Another Retirement Party Card!

Ok, so the scan is not awesome, but I have a ton to do to get ready for the retirement party. I wanted to give you all another peek at what we will be doing tomorrow. This sweet baby card is made with Gingham Background, Bits & Pieces and Bundle of Joy. All on the retirement list and when they are gone they are GONE!

We have a winner!

I am so excited, TAC selected my card for the 'Spring has Sprung' contest winner! I never expected this entry to win, but it did and I am honored.
This card is simple. Fold a half a sheet of the palest green from Bazzill Greens to make a standard top fold card. Using Aloe Vera VersaMagic, ink the edges and stamped repeatedly the diamond shape from Reinforcers to make the borders. Stamp a chick, from Hey Chick, randomly on a pale yellow panel from Bazzill Yellows using Thatched Straw VersaMagic ink. Tear the bottom and ink the edges of the yellow panel. Then stamp a different chick on the ivory panel using Gingerbread VersaMagic. Tear bottom of panel and ink edges with Aloe Vera. Stamp rectangle reinforcer as shown. Set aside until the chick is completely dry, then color the chick with Thatched Straw ink, from the pad, using a cotton swab. Mat with a medium shade from Bazzill Browns and tear bottom edge. Adhere to yellow panel as shown. Stamp rectangle reinforcer on yellow panel. Add big eyelets to reinforcers and tie ribbon. Adhere panel to card front. Stamp sentiment as shown with Gingerbread ink. That's it.

Birthday Surprise!

Look at this beauty! Saturday evening after spending the entire day at an AWESOME Angel Gathering, thanks Sandy, I came home to find this beauty waiting in my mail box! LOVE IT! This card was made by friend, fellow Angel and downline, Becky Weidner! Thanks Becky, you made my day! I just love it. Yes folks the strips of paper are really woven. You can not tell from the photo but the pink card stock in the background has a pretty shine to it, kinda pearly! It's a beautiful card. Thanks again Becky!
