Card Time





Ok, I had a few minutes and snapped some pictures of cards that were sitting here waiting to 'go' to people.....Things have been busy in our lives. Seattle's weather is unbeatable and absolutely gorgeous! Tomorrow is forecast to be the same. My tan is sooooooo perfect this year! ahhh......

And now the cards. (I want to start trying to do some sewing on my cards, so you may see those next....I made one that is just 'ok'). Some of these are cards that I didn't want to post at first, but I'm going to be brave and stick 'em out there anyway.

77 degrees.....

That top card is from a RAK image that I got a month or so ago- I wish I had that stamp - love the dragonfly wings! :)

The pink/brown card is an SU set, colored with Copics and 'shiny-ed' up with SU's glassy glaze (Crystal Effects), and some el-cheapo rhinestones. The "HAPPY" is embossed in vanilla - makes me hungry just thinking about the chocolatey, vanilla and strawberrry ice cream pink on this card!

"Take Care" is from PaperTrey and the floral is of course, from Stampin Up! Can you see the glittered stamens on the blue flower and the distressed linen background that is stamped in blue? Don't click the close up because you will see my bad coloring on that little blueberry branch....

Final card is supposed to be a sympathy card. The little blue butterflies are punched out with a Martha Stewart Punch and folded so their wings are 'flying' off the card.

That's it for now. Gotta go hit the barbeque for dinner :) Grilled SHRIMP...are you hungry yet? I am! ;-)

hugs,
Elaine
