Mark & Lucy's Wedding card

I am so glad that I'm able to finally post a picture of my brother and new sister-in-laws wedding card.  They got married last Friday night.  The wedding was beautiful and the Bride and Groom looked fabulous.  You could see all over their faces exactly how much in love they really wereThe brides maids were a deep chocolate brown and the ushers had hot pink vests on.  I know it sounds a little funny thinking of the guys in pink but it was all picture perfect.  On their card, I used the Tie the knot cricut cartridge and I cut the image of the bride and groom out of silver shimmer paper by reflections.  I cut the window from another cartridge but I can't remember which one that was.  I embossed the back layer with my cuttlebug to add some dimension.  I also popped up the bride and groom with some SU dimensional.  My layers were in brown and pink and the sentiment was by paper trey ink's Mega mixed message.  Hope you like it!

Monogramed Birthday cards

Last weekend my daughter Alex had so many Birthday parties to go to.  One was a slumber party for her twin friends Hannah & Sarrah.  It's sometimes hard to get some inspiration for a card but to have to create 2 at a time seems impossible.  I decided to create some monogrammed cards but with the same layout.  I create these top note  die cuts with my sure cuts alot and embossed them with the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder. I cut the letters out with the storybook cartridge of my cricut expression.  I used a fiskars border punch but I can't seem to remember what the name of it is.  I think it's one of the newer designs though.  The sentiment is from SU's newest stamp set watercolor trio.  It just became available on May 1st and it was stamped with SU's night of navy ink.  I know I don't usually list all my materials but if anyone ever wonders what I use, just let me know.  Have a great day!

Father's day cards

Friday's cardclub was great!  We made these adorable father's day cards that were so easy to make.  Any kind of striped or plaid paper would make a great shirt card. 
I also had my nephew Luke's 2nd Birthday party yesterday.  The theme was dinosaurs so I incorporated a dinosaur into his card.  I did a faux silk technique that my friend Jen just told me about over at her blog ICREATE.  It gave it a nice aged effect.  My sister Patty loved it.

Another item for sale

I was doing some cleaning in my scraproom today.  I'm always moving things around and reorganizing so I decided to store my spools of ribbon in a different way, which brings me to my item for sale.  It's a ribbon organizer made of wood that sits on a lazy susan with 3 different height dowels measuring 9 1/8, 11 1/4 & 13 1/8.  I had 28 spools of ribbon on it and still had plenty of room for more.  If you are interested, I'm selling it for $10.  If you need shipping costs, just click contact me.
