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.

Cupcake card

Hello all. Boy time sure flies by when you least expect it to. I got to do a couple of cards. Using one of the sets that i got from my Micheals haul. I must be on a cupcake streak because this is another cupcake card.
Cardstock is by Recollections. the checked background is a really cool textured cardstock that i got from my local scrapbook store. The cupcake stamp is from Hero Arts. I colored them with my crayola markers. i am going to add a sentiment and some stitching around the checked background.  I just wanted to get a post to my followers.

Thanks as always. for hanging out with me

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.

Happy Birthday card.

HI all. I was making a card for a friend of our family today, and decided to do a extra one.
I am so glad that i can do them during my break and lunch at work.  I have stamps, ink and paper on my desk at work. I wanted to do a spring type birthday card.
Used cardstock from recollections, pattern paper from Basic grey. punch and ribbon stickers from Martha Stewert. Butterfly stickers from K & company. Sentiment stamp from My Pink Stamper-Everyday Life.

I love those stickers, they have just enough glitter on them.  This is the first time i used a punch on a card. I love the polished look it gave. getting ready to get more cards together to submit to magazines. I really have to use some of my stash.

Thanks for hanging with me.
