Elements of style

Goodmorning stampers,
Wow...look at all these cards! My upline Michelle Halleen has a wonderful WooHoo (our groups name) event every year and these are my swaps.
I love how my cards came out! They had a very vintage feeling to them which is so popular right now.

Here is a close up of the card. It has lots of sparkle all over it!

Goodmorning stampers,
The other day I showed you a card with beagles on it. I loved this I decided to make another card with the same style.
Some of my favorite things right now are birds and butterflies. I can spend hours (though I never really have more than a minute) watching the hummingbirds at the 3 feeders I have in our backyard. I am lucky enough to live in Southern California so they visit me pretty much year round!
I found this stamp set at that lady with a J's store. It is a Inkadinkado clear set. Well there is like over 20 images of all different kind of winged creatures and I just fell in love with it!!
This card just says "Spring!" to me. Hope ya like it!

A Note of Thanks

Hi there stampers,
O.k. so I have a beagle...she is the cutest thing ever....but she is a that means she eats anything she can get her hands on. Gigi is a big ol' pig!!! She finds the kids socks and eats the toes out o them....she gets ahold of water bottles and chews them to shreds...she has even been known to get ahold of some of my stamping products and eat them. So I had to make an emergency visit to the vet a couple of weeks ago. Gigi got a bottle of my thyroid medicine and ate the whole months supply!!
I know, you are saying how the heck did she do that? Well, its always on my night stand and she has never bothered it before. The only thing I can think of is that the kids knocked it on the ground somehow and she just went to town on the bottle.
So this is a card I made to thank the vets office for their help pumping her stomach and feeding her IV fluids all day.
Now my husband says, "why are you sending them a thank you when we paid them a small fortune?"
True, yes...but the thank you is for the fact that my little mischievous beagle is home safe and sound (until the next emergency!)

Easel card

Goodmorning stampers,

Today's card was made for my friend in Canada who I miss so very much. I try to send her a card every few weeks so she knows I haven't forgotten her.

This is a easel card. I absolutely love this design of card. Its always fun for me to make cards that have different folds or measurements than the standard.

I used a stamp set by There She Goes.

Paper:So saffron, pretty in pink, Sending Love specialty paper, wood sheets,

scallop square die, scallop trim border, pink corduroy brad, watercolor crayons and aqua painter

Three little words

Goodmorning stampers,
My anniversary was last week and this is the card I made for my wonderful husband of 16 years!
I thought this stamp set was so cute with all the critters...and since we like to go camping and hang out in the great outdoors I felt it was appropriate!
This was the inside of the card. Simple but to the point!
