Get Well Card

Had to tell my friend I didn't really want him to get sick just to do this card but I did have fun making it! Somehow, he understood what I meant LOL!

Watercolor crayons and pencils, chocolate scented ep (from Suz!), and believe it or not I bought some Martha Stewart stamps. I know, shocking, don't really like her, but these were on sale.

This is my interpretation of a Michael Strong card.

Did some scrapping during the Holiday!

Used some more of Commit2Paper's BoBunny kit a month ago.

Added some 29th Market transparencies which went great with these boys.

Commit2Paper Jan09 kit

OH this months layout are a labor of love, believe you me. My computer died, my editing software is still not working properly, lost most of my pics (yeah I'm a dummy no recent backup), had major trouble reloading my printer software, UGH!!! My niece Kris came through at the last minute with pics I could use with this kit. It's kinda supposed to be winter related but we just don't have winter in Augusta so some are Christmas.

BUT I never did get a detailed picture of the kit but you can go here for details. It is a typically yummy group of papers from SEI with flocking! Already on the page so you don't have to mess with that icky stuff, love it!

Christmas Cards 2009

Okay, I just had to write Ranger Industries and suggest they come up with a trigger applicator for their Stickles glitter glue!!! After doing 30 cards (or more) my hands are SORE!!!

I wanted the front of the cards to be the Swiss Dot, so bought a Cuttlebug embossing folder right? But it won't do 5.5", I tried and even tried to run it through again to get the piece it misses. No good. All that accomplished was a smashing of the dots already embossed. So I settled for the 4" in the middle hoping it would look deliberate.

Kept them simple, with glitter glue along the blue and red strip. (psssst don't tell but I used a generic glitter glue...)

The snowflake is a sizzix die run through my Cuttlebug (been giving my cb a workout lately). That was great! Got it on sale at Joann's. Popped a bit of bling in the center.

The cardstock was cheapy, used the cs that comes in the page protectors in albums LOL!!!!! I knew I wanted the Swiss Dot pattern to really stand out and Bazzill is just too thick. So cheap is now dressed up.

All in all, I'd say this set of cards cost me $30, but that includes the on sale die and embossing folder which will be used again.
