Hello fall

Okay...I'm not even going to pretend to have an excuse for such a long absence from the blogosphere.  All is good and I have been busy crafting and doing lots of other stuff.  For now I want to share with you a new card that I made and am sharing on SUO challenges.  This one is for my parent's 44th wedding anniversary.  The autumn wood accents are backed with water color paper.  There's new DSP there and the sentiment comes from a new set for hostesses.  I am totally in LOVE with the feather stamp set and matching die.  Well I hope to post some more soon.  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Dad!

This is the card I made for my dad.  This was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest (love).  This card means more since we traveled to London during their visit in December.  Hope you enjoy.  This is a quick post today...we are headed to Legoland tomorrow!

Happy 70th birthday baby A

My dad and his fraternal twin brother have a milestone birthday this Friday.  I'll share my uncle's card with you today and dad's tomorrow.




This is another Window Slider card that Dawn showed us how to make on her blog.  I love this Retro Fresh DSP.  I think geometric shapes are a key element to a masculine card.  I hope you try making one of these.  Just like yesterdays card this one fits in a regular envelope.
Please come back tomorrow for my dad's card.

Card in a Box

I'm back. I have not had idyll hands but I haven't been posting much.  I can say I took lots of pictures and hope to post more soon.  This is my version of "card in a box".  There are lots of tutorials out there but the one I used came from Anji Juda.  I like it because the flaps are less "flappy".  This one is going to my german neighbor's daughter who will be turning 4 soon (see 4 balloons).  The greeting is in Deutch :)  I can't think of the DSP but I used daffodil delight and melon mambo for the colors.  Party this Way and Keep Calm are the sets I used.
Give it a try...it's really not hard and it folds flat and fits in a regular envelope.  Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Jill!

Did I fall off the planet or continent again...no.  I can hardly believe it has been so long since I posted anything.  We had some fun adventures over the holidays and traveled a good bit.  Of course I've been creating but everything has been going out the door before I could take a picture.   I hope to get back on the wagon and post some new things.
 It is one of my faithful blog followers' birthday today and to celebrate I made this card...98% SU stuff.

The card was demonstrated on Dawn's blog.  It is a really fun card and not hard to put together at all.
So happy birthday Jill...I promise I will post more.
