Vintage Dress Stand

I love this framelit and the many ways it can be used.  This card went to my Mother for her birthday last month.  I think of her as very elegant and this seemed to remind me of her.  I sprayed the doily with the spritzer and Crumb Cake re-inker to give it a vintage look.  I even made a matching envelope.

Prayer Flowers

I make quite a few of these.  They are great for Secret Sister cards etc.  Once again I am trying hard to use quite a bit of designer paper before it retires at the end of the month.  It is great to line the envelope with paper that matches the card.  It gives just that extra touch.

Horse Shoe

This is not one of the stamps that was on my "Must have" list.  Then we got our curriculum for Summer Bible school and I found out it was a western theme, so I went shopping....Now that I have been playing with it for a while I think it should have been on my list since the beginning.  It is great for any guy card and western lover too.  The images are embossed with Early Espresso Embossing powder.  I rough the edges up just s slight bit.

Mom's Day Flowers

 Strawberry Slush seemed like just a perfect color to make a Mother's Day card out of (plus I wanted to use the ruffled ribbon and that was the color I had).  I cut the letters out with my Sizzix Eclips. I wish I had layered them bu they are nice subtle too. I colored the stamps with markers and huffed on them before stamping.
