Happy Birthday Renee!
















This is the card the I created for my sister Renee's Birthday last week. We had a quiet family dinner at Claim Jumper to celebrate the big "50" for Renee on Saturday evening. Then Sunday late afternoon and evening, Gary and Renee waited at the hospital for their new grandson Tyler to enter into the world (who came early Monday morning). So I think that Renee had a great weekend to celebrate her birthday.

This card was fun to create using the new edgelit dies and the pleated ribbon. I love so many of the items in our Occasions mini catalog. I used the basic gray as the background on this card so the designer paper and ribbon would pop off the gray color.

Here is the recipe:
Mixed Bunch and Elementary Elegance (FREE) stamp sets
Riding Hood Red stamp pad
Basic Gray, Island Indigo, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Whisper White card stock
Twitterpated Designer Paper
Adorning Accents edgelits die
Decorative Label, Curly Label, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer and Blossom Punches
Blushing Bride 3/8" pleated satin ribbon
Large Pearl Basic Jewels

Thank you for visiting today. God Bless you and your family.

Sympathy Card

Happy Saturday everyone. We made this sympathy card in our stamp club this month. They had a request to emboss, so created this sympathy card. I always try to have a sympathy card on hand because you will have it ready when you need it.

Here is the recipe:
Soft Suede and Whisper White card stock
Take It to Heart and Loving Thoughts stamp sets
Pewter embossing powder (carry over from Holiday mini)
Hearts Collection framelits dies
Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder

I just love using our new framelits. They are so easy to use and love the cut out when finished.

Sure hope the you enjoyed your visit today. God Bless.

Penguin Happy Birthday

Here is a cute Penguin wishing you a Happy Birthday. We made this penguin from the owl punch. It is a bright and cheerful birthday card. We made this card in February card class this month.

Here is the recipe:
Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black, Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie card stock
In Color Designer Series Paper Stack
Basic Black stamp pad
Pear Pizzazz 1/2" stitched poly ribbon
Word Window (cut in half for arms), Owl Builder, 1" Circle and Petite Pennants Builder Punches
Basic Black marker (for strings of the balloons)

Note: This sample I used the 1 1/4" circle punch for the balloons but we used the smaller punch in class. I think the balloons looked better with the smaller punch.

Thank you for visiting today. God Bless you and your family.
