The aftermath of card day


So after card making day is over, and I'm tired. Guess what's left? A HUGE MESS! And yes, I made all that mess. Amazing how much stuff it takes to make cards, huh? That's not even everything I used. I did put stuff away as I went along. I had stuff in the floor and on my other table too, but I didn't want you to think I'm a complete slob! Haha..
I did clean it up, as it will be ready for me to mess up again soon. :)

And yet some more cards! They just keep coming huh? Sorry about the fuzzy pics! I need to re-shoot in daylight and get the sun on them. The monkey birthday isn't finished yet. He's a work in progress. :) Sock Monkey (c) Stampin Up!; Birds Inkadinkadoo/Hello sentiment, stampendous; Bunny Love, Close to My Heart

Card Day!


I made a mess today! I had a creative streak. I have had crafter's block for a while, and just stumped on any ideas for anything! Today...that block was gone! I did mostly "clean and simple" cards. Some of them I am donating to troops to send out for Mother's day. A couple are Easter cards, and one or two might show up in a contest... Zoo Animals, Technique Tuesday; Bird/Life is Sweet, Prima Marketing; Mother's day sentiment, unknown

Quilled Birthday


Here's a card I made for my aunt's birthday with a quilling pattern I had from a book. I think it turned out ok!

WOW! I just found Picasa through Google to edit photos. AMAZINGLY SIMPLE! I never did get the other photo editing programs because there was so much stuff, and seemed so overwhelming! I got picasa to do watermarks on my card photos, and was playing around with an old photo to get the hang of it. So far, I'm liking it!

Queen for a day!

I had a thought in my head that was so vivid, I had to follow through! This is the result! And it didn't take me long to put it all together. I liked the result! This was for my friend for her birthday. The cards are mini playing cards, I crinkled them in the paper crimper, distressed all the cards and papers with chalk black ink and Stampin up Basic Black. I used the cuttlebug argyle embossing folder and ran the ink over the raised parts. Attached some ribbons, brads and clear square buttons, and voila!
