Fathers Day Card

The verse inside this card was written by Dawn Babilon, the daughter of some very dear friends of mine. She wrote this for her dad and gave it to him for fathers day some years back. If you use the verse please give Dawn credit. The outside was just Dad cut at 2 1/2" and I added some rain dots, the stamp is SU.

A gift of cards

I made another gift set of thank you cards. They come out much better when you're not throwing them together as I did in the previous one. I love working with black and white and Imaginisce makes this wonderful paper collection called black tie optional. It was just what I needed for this project. The scallop cirle was made with nestabilities, and stamped with coffe house alphabet. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the strip of white card stock. Inside of the folder I included 8 thank you cards.

A birthday card for my sister

I think these double pocket cards have become a life saver for me. When I want a special card and the creative juices are not flowing, this is the perfect solution. I think they are so pretty I hope my sister likes it.

Same paper and theme, 2 cards

I have a very large box of scraps that somehow once they go in there they don't get used much. So I have decided that when I am working with paper I like I will try to get as many cards out of it as possible. Here are a couple I made with walk in my garden cartridge.
