I LOVE to create greeting cards. This is a place
for me to share some of my favorite cards with family,
fellow card-makers,and friends.
Update: Since I began this card-making blog in 2009, we have moved to a warm, sunny place, retired, and gotten very busy. Even though my love of making cards has not lessened, my time "for" card-making has diminished. I had actually considered taking down my blog because of my lack of time to make and post cards. Instead I will try to post more regularly with a variety of things. Please bear with me while I attempt to expand my topics.
Baby Shower Card
Finally, a card to post! Last night I hosted our second PEO card-making work session. We finished all 179 cards! Eight of us worked non-stop for 2.5 hours. They are ready for sale and in the hands of the Ways 'n Means chairman.
Today I am sharing a quick and easy baby shower card which I made for our niece's baby shower. Erin and her hubby have decided to be surprised with the sex of their first child, so I used So Saffron and Certainly Celery for her card. The mat was embossed with a Sizzix baby folder. To be honest, I can't remember if I used a Marvy Uchida scallop punch or a Nestabilities die! I did use white Bazzill and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. The ribbon is SU! Certainly Celery. The buttons are from my "stash" and the "welcome baby" is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and punched using the SU! Word Window punch. The sentiment is, of course, from SU! Short and Sweet.
