Birthday Card

My boss wants to give birthday cards to all of the employees at work. Four of us from work, the boss's wife and Denise have been getting together once a month to make birthday cards. Here is my latest creation. I used SEI Poppy paper and added a ribbon, 2 circles with a sentiment and a round window charm to make the sentiment pop!

Thank you card

My friend Denise at Paper Ponderings gave me stamp pads of the SU in colors and reinkers (or rinkers as I call them). Here is the thank you card I made her.

I used soft suede cardstock and used my Cuttlebug folder Birds and Swirls on a piece of blue bayou. I inked the debossed side with soft suede. I used the Sizzix die birds and branches to cut out the branch and the bird stamp is an impress rubberstamp. I liked how this one turned out and it totally looks like something Denise would make! Thanks for the inspiration D!

More news and Happy Fall Ya'll

Happy Fall y'all! I am trying to catch up my posts! It seems like summer has flown by and lots of stuff going on! I will be having cataract surgery on Sept. 21. So if you are the praying kind, I appreciate all the prayers I can get! Thank you in advance!

I went to an orthopedic surgeon because I was diagnosed with a cyst on my tendon in my hand, which can be annoying when you are trying to create cards (or do anything!). I found out that I have "trigger finger" so I had a shot of steroids into my hand. I have been waiting for my hand to get buff LOL but the shot did help a lot.

This week I will be going to Eugene to attend a conference for work. I am on a committee that I am told "I will work my butt off!" Hoping that even a little true, 'cause I can use it!

My First ATC

I made my first ATC for a contest. I really liked how it turned out even though I did not win the contest! I found the SU grape set at a garage sale right before I picked up the blank ATC for the contest!
Sorry about the blurriness! I bought a light box but don't have it set up yet!
