Anniversary Cards

A friend asked me to help her make an anniversary card for her sweet hubby. She is a fantastic scrapper but struggles with cardmaking. I showed her the card designs in Inspiration Avenue and she picked one she liked. She then picked out the materials and I made the card for her. The cards shown her are what I made with the scraps. They are almost the same as the orginal( she has that one!). The black pattern is printed acetate. The black and red are Bazzill Bling paper. The metal embellishment and ribbon were from a Making Memories wedding set. I used a little scrappers floss to tie the ribbons. What do you think?

Happy Thoughts

The computer is still not 100% but I was able to get this card uploaded to share with you. Its the first time I have used this new set- Happy Thoughts. This set caught my eye the first time I saw it and I have been wanting to create with it for a while. I finally had a moment last night and came up with this card. The cardstock is from Bazzill monochromatics ( yellow greens). The pattern paper is from Pop Rockz. I used an eraser and versarmark to make the dots on the background( my new favorite technique! LOL) and inked the edges with Noir palette ink and a sponge. The stamped image is embossed with Transcendence. The flower is a Bazzill bitty blossom and the ribbon is some I had on hand. What do you think??

A Thank You

Thanks to everyone for your love and support during this difficult time... your thoughts and prayers have truly been appreciated!

I finally found a moment to make some thank you cards for everyone who brought food over during the week we had family over. The paper is from scraps I had around.. not sure who the manufacturer is. The flower is from Bazzill and the stamp is one of our new purchase with purchase stamps from TAC. Love this one- I embossed it on kraft cardstock to make it more elegant. What do you think?? ( Sorry the pic is a bit blurry...)
