Black & White

Happy Monday to you!  Can you believe it's the last day of March?  Not sure where all the time went.  Today's cards are inspired by Brandy at  Her video shows how to make 10 cards in 20 minutes.  I only made four cards using her basic design. 
I punched a circle into each card and added the flower
to the inside of the card. 

To make the flower I stamped it several times and
cut each section out.  I then stacked it with foam adhesive. 

Inside of the card.

On white CS I stamped the flower image to
create the paper.  It's beautiful don't you think?

I really had fun making these cards.  Hope you have a beautiful day!

Can't Weight

Good Morning Everyone! Today I am sharing a card I sent to my TOPS retreat pen pal.  She is an amazing lady.  Without reveling her real age I will tell you she is over 65 years old.  She teaches Zumba classes at several Senior centers here in Albuquerque.  She looks amazing and so full of life!!! I am going to take one of her classes!!  If I say it enough times maybe it will get me to one of her classes....LOL This is the card I sent her. 
The scale is a die cut from QuickKutz.  Don't you think
this kind of looks like a TV set the way I layered the scale?
Just remove the circle and you have a TV set...
See this is how  new ideas are born....LOL

Looks more like a scale at this angle.  LOL

Hope you have a wonderful day today!!!!!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Coffee Card

Good Morning!  Ready for some coffee?  I enjoy my coffee every morning.  Can't start my day without it so I was so excited when I came across a video using real coffee to make a card.  Here is the blog I got the idea from:
Of course I didn't have the same stamps etc as Brandy
had in her video so this is my version of the coffee card. 

A close up of the coffee.  It smells really good too.
I can't wait to send this to someone so they can open
the envelope and smell the coffee. 

Inside the card. 
Hope you enjoy your day!

Mother's Day Card

Hello everybody! Hope your having a FANTASTIC day!!  I am sharing some Mother's Day cards I made for OWH.  Are you thinking its to early for Mother's day?  For our troops we need early.  The OWH group has to mail out seasonal cards early.  These will be shipped to the troops by March 31st  so the soldiers can mail them out to their loved ones by Mother's day.  

A full sheet of 12 x 12 double sided
pattern paper was used for the cards.

I embossed the CS then attached the cloth lace and pearls. 

Here I used a peel off backing paper lace.
Thank you for stopping by today.  Happy Stamping!

TOPS Baskets

Happy Monday to you!!  Today I am sharing a couple of office themed baskets I have been working on.  My TOPS (take off pounds sensible) group donated office items for two raffle baskets.  I volunteered to put them together and this is what I came up with.  
Here are the items before I started to decorate them. 

These are the items after I added some paper, ribbon etc. 

I made pockets for the mechanical pencils and
decorated the outside of the pencil boxes. 

I printed out labels for a lot of the items.
I put them into bags and added ribbon.

The Index cards are covered  with paper and flowers.
I stamped and colored one of the sets of cards.

It reads:  I wonder if knowing it all......burns off calories?  

These are pens and magnetic clips. The stamp says"
Listen honey- The dress is by Ralph Lauren.....
The body by Chocolate Chip!

This is a note book I covered in card stock and stamped
"Friends are like underwear always near you".
These are the two baskets with all the items in them. 

One of the lady's made and donated two scarfs. I used
the pink one for the top of the basket as a decoration.
The other purple one I wrapped around the
inside of the other basket. 

This is made with a purple boa (from the Dollar Store)
as a decoration for the top of this basket.
The flowers are from my daughter's graduation party.

The finished baskets ready for the raffle. 
Sorry about the long post.  I had a lot of fun making these.  When I started them I was going to decorate all the items.  That didn't happen....LOL  It was a labor of love.  Have a super great day!!!

Wild West

Hello Ya'll!  Let's Ride, It's Thursday!! Some more Cowboy cards for OWH. 

Since the cards can't be 3-D if you use ribbon the
bows or knots need to be tired in a flat fashion. 

Hi Ho Silver!  Have a good day!!!!

More Cowboy Cards

Ready or Not Ya'll .....It's Wednesday...Yes more "Cowboy Cards".  LOL

Inside all of the OWH cards, I add white
CS on both sides of the cards.  That way the
soldiers have more room to write on. 
Have a cowboy of a day!
