Pink Birthday

Gave away the card I had done for my daughter’s birthday to someone else, as it wasn’t quite right for my daughter.  This also isn’t perfect, ’cause she’s AMAZING and deserves so much better, but it’s pretty and sweet, like her, so. . .

11-30-19 MFT TBday

Used the MFT Sketch design for the week, the MFT Fairy Good Friends set, some paper from Hunkydory’s Flutterbye Wishes, and a couple of pink inks blended, as well as The Rabbit Hole Designs Puzzlebox stencil, and some pink organza ribbon and white embossing powder.  Also used a Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen on the wings and a gold glitter pen from Sakura on the wand.

I hope you enjoy this totally girly birthday card.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today.  Have a great week!


More Thank Yous

Here are some more of the Thank Yous I worked on, yesterday.

The one on the left is another one for this week’s MFT Sketch Challenge.  The one on the right was made from a page out of a calendar/planner.  Simple and done.  As this is being passed along to a friend, I’m not worried about using it.

This last one is one of my favorites:

This one is for the cook that stepped in at the last minute, when we had a lot more people than we had planned for.  She made food for 60 for less than $30 and with only a couple days’ notice.  She’s definitely amazing.

Thanks for sharing your valuable time with me!

Thank Yous

I need to send quite a few thank yous out to those that helped with an event at church, yesterday.  Here are the first few:

I had so much fun with making these.  It was a long day and I was tired, but this was relaxing.  Fortunately, I had a few pieces already started, so it didn’t take nearly as long as it could have.  I know the die I used (see both the positive and negative) is from MFT, but not sure which one.  I also know the stamp set used on the center card is from MFT, but not sure which one.  (Sorry, posting from work.)

Using that middle card in the MFT Sketch Challenge for this week, too.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me!  Enjoy the rest of your week.

Sympathy 1

I need 3 sympathy cards for this weekend.  A funeral today, one tomorrow, and my husband needs one for a colleague.  So, used the MFT Sketch challenge for this week and went to town.

11-1-19 Sympathy 1

I used the same stamp set for all 4, but changed up the backgrounds.  Granted, I added a strip of the background on the side to give it a bit more interest.  To make these, I die cut holes in the top layer and layered either an alcohol ink paper, or patterned paper behind.  Used gold on all of them for the sentiment and sprayed a bit of gold on top.  I had used Versamark ink and the Marble Background stamp, but it didn’t show up at all on the ivory card, and wasn’t quite enough on the blue.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today.  Now, I need to go get ready for today’s funeral.  I will post the other two cards done in the same manner in just a minute.


Christmas in Halloween Colors had a challenge last week to make any card using Halloween colors, but 1 card per color.  I decided to do Christmas cards.  As I don’t have 1/2 my normal amount, yet.  They aren’t all getting done, so I’m having to cut my list down significantly, but I did get these done:

I used the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge for the week on all of them, too.  I’m only entering the black one, as I don’t have time to do 4 separate blog posts.  Used a Darice embossing folder, the snow for 3 of them, and leaves for the orange one.  After that, brushed Nuvo mousse in the color needed, covering the top.  It’s lighter in places and darkest on the raised edges of the embossing.  Heat embossed the sentiment from the MFT Seasonal Sentiments (retired) set, using Sparkle n’ Sprinkle (now Glitter Galore, I think) embossing powder for all but the orange, which is Hero Arts Copper.  Added either some ribbon, rhinestones, or both in the correct color.

Not too difficult, or time consuming, and got 4 more Christmas cards done, in fun colors that actually work for Christmas, or Thanksgiving for the orange one, though Christmas would have worked for that, too.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today!
