A Tree for All Seasons

I have been on a cleaning and organizing frenzy in my craft room. So I am finishing cards that were partially started at one time or another. I started this card using Kraft card stock with a background stamp (Linen, now retired). So I used the stamp set "A Tree for All Seasons" to create a fall birthday card.

Stamp Sets: A Tree for All Seasons, Linen, Sincere Salutations

Card Stock: Kraft, Chocolate chip, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White

Ink: Basic Black and Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Brads, Chocolate Chip Poly-Twill Ribbon

A Beautiful Thing - Get Well Card

When someone is sick, injured or just caught a cold there is nothing nicer than to send a get well card to let that person know you are thinking of them and wish them well. This card was made with the stamp set "A Beautiful Thing" . I like it because it is simple but elegant.
Card stock: Real Red, Whisper White and River Rock
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Ribbon

Thanks for looking.

Book mark ideas

I know many of you are avid readers. Some of us read to be entertained, others for relaxation or just for information. I don't know about you but I alway seem to use a scrap piece of paper to mark my place in the book. So being the stamper I am I decided to create a more elegant bookmark and toss the scrap piece of paper. Once again, I just can't say enough about the Pretties Kit. Here are 3 samples of the ones I made this week. Enjoy! Now it's your turn to go use up some of your scrap cardstock to make yourself a new book mark. Have a great weekend.

Birthday/Mother's Day card for my Daugher

Big whoops on the information of this card. I made the
same card for my daughter for Mother's Day. I duplicated
it for a birthday card and I scanned the birthday card
instead of the Mother's Day card. So I am sharing both at one time.

I really like the Pretties Kit. You can dye the white flowers to match your color scheme.

Hope you like it.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner. I thought I would share the card I made for my Mother this year. It's a simple but elegant card. Happy Mother's Day to all.
