Hope Your Birthday is a Slam Dunk!

This card is the result of a customer request for a basketball related birthday card. I downloaded clip art for the goal and used a Stampin' UP! basketball that I cut out and popped up. I printed the sentiment in an appropriate font and colored it with copics and then stamped the envelope to coordinate. 

Thanks for the visit today.

Simple Colorful Banner Birthday Card

The title says it all. The banners were created from scraps of SU! patterned paper and wrapped over a piece of twine that I tied into bows at each end. I'm thinking now I wish I'd rounded the left corner or corners . . . hind sight blah, blah, blah.

Quick Card, Quick Post

Today got away from me, but I wanted to pop in real quick to share my one of my latest creations. The chevron background is from Impression Obsession, stamped using white ink on crumb cake card stock. The flower is a stamp with a coordinating punch from Stampin' UP! and my all time favorite SU! item. It is stamped in Poppy Parade and the seam binding was colored to match with a Copic. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the scallop border was created by using a heart border punch and turning it upside down, resulting in  the mini scallop look. 

Thank you for stopping by.

My very special, sweet, grandson is 5 years old today!! I can't be with him, but will try to make up for that when I see him. Evan, Nana loves you and misses you so much! And I hope you have a wonderfully special day.

Wine Labels

I love wine. I also love to gift wine. What better way to thank a hostess than with a nice bottle of wine? So I've been making wine bottle tags using Papertrey Ink's wine bottle tag die. And I just received the latest wine stamp set and dies from My Favorite Things, so expect more of these in the future.

You can't see them too well, but there are small crystals on the earrings and crystal effects on the wine glasses and grapes.

Thanks for stopping by today.
