KM's Card
It's hard to tell from this photo, but the starfish sparkle.  My friend Kathy sent me this card.  Isn't it beautiful?  I love the ocean, and ocean cards!

Feel Better!

Bloom Card, front

Bloom Card, inside
I finally finished the blendabilities bloom. I cut it out, added a couple leaves from Garden Green with the blossom punch and popped it up on a Rich Razzleberry card that I had embbossed with the Filigree Frame TIEF.  I love using Sassy Salutations, because it's very forgiving if you don't stamp it perfectly straight.  I can always use more get well cards.

Happy Stamping!  Mary

PJ's Inspire Christmas Card

Christmas Card

Christmas Card, front and inside

Christmas Card, inside
When I saw the Beauty of the Season set from the Holiday catalog I couldn't wait to get it.  I have some flannel pj's that are white with little red cardinals and grey branches.  I love the color combo and couldn't wait to try it on a card.  I also think the Filigree Frame TIEF is beautiful.  I embossed the front of a smokey slate card with it, then cut a "window" with the oval framelits.  The card didn't come out exactly as I had pictured in my mind, so I'll have to play with it some more.

Happy Stamping!  Mary

I didn't attend our Vacaville Shoebox, but I got this photo from my sideline.  They had a great time creating these projects:  shaker card, screen card, wreath cupcake topper, Hershey candy holder, curvy keepsake Pumpkin, flip card, vellum star card, several house cards from the Holiday Home bundle. The Festival of Trees was the most popular set. 

Happy Stamping!  Mary
