Maple and Birch

Today I have a card that is really simple, yet beautiful.

Here's another view that shows the layers of different textures - a grid that is dry embossed, handmade paper, and inlaid maple and birch real wood paper.

Thanks for visiting today.

A Beary Special Birthday

We recently celebrated my daughter's birthday - this card was for her.  When she was young, she loved panda bears.  I just couldn't resist - this patterned paper was so darn cute.

Thanks for visiting today!

Bright and Sunny Birthday Greetings

Today's card is so bright and sunny.

Isn't that smiling pineapple so cute - that's a die from Paper Smooches.  The "happy" background stamp is from Impression Obsessions.

Hope you're having a good day!

You Mean the World to Me

Today I have a card to share that I made for each of my kids, because they do mean the world to me.

I don't think the picture does this card justice.  I didn't have time to get out my light tent, so I just snapped a pic with my phone.  I really do love the way this card came out, and used products from Papertrey Ink (die), Lawn Fawn (the sentiment stamp), and Neat and Tangled (origami map stamp).

Have a great day!

Tropical Pugs

I've been very busy creating lots and lots of new cards for Pug Rescue of Florida's fundraiser, Pugsgiving.  I wanted to create some "tropical pug" themed cards.  Here's a few pics of them.

That pug with the sunglasses - it just makes me smile.
Have a great day!

Inlaid Butterflies

Today's card is simple, but I really liked the way it came out.  And it's already in the mail to a good friend's mother and should brighten her day.

I simply cut the die (DoCrafts Wildflower Beauty) four times, first out of black cardstock then out of three different color paper from an old 6x6 Recollections paper pad (Michaels).  I just inlaid all the colored pieces back into the black frame.  It did take a bit of time, but was easy to do.  I then layered it over a stitched rectangle and vellum and onto a grey card.
