My son got married in Aug 2014. This is the card I made them.

Here are a few cards that I made the last couple of months.
Sent a couple of these. One to Peg and Gary for having us stay at their house and hosting a family reunion. 

And a couple of these, thank you notes and Birthday cards.

Haven't sent this one yet

This went to Connie for having us stay at their house for a week only the card was in Island Indigo. 

Here is the card I made for my grandson for his second birthday. He had a fire truck birthday and his mom and I made a cake and then this card fit right into the theme.
Also the cake.

I think that kid dreams about fire trucks. 

Here is a card I made using this technique. Here. I am making another today 11/7/2015 to send to my sister who had a stroke last week. It will read thinking of you. But I love this technique.

A card from May of 2012? maybe, I just love it.
I realized that there are a lot of cards that I have made and have pictures of but I have never posted them. Also, some of these cards are my originally made and never made again so I'm thinking I will go back and make some of them again. I don't know who I sent this to but chances are I won't send it to the same person. Now I have a record that is easily accessible.

After so long

I have finally started making some cards after moving here in Dec 2013. We have been working on the house and taking care of grandchildren. Those pictures will follow. Here are some cards that I have made and sent.
This one I sent to a friend who was doing a weekend retreat. It was to encourage her. 

This one goes in the mail this week. My sister Beth is getting married on Sat. May 30 2015 to Albert. I wish you could see the shine on this one, I sprayed it with smooch spray. 

I made two of these. One for my DIL Milana and one for a dear friend Elaine. Both for Birthday

This one was for my mom this year. Her favorite color is blue. She loved it. Just a note on this one. I brayered the inside of the embossing folder with Marina Mist and ran it threw the Big Shot. Then took the Night of Navy pad and lightly skimmed over the raised embossing. 

This one went to a friend who is had 2 surgeries on her eye for detached retina and is soon going to lose her mother. 

This card turned out to be one of my all time favorites and it wasn't that hard to make. I sent one to my best friend Debra and one to my sister Margaret for their birthdays. I got this idea out of the catalog. 2014-2015 page 56

My SIL William graduated from Belmont University with a degree in pharmaceutical sciences. He started a job April 1, we are so happy for him. 

If you have any questions about any of these cards you can send me an email. Thanks for looking.

This is Jeanette's birthday card for this year. It is called triple stamping. The idea behind it is you cut three white panels of card stock, each about 1/2" to 3/4" smaller than the previous one. Then temporarily stick them together and stamp on them. Then Cut matting of a complimentary color for in between each layer. In this card I have used these measurements. 
4 x 3 1/2, 3 x 2 1/2, 2 x 1 1/2 All white card stock
4 1/2 x 4, 3 1/4 x 2 3/4, 2 1/4 x 1 3/4 Crumb Cake card stock
Card base measures 4 3/4 x 8 1/2 folded in half.
Then I stamped the happy birthday medallion from Happiest Birthday Ever three times, twice on Pool Party and once on white and punched them each out. One with the scallop circle punch, one with 1" circle punch and the smallest one I hand cut. No punch fits it exactly.Layered on top of each other and popped them on the card with dimensionals. I used crumb cake bias tape for the bow. I ran the crumb cake mats through the Big Shot with the embossing folder Beautifully Baroque. Glued it all together with Tombo glue and put it one a white card stock base. 
The images are from Fresh Vintage and Delicate Doilies and the ink is Crumb cake, Pool Party and Basic Gray.
