Made a thank you card for the Managers from KLM who came to bring us lunch. Used Destinations for the windmill and oval background and embossed the body of the windmill with my cuttlebug. Used Wildcard for the "thanks" and Birthday Cakes for the flowers. VERY simple card to make.
I used the Christmas Cards Seasonal for this card. Added a little twine on the hat. Used the snowflake embossing folder and my Cuttlebug for the background. Easy.....just time consuming putting all the little pieces together.....for 85 cards!~
I used the Summer in Paris cartridge to make the hot air balloons. I used my expression on the lowest speed with medium pressure to cut out the intricate parts. The houses were from the Jubilee cartridge and backed with a welded together (gypsy) white background.
My daughter was in the musical Bye Bye Birdie and wanted me to make her friends come cards. This is what I came up with. I used Gypsy Wanderings for the notes, Locker Talk for the theater mask, Songbird and Street Sign for the letters, and Songbird for the bird cage.
I used the web frame from Happy Hauntings and my gypsy to make the black card (just removed the inner web, reversed one side, and welded it together), then placed a white web over the card. Added the spider from Stretch Your Imagination and a saying on the front. It was that easy! NOT! Took me forever to make 10 cards, but it was fun~

My friend became a Grandma for the first time. I borrowed another friend's New Arrival cartridge to make this card. I loved the cart so much that I'm going to have to buy it now. I also used Spring Holiday Cards Seasonal cart for the pink background. I used the Cuttlebug Embossing folders Swiss Dots and Heart Blocks. The ribbon was purchased in a scrapbook store in France. That was so fun~ I made this for Ana, but am also submitting it to Scrappy Moms Stamps: Terrific Tuesday Challenge - New Arrival!~ (shhhh.....my first!)
