Swirls and vines and a pop of blue

Hi
This is a design from the Silhouette Store and cut on my Cameo.  Pretty simple, layered on bright red with some little blue jewels to help make the wee butterfly pop. 
Have a Blessed day.

Butterflies and swirls


Hi,
Here is a beautiful design by and I have done it again.  I thought it was by YorkieMom but when I went back to her site I could not find it.  So if this is your design please let me know and I will give you the credit.  It is such a beautiful design and cuts so nicely on the Silhouette Cameo.  The back ground paper is egg plant.  All the jewels are from the Dollar Store.
I have no idea how the card got turned sideways and also have no idea how to straighten it out.  As I have said before, new camera, old brain.
Have a Blessed day.

A little thank you note

Hi,
I haven't been making many cards but I needed a thank you note last night and this was so easy to put together and so pretty.  I got the idea from here
http://www.frenchiestamps.com/
Hopefully I will be getting into more cards.  I actually have 2 more to show you but I must find the site that I took the svg from so will post them when I find it.  That is a bad habit I have; not keeping the information of where I got things from.
Have a Blessed day.

New Camera, Old Brain, couple of cards





 
Hi,
It has been awhile since I posted.  I have a new camera and with everything else going on in my life right now I have not taken the time to figure out how to use it or get all the pictures from it to my computer.  I apologize for the brevity of this post but will answer any questions if you have any.
The first card is a birthday card for my brother.  The envelope has a light stamp on the front as you can see in the pic.  The idea came from France Martin http://www.frenchiestamps.com/t
The graduation card idea came from her also.
I don't remember who posted how to do the last card but the petal design card is from Mirwood Designs.  Both graduation cards could hold gift cards or money.  Whoops, didn't notice the last card was upside down but you get the drift.
Hope this will be the start of my making and posting cards again.
Have a Blessed day.

Tea tray



Hi
I know this is not a card but it turned out so well I wanted to share. 
Two years ago when we were visiting our friends in B.C. they were having their kitchen back splash changed.  I fell in love with the tiles and asked for some of the scraps.  Well it took me two years to do because I hadn't found the right tray.  When I finally found the right tray it came just in time because they visited yesterday and I was able to give it to them.  The tiles aren't blue but when the light hits them a certain way they change colors.  I think they are gorgeous.  If you are able to click on the picture you will see some very pretty colors that aren't visible otherwise. 
Have a Blessed day.

Simple note card

Hi,
There was one more corner left of the dp from the other two cards and it was just the right size for a note card so here it is.
Have a Blessed day.

Faux cloissone butterfly

Hi
I loved the faux cloissone look that I saw on Split Coast Stampers awhile ago (a long while back ) and so tried it and the butterfly has been sitting in the P.O.T.D. along with the cut glass picture  so I decided to marry the two.  The folder has a cut out in the center so the inside of the card is covered with another piece of card and I made the card with a hinge.  I am not entirely happy with the card but I think the butterfly is gorgeous.
Have a Blessed day.
