I got some sad news yesturday that a long time friend experienced a death in the family. I made this sympathy card this morning to send. I used new Crate Paper called Pretty Party: Streamers and Story Teller: Journey. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink from ColorBox. I used two pieces of ribbon at the top from my collection of random pieces and I added a button with some twine. The white flowers are from Petaloo. I used a border punch on the orange paper and you cannot see it in the photo but I distressed the edges on the yellow paper. Life is full of so many hills and valleys. It is a reminder to live every day to the fullest and never take a single moment for granted.

I needed a quick Get Well card this weekend for my mother in law who had surgery on her foot. Leave it to my husband to ask me for cards at the very last possible minute! Doodlebug is my favorite and the Cute Cut made it easy to put this card together fast! All the paper is Doodlebug- love the colours! I also used the new teensy print letter stickers for the title and I used the pearls on the flowers. Pretty simple yet very cute card!

I needed a card for my Grandma's birthday and I quickly whipped up this card using Plumeria by Basic Grey. The colours in this line are so pretty and soft which I found perfect for my Grandma. I used a rub-on by Pebbles Inc. on the chipboard accent. I also added pearls to the butterflies and the flower. Here's to a sunny hot week!!!

Father's Day is approaching quickly! Can you believe it is June already? Time to start thinking about all those summer events and activities. I am going to need a few Father's Day cards this year so I whipped up this fairly simple, masculine card. I find it difficult to make cards for men. I guess I am drawn to girly papers and embellishments!
I used Echo Park's This & That line to make this card. The dotted paper is Bazzill from Two Scoops and I sanded it. I also inked all the edges with a green moss colour from ColorBox. The button was a random one from my collection of buttons. The twine is from Karen Foster. I stamped the sentiment in the same moss green ink as the edges.
