I diecut the image in Rich Razzleberry and off set it on some Whisper White card stock, then layered that on some Basic Black, then on a Not Quite Navy card...looking at the photo now, I could have assembled the pieces a little straighter!
I figured this would make a lovely Anniversary card...

I used some retired D/S paper and the Tasteful Trim die cut...I used some Craft ink on the hand stamp--it gave it a much richer color than the Classic ink...the blue heart looked very plain so I popped it into the Swiss Dots embossing folder...the buttons I have had for eons! Glad they came in handy for this project!
Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, So Saffron

...for the bottom card I went a little wild with the card colors, but I only made one since I didn't want to waste the paper....

The original one that I CASEd had red and white striped paper, instead of plaid...but you have to work with what you have laying around!
I made this card as a Thank You in the beginning of July--how perfect?

She asked me to make a beach-themed wedding card for her friend, whose wedding colors were hot pink and neon green....isn't that a challenge?!?!
I had been wanting to make this sand castle card that I saw on Dawn Olshefske's blog (she has full directions so check it out!) I pulled in the pink and green colors on the flag and with the flowers...I really like how it turned out!
The card measure 5 1/4 square (to fit in some large envelopes that I have had forever and never thought to use...

This card fits in a standard envelope (the one that fits a check)...the main cross image in non-SU!, but the background stamp (from set Always) and all the paper and ink is SU!
The little scalloped edge around the 'pennant' middle section in the ribbon border punch just taped behind the 'pennant'...
Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy
Rose Red, Regal Rose

I just realized that I have to download the photos from my camera so I can share some more stamped items, so I decided to show you my garden... I took some of these lilies from my mom's garden 2 years ago since they were this traffic-cone orange, but when they bloom in my yard, they are the most delicate shade of peach...

I needed a 'New Home' card to send to an old friend and I couldn't wait to use this wheel! Notice the LAYOUT in the middle card? I think I like the last cards the best--they are paper pieced...lots of cutting but worth the effort!

|Here's a card I made for my SIL b'day...I saw this card but had no idea how they made the flip flops so I came up with this idea using the Butterfly punch...|
|Lay one Butterfly punch on top of the other, lining up as shown...|
|Trim as shown...|
|You can get 2 shoes from one butterfly punch...|
|Emboss (here I used the Lattice floder) and punch 3 holes for the thongs....|
|I used linen thread and threaded the flip flops as shown....|
|Add a circle punched from a standard hole punch and some bling and you have yourself a set of Flip Flops!|
