June 28, 2014 "Charlie Chan" birthday

AMuse chavron and mini dot CS, asst. cs for greys, stamp by Tim Holtz and the Happy Birthday I have had for YEARS...

Another ombre frame card from Technique Junkies that I made.  I have had this stamp set for quite some time as I just like the unique charm - it reminds me of Charlie Chan and this worked beautifully for a masculine birthday card I need last week.  This technique is so fun - and you get a negative frame which I will be using soon in another project.  Hope our friend Jim likes his card.

June 25, 2014 Cowgirl Boots

Stamp by former TAC company, colored with prisma color pencils and OMS, photo turns and brads from my stash 

This card is for a "special" little chemo girl who just got new cowgirl boots in a beautiful shade of blue and her Mom posted a picture of her with her boots on and she looked just too darn cute.  I made her this card and sent her some pictures of horses, boots, and a cowgirl hat that I found online.  Hoping she enjoys coloring them and maybe putting them in her room.  Challenges:

June 21, 2014 Lady Bug Kisses

Stamps by Great Impressions, flowers by Prima, DP by Sizzix (free download), little lady bug by Jolee colored with copic markers.

This little lady bug was so much fun to color and I used a new technique from Technique Junkie called Ombre Frames.  I do a monthly card swap using one of the TJ techniques and this month my swap partner lives in the Netherlands - what fun.  Love the saying on this card - the entire saying was Butterfly Kisses and Ladybug Hugs but I just inked up the Ladybug Hugs.  I had the little ladybug blings in my stash and it was just what this card needed.  Hope my partner enjoys her card this month.  Challenges:

June 10, 2014 New Bike

CS AMuse Studio, dies AMuse Studio, Stamp Hero Arts, bling from my stash

My little chemo buddy was given a new pink bike and her mom posted pictures on FB of her riding it so my card to her this week was of a pink bike.  I had saved the directions for a "tent topper" card and love how it turned our, especially the polka dot grass.  Easy peasy to make and I'm thinkin it will put a smile on someones face this week.

June 4, 2014 Thank You

Digi image from Doodle Pantry, distress ink Tim Holtz, CS DCWV

This card was just a snap to make (cased directly from Doodle Pantry), but it was perfect for a thank you note for wonderful friends Terry and Jay.  My hubby had shoulder replacement surgery last week (successful) and Terry (Ridgeback Rescue Coordinator for MO./Il.) offered to take CoCo and Bella while Mr. Wayne was in the hospital.  They opened their home to us for the night before surgery and then kept our girls for 3 days.  Ok sounds like great friends right??? the rest of the story is...they have two Ridgebacks of their own and they were sitting for her sister who also has a Ridgeback so total 5 - note 5 BIG dogs!!!  I made up the card and took them a little giftie bag for keeping our girls.  Thanks was simply not enough.

This is just a fun quick and simple card using balloon dies, some fun colorful cs from AMuse and the new Hello die - which I love.  I think this would bring a smile a cheer to anyone of just about any age.  Plus it was one of those easy peasy card to put together.
