Chilling and commissions

Hello all. I hope your holiday season is progressing pretty well.
I have been trying to do christmas shopping, Its alittle hard when i don't know what to buy.

I have been a small number of cards. I gave this one to my hairdresser when she gave me my cut. pattern paper by DCWV, The stamp set is from MFT- Baby its cold outside. I love doing paper piecing. My hairdresser thought it was pretty nice that i gave a handmade card.

I was asked before the weekend by one of my co-workers to make a card for him. I said sure, what kind? He said he wanted romantic birthday. It had to have the color blue with white. I think i did quite well with this one. I love the stickers from K & Company. these matched well with the color theme. i got to use my nesties for the mats for the flowers.  i used a glossy accents in white for the embellishment on the foil mat.   Well to make more cards. thanks for hanging with me.

Little Thanks Card.

Well after yesterday, i have a new respect for thunderstorms. I work in Syracuse and just got out of work for the day. All i got to see was a gray-green sky. With lots of lightning, i got to my car before it started to rain.
I have two different ways to go home. Just my luck i picked the wrong one. Straight into the heart of the storm. The rain came down so hard you couldn't see. Then it started to hail. 3/4 inch hail. Lucky for me i found a overpass to park under. It flooded some roads. i waited until most of it passed to try to get home.
I love looking at storms but i don't like being in it.

Hoping there is no more storms for awhile.

I did this card because it reminded me of spring. I found some neat Basic Grey dollies at Big Lots.
I can  use these on my cardstock for card. I love working off my stash.( which i have to do more).
The cardstock is from Recollections. The dollie is from Basic Grey. Stickers are from K & Company-new ones from Joanns. Ribbon from Offray. The sentiment is from my stash.
Just a quick and simple card done on my lunch. Hoping to hear about any submitted cards to magazines. I need to do more because the deadlines are coming up.

Thanks for hanging with me Today.

Birthday Cupcakes

Hello all. I am trying to get my birthday cards built up. I decided to do a simple birthday card.
I choose to use the stamp sets that i got on clearance at Michael's. They were redoing their inventory so alot of sets went on clearance.
Lets just say i got a bunch of stamp sets that way.

I used Georgia Pacific card stock for my base. Its a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 card.
I stamped and colored the cupcakes on the card. then i stamped another to cut out.
i colored it and popped it up with foam squares. I used a template to do my dots around the border of the card.
When i stamped the sentiment, i first stamped it in light green ink, then stamped in black to the right slightly to do a cool shadow effect.

I colored the images with my mini crayola markers that i have at work.
The cupcakes from from Hero Arts. The sentiment is from Stampendous.

Hopefully i will have another birthday card to show you soon.
Thanks for hanging out with me.
