Cardinal Wreath

So I went looking for an image for my friend that loves cardinals. I found a watercolor digital set called Songbirds @ SLS Lines. I made two different mother’s day cards using images from the set. I’m also changing out the saying and sending one to my friend to let her know I’m thinking of her…now to find time to make it!!
I used sketch #1 on the May Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com (original sketch Atlantic Sketch Challenge #207).
It is also for May Inspirational Card Challenge – theme category – Mother’s Day/Feminine.

Bluebird

I have a lady whose mother loves birds and bluebird just happens to be one of her favorites! So she requested this image for her Mother’s Day card. It is one of the images in the digital stamp set called Songbirds Watercolor Clipart by SLSLines. I’m also going to make it into a Birthday Card for another lady…just by changing the sentiment!

Nurse Birthday

A lady needed a birthday card for her friend who is a retired nurse. She is still active in the nursing community so she wanted a nursing theme. I used a free image from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps – Get Well Mousie. I just got permission from Mary Ellen to remove the “get well” from the balloon and then my husband put “happy birthday” in there instead. Of course I used the Happy Birthday embossing folder…best and most used folder EVER!!

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:

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!

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Recipe Card from Deedee’s Digis (new site with some freebies http://papercraftromance.com/
Cardstock: Bazzill (Bubblegum,)
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug (Sugar Shoppe), (Birthday Girl on the pink dotted balloon)
Accents/Tools: Paper Smooches Balloon dies, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, black string

I was struggling so I went to My Princess-peaces’ gallery as she is the “lift” category of the March Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. I lifted this card.

Since there is more bling on this card then I usually use I’m going to enter this one into the Product category – bling, shine, etc. I lifted another one of her cards that I will enter into that category.
