In an attempt to catch up a bit, I am going to post some random cards here. I went through photo files on my laptop, and thought, Good grief! I am so far behind! Here goes!
This was for a nephew and his new bride. I love this die from Stampin' Up! It makes fancy cards so quick and easy! The glimmer paper is sweet sugar plum, and I think I had sparkles on my floor for weeks!
I have another nephew in the US Navy, stationed in Japan. The Open Sea stamp set goes perfectly with this paper stack, also from SU, though I forget the name. Plus, I think lost lagoon is a perfect color for ocean themed cards!
Now, a card for a niece. I had to take the photo quickly before I stuck it in the mail. Her sorority recently took group photos with everyone wearing burgundy, holding sunflowers. I had a stamp set in mind; turns out I gave it away! So I chose this Itty Bitty set from Unity Stamp Company. It's hard to tell, but the crown is gold embossed. I brushed more mustard and delightful dijon ink around the bees, and sponged my embossed background. And I love the lace as an added detail!
Another nephew (I have 12, not to mention nephews-in-law!) was in a musical recently. It was put on by a group called The Penguin Project, and the entire cast is made if children with developmental or sensory disabilities. I am so proud of Ethan being on stage, even doing a few dance steps and having a few spoken lines. The "Broadway Bound" dsp from SU was perfect. My penguin is from an unknown dollar bin source.
Finally, this card was made months ago for a friend in ministry who completed her term in leadership. She was SO supportive of me, as I grew to understand my own role. I am blessed to have worked with her.
I have lots of "get organized" goals for the coming months. Not just here, but in reading more books, getting more exercise. I better not wait until the New Year...no time like the present!
Thanks for stopping by!
