Golden Wedding Anniversary!

Happy 50th Anniversary to a very special couple…Louella & Lew!!  Louella’s one of my favorite people to stamp with!  A very sweet person with a never-ending sense of humor.  Could be one of the reasons she and Lew have been married for 50 years!

IMG_8274Came up with this design by following FMS178:  

I wanted another color besides gold, and Crisp Cantaloupe works well with the gold.  And this is the first time I’ve used Gold Satin Ribbon.  It’s just beautiful and very high quality!IMG_8275

Supplies Used:

  • Paper:  Crisp Cantaloupe & Whisper White CS, Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Gold Foil Sheet (5 1/2 X 3 3/4), Gold Glimmer Paper
  • Stamp Sets:  Big News, Regarding Dahlias, Bravo
  • Embellishments:  Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Circle Framelits #6, Small Heart Punch, Chalk Talk Framelits, Bigz Simple Numbers, Gold Embossing Powder

I’ve been into vellum lately.  It’s something I usually don’t use much, but I really love the results!  Here’s another vellum card I recently made…IMG_8224

This weekend I plan to play with my FREE SALE-A-BRATION VELLUM!!  There’s still time!  Spend $50 & get free SAB product!  Contact me before the end of March to take advantage of this great sale!

 

 

A Real Hero

One of my patients, a member of the 100th Infantry Battalion, received the French Legion of Honor last week, France’s highest decoration!! What a fine man he is!! Wish I could share details about him, but you know, confidentiality & all that…

I dug through my Paper Pumpkin stuff & came up with the perfect card for him!

Isn’t this perfect? IMG_8007
The sentiment comes from Starburst Sayings. Here’s what it said on the inside:
IMG_8009
A Big Thank You to all our military!!! We’re so proud & grateful to all of you for your many sacrifices!

Special Card for Abe’s Graduation!

I’m so proud of my nephew, Abe, who is graduating from college today!!!  His whole family moved to Roswell, NM for the year to support him- what great parents!  He’s worked very hard for this achievement! 

Here’s a picture of Abe relaxing with his buddy in the dorm!

I can’t be there, so I’m sending him my favorite card…a CARD IN A BOX!!IMG_6102  IMG_6104  IMG_6106

Isn’t that owl a hoot?!!! Ha ha ha!

I sent Abe a 3 month subscription of My Paper Pumpkin & this is what he wrote on Facebook:  “I just finish my finals and I came home and was just going to go to bed and then I get this Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail from my Auntie Cheryl.
Now I am going to make stuff. It is so great and I am feeling crafty. hahahaaa”

I just LOVE the June Paper Pumpkin kit!!

The box is filled with all these goodies to make 20 pinwheels!  Here’s Elisa making her pinwheels for her Rotary Breakfast:

These are perfect if you’re having a BBQ or party.  But since I’m not, I’ve made a few cards to give you some ideas!

IMG_5196

Here’s the same card, but I added a little more bling!  Notice the cute little paper clips that came with the kit?  Love those!!

 

IMG_5200

This simple card was CASED from Debbie’s Designs.  Go check out her blog for tons of ideas, including a summer banner!

IMG_5201And here’s my final card, using a smaller pinwheel.

Cards. ‘ Tis the season for graduation cards!  This was the first one I made…trying out the new In Colors!  I really like them!  IMG_4838

But someone already requested a Baldwin HS card…so I’ve changed the colors for her.IMG_4856

Here’s the Baldwin Card.  If you’re coming to class, let me know the school colors you want to help me prep.  We aim to please!IMG_4855

The inside left has a slot for slipping in a gift card or some cash!IMG_4854

The sentiments are brand new, and you’ll see them in the new catalog (which I’ll have for my customers any day now!!)  It’s called Bravo, and has 13 cute stamps.

I’ve already shown you another card we’ll be making, but I’ll show you again:

I’ll come up with a simple, speedy card to go along with these.

Hope you can join us!  Let me know!
