This is a card I made quite awhile ago at a Stampin'Up Workshop. I embellished the card with DSP from my new paper, "Sending Love" from SU. I also added more ribbon, the "Joy" stamp from SU, red glitter brads and silver stickles along the punch line at the bottom of the card. I gave this card to my Secret Sister for Valentine's Day. Hope she enjoyed it!!

These are cards I made for my new Sisters-In -Christ, Yvonne and Janice. The angels are celebrating!!! I used my new DSP from Stampin' Up called "Sending Love". I love glitter and sparkle and this paper has both of those with reds, pinks, ivory and brown. I also used my new round, scalloped edge nestibility from Spellbinders. I also added ribbon and pink dew drops.

This is a Birthday Card I made for my dear friend, Becky...who has now caught up to me in age. She is still behind me in the wrinkle department!! I love working with the Glitter Ritz and this was a fun project with the flower and ladybug!! I added red glitter brads and white dew drops for interest along with the edge punch and sticky ribbon. Happy Birthday, Ducky!! :o)

This is a card I made for my parents 49th Wedding Anniversary last week. Used the Raspberry Tart DSP from Stampin' Up matted in pink and green Bazzill Cardstock and green buttons. The flower stamp is from the "Close As A Memory" set from SU. The "One Love" stamp is from Inkadinkado.

This is a Sympathy Card I made for my dear friend, Denise, whose mother passed away this past week. Our prayers are with Denise, her dad and family. I used brown Bazzill Cardstock for the card base, yellow Bazzill Cardstock for the mats and DSP is "Sending Love" from Stampin' Up. I also stamped the flower image from "Close As A Memory" from SU with Purely Pomegranate Ink from SU. These were stamped on a frame cut on the Cuttlebug using the Big Shot Die.

These are Thank You cards I made while on a mini vacation with my hubby down at Summerville Beach last September. The DSP was the new paper for Fall from Stampin'Up which I really love. I also used a new Fleur-de-Lis border punch.....a mental pause moment.....cant' remember from where!!! :o(
This is the Birthday Card I made for my hubby....I was mistaken on my earlier post!!! Love the buttons!!! The Lighthouse Stamp is from Inkadinkado and the Sentiment Stamp is from the "Friend to Friend" stamp set from Stampin'Up.

This is a beautiful Birthday Card I received from my Special Friend, Becky. Love the embossing, ribbon and butterflies.

This is another beautiful Birthday Card I received from another Special Friend, Anna. She knows I love music and Amazing Grace is definitely a favourite of mine.

This beautiful card was given to me for my Birthday by my cousin, Janie. She does lovely work especially with tone on tone which is a favourite. Her bows are always perfect and the Fleur de Lis Pendant from Spellbinders is absolutely stunning!!!

These two cards I made this fall using the technique of inking the Cuttlebug Folder before embossing the paper. I love how they turned out!! No need for DSP...just add some ribbon and a sentiment and away you go!!

I don't remember who I made this card for....mental pause strikes again!!! I do love the recipe for this card and the different colours. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss and die-cut the butterfly.

This is a Guest Book I made for the celebration of my Dad's 70th Birthday. His birthday was not until November 15th, however we surprised him on August 22 with a big family party. Great fun was had by all!!!

This is another Sympathy Card I made this Fall. Seems like we have been making too many of these lately. However, I love the simplicity of this card. The green dew drops add lots of shine!!

This is the Birthday Card I made for my Dad for his 70th Birthday. The Tree Stamp is from the "Lovely As A Tree" Stamp Set from Stampin'Up and the Sentiment is from the "Best Yet" Stamp Set from Stampin'Up. The ribbon is from Walmart and I added some green bling for sparkle.

These are miscellaneous cards I have made since last August. One is a Wedding Card for Jamie and Brian's Wedding, another is a baby card and another wedding card I made for someone else to give away.

This is the Christmas Card I made for my DH. This is a technique taught by Gina Krupsky with Stamp TV. The Cardstock is Silver Metallic. I stamped the image with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed the image with silver embossing powder. I love this tone on tone image.

This is a Birthday card I made for a Special Friend with Raspberry Tart DSP from Stampin'Up. I also used the Big Shot Die from Stampin'Up for the sentiment which is a stamp from Inkadinkado. I then added two pink glitter brads for embellishments. See I can use just two brads too, Janie!!! LOL
This is a Birthday card I made for another friend. I cased the recipe for this card from one of my card-making magazines. Again I am using Raspberry Tart DSP from Stampin'Up. The ribbon is a miscellaneous velvet ribbon from my stash. The Sentiment is from the "Friend to Friend" set from Stampin'Up. I also added a green glitter brad and a dew drop to the positive and negative flower punch image. The edge punch is from Stampin'Up.

This is a Birthday Card for my sons 21st Birthday which was this week. It is also my take on the Mojo Monday Week 123 Sketch Challenge. I have not done a sketch challenge in months and months and months!!! So it was fun to complete this challenge. The DSP is all retired Stampin'Up Paper. The Sentiment is from a stamp in the "Heard From The Heart" stamp set from Stampin'Up. The buttons are from my big jar of buttons. I just love buttons!!! The ribbon is from Walmart.

This card is made from retired DSP from Stampin'Up. I added photo corners punched
from Stampin'Ups Corner punch using Yellow Bazzill Cardstock. The Sentiment is from the "Thoughts and Prayers" Stamp Set from Stampin'Up. The ribbon is from the Dollarama and I added Dew Drops.

This card I made for a dear friend whos husband has gone to be with the Lord. This was a card we made at a Card-Making weekend in the Fall when Kim Blanchette and her assistants came down from The Cutting Garden in Hammonds Plains. We had a great day with around 30 women learning new techniques and using new products. This flower is made using the Fleur de Lis from Spellbinders. It was very challenging and I really don't think I will make another one as I have no patience with this type of fussy work. However, with Ruthie and Jane's help, got the card put together and it turned out beautifully. I changed the sentiment to reflect my thoughts to Myra. I added a snowflake brad with a dew drop in the center of the Fleur de Lis.

"Celebrating Gary" - Altered File Folder

This is an Altered File Folder I made for my dear friend, Myra, whose husband Gary is now at home with our Lord and Saviour. I thought this was a great idea to store the many cards, photos, etc. from our celebration of Gary's life. I covered a file folder with Brown Bazzill Cardstock and embellished with DSP from Stampin' Up. Of course I added some buttons and ribbon which I love to use. The sentiments were printed on my computer. I also used two Stampin' Up punches. The ribbon is from Walmart.

Altered Paint Can

This is a "Dad's Emergency Care Kit" altered paint can I made for Shawn for Christmas. I purchased the Paint Can at The Carousel in Dartmouth, N.S. and embellished with various papers, punches, etc. The Sentiment was printed on my computer. Gotta love those buttons!!!
