I made this card today, and I embossed the card stock (white) with a Cuttlebug embossing folder "Bird Call", and I stamped the blue colour inside the folder so that it would show on the card. I used blue ribbon and two white daisy's with a blue rhineston brad. I am entering this card in Simon Says Stamping "anything goes"

This card I made for this weeks challenge on Joans Gardens, I found in my stash some nice pink paper with flowers on it and I used two white doilies and a corner piece in white, I made the flowers from MFT Die-Namics "Prima Donna Flowers" and I used a Fancy That die "Flourish" and I cut and made the rolled flowers myself, the dragonflies were cut with a Fancy That die from Silver card, and I used rhinestones on the backs of the dragonflies, I used Pink, Green and Gold kindyglitz on the flowers and stems and also on the corner piece, you can't see it very well as the larger photo was too pale because the camera has a flash which I cannot disconnect and I had to take the photo at a distance. I tried one with my camera but I couldn't find out how to download the photo (which was quite good) so I will have to ask my 12 year old grandson to show me how. .I do not seem to be able to follow the instructions in the book that came with the camera. I feel like such a dill!!

This card I made to go into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge for April Showers, and made it with the back ground a Websters Papers 6 x 6 pad, "petitt papers", and the corner is a Joy crafts cutting and embossing die as is the butterfly, the dragon fly is a Fancy That cutting die and the umbrella is a My Favourite Things Die-Namic cutting die and the rhinestones on the butterfly and silver dragonfly are Craft Works rhinestone stickers, the papers from the umbrella, butterfly and dragonfly are all from my stash. I enjoyed making this card as it is a little different from my usual style,

This card was made for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge "Favourite Tools", my favourite paper is the background, We R Memory Keepers "Travel Light", the cutting die is a Quick Kutz Telephone which I bought at the beginning of my card making days. The button and string and alpha's are from my stash, and I am very happy with this card, even though the scanning is a bit wonky!!

This is another Jalopy, one of my favourite Tim Holtz cutting dies, you can make a card for a man or a woman, varying colours and backgrounds. This one has a background from a Bo Bunny 6 x 6 paper pad, "Timepiece Collection" which I love, the main part of the car is made with silver cardstock (shiny) so it makes it hard to photograph and scan, it comes out dark. The Top, Running board and wheel centres etc are black card stock, all these I had in my stash, I made the small flowers and the clock is also from my stash, that I bought from China, the flat backed stick on pearls are from Kaisercraft Basics.

This card is a combination of different elements, I used my own card stock for the base of the card, The Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper for the background, Tim Holtz "Iron Gate for the sides, Birdcage which my friend cut out for me, I don't remember exactly who designed the cutting die, a fairy from my stash that I previously bought from China, butterflies are from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper and the flowers I made myself from Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers. The Bird on top of the birdcage is a Tim Holtz Mini Cutting die "Mini Bird and Cage Set".
the rhinestones are from Cre8tive. I am happy how it turned out, and hope the person it is for will like it too.
