Basket of Apples

Just Us Girls is having a color challenge this week, so I wanted to participate. I didn't have the exact colors, so used what I had to make the A-2 tent card below. The Basket of Apples image is a retired PSX image.

Nurse Anya

I just love this Nurse Anya image from The Greeting Farm. It was the perfect image to use for making a thank you card for the school nurse at my granddaughter's school. I decided for the nurse I would do most of her using paper piecing. This is a good way to add color and decorative elements without having to do much coloring.

Grateful for You

I came across a card on another stampers blog and loved the simple layout. I used her idea to make the card below. The daisy image is from Rubber Stampede.

Hummingbird Card

One of my favorite things to do is sit at my kitchen table and watch the hummingbirds at the feeder in the back yard. Today I made this pretty hummingbird card using black and white decorative paper, my Inkadinkado stamp and my new border punch. I really like the look of this card.

Secret Sister Mailbox

Decorating these little dollar mailboxes from Target has been fun. This is one I decorated for my secret stamping sister. I had a lot of chipboard sayings, so after picking a fun decorative paper, I used the sayings to embellish the mailbox. I then filled it with York Peppermint Patties and sent it on it's way. I really wish I had bought more of these when Target had them in their dollar section. They make such cool little gifts and are fun to personalize.

Dress Card

I found this template for a dress card a few days ago and decided to make one. It's really just a matter of cutting and adding a little ribbon and a vellum skirt over the decorative paper skirt, so it was really easy to make. I did do a little stamping by adding a stamped sentiment inside. Isn't it adorable?

Mojo Monday Sketch 76 Challenge

Today I decided to participate in a card challenge over at the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge blog. It's suppose to be in the 80's today, so I went for a Springtime theme. I wanted to use my pretty Italian Florentine scrapbook paper that I recently purchased, so used the colors in it to complete the card.

The main image for the card is one of my favorites from Personal Stamp Exchange. I stamped it in black and colored it in using a small paint brush and some light pink dye ink. To finish the card I stamped the word 'enjoy' and did some tiny holes along the bottom.
