Make a Wish....

It's sketch #2 at OWH Stars and Stamps. This week's sketch is provided by Karen at Feline Creative.

I've created this card with the idea of it being for a man's birthday... I only have about a dozen or so guy cards that I use each year, so I am currently working on getting them all finished by mid-February! I think I have seven more to go!!
Cardstock (misc); Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye); Stamp (Autumn Leaves); Misc (twine, MM brads, Sakura Gelly Roll, StazOn ink)

Sympathy cards....

Sympathy cards... one of the toughest for me to create due to the very nature of the card. I try to make them simple yet elegant. How about you? I was very pleased with the end result of this card, but it certainly didn't make having to send it to a friend any easier....

Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzill basics, scrap); Stamp (Studio G); Misc (ribbon, Prismacolor pencils, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Kaisercraft pearls)

Happy New Year!!

We're here in 2010! Wow, time flies when you're having fun! What are your crafting resolutions? Mine are: to use more stash, to send more cards (why make them if you don't share them right?), and to update my blog more often (several friends & family have been asking about this). I think these are all doable goals.

Currently I am making a pile of Thank You cards to send to friends and family who were so generous with Christmas gifts this year!! This card is based on a sketch from the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. Check them out sometime!

Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzill basics, misc), Stamps (Stampendous, Savvystamps); Misc. (Brad)
