Not 1, Not 2, But 3 Cards!

Whewwww! It's been way to long! I finally made a few cards! With tax season behind me at church and jury duty almost completed (this Friday) I can't wait to start making cards again! I really need to stock up on the general types of cards. The first card went really quick and I like how it turned out!

Supplies Used:
Stamps-I Cling Wild Flowers (from Michael's) & PTI
Paper-PTI True Black, Vintage Cream, & DCWV LeCreme
Inks-Stazon, Versamark
Extra-McGill MutiTag Scallop punch,Ranger black EP,
black brad, sheer ribbon.

The next card I had started way back in summer when I got home from Gatlinburg. We met my SIL Beth and her family down there. They were staying for a while but we went down for a day and had fun shopping at the Super Scrapbook Store together. I bought some new JustRite stamp sets and knew which one I wanted to use to make a special card for Sandy. I stamped and punched out the center and it just set on my desk forever. This past week I made her card. It was hard to get a good picture but here it is:

Supplies Used:
Stamp-JustRite Kaleidoscope Set
Paper-Hip & Lux. Basics from My Mind's Eye Lush, PTI Vintage Cream
Ink- ColorBox Celadon
Extra-Spellbinders, Cuttlebug Border Embosser, MS Double Arch Punch,
My Mind's Eye Lush Rhinestones-blue, cream satin ribbon.

Update on Sandy- She had her stem cell transplant in November and was in the hospital for 3 weeks. It was a really rough time for her. When she got out she came and stayed a week with us. She went home for the holidays and loved being with her family. She has had a lot of struggles. Mainly not eating. She can't taste anything and she can't hardly swallow. Her mouth is so dry. They have done many test on her and everything keeps coming back good, praise God for that! Time will tell how much better it will get. She has lost 100 pounds and is looking great. The most recent trouble are her kidneys loosing quite a bit of function. So we will have to find out what is going on with that. She has come back to church 2 weeks ago and it was so good to see here there. The great news is that she and her daughter's family are all going down to Florida this spring to spend a week with her Dad. How exciting is that!!!!
Now, for my last card, sad but true, I made this card back in August for Rachel's birthday and never got around to posting it. She loves cupcakes and I found this paper and went with it.

Supplies Used:
Stamp- SU So Many Scallops, and I can't remember the inside stamp
Paper-DCWV The Sweet, PTI Dark Chocolate & white
Ink- ColorBox Yellow Citrus
Extra-Spellbinders, PTI Dark Chocolate Ribbon, Tim H. Brads, Kaisercraft
Rhinestones-yellow, corner punch and scor pal.

Well, that's it for today and I think I will be working on favor boxes for a baby shower this weekend at church. I need to see if we still need them. If we do I am going to make them look like a baby block. So cricut here I come!!!
