For My Mommy's Birthday...

I made this card for my mom's birthday.  She LOVED it!  I love this retired DSP and I have a few scraps left and just keep using them!  
The base is Baja Breeze and I used two of the Vanilla Ribbon Roses (retired), the ink is Not Quite Navy.  I popped up the Happy Birthday, Scalloped Oval with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Birthday Card in Brown

I made the background patterned paper for a challenge over at Just a Spark to make your own background paper:)  I used the stamp from Bliss(ret SAB set) and stamped it in Early Espresso ink on the Soft Suede CS.  I layerd this on Early Espresso and put on a card base of Soft Suede.  I added a layer of Early Espresso 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon and then the Happy Birthday sentiment from the retired Well Scripted set.  I punched using the Scalloped oval punch and added to card front with dimensionals:)  I fell in love with the distressed edging in the SU catty and have tried my hand with it...thinkin I likey:)

A Delicate Thank You

I started with a blank sheet of Pool Party CS and added some images from Elements of Style Stamp Set in Pool Party Ink.  I then punched the bottom edge of the card with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and added a Modern Label Punch with the Thank You sentiment and some cute little pearls:)
This card meets a challenge from Just A Spark to make your own patterned paper:)

Fall Thank You Notes

 I made these small Thank Yous today aren't they cute??  I started with a base of More Mustard, added a layer of Pool Party then a layer of Spice Cake DSP, scored a small strip of Early Espresso, then added a little strip of Twill Tape and then stamped the sentiment from Hodgepodge Happiness(ret) and punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch and added with Dimensionals.

I used the scraps from the Spice Cake DSP from the other card and made this cute little quilt-like Thank You note for a dear friend:)

Blessed Marriage:) 16 years!!!

I made this for my sweetheart for our anniversary, 16 years of blessed marriage this Friday!  I'm not sure its really complete yet tho....seems to be missing something but figured I'd share anyhow:)

Here is an up close look at the Definition:
and the tag...
I used Cherry Cobbler and Riding Hood Red for the CS base and layer inked with Early Espresso.  I used patterned paper from my stash from a "romantic" collection and the stamp is from SU stamped with Stayz-On Jet Black ink:)
