Graduation Card

Good Tuesday Morning to all.  Well I've made my two graduations cards that I needed this week.  For this card I used Deedee Anderson's set titled "Congratulations Graduate", which is a wonderful set for making these cards.  It has both cute and serious sentiments so you have a nice array of cards you can go with.

Like my other card I kept this one plain and simple. I used the last little bit of gold paper( note to self, get more) I have and embossed it with the Swiss Dot folder.  I used Deedee's colored version of the Hat and her line drawing for the diploma and colored the ribbon with a touch of gold.  This one is for my Grandson.  Thanks for stopping by and I'd like to wish you all a great day.

Con "Grad"ulations

I need a couple of graduation cards this week so this is one of the more simple ones I made.  It is a one layer, CAS card that only took me five minutes to make.  My kind of card.  LOL
Both the image and sentiment are from Memory Box and I've had them for several years.  I just embossed one half of the face of the card with some hearts and that was it.  The person that is receiving this one is a no frills type of person, so I thought this would work great for her.  Thanks for taking a peek here today.  Hopefully I'll get my second card made this afternoon and if so I'll be back.
Enjoy your afternoon.

12 Months of Christmas Challenge

Hello to all of you out there.  I've been MIA again for this past week, down with Bronchitis.  Today is the first day I could talk without coughing my head off. So I'm hoping I stay on the healthy side now.  Anway I am here to share a card I made for the 12 Months of Christmas Challenge.  Deedee Anderson is sponsoring this challenge and I used one of her darling images for her " Jingle All The Way" set  for my card.   I think this set gives you such a nice array of images and sentiments for the holidays and I used one of each on my card.
 I also used one of Deedee's digital papers from the "Christmas Cuties" set and a store bought poinsettia that was in my stash.   This image just makes me smile and I hope it will make someone else happy also.  If you get a chance why not hop on over to 12 Months Of Christmas and join in on the fun.  Thanks a bunch for stopping by for a visit.

Jingle Bells Challenge

Happy Friday to all.  I'm here today to share a card I made for the Jingle Belles Challenge.  Deedee Digi's is sponsoring this challenge so I used one of our set titled "Jingle All The Way" which you can find in Deedee's store here.   Here is what I came up with.
I started with some paper in my stash that was cut to the right size so I grabbed it and went from there.  The image is part of the pre-colored version of Deedee's set and I just printed it and cut it out with SB Circle and Scalloped Circle dies.  The sentiment, also from the same set.  I added a few gold stickers, rounded one corner and it was complete.   Thanks so much for stopping by and it would be wonderful if you would hop on over to Jingle Belles Challenge and make a card for this fun challenge. Deedee's also has many holiday sets that you could use to join in on this challenge.  Why not take a minute and stop by both sites.

National Scrap Book Day

Hi Everyone, I'm sorry I've not been around much lately.   We were taking care of our friend's 16 year old Yorkie for a week.  He is an absolute sweetheart but he is blind and deaf so I didn't want to do anything but keep an eye on him.  Other than those two problems he is very healthy and darling. So our house was filled with three Yorkies for a whole week and I was totally thrilled.

Well today is the 21st year of celebrating National Scrapbook Day and Deedee Anderson is having a challenge to honor this day. We are calling this "Lift A Design Team Card"   Some of  Deedee's DT have made either a scrapbook page or a card and we are asking you to CASE this page or case the layout to make a card.  We just ask that you use one of Deedee's images, sentiments or papers.    I have made a page with my two Yorkies, Molly & Daisey using some of Deedee Anderson's digi paper.
I used some of the paper from the "Traditional Ornamental" set.  I also printed out three of the ornaments from that set in sizes that would fit into my hearts and oval punches.  I added two candy cane brads that I've had for years to the right side.  My journal, which you can not read because of my poor photography skills,  tells about the time our babies went to get groomed and Dasiey, being the shy one, automatically ducked down as soon as she was put into the Santa basket.  As you can see I've also added some corner punches on my focal image and the outer edges of the page.  I thought that Deedee's ornament digital paper was just perfect for this picture.  I thank you for stopping by to visit and I hope you get a chance to play along with our challenge.  It will be running from May 2nd - May 9th so you have a whole week to enter.  There will be a winner picked and Deedee is offering a $21.00 gift card to her store and also a Guest Design Team spot. She is also offering a 21% discount off everything in her store this week to everyone.     (21 in honor of the 21st year of National Scrapbook day)   I can't wait to see what you come up with.
