A Few Cards

My friend Sandy suggested that I do some card challenges to help me build a stash of cards to have ready when I need them. Great idea....just haven't managed to get that done yet! That's my goal though!

I need a card for my Dad and Barbara's anniversary. I can't believe they celebrated 19 yrs on June 30th!

Using left over papers I created this card. I believe the papers were Echo Park Valentine collection for a few years back. The sentiment was a Stampin Up stamp I bought from someone else. I used Tim Holtz Distress "Barn Red" Ink. The yummy ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon's ribbon club. Did I say "ribbon" enough times!

On the inside I used Just Rite Alpha stamps to print "and the greatest of these is love".

I made a couple of other very simple cards out of some other scraps I had. Seems I am always needing a birthday card for somebody and having to through one together last minute. I guess there's nothing wrong with that except it takes time and I don't always have that!

This card was a near duplicate of a card I made for a friend and FORGOT to get a picture of before I gave it away! On the other card I had more space at the top of the candles and had put "How many candles?" It was my friend's 50th birthday. On this card I took small stickers letters from an Authentique collection to create the "Happy Birthday" sentiment. I colored the image with my Copic markers.

This card is also made of scraps from an old Bo Bunny line. I don't remember which. You Bo Bunny fans can probably tell me. Not sure I'm completely done with it. Think it would make a great masculine birthday card.

That does it for now.

Have a good one!
