Heels are a girls best friend!!

I have a girls friend who had a fondness for shoes...I think she might have a pair that look pretty close to this one! It was the best Birthday card I could think of for her!!! P.S.... Cherries happen to be her fave as well!! Hee hee It was nice to put them both on a card!!

What more babies?

So we just found out that 2 more people at work are expecting babies! WHAT! I am not even going near this place again!! And I will not be drinking the water! I did use Kathy's stamp for this card. I told you I would steal it! Ok I gave it back but I did stamp out a few for me before I gave it back! Hee Hee...Thanks Kathy!! We are so happy for this couple. My hubby and I have known them for over 11 years and have been lucky enough to see them grow together and it is going to be so nice watching them start their family!

My dad is this guy!

My dad is the kind of man who goes fishing in the rain and loves it...he takes off with his fishing guys a few times a year and he was running the Fishing club for a few years...yes fishing club! So I just wonder what took Kathy so long to get this stamp. I think this this might be one of my all time favorite cards Kathy has creative and and there is so much depth in the background she did... Yippie for the fishermen out there!! Whoot Whoot!!

a couple of cute pods!

I totally took this stamp from Kathy! I had to make so many baby cards I wanted them to be different...what do you think? I was still in my neutral mood so I stuck with CC, VV and SS. Kathy's card is more spring/summer and totally beautiful and soft. Perfect baby card Kathy...It ...Thanks for looking! We have my nephew's birthday coming up and I will be sure to post the cards...yep more boy cards!!

a baby bib

I totally copied the idea of this card..found on SCS...One of the girls at work just had her baby and I knew I needed to make this one for her!!! So fun! I added a gathered ribbon around the top front and it is tied to look like a bib...I love the " quilt" look of this you might remember I have done a couple of quilt cards! Thanks for looking!!!

A grad card

I know it is not grad time but our cousin/ nephew graduated college and is going east for more schooling at York U....and he did it with honors...Yeah Sean!!! So his Mommy is having a going away lunch for him!! Who doesn't like a party right??? I told you I was needing "man" stamps ....I love him ...I think it will work for so many events....I threw in the grad hat at the top...I think it works!!! I did paper piece most of him and I think it made the clothing look like fabric!

A simple thank you

Sometimes a simple thank you is all you need. I wanted to make this as neutral as possible...I first wanted to have it only black and Very vanilla but it needed the soft yellow....What do you think??

Cheers to the boys!

I am always looking for " boy/ man" cards..I never seem to have the one I need so whe I saw this Beerbella man I snatched it up! I think he is great and it was prefect for a 40th birthday for my cousin earlier this week... This is him to a tee! the only thing that would make this even more perfect for him would be if there was a golf club in his other hand! Michelle had the great idea to use Liquid Applique as the foam at the top of the bottle!! What do you think? Would this work for your man??

Friday, August 7, 2009
