60th Anniversary card.

This is another custom order I have for that special lady in Montana. I was at a loss as to just what to make for a 6oth anniversary so sure hope she likes how the end product came out. I am pretty nervous on this one as it took me so long to come up with an idea and then try to execute this idea into reality, that I have no time to make another if this one is not ok. Oh the stress I put myself under instead of just playing and having fun! lol Anyway, I just made a simple step card but added "braces" to the bottom so it won't "step out" too far. lol I used the cricut to cut out the names and the 60. For "Love", I had to dig out the old sizzlet dies. A couple MS butterfly punches and some flowers finished it off. Well, actually lots and lots of stickles finished it off. lol I do hope the lady who ordered this and the couple who may receive it, are blessed by it.

another Birthday card

This is another case of my mind deceiving my hands....convincing them that this will work out and be wonderful. lol When I bought this stamp, I wanted to make a card for a dear friend, but now not too sure I will send it to her. She raises cows as pets.....having them all named and everything. lol In my mind I thought the bright pink and black would be just perfect for this image after I got it colored. Seems I would learn not to listen to what I tell myself because things never turn out how I plan them. lol Anyway, here it is in all it's gaudiness. lol

Happy Birthday Jodi!

My eldest daughter turns 34 this month! I cannot believe how fast the time has flown. I remember so well the first time I saw her how excited I was to have my little girl! Her brother was just two years and she was his baby from the start! Oh the memories of so many years and yet it seems like yesterday. I cannot believe how old my kids are making me! lol Anyway, this is the card I made for her. I showed it to her daughters and they really liked it so am hoping she will too.

Happy Birthday wonderful daughter! I love you!

As you can see I use the darling stamp from CC Designs. I thought the "sweets" paper from Nana's Kitchen was so cute I just had to use it. By the time I got the card done, you couldn't see all that much. lol I used one of my new Nestabilities for the doily circle. I think I will enjoy the new nesties I have purchased if I can just remember to use them. When I found the sketch I wanted to use, I pictured this card looking so much cuter than the finished product but then again, my mind lies to me about how wonderful things are going to turn out! lol As usual, I had to finish it all up with lots and lots of stickles.

She loves butterflies so I wanted to use several on her card. Pink is not her favorite color but I just had to make something pink after doing so many boy cards for my grandsons. Hope she doesn't mind too much. lol
