Anniversary Card

Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I ran 18 miles for my marathon training and the whole time I was thinking "Why am I doing this?". It was hard but not as hard as my 16 mile run so that is good. I have 5 more weeks until the marathon and I am scared!!!

So yesterday was my anniversary also, 34 years to my sweetheart. This is the card I made him. It is an A2 size and the image is from a child's year cut at 3". The paper is DCWV and Stampin Up, all the edges are inked and the image is popped up. The ribbon is from Wal-Mart. The inside sentiment is from SU. Have a great week end!

I love 3D items, there is just something fun about a cute little box or bag or whatever to hold things. I am entering this in the challenge at My Craft Spot, which is to make a 3D item. I am so glad Kimberly added more time to the deadline, I was out of town and I could not figure out how to do this all on my Iphone. I cut this purse on a 12x24 mat and hit fit to page (11.5"). I then took the purse off the mat but left the outside and put my designer paper where I wanted it to be I then took off the outside of the purse and then cut it again on the designer paper. I did trim the edges a little so there would be a border, inked all the edges and glued together. The butterfly was hand cut out of the designer paper, and the wings are popped up.

Bird Card

Wow I am still dizzy! We just got back from Disney World, we were there for a week, so much fun. Just way to hot and humid, we did miss the hurricane though. I still feel like I am on some of the rides though it's crazy, especially when I get on my computer, so if things don't make sense you will know why.

This card was made from the Wild Card cart all at 4.5". The paper is Bo-bunny love this stuff! I inked all the edges and did some pen work. I added stickles to the outer edge of the frame on the front of the card and around the big flower. The ribbon is Stampin Up love all their stuff!! I hope you all have a fabulous day!

MAG Challenge #40

These cards are for the MAG challenge #40, which is to use the Storybook cartridge page 45. For this card I welded 2 of the shadows together in my gypsy at 4" . I cut the flower out 2 times once in pink and once in green and then trimmed the pink one down to get just the flower. I popped up the pink flower added stickles and ribbon and that is it. Not much space to write inside, but I am okay with that.

This is an A2 size card from all stampin up paper, except for the inside of the cutout that is from DCWV. I embossed the gray paper and glued it down. The center design was cut at 3.75" with the blackout (DCWV piece) that is popped up. The center flower was cut at 2" and popped up also. I added stickles to the pink flower and the stems of the black flowers.
Another A2 size card with the mats going down in size by 1/8" each. The flower design was cut at 4" the papers are bo-bunny the ribbon from my scraps. I added jewels to the ends of the swirls.

My Pink Stamper Challenge

I'm entering this in the challenge at My Pink Stamper, which is to make anything that you love or that shows your style. I love 3D items, I just love the whole idea of them, having something cute to put something else in. Just cute! This little box is made from an envelope and the pieces are cut from Songbird and Serenade. All the edges are inked and the center of the fence is inked with white ink. This was made from a class by Sue.

Honorable Mention

I tried out for the My Pink Stamper Design Team, unfortunately I didn't make it. I did however get Honorable Mention and got to choose one of Robyn's stamp sets, this is the one I chose. I love it! I haven't had a chance to use them yet but I will and you will get to see some cute things with them. Well I hope they are cute!

Some of my favorite things in life!

This is what I have been up to for the last three weeks! My kids and grand-kids were here for the wedding and so we just played! I absolutely adore these little people they bring so much joy into my life. Now my house is quiet (and clean) and I miss them terribly. Sorry I don't have a project to post today, I ran 16 miles this morning and am still feeling a little pooped!

Q's Creative Blog Hop

I have had the opportunity to take some classes from Sue Neal, and she is a fabulous creator and teacher. She wanted to have a blog hop with her students, not all of them have blogs so it is a small group of us, but should still be fun. I made this card from Just Because Cards, I love that cart it has some really cute things on it. It was all cut at 5", the dots around the sheep are liquid pearls. All the edges are inked and I used my white gel pen for the dots.
Go here for the rest of the hop I hope you have fun!
This card is a big "Thank Ewe" to Sue for all she does for her students!
