Just For You

It's funny how my card designs come about. This one was for my friend Terry's workshop. Terry said she wanted to learn how to "smootch" and how to "color spritz". I know my friend Jean would be there, who does not like to cut and who loves blue. My other friend Kerstin would also be there who likes the earthy colors and layers. I also knew that I would have at least one person new to stamping, so I wanted a card that was pretty easy, but interesting. And you thought it was just a card... I guess "JUST FOR YOU" really pertains here as it was made 'specially for my friends. :)

This all-0ccasion card features a color combination that I adapted from the Color Coach. The Color Coach called for Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Baja Breeze. I used Marina Mist instead of Baja Breeze with a little Vanilla Shimmer Smootch Spray.

The flowers are punched with the Fancy Flower Extra Large Punch and the Boho Blossoms Extra Large Punch. The leaves are punched with the 5-Petal Extra Large Punch and spritzed with the Color Spritzer. The greeting is punched with the 1 inch Circle Punch.

Accents - Antique Brad, Chatilly Lace
Greeting - Just for You from Tiny Tiny Wishes (my most used stamp set EVER)

Hope you like it!

Back to School

My friend Lorena gave me this cute little box as a thank you for lending her one of my Sizzix dies. She put two pencils in the top of the ribbon like chopsticks. So cute!

Lorena used the take out box from the Candy Countdown Calendar kit. The kit includes 25 fast-fold boxes, die cuts, ribbon and twine -- perfect for an advent calendar or Christmas tree ornaments. The kit is now available in the NEW Holiday Mini Catalog on page 24!

Look who came to visit!

A surprise visitor arrived in my craft room last week!

My baby girl's going to high school....

My baby girl is a Freshman this year. I wanted to make her something special, so I made this little backpack and plan on filling it with gum and chocolate.

Sarah's favorite color is turquoise. I used Rich Razzleberry as the accent color.
