Simon Says Wednesday Challenge “Favorite Product”

I bought this die a few months ago from Simon Says Stamp and love it.  It is by Memory Box and is Large Walking Cat.  I finally had a chance to play with it this weekend!  The pierced rectangles are dies from My Favorite Things.  I made some simple cards and used some note cards that I bought at a great sale at Michael’s last summer.  It was an anniversary sale and you could buy a box of cards  (solids & patterns)  with envelopes (40 of each) for $5!  You can’t go wrong with that kind of sale…

Simon Says Monday Challenge “Just Paste”

Hi!  I love texture paste and my jar is getting pretty empty but I have enough for a few more cards!  This card was done with Simon Says Falling Hearts stencil and Ranger Texture Paste.  The cat stamp is another Simon Says set (“Furry Cat and Box”) along with Happy Meowday (“Happy Meowday”).  I colored the cat with Prismacolor markers and added clear Wink of Stella to the box.  The Happy Meowday was embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder and I add the 3 white dots with Ranger Enamel Accents.

Cards are delayed but are coming…

Well, two weeks ago I was gung ho to get some cards made for friends & family that have been requesting them.  I got a good start and was in the middle of a batch of 10 thank you cards and then wham my old friend bronchitis paid a visit.  I call it an old “friend” because I used to have it every winter as a child and young adult.  I haven’t had it in many years so it was quite a surprise.  Needless to say, it knocked me a good one and I am still recovering, so much for getting lots of cards made!  I did finish up the 10 thank you cards I had started though and it looks like I will have time this week to start creating again!  This has been a crazy 9 months and, like I have said before, I am ready to get back to “normal”!

Update…

Well, I’ve been busy making cards!  Friends and family keep asking me to bring them to parties and it is about time I made some to sell!  So, that is what I did last weekend and I will continue through the week!  So, stay tuned to see a lot of cards!  I will post a pic when I get them finished later this week.  We are having a Girl’s Night at a friends on Friday and this is the third request to bring cards, so I will be an industrious crafter this week!
