My first custom order card!

This is my first custom order card and I must say I am more than a tad nervous. I have never sold a card before and am hoping the lady will like this one just fine. It is for her son who is into guitars and music so this is what I came up with. I used the darling little Hanglar stamp.....just love their stamps. The music paper was some I just recently purchased for no particular reason at the time. lol I dug out the old old Sizzix Fun Serif numbers and Sizzix music note dies that I do not think have been out of their box in years. Was good to go back and use some of my old things. The name and Happy Birthday were cut from my expression. With three charms and some stickles, I finished it up. I will email her photos for her approval and hopefully it will be off to Montana! lol

Challenge I am entering.....beside the one of making my first sale! lol

One more grandson's birthday card

I think this is the last grandson birthday card until July! This is for my little guy that turns 6 on the 28th. I cannot believe how fast they are growing up. When I was looking for an image and came across this cutie from High Hopes, I just knew it was right for Ryan. I can just see him if he caught a frog. He would have that same proud expression. Makes me smile to just think about it. lol Anyway I used some papers from a pad I purchased while at Expo. I used a MS punch. I bought the ticket stamps while at the coast a few weeks ago and love them. No stickles on this one....... that is kind of hard for me to not

Grandson's birthday card-money holder

Here is another birthday card for one of the grandsons. I usually give them money so made a pocket on the inside to hold it this time. This grandson loves football so wanted to use this cute little image from Lily of the Valley. I found a charm that I have no idea how long I have had but it has been awhile as well as the ribbon. The stripped paper is from a pile of paper that I stowed away in a cupboard over two years ago. lol Of course I had to add a little stickles. lol Also used my nessties to cut the ovals and a
fiskars border die for the edge.

Son's birthday card

For years my son and I have had a friendly fight over who was better....Larry or Magic. I decided to make him this card to let him know the fight is still ongoing. lol The box part held four small twix bars but I did not get a photo of them. I also did it for the challenge from my private group that was to make something humorous. I am sure I am the only one that found it funny but I did get a smile from my son as he stated I ruined a great card! lol

Dd's Birthday card box.

This is a card I made for my youngest daughter's birthday. It is the first time I have tried to make the box-book card and am actually happy with it for once. lol I used the cute monkey stamp from CC Designs because my daughter loves monkeys. ( I also thought he is just too cute!) I used three different patterned papers and two different colors of card stock. I used the Nesties for the ovals and a MS border punch for the lace scallops on the inside. As you can see I used plenty of stickles as usual. Gotta love the bling! I filled the box part of the card with her favorite candy-Rolos. Also under the candy is where I wrote our "greetings" to her for her special day. Her son is spending the night with us and he really liked the card. He said he thinks his mom will really like it. This is her son that doesn't show too much emotion for things like this' so it meant a lot to me to see his joy. He said he can't wait for tomorrow for her to get it. lol Gotta love those grandkids!
