CC Creations +1

It's that time of month again for my Thursday night Card Club.
Below are the cards I made, theme specific for each month and one I for my son.
February's theme was "Thinking of You".

I used a Sizzix brass stencil for the "Thinking of You" pop dot that over a piece of mauve card stock that I ran through my sizzix die machine using the Tim Holtz Ornate folders. I stamped a border stamp along the right side just to set everything off. Topped it off with a flower. Below shows the coordinating envelope.

This is the card for March and the theme was "Sympathy" believe it or not this card came together much faster than above...had a dickens of a time putting that one together...nothing went well but this one......what can I's so vintage looking.
The stamp I used was a $1.00 stamp from Mike's. I used the Spellbinders die Labels One for the background piece and the stamped image one. I than colored the rose in a soft pink and the corner tear drops in a blushing blue, using my H2O's by LuminartThe paper is from a K & Company double sided stack by Amy Butler. I picked it up at TJ Max for $3.99. I than found some shear gold lacy looking ribbon that I had and never used. It fits perfect for this card.
Below is the coordinating envelope.

This card I made for my son using my new Tim Holtz stamp set.
So, that's what I've been working on the last couple of days.
Please leave me comments on what you thing...I enjoy reading each one!

Silly girl...

I'm up in my art room trying to making some cards and I hear this noise behind me...I look and it's my Sweet Pea, sound asleep with her paws up pushing the air or as I call it doing her Jane
I had to sneak over and take a picture.

She woke up as soon as I took the picture....she loves my pink chair...or should I say her pink chair...tee hee!

Enjoy your Sunday evening♥

A friends story....

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing

could dampen her excitement – not even her parent's nasty divorce.

Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear, and

would be the best-dressed mother-of-the- bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her

father's new, young wife had bought

the exact same dress as her mother!

Jennifer asked her father's new young wife to exchange

it, but she refused. "Absolutely not! I look like a million bucks in

this dress, and I'm wearing it," she replied.

Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, ''Never

mind sweetheart. I'll get another

dress. After all, it's your special day.''

A few days later, they went shopping, and did find

another gorgeous dress for her mother.

When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her

mother, ''Aren't you going to

return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion

where you could wear it."

Her mother just smiled and replied, ''Of course I do,

dear.....I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night

BEFORE the wedding.''

Oh the virtue of a wise woman.....gotta ♥ it!
