colored the pocket and flowers with prisma pencils and blended with Gamsol. I stamped an extra pocket and used a foam pop dot to make it off the original pocket. Love the layering. The lacy bottom border is from a Martha Stewart punch. The lacy layer is really a teal color and the camera really made it look a green.
Gosh, I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted. I guess that is what happens when you don't have a good camera and a light box to take pictures of your cards. Well, I have a new camera now, still don't have a light box, but hope my picture-taking will be okay.
Hope I can remember how posting is done, since it's been so long.
Just wanting to post a card so that I could let you know that I am still trying to get some cards on my blog.
Some how I am having a hard time adding the cards that I make. This time it is TAXES and card parties. Just to much things going on at one time. Sorry that it is taking me forever to get my cards on here when I make them.
This Birthday Heart card I made a while ago. I thought it was so pretty with all the colors in the heart. I added Happy Birthday that is a gold sticker.
I like making the easel cards, I think they are so pretty.
The watermelon colored ribbon and flowers makes the card very colorful.
