Napkin thank you

I had knee replacement surgery 3 weeks ago and I needed
some thank you cards for all the people that did kind
deeds for me.

Today was the first day since my surgery that I felt like coming to the craft room.
I had these napkins Mod Podged for a while and never used them,
I decided to get them out and make a card with them.

Then I remembered I got a new die and the light bulb went off.
This is the final project.
Sorry you cannot see the glittery napkin in this photo.

Hopefully tomorrow I can get to my craft room 
and make a few more.
I have a lot of napkins to use up!!!

Big Rose

I got this new rose stamp and background die
in the mail this week.  I thought I would play with them,
I am not sure I like the die with the rose as the card is a bit busy.
I love the rose though and will be making many cards with it.

Sucker tags

My girlfriend asked me to make her
some tags to put on suckers 
for a baby shower.
This is what I came up with.
She will tie a pretty ribbon on them
and finish them up.
I like them!

Zentangle flowers

I took some flowers and stamped them 
and then did some zentangle doodles on them.
I thought they turned out kind of neat.

Here they are on the finished cards.  
I like how I popped a little red in the middle to 
bring it all together.

Here is a close up if you want to see the scribbles better.
Something different than just coloring.

Merry and Bright


I decided to start working on some Christmas cards
because if I have surgery on my knee
I won't be able to use the steps to go
to my craft room for about 6 weeks.
This is from the Gina K. Merry and Bright Kit.
I only made 4 of these as I ran out of silver embossing powder.
I tried it with gold embossing powder and I just did not like it as well.
It makes a stunning card without embellishments or anything
and will mail well since it is flat!

Poinsettia Christmas Card

I started making Christmas cards and this is one I came up with.
It is using products from my Gina K. Merry and Bright kit.
I love how it turned out.
It took me the whole darn morning
but I got 8 of these cards made.
