And more cards.....

These are the cards that I made to send to OWH this month.  Some were made as Mother's Day cards and some just carry the word Mom on them so they can be used at any time.  I also included birthday and thinking of you cards and I'll need to step up on thank you and miss you cards to send the next time.

The flower pot card includes a tag topped with flowers that slips into the top of the flower pot.  There's more room for writing on the back of the tag.  The following picture is of the card with the tag pulled out and placed on top of the pot.

In the next picture, the tag has been slipped into the top of the flower pot.

In the following, I used a birthday embossing folder on white card stock and then placed a dot of glitter  (glue) in the center of each embossed flower.

Thanks for stopping by!

I finally made time to scan some cards so I could post them here.  I've spent the past few weeks reorganizing, cleaning out and tossing in several rooms in my house.  I hate to admit it....I'm on craft overload and it causes me to stop working on cards for OWH unless I'm at the local scrapbook store where I can't leave a mess.  So I needed to tackle things at home and it's helping.

I've spent time working on Mother's Day cards for OWH as well as a few others such as birthday and thinking of you cards.  Next I'll start Father's Day cards and I just ordered a cutting die that creates a man's tie shape to do that.  While I was at it I ordered balloon stamps and a coordinating die for those.

I took a couple of classes and am posting here a cute Easter card that I will duplicate for OWH next Easter. The rabbit and his neck bow were colored/shaded with Copics and the neck bow is shiny from an application of ink from a clear gel pen.  I figured that when making them in quantity it will make more sense to use a bottled glossing agent such as Judikins Diamond Glaze.

I also attended Michael Strong's class at the end of February and following are cards I made in his class.  You'll see the stamp used in the trio of girls and the ladybug hug girl stamp on this year's Christmas cards in a few months.

Thanks for stopping by.  I plan to post again soon and will include the cards I've been making for OWH.
