Finally a post!!

I was in need of some birthday cards. I was looking ahead to next month and realized that I have a few birthdays coming up.

I just ordered some goodies from Emma at My Creative Time. I am so excited to use them. Hopefully I will get a post or two using her goodies. Have a Happy Halloween!

Throwback Thursday with Emma

I chose to use "Just Because Cards" to create a card for Emma's Throwback Thursday. I used the "Distressed Stripes" embossing folder on the trunk of the tree and the "Swiss Dots" embossing folder on the blue backgroud of the card. The sentiment is from Emma's stamp set called "Turn That Frown Upside Down." I love the way the card turned out.

Thank You to Sheila at She's A Sassy Lady

Thank you Sheila for the blog award. You are very kind. I love to follow your blog to see what you are creating next.

Seeing Double

I created these cards for the double challenge by Sheila at She's A Sassy Lady. I love using my Gypsy and Sheila's challenges always motivate me to get busy creating.

Father's Day Card

My youngest daughter wanted to make a card for her dad. When my children ask their dad what they could get for him for special occasions like his birthday or Father's Day (he is not a materialist guy at all), he always tells them in a joking way "World Peace." So my youngest daughter wanted me to use my Cricut to cut out a "world." I do not own a cart with a "world" cut. So I printed a picture off of the internet. I think that it turned out super cute. My daughter was thrilled with the outcome of the card. I am excited to see my husband's reaction to his Father's Day card.

The card below is an anniversary card that I created using the Stampin' Up "Love Bug" set.

More Cards to Share!

The first card I that I created is for my daughter's fourth grade teacher for Teacher Appreciation Day. I was inspired by Emma at She created a card using her stamp line. I love her stamps.

The second card is a Mother's Day card that I created for my Mom. I used the Walk in My Garden cart to create the vase and flowers.

The third card I created for my neice who is a nurse. Nurse appreciation day is coming up soon and this is what I created for her. I used the Everyday Paper Dolls cart to create the nurse. Most of the papers used were from Papertrey ink.

Easter Cards

I have created a few Easter cards to send to family and friends. I have a more to make before Easter Sunday arrives. After mid-night tonight we are expected to get 6 to 10 inches of snow, yes, I said snow. It really hasn't felt like spring at all. I guess it is a good time to create some more cards.
