After all that blabbering, here are a few things I have worked on over the last few days.
This is a little card for Rhiannon's graduation. As it is for kindergarten, I wanted something cute and I have been itching to use this set. I have to say, I wanted to use the owl from the set too but it kind of overwhelmed the little tree so I stuck with the deer.
Stamp Sets - Forest Friends, Warm words
Cardstock & DP - Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla. Delicate Dots DP (SAB 2009)
Inks - Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss
Accessories - Dimensionals, Chocolate Chip corduroy brads
Next is the first card for Anwyn's birthday and I'm really not all that thrilled with it so, if anyone has any thoughts on how to improve it, please feel free to share ( I oopsed up on coloring the letters so would have to re-make it anyway). I know that she will love the image as she is a HUGE Snoopy fan (she currently owns 7 of them) but the rest is just not making me happy.
Cardstock & DP - Whisper White, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Watercolor paper. Bali Breeze DP (retired)
Inks - Black Stazon, SU Markers
Accessories - Deckled rectangle nestie, Dimensionals, Yellow ribbon (non-SU!)
Lastly, this is the card I have made for Steve for our anniversary. Earth Elements will always be my favorite color family and, when i decided that the squirrel needed to be a red squirrel, the logical choice was for those colors!
Cardstock & DP - Sahara Sand, Old Olive (textured) Really Rust, Whisper White. Fall Flowers DP
Inks - Black Stazon, Really Rust, SU! markers
Accessories - Dimensionals, Rust ribbon (non SU!)
I'm hoping to get started on Father's day cards tomorrow so that I know they are done (I am getting very forgetful these days.....)
