Birthday card no. 1

Sorry about the pictures not being so great. Colored the image using my copic makers, used stickles on the stars and the candles.  I cut some of the stars out of the paper, glued them to card stock, stickled them, and popped dotted them to the card.  I used the negative of a die cut to create a frame in the inside of the card, and used a $1.00 stamp from Michael's on the inside of the card.

My sister's birthday gift

Monday, August 30 was my sister, Lizzy's birthday.  Ten days up to her birthday I was sending her happy mail (although we work together - I thought it would be fun to get happy mail).  She enjoyed the envelopes (the envelopes were filled with paper piecings for her scrapbook pages, colored images and sentiments for card making).  On her birthday I delievered to her this box which was filled with 20 handmade birthday cards, a book of stamps, a gift certificate to the local scrapbook store.  She has been telling me that she wants to start sending her friends birthday cards. Being a working mom of a very active 12 year old daughter she does not have the time to make the cards, so I made them for her to send to at least 20 of her family and friends.  She thought it was a perfect gift. So come back for the next 20 days and I will display a card a day.

Christmas card #14

A little twist on the fold of this card.  I was inspired by a card a fellow card maker did, (Patti W). So I borrowed her fold design.

The start of a goal - Christmas Cards for the Troops

The last few years I have been making Christmas Cards for the troops, so that they will have cards to send home to family and friends.  I have started my challenge of 100 cards for the troops.  At least this is my minium but would love to create more than that. The goal for the group of ladies that give my a hand with this is 2000.  Here are the first 3 cards of the challenge.
