A Couple of Cards for You...

Hello again,

It is getting to be the end of the semester, and lots of activities to keep up with, so not much blogging time lately!  Sorry for the delay!  As I mentioned before, my son is graduating on May 24, so I thought a card of congratulations was in order:

I used Papertrey Ink stamps for the scene, and Stampin' Up! for the sentiment.  I hand-drew the mortar board, cut it out, popped it up on a pop dot, and added twine as a tassle.  The balloons are made from the Tiny Tags sets, and popped up as well.

Next up,  I recently went to the birthday dinner of an old, dear friend...hmmmm, that doesn't sound right does it?!  Anyway, we have known each other since high school, and I am NOT going to tell you how long ago THAT was ;-)

This is the card I gave her - with a Starbuck's gift card tucked inside, yum!  I used PTI stamps on this one as well, with digital paper from iralamijashop, and crinkle ribbon from Memriemare.  Love those Etsy shops!!

Well, it has been a very busy weekend, and I need a little stamp time, so I will get busy, 'cause that is one of the little things that makes me smile!

  2. Beautiful cards! I love how there are sentiments inside the balloons with the cute penguin! The other card is gorgeous with the crocheted lace and flowers. The bow and tag are fabulous! Thanks for playing at My Craft SPot!

  3. What wonderful cards! The little penguin card is adorable and I love the way you've added sentiments to the balloons. And the second card is breathtaking! The papers and wonderful rosebuds are gorgeous!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at My Craft Spot!
