Cabin with chair

Cabin with chair

I had an order for a lady that works in NY but has a cabin she lives in when not working. She loves to go to cabin and enjoy nature. So when I found The Great Outdoors Kit (or cheaper version is Camping Kids) at Imagine That Digi Shop I knew it would be perfect. I added an extra tree to my scene. Pop dotted the fire wood stack, chair and the knobs sticking out on the actually cabin to make it feel more real. I still haven’t quiet figured out how to make my grass longer than the die without leaving that little mark…if you know the secret please do tell. The lady loved it and has it displayed on her work desk to reminder her of “cabin life”.

Music Wedding

I had an order for a wedding with blues and grey tones and music themed…she is an opera singer. I didn’t get to April’s Card Sketch #2 – originally a Paper Craft Crew #235 – last month and when I looked at it I thought it would work for a wedding card. This is what I came up with and was very pleased with it.

Cardstock: Bazzill (Jacaranda, cinder, smokey, bazzill white)
Accents/Tools: Twine from Target, heart rhinestones, The Paper Studio Music embossing folder, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, cricut, Basic George Cricut Cartridge

Music Birthday

So I needed a music themed birthday for a 96 year old (I made her one last year too). Since I had just made the music wedding card I thought maybe I could put flowers instead of hearts and this is how it turned out. The Recollections flowers were a RAK from TexasMomOf4 several years ago.

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:
