Thanks for the support

My husband had knee surgery lately, and a new acquaintance was kind enough to lend him some crutches. I remembered that I had downloaded a crutches cut file for my cricut awhile back, and realized it would make the perfect thank you card for this kind gentleman.

Unfortunately, I don't remember who I got the cut file from ~ but thank you, whoever you are. That card is a pocket card, and the greeting goes on the Blush Blossom cardstock. Cute idea, and great crutches.

Memories of Kitty's Mother

Making a sympathy card is never fun.

When I emailed my new friend Kitty recently, I received an automated reply that she has gone to Florida, where her mother has passed away. I met Kitty only recently, so don't know much about her taste, but decided to try to make an appropriate sympathy card.

Don't know what is up with my scanner ~ it's not showing the colors properly AT ALL. CS for this card is actually black, Old Olive and Wild Wasabi. You'd never know if from the picture, but the layers that look white are really Old Olive cardstock. Brads are also Old Olive jewels.

Does anyone know how to fix the colors on an Epson scanner?

Masculine Birthday

Our neighbours invited us to an Open House to celebrate Al's 65th birthday. What a great excuse to make a card! I have to admit I totally copied this card from a gallery on Splitcoast Stampers...but now that it's done, I can't find the person's card that I copied it from. Whoever you are, I am sooooo sorry that I can't give you credit....please accept my apologies.

I used the leaf from the Natural Beauty set here, along with Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip cardstock and ink. The leaf stamp was colored with markers before stamping and then I used a watercolor pen to add some further definition to it.

Ribbon on the card is white ribbon that I colored with a chocolate chip marker, and the sentiment is embossed with white. A very quick and easy card to make.
