Birthday Girl

Love these stamps!
Today is my youngest sister's birthday!!  I love these Julie Nutting's doll stamps!!  I haven't done one of these cards/tags in a while so.....  here it is Adrianne!  Hope you love it!!  The doll stamp is colored with copics and added some lace and, I think, the paper used is Bo Bunny for the background and the doll stamp's skirt.  The clock is also Bo Bunny.  The flower is from Pedal poo and her bag is from K & Company.

Special girl!
Back of the tag is the sentiment and a little flower for Adrianne!!  She just had surgery on her foot so hoping she is able to celebrate tonight!  Happy Birthday Adrianne! Love you tons!!

Up close!

Another Beach Box

Another beach buddy birthday so I made the card in the box beach themed card!  Mary's birthday is next week but wanted to get it in the mail.  She loves the beach and I really don't see her much in the summer because she is on the beach in Narragansett, Rhode Island.  She and I have been friends since grade school.

I used the same stamp as I did on the post earlier which is from Great Impressions.  A lot of the embellishments are stickers from Michael's (can't remember the name).  I did use shells but also fish in the sea.   Picture below is a little closer so you can see but I  love the way it came out.

Close up!  Love the fish!
Can't wait for her to get this one!  Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Mary!!!  Love you!

Love the sentiment!

Beach Box

July is another birthday month!!  This card is for a good friend of mine from high school and college.  Her birthday is on the 23rd and she and some friends from high school always rent a beach house in Old Orchard Beach, Maine---right on the beach.  They are so generous always inviting friends and family members to join them.  This was my 3rd year spending time with them on the beach and they had a BEAUTIFUL week!!

I chose to make this card in the box because Vicki saw it on pinterest and thought it was a kit!  I told her no, that people make their own, custom made cards.  For Vicki, I used a lot of sizzix dies,  SU punches and the beach chair with the hat is actually a stamp from Great Impressions that I colored with copics and cut out.  The paper is from Authenique which was perfect with shells all over it.  The back of the card for the sentiment is graphic 45 paper! Back to my craftroom to make some more July birthday cards!    Check out some more closeups below----    Happy Birthday Vicki!!!

Background stamp-beach chair, hat and sandals!
Love the sentiment-so perfect!

Wedding Cards

Here are a couple of Wedding cards that I made for Kristin and Nathaniel's wedding gifts.  One is from Mark and I and the other one is from Eric and Lindsey.  It is made from a lunch size paper bag.  I love it because the bottom of the bag makes a slot/pocket for your check or gift card.  I have made a few of these before for gifts.  Check out pictures below for the inside of the card.

So easy to just slide your gift card or check into the pocket on the right.  The same on the inside of the card below.  Love decorating these cards for weddings.  Thanks for looking!!!
