100 Acre Woods Birthday

So I have a friend who loves Pooh and Friends just as much as I do and her birthday is tomorrow. I gave myself Monday to spend in my Art Room to make her card. Yes I have been planning this card in my head for a while. While is was still a very hot day (I guess that is the only kind we have this year), it was a cloudy day so I was able to have the blinds
open in my room. I don't know about ya'll
but I'm much more creative when I can look outside at trees and stuff.

I used SVG Cuts September Stand Up Cards, The Maple Forest for my base card. Of course I made the leaves green because we haven't had enough green anything this summer.
I stretched it as big as I could make it.

I used Pooh and Friends Cartridge for the rest of the card. All the paper colors are Stampin' UP
These are my recipes for the card. Piglet was 2 1/4" and I use Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose
Eeyore was 2 1/2" and I use Brocade Blue, Bordering Blue and Regal Rose for Him.
The sign is 2 inches and I used leftover as well for the grass.

Tigger was 4 inches and I used Tangerine Tango, So Saffron and Pretty in Pink.
Owl was ? I think 2 1/2. I forget to measure. I used Crumb Cake and More Mustard for him. His wings was a piece of leftover paper.
Roo was 2 1/2 inches Temping Turquoise, a spare brown similar to Really Rust and Pretty in Pink.
Pooh was 3 1/2 inches. I use More Mustard and Really Red for Him.
Rabbit was 1 1/2 inch and I use Barely Banana and White and Pretty in Pink for him. The Tree House was 2 inches as was the cake.
I used the Pooh Font Cart and my Cri-Kit Pen to write the words on the back. I was tickled with how it came out and she loved the card. If you see Darla tomorrow, tell her Happy Birthday!

Window Card

So I need a couple of cards and was browsing the internet, mostly splitcoasters for card ideas. When I ran across a card that I knew I wanted to make my own version. Here is my version I used a window svg file from Kwernerdesigns. I used Stampin' up set Forever Young on Velum and embossed it. I did 2 windows inside and out.

You can take a peek at the original here. And please visit her blog the Paper Stamper.
I really like the way mine came out and I hope the ladies who receive them enjoy them.

Happy 85 Years Young

A very sweet gentleman from our church turns 85 years old today. I used a variety of small stamps in Poppy Parade and French Flourish stamp in black for the background.
The cut is from Mamaw's Legacy which is sadly no longer available. :( I miss her work! I popped up the Cardinals. What do you think of the card?

Sense my card has Cardinals I thought I would share about the Cardinals I have hear at the new house. I think there is about 6 pair of them. The males love to come onto my front porch and peek through the screen door. It about drives the cat crazy but they don't seem to mind them. They will also come and set on the closest branch to me when I am working out in the yard.

Heat Rash

So we have young man in church who is a fencer, and his birthday is the week. I really didn't plan to do a fencing card for him, but while flipping through my Paper Doll Dress Up
Book I hit upon this idea.
I used my cricut markers to draw the castle onto the card and then used another marker to highlight it. I would have liked to have made a nicer background and maybe printed off the words. But I had just pulled an all niter at a youth lock in the night before and was getting pretty sleepy. I did play around with Merlin's beard to make it look like Noah's.
Sorry about the glare on the Dragon. I had lost my natural light and had to use the flash.
I hope you all are staying cool. It sounds like the heat will continue for at least the next week
