Cards to Share

Back to share some card ideas with you.  These cards were all made by very talented crafters...I hope they inspire you as much as they have inspired me...

First up is a card from you can see, it came all the way from Sunny sure brightened up my day!!!  Visit her blog to see all of her creative projects.

 Next up is a card from Eunice (A Star for Chiemi)  oh cute is this?  She used stamps from AL-1 (Sakura Alphabet) to spell out "Arigato"..also each tiny sakura flower was punched out and glued on!!!  Cute!!!

Audrey sent me this cute little tag that she used as "thank you's" for her daughter's graduation from Roosevelt (Go Rough Riders!!!) They're laminated with graduation info on the back...what a nice surprise in a thank you card!!!!

 I'm sure you're all familiar with Patti's work by now....adorable!!  She has a link to instructions for this cute treat box (with spout!!!)...stamps are from MC-1 (Friend to Friend). Cute as always!!!!

And last, but not least is a card from Tina in her cute, fun style!! Makes me happy just looking at this card!!

Thanks to all the ladies for sharing their creativity.  Each person has their own unique style and it inspires me to see things from a different perspective!!

Oh...and before I go, here's a simple 3x3 card I made using Kenji (CL-12 Boy's Day) and bowl of saimin (MC-23 Saimin)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend...have a great week!!!

You and Me Time

Can you believe it's already August?  Time sure flies...sometimes you have to slow down and get together with a good friend over a cup of tea...that was the idea behind this card.  I combined the pattern from CL-8 (Friends) with a couple of our new cling sets (MC-24-Tea Time and MC-25-Hi There) to make this card that fits into a legal size envelope:


Sakura branch and flower stamps are from CL-11 (Keiko Cling Set).  Here are some other super cute creations using MC-24 (Tea Time) the colors and movement on this card by Cheryl...and this adorable teabag holder from Patti!!  Super cute!!!  Sure puts you in the stamping mood!!!!!
