As you all know I struggle with making cards for guys, don't know why but I do. I hope he didn't think it was too childish for him, but the gift inside was appreciate though! I used an embossing folder from Stampin' Up! that has hearts on it, after I had embossed it I used my Simply Score to add the lines above and below the embossing. Used the Cupcake Builder punch (this punch really makes it easy to add that something extra to the card). Punched out a circle and a scalloped circle and added a few pieces of scrap ribbon (see those scraps come in handy)! Card stock I used is Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Night of Navy.
Well, thank you for taking the time to drop in to see me, I appreciate it so much! Mary

My daughter saw the vet a couple days after she had received her card and she told Kelly that it made her cry. That was Bay-bay, everyone who knew her loved her!
Hope you are having a great day too, Mary

Hello everyone! Sorry I was gone for awhile, it has been busy around here with losing Bella and then working on the wedding invites. I've got all the response cards printed, cut and stamped and even stamped on the envelope too, so that is one less thing on the to-do list, it is getting shorter. Now on to the thank you cards for wedding gifts.
The cards in the picture above are two that I made after watching a video made by Frances Martin, you can view it HERE. Once you get the hang of it, they are very easy to make. The one on the right is one that I gave to my mom for Mother's day, yes, these pictures have been sitting on my camera for awhile! Everything is from Stampin' Up!
Stamp set: Just Believe
Card stock: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry
Ribbon: Pretty In Pink, Whisper White
Brad from Sale-A-Bration
Ink: Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery
I hope you are all enjoying this Memorial Day week-end too. Hubby and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary last night, we went to a friends wedding! Have a great crafty week-end! Mary

I had so much fun stamping and color this image for another card that I made, you can see that one HERE, that I made another one to send to a teenager who is recovering from a car accident. Boy, if you think making a card is hard when for a man, try making one for a male teenager! I hope he likes it and that he is doing better by now too! This time I left off the flowers and added some bakers twine and also embossed the background to add some texture to it.
Well, this is my share for today, hope you have a great rest of the week too! Mary
