Birthday card for my brother Phil

My brother Phil had a birthday on Sunday and I went to my moms to see him for the day for birthday lunch. He is a personal trainer in Ft. Lauderdale and is very muscular. He turned 49 and I could resist this card for him. I put inside. "Nothing lasts forever". lol He loved it and everyone got a good laugh with it.

Giraffe valentine

I just love how this card came out, even though I debossed the swiss dots folder rather than embossing it. I didn't want to trash the whole card since I had already cuttlebugged the flower and put the pearls on. I love this stamp and love it in black rather than coloring it and taking away from the flower. Stamp is by Great Impressions and the flower and swiss dots embossing are Cuttlebug folders from Provo Crafts.

Calling all my art/card making friends

Hi everyone....
I have a very special request.... A good friend of mine is working on a very important charity event and I need your help. The charity event is the 4th annual "When Angels Purr" and all monies made will go to the HSSC. (Humane Society of Sarasota County). What I need from you are handmade cards, note cards etc, with cats or kittens on them. No dogs, just cats... They can be blank inside or have verses, etc. Sympathy cards for pets would be nice, or just birthday, thinking of you, etc. with cat or kittens on them.

I need the cards mailed to me no later than March 1st. I appreciate any help I can get from everyone to help make this a very successful event for Belinda. Please email me at to get my mailing address to send the cards.

Thank you in advance.

A couple of ATCS

Tomorrow is our local ATC swap that we hold at our local stamp store Bettys Stamp Pad. We have about 17 people that come each month plus about 3 people that drop their books off that work and can't attend. We have gotten some beautiful artwork from everyone and I add more and more to my collection of 10,347 ATCs. :) Can you belive it?? Going to start wallpapering the wall with them I think. lol

Valentine Card in untradional colors

This valentine card was made using a technique I used in Technique Junkies called Pearlized Gesso. I went out of the box and decided not to go with the usual red and white valentines cards. Stamp is by Paper Bag Studios and added a flower and a piece of purple sheer ribbon.
