Here are a couple of birthday cards that I made for some special people in my office. This first one was from someone turning 60. I know that the picture isn't great, but I really need to start taking pictures with my camera rather than my phone. The stamp is from I Break For Stamps and is one of there Saggy Ladies. I really love these stamps. The sentiment I found online and it says "You're not 60 - You're 18 with 42 years experience!" The black paper is Bazzill cardstock and the white is just some scrap paper that I found in my stash that says happy birthday on it.

Here is another birthday card that I made for another co-worker. I used the fabulous donut set from Skipping Stones Designs and the paper is all from my scrap stash. Eventually I will run out of that I think. I added a little ribbon, glossed the icing on the donut and stickled the candles.

The last card that I made for our volunteer in the office was for his 80th birthday. The stamp is another Saggy Lady from I Break For Stamps and she is my favorite stamp that they have. She is great for everything. The cardstock is Bazzill and I am starting to think that every card that I make I use this cardstock. I really don't know where I got the paper from, but I thought that it would be great with this card. I colored her with colored pencils and then stickled her with gold and purple. The inside says "Sorry I couldn't find you 80 dancing girls, but I did find you a 80-year-old dancing girl! Happy Birthday"

Here's some Ribbon Flower that I played with. I have never made these before, but I found a swap on SCS that had a tutorial that looked like I might be able to do it. :) So here is my take on a birthday card and a Get Well Card with the flowers. The ribbon is just some that I picked up at WalMart and the button is something I found in my stash. The stamp is from Perfectly Clear Stamps and I colored the balloons with my colored pencils and added some glitter for pop. The cardstock is from my scrap stash so I am sorry, but don't remember who it's by. My second card the ribbon is from some that I found in my ribbon stash and placed a pink gem on it to bring out the pink in the flower. The stamp is from Skipping Stones Stamps and I love this stamp! Paper is from my scrap stash (I really need to clean that out lol). Hope you enjoy my take on ribbon flowers.

So it's been awhile since I posted any of my creations but thought I would share a few booksmarks that I finished for some swaps. The first one I stamped with Artful Inkables Twilight set the background and the Books with Bite are stamps. Finished the teeth with some reg glitter glue. My second bookmark is a digi stamp of the wonderfully mad Mad Hatter in Alice In Wonderland. I typed the Time for Tea and added that. I tried something different with stapling the ribbon to the top and I like how that turned out. Both sets of paper are from Bazzil Cardstock.

So it has been a very long time since I posted anything on my blog and I have made several cards since then...this first card I made for one of my friends daughter's birthday's and I also used it over at the Sweet Pea Stamp Blog for there June challenge. There challenge this month was a free for all using any of the Sweet Pea Stamps and verses.

My second card I did for a Goth Swap on SCS a couple of months ago...the stamp a digi of Ebony from The Greeting Farm. I saw this card in a magazine and wanted to try it out and impressed with how easy it was to make it. I totally love my skull and cross bones that I made with my cricut too!

Here is another card that I made for a spot in that Goth Swap on SCS also..this stamp is from Queen Kat and the paper is just some that I had in my scrap pile.

So I received the Margarita Birthday Stamps from Skipping Stones Designs and I totally love them! I found out they are doing a Blog Hop today and here is a card that I made with one of there wonderful sketches that they have one there site. The red paper is from Brazzil, the green is from the DCWV Indian Summer Stack and the other paper is just some that I had in my paper stash. I cut the circles with my new cricut and added some green bling and some glossy accent to the wine... I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
