Nurse Birthday

This is another special request birthday card, I have had  a lot of them lately.  The best part is that I can use up some retired papers I have been hanging onto.  I am keeping this short, three of my four kiddos are in the pool and they seem to be arguing, it is going to be a lonnnng summer!

Smart Cookie

School is winding down for my kiddos, Shelby finished yesterday and Sadie has one more day after today.  Dalton wasn't happy to hear that his school physical(I can't believe my baby boy is going to school) has been scheduled nor that he has to have immunizations.  He had a hearing screening last week and failed it  so he had to have a more intense one yesterday and passed it without any problems.  Sadie loves to take little gifts to her teaches so she helped me make a few.  We found these wafers that just so happened to be in SU colors so we bagged them made a tag to match.

We used the tag from Chalk Talk framelits to cut it out and the sentiment was created in MDS so that we could get the perfect match to our twine in Coastal Cabana.

A closeup of the tag.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Sailor

I am really enjoying the Maritime DSP from the new catalog which will be available for you to order from in just a few days.  For this card I used another Photopolymer stamp set called Setting Sail.  I wasn't sure if  I could use markers to ink the photopolymer but tried it and although it didn't come out very crisp, I liked the weathered look I ended up with.  The little banner is two separate stamps, it was a snap to line them up. Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Girl

I thought I would use this stamp to practice coloring with the Blendabilities, even though  it was on the Retirement List and has sold out.  I used the Blendabilities to color the pearls in the corner as well.  Stampin' Up! announced today that customers will most likely be able to order Blendabilities by the end of June or first part of July.  They want to make sure they have enough inventory to meet the demand and not have to go into backorder.  I also used the photopolymer stamp set called Endless Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by!

Simple Stems

Hope you had a wonderful weekend, ours was filled with family, friends, and relaxing.  The kids stayed in the pool all day yesterday so they went to bed early and without any fuss last night.  Today's card has my two favorite new In colors, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss.  The Simple Stems stamp set is retiring and I checked this morning is still available but only for a few more days. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday, Doctor

Today I have another custom order card, this time a doctor birthday card.  I modified the baby t-shirt die a bit by cutting the bottom off and adding a few angles and a Soft Sky layer to make it a scrub shirt.  Then I added a pocket which is just a small square on a dimensional.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 50th Anniversary

TGIF...I have had a super busy week...but I do it to myself.  I tend to take on more than I can accomplish but this week was a made a little worse because of a trip to the ER.  It seems I have developed a food allergy and it is certainly scary.  Last night I had a class with 17 ladies(most of whom had ever stamped), it was a lot of fun but I was exhausted.  Today's card was a special order and she wanted a Bible verse inside.

I have a non SU set with Bible verses but none of them seemed to fit the occasion.  I picked this one, hope she likes it.  Thanks for stopping by!

Retro Fresh Birthday

I am really going to miss the Retro Fresh DSP from the Occasions catalog.  This is another card for my class, I tried to make something CAS since there are going to be so many.

I cut two different patterns to choose from, I like to give my ladies a choice sometimes.  thanks for stopping by!
