Birthday card with Coordinating Envelope


This week at My Sheri Crafts, Marge has chosen "Create a birthday card & coordinating envelope" for our theme.  I love making a matching/coordinating envelope, I just don't seem to take the time to do it very often!


I made a quick Birthday card with an image I had colored quite some time back.  It's from Designed To Delight.  I colored it with colored pencils and used a piece of ribbon from a spool I've had for years.  The bottom of the card is embossed and I used the same folder to emboss the flap of the envelope.  It's hard to see, but I promise it's there!


I know this card is pretty basic and very CAS, but it was actually the first one I made the day I finally got back into my craft room after surgery (even though others have been posted here in front of this one). I really liked how it turned out, so I went with it!

A Quick Thank You card

Today is the day for another challenge at The Outlawz !  We are sponsored again this week by 


Challenges in our Twisted Thursday group are always Anything Goes with an Optional twist!  This week the twist is "Anything Goes". That's right, it's totally ANYTHING GOES!!!

I made a quick Thank You card with another of Sherri's cute images. 

The embossing folder is from Cricut, and the paper flower is from Creative Memories.  I added a little gem to the center 'cause you just gotta have at least a little bit of bling!  The image is colored, as usual, with Spectrum Noir markers.

Sending a huge "THANK YOU" to Sherri Baldy for sponsoring us this month and sharing some of her little cuties with us!

I hope you'll join us this week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday!

The inside says "I Toadily Appreciate You!"  The embossing is a Cricut Cuttlebug folder and the dragonfly ribbon is from Michaels.

We're Up In The Air at Tuesday Throwdown !

Hi!  Yes, this post is really late for a Tuesday, but I've been having issues!  My Gall Bladder has decided to die off on me, so I've had attacks almost every evening and as soon as I left work today I went to Springfield to meet the surgeon and schedule surgery.  So, Thursday morning that little organ will be leaving me!

So.... on to our challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  We are sponsored this week by 

http://lacysunshine.weebly.com/
and our theme is "Up In The Air - Things That Fly"

I used Lacy Sunshine's "Jamie & Maddie" image for my card.  I colored this right after I saw my granddaughter and her date dressed for prom and was inspired by their colors.  I initially was going to make a layout page for their prom pictures, but another gall bladder attack was setting in when I needed to get the project done and I knew I didn't have enough time to make a layout, so I made this card instead. 

The image is cut out with a Spellbinders die and the doves are Cricut cuts. I think the paper is from Die Cuts With a View.

And here is my inspiration.....
This is my oldest granddaughter, Kaylee, and her boyfriend, Jake. The cabin was my Mom's craft cabin and the new owner of the farm was nice enough to let them come out and take pictures there.  Personally, I think she's beautiful!!!!!


Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll join us this week!

Mother's Day is coming!

This week at My Sheri Crafts Sandy has challenged us to "Make A Girly Card". 

I used some scraps that were on my worktable to get started on this one.  The blue medallion is a Spellbinder's die, the scalloped circle is a Cricut cut.  They're mounted on some handmade floral paper with a strip of sheer yellow ribbon.  The "Mom" cut is from Cricut's Mother's Day 2010 cartridge.  The flowers were in a yard sale find and I finished it off with a bow of sheer pink ribbon.  

I hope you'll join us with your girlishness!
