For a Special Patient

This is one of the cards I made at the retreat. It's for my Chemo Angels "buddy," who also happens to be a cardmaker like myself. I hope she likes it. Tree stamp is from Close to My heart. Owl and words are from a Clear Dollar Stamps set. Ribbon is from Stampin' Up.

I Met Heidi Swapp!

This past weekend I attended a papercrafting retreat locally. Heidi Swapp came to teach classes and I was lucky enough to take 2 of them. She is such an inspirational speaker and we all enjoyed hearing what she had to say, learning from her, and getting to know her. Thanks, Heidi! And thanks, Jeanie, for making it all happen!

Stamps of Life September Release

I needed a quick card today and my September Stamps of Life set was nearby, so this is what I came up with. Quick and simple. I used Pallette Noir ink and Copic markers. Card base is Prism cardstock that came with the September Stamps of Life set. You can't see it in the scan, but I also colored parts of the flowers with a clear Atoyou Spica glitter pen. The ribbon is Offray and probably came from Joann Fabrics.

Megan's Baby Shower

Kelli's new sister-in-law, Megan, - who was in the wedding a month ago at 8 months pregnant - had her baby (Hannah Jayne) on Kelli's brother Tyler's 20th birthday, September 26. Today is the baby shower and this is the card I made to go with our gift. My scanner really washes out colors, so it's much brighter than it may appear on your monitors. The chenille ric-rac is actually a light tourquoise color.
*Stamp is from a cheapie set from Michael's (and stamps that way!), ribbons are Making Memories, found at Michael's. Paper (which is embossed) was also found at Michael's. Kraft cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.
