Collection of Cards

I don't have a specific card to share today but I finally
pulled out that pile of colored images that have
accumulated over the years and in about an hour
had this collection of cards put together!  I had used
my last card I had in my collection for chemo angels
to send when an e-mail would go out for a cancer patient
needing a shower of cards to booster there spirits.
I am anxious to do this with my other ones, it was a
nice feeling having this pile of cards in the time I
often spend on one card.

Thank you

We went to a winery and enjoyed the band, food, and  fireworks on July 3
with our niece, her fiancé and another couple. Our dear niece and finace
treated us so I wanted to make a special thank you card for them. I had been
wanting to play with my new Kaleidacolor Vineyard ink pad, and use
my Amuse doilies , so I pulled those out. Stamps by Inkadinkadoo and
Denami, papers from my stash to match the inks. Die cut  Labels 4.
 I like to pick a sketch or challenge when I have a special occasion card
to make, it challenges me to more out of the box.  Hope you had
a wonderful holiday!

Fourth of July

I mailed a couple of Fourth of July cards this morning.
 I did the starburst technique and ran the papers through the
cuddle bug for some dimension.
A few fun challenges:

Partial Die Cutting

I had been wanting to try partial die cutting, so here is my first card, I used
a Sizzix hero Arts set and was happy with the results.  If you google "partial
die cutting" directions are everywhere.  I have a new "Chemo Buddy" so
this card will go in the mail to her in the morning. Take care all.
