Sunflower



I know I used this fun fold recently so I switched it up on this card and put the flap
on the opposite side for variety. Sunflower and leaves are from Gina K's A Year
of Flowers and colored with Copic markers. Sunflower saying is a stamp from
Paddler's Pack that I know I have had at least 10 - 15 years. Die cuts: Spellbinders
 Lg Circles and Big Scallop Circles.I added Washi tape  and gems for some contrast. 
This card is a thank you for a friend.
A few fun challenges:

Happy Fathers Day

Lighthouse from Our Daily Bread 
 
 
 

 A few Fathers Day cards.  The first one is for my husband, the second for my dad,
and the tigers for my youngest son. The lighthouses are a technique I saw
on Gina K. and I was quite happy with how they turned out. Enjoyed using
my stitched die's.  Just noticed the anchor fell off my dads card, will need
to add a new one. Enjoy your Fathers Day!

Stamping with the gang

Had a fun day of stamping with the gang a couple weeks ago and we each brought
a project cut and ready to go to share with the others. I had to share the
fabulous creations we made with you!  They are in alphabetical order, no
favoritism.  Mine is last and has been on my blog previously.

Challenge:

I had several occasions to make cards for this weekend, great reason to
spend time in my crafting studio!  The graduation and birthday cards are
for great nieces and the shower card is for a co-worker to give her niece,
the flowers were already embroidered on the card and have a special
meaning to them so I coordinated with those.

Fluttering By

Spent some time in my craft room this morning to combine a few fun challenges.  I
pulled out a Hampton Arts butterfly set, Recollections paper, and Purple Passions.  Also
used my Quick Cutz Antique Doily die.  This will go in the mail next week to my
Chemo buddy.  Hope you are enjoying the holiday.
