Get Well

Everyone has been sick in my family, so I thought I would create a Get Well card.  This one is 5x5.  I also used some of the DSP that you can get for FREE in the Sale-a-bration flyer.

I really like the Summer Starfruit and Rich Razzleberry together. The white butterfly I use the Creped Filter paper that can be found in the Spring Occasion catalog.  I liked these colors together so much that I created Thank you cards using this design too.

A Cup of Thanks

I really like this stamp set, Tea Shoppe.  There so many options to create with it.  This is a card that we made in one of my classed back in January.

It's hard to tell but I sponged some Crumb Cake on the Very Vanilla to give a vintage look.  I also cut one of the little flowers out put it on with a dimensional to make it pop.  The Calypso Coral is going to be a color I think we will see alot of for Spring.

Spring Banner

I had a team meeting a couple a weeks ago, and we always do swaps.  Swap theme for this meeting was Spring or Easter.  I choose Spring and made this cute banner.  The banner it's self is 4x6.  I mostly used punches to decorated it.

 You can make this for any Holiday or season.

The first project I have for you is a card that we made in one of my January classes, but I thought it fit for today's snowy day.
