A FEW CARDS I'VE MADE IN "MAY"


Hello Crafters:
I thought I would try and post a few cards for each month - don't want you to think I'm sitting "idle" :)


This card is made for my sister & hubby celebrating 60 years married next
month.  I did the heart and trim (to match) on my Cricut, the hearts along
the bottom are a MS punch (added diamond-like gems), also added Prima Flowers
with a pearl in center of each one and last but not least, a small organza bow.

The above card was a Sketch Challenge - I used Swiss Dots for the
background, punched the pink flowers at top and the tulips below.  The fence
is a MS punch and the sentiment is cut on my Cricut.  I stamped the "spring
bugs" and coloured them and finally, added a green bow.

....and now for a Cuttlebug Challenge.  We had to use orange,
red and blue, stamp and emboss & use Cuttlebug of course.  the background
is Divine Swirls EF, I stamped the butterlfy, embossed and coloured - also added
red gems to his body.  The flowers are "Prima" with pearls in the center and the
sentiment was cut on the Cricut.  I added 3 red gems to the corners.

This card is a very simple card I make on my Cuttlebug for a
Sympathy Card.  I used a CB EF for the flowers, added the
sentiment on my computer, attached a blue bow and backed it all
up with a hint of blue and finally white for the base CS.

This card has a background I used from the CUP site and was designed
by Susan Heanes.  It is a very pretty poinsettia background and I decided to
add a Christmas ornament that I cut on my Cricut.

This oriental beauty is also from the CUP (Crafts-U-Print) site and was
designed by Judith Flavel.  It is a pyramid style card and I added a black/white
butterfly (with gems) as well as a sentiment (computer generated) and a black bow.


These "Rose" cards by Ann-marie Vaux are gorgeous made
up and this particular one is a little different shape than the
others I've made - also a CUP card.  If you would like to
browse through the CUP "Crafts-u-Print" site, there is a
sign on my Blog Side Bar - just click on it.

Now, this cute creation is one that was designed by Eva Cano.
I love her whimsical cards - and what better than sunflowers
and ladybugs.
