Thank you card for my granddaughters

A thank you card for my granddaughters who gave me a printer/copier/scanner for Christmas.  I cut a piece of yellow thin card stock and adhered a piece  of Sookwang double sided  adhesive tape that is available in 81/2 x 11 in. size as well as different size rolls of varying widths.  I then applied glitter and then used my Creative Memories tiny butterfly punch to punch out the butterflies.  I used a heart punch to punch the hearts from the designer paper.  The 2 hearts on the ends were applied using my tape roller but I popped up the one in the middle.  I also popped up all 3 butterflies.  The white panel was from a sheet of embossed paper - I thought it was very appropriate for this card.

Here is the inside:

I just got this picture of Brooke sent to me from my daughter:

 Gee, when did this 3 1/2 yr. old grow that moustache and those eyebrows!  Wow!  I think she should get them waxed!  And I also think she should get rid of the glasses and get contacts!  LOL
Thanks for stopping by!

Just Rite Friday Challenge

This is the 1st time that I have made a card for the Just Rite challenge.  The challenge this week is sponsored by Scor Pal so the challenge is to make a project that has scoring used on it . . . either decorative scoring or scoring used to create a project (other than just a fold on a card!).
The Scor Pal website has lots of tutorials and projects so I chose to use this one:

This turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be.  To make matters even worse, the 1st card I made I forgot to use a Just Rite stamp!  Aaaarrrgggghhh!  So, this morning, I made a card using a Just Rite stamp and I am quite pleased at how well it turned out.  This card will be winging its way to a very special person, my daughter, who is ill with Scarlet Fever.  She went to the Dr. today and was put on a very strong antibiotic.  Hopefully the rest of the family won't get sick.   

So without further ado, here are both cards.  The 1st card will be entered in the challenge.  I used the daffodils and tulips stamp from their Breath of Spring set, coloured with my Prisma Colour Pencils and popped that baby up on the oval and oval scalloped nestibilities cut with my Cuttlebug.  I added some orange bling in the 4 corners by applying Hot Rocks jewels using my Imaginisce I Rock Tool.  The white ribbon is from my stash.

The oval scallop looks grey but it is actually a very soft shade of shimmery jade green.  

Here is the 1st card I made using an image and sentiment from Close to my Heart:

The scored panel is the same shimmery soft jade green as the scallop oval on the 1st card.  I again used the butterfly designer paper on this card that I used on the Thank you card I made earlier this week (see the other post from today).   This card will probably go to my DH for Valentine's Day.  I like both cards and hope that the recipients will like them too.  

Thanks for stopping by!

1st card for 2011

This is a thank you card I made for my Secret Pal on Pacific Coast Planet.  She has sent me 3 cards and lots of goodies.  The last card and goodies I received from her had her return address on the envelope.  I don't know her name but I do know her address and she lives in Nova Scotia.  She sent me lots of punched butterflies of every colour and size so I used 2 of them on this card.

The card stock has butterflies embossed on it and the designer paper I chose also has lots of butterflies.  I used a round punch to punch out the designer paper.  The sentiment was computer generated (I got a printer/scanner/photocopier for Christmas from my granddaughters) and I cut it with an oval Nestibility in my Cuttlebug.  The pale yellow ribbon was also sent to me by my Secret Pal (I think!).  I plan to make a similar thank you card for my granddaughters only I will punch out heart shapes for their card.  

I also scanned this card and I think the scanner picked up the embossed butterflies on the card stock a lot better.  Here is the scanned card:

I find it very interesting that the scanned card is not true as far as the colour goes.  The picture I took is much better colour wise.  I think I'll scan my cards and take pictures and then use the one that turns out the best in future posts.
