Oh Happy Day, Congrats

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I created today's cards for friends who have recently become grandparents to a beautiful baby boy!  There are two cards because they were created before the little one was born.  Yes, the recently posted Hello, Baby... Girl and Baby... Boy cards were created at the same time and for the same reason.  Grin.


Here's the other version I had on stand by...


Inside both, before they were added to the cards...


Card: Sahara Sand and Whisper White
Ink: Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Soft Sky and Pool Party (boy), Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride (girl)

Adhesives: Tombow

THANK YOU, Veterans

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing today is the one I originally posted for the 4th of July, because for me it also illustrates what today is about; giving thanks to those who serve our great nation, although thank you is NEVER enough.


Full details can be found on the original post here.

Whatever you're doing this weekend, have a great one.  I'll be back on Monday with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Hello, Baby... Girl

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.  I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the 1st of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards. Use lots of layers and/ or colors from the inspiration image...


Here's my card...


As you can see, I've used the colors and the brick wall from the image as my inspiration.  Can you guess how many layers there are in the card?  Let's see...
Card base, dimensionals (3), brick wall, tree blossom (2 ~ 1 behind the trunk), tree trunk, pearls, doves.  SO... there are 10 layers!  7 if you don't count the dimensionals.  Yep, I think I hit the brief!  Grin.

Ink: Tip Top Taupe Stampin' Write marker (cement and eyes), Flirty Flamingo and Early Espresso
