gumball cards

I just loved making these cute little cards. They are so colorful. Only thing is that there is not much room to write a message. It's good for a quick message to someone.

I CASE'd (copied) this card from this card maker Scrap Bitz. Her cards are so pretty. Check out her etsy shop, too.

PTI floral card and Basic Grey candy

I like the color combination of this card. I used the berry sorbet ink, chocolate, landscape green, all from Papertrey Ink. Cardstock is white, berry sorbet, chocolate from Papertrey Ink. Stamp set is from Floral Frenzy from Papertrey Ink.

I just want to let anyone who is interested know that the Basic Grey challenge blog has a new look, and they are giving away some blog candy. I love Basic Grey's paper collections. I just saw a sneak peak at their Christmas and Holiday paper..I'll be getting some of that.

Just loved it card

I am trying to use different patterns of paper together on one card. This one turned out colorful. It looks better in real life! I stayed up too late working on some cards...I sure hope I get quicker.

Howdy Partner Baby Boy

Thanks to Girlville's urging and Page and 30 Something and Punchy and Shopper Girl and Magnolia Sun, I now have an etsy shop. I will post the link whenever I figure out how to do that! Girlville came up with the name of the shop. Shopper Girl is fixing it up so that it looks pretty. It's not done yet, so I'll post as soon as it is.

Here is a card that I made for a lady at the husband's workplace.

I like to decorate the inside of the card sometimes...not all the time.

CPS 125 No Tricks Just Treats

This week's CPS 125 challenge is brought to us by JustRite Stamps. I have several of their stamp sets. They are so wonderful to make party favors or wedding favors. This challenge was fun to put the Halloween stamp No Tricks Just Treats to work.

Aunt Sue colored this image and I put the card together.

It's been a while since I posted! I want to give a hello shout-out to my friend in Australia Cards that Care. She is updating more often. She has had a tough week with the death of a good friend. I'm thinking of you, D.

I also won some blog candy from Mama Dini's Stamperia. I love that blog name. She and her husband do mission work in Indonesia.

On the Halloween card:

Stamps: JustRite special occasions.

Paper: Cardstock from Michael's. I don't remember the source. Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio.

Ribbon: Michael's
Ink: Memories dye ink

Copic markers, prescored card from California Paper Goods. 5.25 by 5.25 size. Black dots from Joann's Fabrics.
