Slam Dunk Thank You

Inside: Thank You!

Last month at work we were raising money for Big Brothers Big Sister. The local Police Dept (SPD) and the local Sheriff Dept (GCSD) play a basketball game every year where all the money raised goes to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Well my boss started talk crud that he could out sell me on tickets/donations to Big Brother Big Sister. So I told him it was on like Donkey Kong!! I sent an email to my family and friends and in less than 2 weeks they raised $550.00!!! Yay for family and friends!! As my SIL would say “we crushed him!” as my boss only raised $240.00. But we accomplished the main goal and that was we beat the Sheriff’s dept in raising the most money! So to thank my family and friends I made 19 of these cards to send out!

I did black and blue to represent that the local Police Dept (SPD) won!! The image is a free clip art I found on the internet. I used sketch #4 of the April Card Sketch Challenge.

Clean Cards

Swept up Garage

Inside:
So I swept the garage so the Easter Bunny could bring you a new tool!

While my husband was gone last week I decided to clean out the garage as a surprise for him. I wanted to make him a card to sit on his bench so he would get it when he walked into the garage. So I had ideals but when Karen posted the April Inspirational Card Challenge – bonus category – Clean… the cleaning images at Imagine That Digital Stamps came to mind. I told my girlfriend what my thoughts were for the saying and she put it together and made it sound good. He not only liked the garage but he said he also liked the card!

I used Tuesday Morning Sketches #397 as my inspiration (posted to late to enter the challenge!)

So while I was getting ideals I saw some funny house cleaning sayings so I decided to use the rest of my scraps and make some funny cards with this design. See attached cards.

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – bonus – clean. This is what I thought of when I saw the word “clean”.

Palm Tree Beach Birthday

So I made a card similar to this one last year (see below) …but forgot to post it! But a lady requested a palm tree/beach card for her nephew. This version is different because I used a new sun die I recently got (instead of part of a circle) and made the sand bigger on this one. I made the letters the same color as the sand in hopes it looks like it was drawn in the sand!

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – theme – weather. Not sure if this is what Karen had in mind but it is SUNNY WEATHER on this card! (so wish I was there!)

SUPPLIES:
SVG file: Palm Tree @ Miss Kate Cuttables
Sun metal die: Stitched Sky Dies – Gina Marie Designs @ Scrapbook Outlet
Cardstock: Bazzill (kraft)
Accents/Tools: Cricut, Cuttin’ Up Cricut Cartridge, Xyron X

Recipe for A Happy Birthday

Recipe for a Happy Birthday - inside.JPG

One of my regular customers needed a birthday card for her daughter. Her daughter loves to cook. So I decided to do a recipe theme. There weren’t a lot of ideals out there and mostly were for birthday invitations. So I took some bits and pieces from some cards on the internet then added my own ingredients (ideals came from the mom on how they celebrate birthdays) to make a personalized birthday card!

The “lift category” this month in the April Inspirational Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com is to lift Cardiographer!! She is one of my favorites and is a friend of mine. She loves Doodlebug (so do I…friendship at first sight!) and she ROCKS it!! I keep telling her she needs to try out for their design team! Even though I did not “lift” a card of hers I “lifted” the use of Doodlebug which doesn’t count for the challenge but I least made a cute card!! Her cards are cuter but I tried! I fussy cut the presents out of some paper. And used a die cut to make the balloons. The recipe card was from Deedee’s Digis (no longer in business but she has some freebies on her site Papercraft Romance.)

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge – lift Category – used Doodlebug like my friend Cardiographer does!
