Skinny Cup

This was a quick card I did this afternoon to send to my patient- from Chemo Angels -I know she likes flavored coffees so while shopping in Kimmswick MO. last week I picked up a few individual pkgs of the flavored coffee to send to her. Thought this cup was perfect to go with the coffees. I so enjoy Chemo Angels - you commit to send at least 1 card a week which is no problem for me. I love being a part of someones journey with a horrible disease. I feel like hopefully my card and letter will cheer them up at least for a little while. This set Skinny Birds has so many options to use - I know it will be well loved.

Another Birthday

I just had to post this birthday card I made for a friend that I went to high school with (many many many years ago!!), The stamp is by Sparkle and Sprinkle but all other product is from TAC, cardstock, prism pencils, glitter, and embellishments. I hope my friend enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making this fun birthday card.

July Blog Hop Card Stash

We are having a blog hop over at Paper Wings so click on the other angels names and see their creations for this blog hop, this will get ideas for you to replenish you card stash. Just a note re my creations: the "beach" under beachy keen is sandpaper - and I know I am guilty of forgetting some of my fav tools such as the crimper which I used in the crab card. All stamps by The Angel Company.

Note Card

This is a little 3 x 3 note card which is so easy peasy to make. I made several of these for my extra trade at seminar this past June. Kraft card stock for the base, swirls stamped in Burnt umber palette ink, then I ran our red cs through the cuttle bug, punched Extra Jumbo flower and 2 Super Jumbo flowers, layered then on top of each other, curled up the edges a bit, button with red scrappers floss (love that stuff) for the center, 2 green leaves punched from edges of a 1 1/2 in. circle scored down the middle for the vein and you have a cute card. I stamped for you dear friend from Dear Friend by mabelle, in the corner. Why don't you try a cute little note card yourself???

Altered Cigar Box

Here are 2 pictures of my "altered cigar box" that I gave away at Seminar 2009 as my Prop Swap at Club Med. Rita Kegg received my swap and I was sooo happy. (will post a picture of her with the box soon). I had so much fun putting this together using about 85% TAC product, I did use 3 small charms, a spray bottle lid for the trash can and my DH designed the table and stool. I used Miss moxie as my theme paper to cover the inside and out and as some of the embellishments. I have promised myself that I will make myself one soon. The smoke shop here in town is saving me a couple of cigar boxes so as soon as I get them I can start on mine.
