Congratulations Butterfly

How are you, friends? My family and I battling a nasty cold with high temps and severe head aches. The bummer thing is it's a holiday today and tomorrow here. We had planned something fun, but it looks like we'll be spending it in bed instead. My Advil is working as I type this, but it won't be for long. So, I"ll make this short and sweet :).

I have a simple card for you today that uses some old products that I still love.The sentiment is from the retired Layers of Color's Sentimental Banners. The papers are Echo Park.
I used various Spellbinders dies for the butterfly, banner and scalloped border. the flower center is Maya Road.
Have a great day and stay healthy!

Birthday Boy Plane

I shared a girly birthay card using Vintage Rides earlier. Now I have the boy version. If you notice, I'm using the negative part of the clouds and scallop border die cuts from that girl card on this. I love that I can do that :).
I did this late at night, so excuse the bad shading with my Copics :). The happy papers are again October Afternoon. This set is perfect for both boy and girl cards. It seems I'm always in need of masculine cards as I don't make them often. But that will change from now with Vintage Rides stamp set.
Have a great day!

I am here for you

I am still having fun with my October Afternoon Sidewalks papers. I love the happy and bright colors. The patterns are great for kids cards and even feminine, shabby ones like my card for today.

I used Karen Baker's new Inspired by Audrey set for this one. I would have shared this for The Craft's Meow's previews last week, had the stamps arrived in time. But anyhoo, though only a little late to the party, now I get to play with them  :).
I stamped the frame twice to highlight the die cut label. I sanded the embossed part of the label for added effect. Those scrolls are beautiful! The sentiment is a perfect fit for the Spellbinders tag. You can find all the links below.
The Penny Black team shared another beautiful card using one of my new stamps called So Blessed on their blog today. Wait till you see Laura's new sets...they are gorgeous! I can't wait to share projects using them all, hopefully soon, if mail would just hurry up :).
