Hello all! I suppose I should have posted this yesterday on "Just Because Day", but as usual I'm a day late and a dollar short! I made this using my new Stampin' up heart framelit and gorgeous bird stamp! I cut the window from cardstock and paper at the same time, stamped the bird on the leftover piece of card and colored it with some Tim Holtz Distress Markers. The banner is from another Stampin' Up set and the sentiment is by Studio G.I added a pretty little Seam binding bow and topped it with a heart shaped stickpin and called it done. Sorry for this horrible pic! Took it at night in my craft room and couln't get the lighting right! Thanks for peeking!
Supplies- Stampin' Up: Stamps, Take It To Heart-Bird and Banner, Seam Binding-Pool Party, and Sizzix Framelit- Heart collection, Stickpin-JoAnn's, In the sewing section. Sentiment- Studio G.

Life is Good

Hi everyone! I have been trying to upload my blog templates back, and as you all know, I am computer illiterate, so I hope it worked. This card was done with a new Stampin' up die for the label and all the stamps used are from Close To My Heart. I stamped the tree and the sun and fussy cut them. I used the negative space from the label die cut on the inside. Hope this works and you can see it and all. Thanks for looking! Supplies: Stamp, Close To My Heart, Splendid Day. Label. Stampin' Up, Top Note Die

Belated Birthday

Hey Ya'll! Good news! My Dad is going home tomorrow after a very lengthy stay at the hospital and a two week stay in Re-hab, He is finally going home! Yea!! No more driving back and forth every other day to Montgomery. Now maybe I can devote more time to my blog, catch up on visiting and spend more time with Hubby and Grandson. This card was made for a customer of mine for her birthday which, you guessed it, I forgot about! I just had to use this cute little bee from The Birthday Bash cartridge, and the origami "flower" (thanks Joy) that was in my stash. The inside sentiment was computer generated and it says " I bee sorry I missed your birthday. Hope you like it and it puts a twinkle in your eye! Thanks for looking!
