Creative Thinking

I've got one of the sweetest hubbies ever. He never fails to do sweet things for me whether it's a special occasion or an ordinary day.

One of the fun things we do is to pull old cards from a folder I keep, to reuse previously seen cards. But this year, he decided to be 'crafty!' He snuck into my homemade paper stash and created this wonderful card for me :)

The inside reads: To a super Mom and lovely Wife - Blessings, Bob (and when I read it he said "See? I can make cards too!" Too funny! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Birthday with an Angle

I'm a little late getting this card finished but I was inspired by the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers to create a card using strips of paper at angles.

I am trying to work with new stamps and paper I've never touched so this was satisfying to make.

I love the way the strips cross each other. I'll send this to my sister, Connie, for her birthday next week.

Color Challenge

I found a new site to watch for ideas with a vintage look. I don't own many stamps with vintage looks but I have a large stash of old unidentified photos from the early 1900's and I used one on my card here.

The Outlawz Color Challenge this week is calling for rose pink, fresh green and creamy peach with a twist for mothers or a good friend. I chose the friend since my mother's day card is already done.
