Hibiscus flower for granddaughters birthday

Thank you Shirley for a gorgeous and simple card to make.
The shimmery paper is foil.  The happy birthday is easy to read when the card is standing up.  Difficult to make cards or type when one arm is in a cast so this is short and sweet.

Thanksgiving napkin card

This is the napkin from Thanksgiving dinner with wonderful friends who are more like family.  It is mounted on cardstock and then mounted on the holograph paper which is more cardboard than paper.  I buy it at WalMart in a big sheet,  The napkin is ironed on the cardstock using Saran Wrap.
So left over swirls and that's it for this time.

Fall birthday card with deer

I needed a birthday card for my brother and since my holograph paper was still on the craft table I just grabbed a deer from the  Silhouette Studio files and created a cut out in the same paper that I used to make the previous card.
So there you have it,

Fall birthday card for our daughter

This is a pretty plain and simple card but I liked it.
The leaf is cut from an SVG from the silhouette Store and mounted with pop dots on holograph card stock.  Greeting printed from the computer on vellum.  Scored the side lines on the SU score board.
 There you have it.

Wedding card Dennis and Lenora Aug. 2015


Slowly getting back to card making.
This is a wedding card for the eldest son of  long time family friends (three generations).  The vellum was crimped with a crimping tool (my new favorite toy).  The inside contains their photo in a heart and the verse is an Apache Wedding Blessing.  I love using this for wedding cards.

Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you  will be warmth to the other.

Now there is no loneliness,
For each of you will be companion to the other.

Now you are two bodies,
But there is only one life before you.

Go now to your dwelling place,
To enter into the days of your togetherness.

And may your days be
Good and long upon the earth.

Have a Blessed day.

Suzie's show horse birthday card

Apparently I made this card but did not post it.  I was asked by a long time friend to make a birthday card for her daughter's birthday with her show horse and this is what I came up with.  The horse drawn on the envelope is with the Silhouette pens.  Love what the Silhouette can do.
Have a blessed day.

Baby dress, sunburst and thank you

I have not been doing much crafting or blogging but once in awhile I make a card or two.  Mostly when  I need one.  No excuses, just not in card making mood for some reason.
Here are three baby cards, one thank you and one sunburst for whatever occasion it would be needed for.  The thank you is from Bird, and the sunburst is all over the net but the baby dress may have been from Shirley's cards a long time ago  but I am not sure.

Had to take two pics of the thank you card to show how they were popped out.  Also this card is only 2x3 inches.  
Have a blessed day.
