I like this stamp for its size and versatility. I think it works well with the Label Collection die. I used the die to cut the front of the card as well as making the top of the base card. Add a liitle bling and it is all set.

Thankful for You

Today I have another gingham card for you. The center of the yellow bow and the blue disc are  studded with a Candy Dot. These dots are among my favorite things from the 2013-14 catalog because they add that little extra touch. I haven't used them with the brads because there is enough "stickiness" on the back to just place them on the card.

Gingham is so versatile

There is such a freshness to gingham and it blends well with so many other backgrounds.
I had a good time making these cards and will be using the Bow Die from the Holiday catalog on many a project.
Thanks for stopping by.

Cheery card

 I'm enjoying some of the new items from the upcoming holiday catalog. The envelope liner and the chevron punch add some nice touches to my creations.  
I think it is fun to put a number of items on my workspace and then design a card around what I have chosen. That's what I did for this card and I like the results. 
Hope you enjoy.

Time to Celebrate

I continue to enjoy the new In Colors for my card making.

Many of my friends are in Salt Lake City for the 25th Anniversary celebration and Stampin' Up! convention. I know they will all have a wonderful time and bring back lots and lots of ideas to share with those of us who didn't go. Celebrate well!

There's You

Today I have a quick card for you using the Card Base Pop N Cut die for my base card. Have to like those little birds, too.

You Make Me Smile

This is a good all occasion card. I like the sentiment "You Make Me Smile" because I think it can brighten any ones day.

Butterfly Bookmark/Tag

I made this bookmark/tag for a friend who is recovering from knee replacement surgery. She is going to have plenty of time for reading as she heals.

Crisp Cantaloupe abounds

I am finding that Crisp Cantaloupe ink is very versatile. It blends so well with many of the existing SU! colors and has become one of my go to colors. I would be happy if SU! added this one to their regular line in the future.

I'm back

I was going to post all my cards on Pinterest until I noticed people were still stopping by this site, so I am going to resume posting here as well as Pinterest.

Here are a few of my latest creations. Thanks for looking.
