I am making some cards for Cards For Cubs. They are collecting cards until March 31 for foster care agencies who give them out to kids in the foster system. It is something to make these kids feel special during a difficult time in their life. If you like to make kids cards, check out their site.

I am sharing a girly card. What little girl doesn't like pink and purple plus a little sparkle. 

The patterned papers are from Recollections, the pink sparkle paper is from Ms. Sparkle and Co. The die cut butterfly is from the Simply Marbelous paper from SU. The sentiment is an old unlabled one. 

I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

Sailboats for Men

Sailboats are one of my go to designs for masculine cards. 

 I have chosen a pocket card. for the Fancy Fold theme at Cardz 4 Guyz 

The designer paper is from SU New Horizons. These are gorgeous papers that make great backgrounds. All I needed to add is the sailboat from SU Swirly Bird (retired) and an SU Sentiment. I stamped the sentiment in Tim Holtz Denim, fussy cut around it and then sponged on more of the ink. It makes the sentiment blend into the sea. 

The card inside has a computer made sentiment. I continued the nautical theme with some cord tied onto the top.

Oddball Easter Bunny

Whew! I just finished a commission for 100 cards. Fortunately, they were all alike and done with a digital stamp. So back to our regularly scheduled program. 

I am featuring a NBUS stamp from Stamping Bella. It is called Oddball Bunny and it is adorable.

I've used SU papers--Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, and a sheet from Daffodil Afternoon which is a freebie during Sale-A-Bration. The bunny was colored with SU blends and die cut. The sentiment is also a SU one.

This is a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

Man's Birthday

Today I a sharing a quick and easy men's birthday card. 

 The paper are from SU Heart and Home Memories and More Card pack. The sentiment is an old SU one as well as the label punch. A little cord from the stash and done.

Barely done in time for the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

Not a Card

I have been making a set of cards for a silent auction and fund raiser for our local cancer patient services group. I used 2 sheets of SU Daffodil Afternoon DSP free with Sale-A-Bration to make 12 cards. So now I need a decorated bag for them.

I used a plain white gift bag. You can't tell in the picture but I used an SU E/F called bark on the Mossy Meadow corner piece, turning it vertical makes it look like grass.  The flowers and stems are SU's Nature Harvest.  The sentiment is a retired SU one. I had a tiny smudge of ink on the circle so added 3 punched flowers. Also made a gift tag with 3 more punched flowers and leaves. 

I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches except in reverse because I accidentally put the glue on the wrong side of the triangle. LOL! Surely that hasn't happened to anyone else?

Here is a picture of a few of the cards going in this gift bag.
