Still In the Birthday Mode

 
 
I'm slowly but surely completing July birthday cards!  This one is going to a sweet friend a few years older than me.  She is so smart and wise...anyone would admire her and she is quite the beautiful 70 year old southern lady!  Enjoy your day!

Birthday's Abound!

  I've been busy creating birthday cards for friends here lately and I'm sharing yet another one with you today.  It's for a special person at church and I do hope she likes it.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!  Enjoy your day!

Another Birthday Card!

I have a friend that will soon be celebrating a birthday so set out to make her a card...she does enjoy handmade cards!  I've been on a kick for several days now using some of the items I have had for a long time that I lovingly call my "scraps".  This one turned out pretty neat and I know it will be cherished by a dear friend.  Hope this is a good day for you - enjoy your day!

Having Fun on Our Anniversary!

The title sounds a little off, but today is our anniversary and later on we will be out and about having fun, but this morning I've had fun playing in my ARTspot!  I was up before hubby and spent time creating away with basically scraps again...at least things I had thought about using before and had already cut out, stamped or just never completed ART with.  I'm trying hard to use some of those things before purchasing more-as you know, that is hard to do!  Every now and then I pull down this large container and create from it.  We are off on a road trip today - just going and enjoying being together!  Enjoy your day!

Celebrating My SISTER!

My favorite sister (I only have one!) is celebrating her birthday this month and I'm sharing the card I created for her and put in the mail today.  She will be -- years old on July 7.  For those that know me well, she is three and a half years older than me but my best buddy.  My husband and I will be flying out to visit with her in August if all goes well.  I can't wait to see her again.  She came while I was in the hospital but I was so sick that we didn't have much of a visit...so looking forward to August!
Happy Birthday, dear SISTER of mine!

Orange Delight!

I was inspired to create a card like this way back ago but didn't have the leaves to make it happen.  I finally purchased the Sizzix die of leaves and then could not find my embossing folder.  Yes, I have plenty of embossing folders but don't use them a lot because I prefer 5x7 cards and only have a couple folders of that size.  By happenchance I saw this folder sticking out from behind a table where it had fell and I didn't know it.  The card I saw had 2 pink flowers and no border but it had swirly leaves that I loved and pearls in the flowers.  But this is my version and I'm happy with it.  Mine started off in pinks too but ended up being an orange delight!

How FUN Is This!


 
  I haven't had the opportunity to have this much fun in a while and I just loved taking part in a mini album swap with the group from Our Creative Table.  I chose to create a tag booklet as I make these often for fun and Random Acts of Kindness.  I love the SEA and this goes right along with me wishing I were at the beach cottage right now.  The front cover is actually the Seahorse and I used a Tim die to cut it out.  The back page is the bottom right tag with the saying and flip flops...yes, I even have a flip flop stamp!  I hope for sure that my friend, Betty, enjoys my/her tag booklet.  It was sent to her one day and she received it the next...wonderful!
