Caring Thoughts/Snippets

 Some snippet  cards:

I was running low on cards for special requests for cancer patients having
an especially rough time (through Chemo Angels)  and I found this set
of colored note cards and decided they would be bright and cheery for
this purpose.  
I pulled out 6x6 paper pads that are almost used up
and grabbed snippets from them to match.  I then got scraps from
my shimmer zip lock bag and die cut the ivory and white lacy pieces
with a die from Spellbinders and stamped it with a sentiment from
the same set.  I then went through my white and scraps, and then my
colored scraps to finish the remaining cards.  
Every January I try to use up more from my room.  I really need to clear out 
and donate quite a bit. I do have one large pile of papers to donate 
and hopefully more to follow.

Happy Birthday

 My husbands birthday card. Nothing super fancy.  We both love the
water, boating and all things nautical so I pulled out a new paper pack
 Sea & Shore by Hackney & Co.  I cut this MFT Happy Birthday die
6 times and glued them together putting an acetate circle below the top
layer.  Silver and iridescent sequins inside.  I had never made him a
shaker card before.  He was very happy with his card and the day
we spent celebrating.

Thanks for stopping by.

Triple Point Fold Card

I had so much fun making this Triple Point Fold card, it looks complicated, yet
is quite easy following the instructions at the Butterfly Challenge.  I enjoy
fun folds and this one did not disappoint.

  This is the third of my new stamp sets from MFT, You Cake My Day. I followed
a sketch using the saran wrap for my circles cut with Nesting Pinking Circles, 
did some ink splattering on the background, images colored with Copics and 
then highlighted with Faber-Castell pencils. Sentiment is popped up for 
dimension. Another childrens birthday card for the box.  Now on to
Valentines cards!

Happy Birthday


I bought several cute My Favorite Things stamp sets recently.  Above is 

Celebrating You.  This weekend I stamped

up several of each stamp set and had fun coloring them and today 

started putting them together.  I always have trouble making cards

for the little ones in my life so I thought I would get an early

start on them this year. If you look close you can tell I used

MFT's Splatter Background on the base of my card, using Versa Mark

ink.  Images colored with Copic markers.
