Ok, I know it’s a bit early but I’m in a Valentine mood, so I went digging through the Valentine card photos that I made last year but hadn’t posted. I don’t generally like to post a card before the recipient receives it. So I’ve got a few from last year kicking around. Today’s card is the card I made for my husband last year. Looking back at the photos I realize either I didn’t take many or I thought I had posted this card and had deleted them all. As there are no photos of me actually assembling it so I will give the best explanation that I can.

I have a really special card today, this is a card that I made for my sister. Now, my sister has been receiving cards from me for years now, and it’s hard to come up with unique cards especially when your sending it to someone who means so much to you. Last year I sent her a pretty over the top card (see it HERE) so the presser was on to come up with something really special, but I tried. and this is what I came up with…….
its a card that is fabulous on the outside…
and fabulous on the inside, just like my sis, Love you Sis

I’ve got a fun Birthday card today, and it is the first time that I used my Triple Flip die sest. This card is for someone who doesn’t like a lot of fuss for his Birthday so I made the front flaps look like a traditional Birthday card with cake, a gift, and balloons, but when the flaps are flipped they reveal the way he would rather take in the day which would be hanging out with his dog, enjoying a cold beer, watching Ghost Hunters lol
Hi, all, so a few months ago I was asked to be a guest designer for the Crazy 4 Challenges blog for the month of May 😊, the first challenge which will be posted on Saturday, May 4th, and the challenge is to use leftover paper, card strips or scraps. As soon as I saw the challenge I knew what scrap paper I would use, it is by far one of my favorite paper packs and I lovvveeee the colour combo, and I have a pile of bits and pieces.
Even a Papa can have balloons for his birthday card. This is the card that I made for my father-in-law for his birthday I thought that he would enjoy a fun card and with the darker colours, it has a little more of a mature feel than had I used big bright colours.
This card is the third of three that my darling daughter asked me to make this last week. Her friend turned 18 this past week and she needed a card. She didn’t give me much direction sooooooo he got a cupcake pop up card for his birthday.
I have a fun birthday card today, my son’s friend asked if I could make a birthday card for his sister, his request was, could it have a horse, possibly a barn, and some kind of pop up/fun feature, and I said “Hay ya” 😂
Inspiration comes to me in many ways, most times the recipient of the intended card plays a big part. Maybe they have a pet, maybe their favourite colour is blue, maybe they love Harry Potter. Today’s card all started with a piece of paper, my friend who will be the recipient of this card is one of the happiest people I know, she can make me smile or laugh with just a phone call and more often then not she brightens my day. So I found a pretty bright piece of designer paper and went from there.
