Another Masculine Card

This is the second masculine card I made for my sisters' sets. I like this one very much. The plaid paper is so rich and the embossed center works well with the rest of the card. The sentiment is popped up and I added the twine and the faux brads to complete the look. I hope my sisters like it as well. I am working on my Christmas cards this week, so pretty soon I will more to post. Have a great day!

Masculine card

Hello! I thought this card would be great for men - not too frilly or cutsie. This is part of the set I am making for my sisters. I found the paper about a year ago and liked it very much. This card had to be a little wider than the average card to get the whole song on the front, but it was just a 'minor' adjustment. (LOL) I finished another card for the set, but I have to take the pictures again because the embossed part is covered with a glare. I hope you have a great day!

My Brother's Birthday

This is the card I sent to my brother Craig for his birthday. He loves to fish so I thought this card would be great for him. I made two of them because my brother Allan also loves to fish, so he will get his on his birthday in September. It was fun to make and I couldn't wait to use the great fishing lure ribbon I found a while ago. The inside sentiment is 'best fishes!' from a Stampin' Up set. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!

Sympathy Card

Hello! This is going to be a part of a set of cards for two of my sisters. They want an assortment of greeting cards to have on hand. I am making six of each of the cards in the set. Each sister will have two and I'll keep two for me. I love the patterned paper on this card. First I had ribbon on it, with the sentiment on the bottom right. I didn't like the ribbon I used, so I tried something different and used the pearls. I like how it turned out. Now, I'm working on a birthday card for my brother Craig. He loves to fish, so we'll see what I come up with. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Hey Chicky...

I loved this stamp set since I first saw it. It's one of the cool sets from C.C. Designs, where my buddy Crystal is on the design team. The chick is so cute and I love the flower. I made this one a couple of days ago, but had to wait until the recipient got it in the mail to post it here. I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils, used some scraps of patterned paper and a little ribbon to match the cardstock. I love how bright it is, too.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you have a great day.
