Football Birthday Card

Hello!  I have just a fun little birthday card today for one of my Sunday School kids.  He's a Mighty Mite foobtball player (3rd, 4th & 5th grade)and our school colors are Black & Gold.
The cuts are all from Sports Mania, the field is a background cut.  He totally loved the card!  He was so sweet and thanked me twice "for the really cool card"!

Thanks for checking in today!

Hello Pumpkin!

Wow, is it already the end of September?  Unbelievable!  I don't know where the time has gone, but I do know "It's Picking Time" at My Sheri Crafts!  Include an apple or a pumpkin on your project and join us!  I made a fun pumpkin-shaped card.
This cut is from Everyday Paper Dolls at 4" and I embossed it with a woodgrain folder.  The base is made with two of the pumpkin cuts just slightly larger, sized and welded with my Gypsy.

The little tag is a Cuttlebug die and I used alpha stamps from Studio G for the sentiment.  A little raffia finishes it off.

 Another of the same cut, slightly smaller for the inside and I trimmed off the vines.  All edges are inked with Studio G ink.
I thought it turned out really cute!  Be sure to go check out all my Design Team sisters projects.  They do such fantastic work!  I hope you will join us with  your pumpkins or apples and see if you win an Ooh-La-La award or maybe even be our next Guest Designer! I can hardly wait to see your creations!

Thinking of you card

Hello!  It's been a little while since I posted anything so I want to share a little card I made the other day. 
 This is a Digi Darla image I've colored with colored pencils.   The image is cut out with Spellbinders Lacy Ovals.  The border is a Martha Stewart punch with pink ribbon behind it.  The paper is from some stuff that was given to me, so I don't know whose it is.  The flower is from Paper Studio, with a brad from my stash.

 The sentiment stamp is from Stampabilities.  All edges are distressed with Dusty Pink and Antique Linen.  The image is pop dotted and the border is raised by the ribbon, so there is more dimension than the picture really shows. 

I'm tickled you stopped by and hope you will leave me a comment.  I haven't had much time to check other blogs lately, as my Dad has been sick quite a bit in the last few months.  Hopefully I'll be able to get around and see you soon!

What about the bling????

Hi!  Thanks for coming by.  I have another card to share that I kind of like, but not too sure about.  I love most everything about's the bling I'm not sure about.  I don't think I'm happy with the placement--too late now though! :)

I do love the sentiment, which is a Just Rite stamp and the labels from Spellbinders.  The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the charm is from my stash.  The bling is added with my I-Rock.

Inside I cut the largest label from the Labels Four set and everything is inked with Tim Holz distress ink.

So what do you think?  Too much bling, misplaced bling or what?

Sing Your Song

 Hello!  Happy Grandparent's Day!

I have a card to share today that's really a different style for me.  What do you think?  I used my Gypsy to make a card base and welded a birdcage shadow to the edge.  The shadow cut is from Serenade cartridge. 

This is how the card looks laying flat.  I added a strip of lace from a bag of goodies a friend gave me.  I  distressed the edges with rose pink and antique linen.  As you can see I need some practice on that!  :)This sentiment is my own and computer generated.  The lables are Just Rite Floral Ovals.  The charm is from my stash. 

Here is another version of the card with a sentiment from Just Rite stamps.  I may use this for a friend who will be moving.  I also added another strip of the ribbon across the lace.

This stamp is from the Christmas Wishes set.  Obviously this isn't a Christmas card, but I really like the font.

 The birdcage and bird are from Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge.  I used all the layers and changed the papers from blue to pink.  I had some fun playing with that!  I'm still pretty much a novice with the Imagine. 

Anyway, I'm please with how it turned out.  I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!

My Sheri Crafts #93

Happy Labor Day!!!!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned.  As this post goes live (I hope!), we are heading back home from a short vacation and then enjoying the holiday at home.  

Welcome to another My Sheri Crafts challenge!  This week we are saluting white.  Labor Day is traditionally the last day to wear white, so show us your card or project of any type that is White On White!  Here's my card:

 The card is an A2 size .  I cut a piece 1/4" smaller and ran it through the crimper. The next layer is another 1/4" smaller and embossed with a Sissix folder.  It doesn't show really well, but I used a silver metallic marker around all the edges.

 This lable is an Imagine cut.  The second layer is silver foil paper.  I added a few gems to the flowers on the embossing.  The sentiment stamp is from Pink by Design. 
 I just love this white ribbon with silver metallic threads.  It came from Wal-Mart.

To finish the inside I just used another strip of white, edged with the silver metallic marker and wrapped it in the ribbon.

Now it's your turn!  Get out your white before the Fall colors set in and join us at My Sheri Crafts!  Be sure to check out all my Design team sisters blogs and leave some bloggie love!  Can't wait to see your creations and find out who is winning some "Ooh-La-La" Awards!
