Hot Air Balloons

Here is the same stamp set made up as hot air balloons.  I sent this card to one of my brothers this year because when he was young he love hot air balloons.  I think it would be great made up in college school colors for the team fanatics.

Birthday Balloons

I love this stamp set because the balloons can be made like traditional balloons or as hot air balloons.  I will post a card later this week where I use it for a hot air balloon.  The set can also easily be used for a male or female.

I made this one as a thinking of you, but it could be used for other occasions too.  I think it would make a good guy birthday card.  I love the Hardwood background stamp.

Best Wishes

Our band director recently told us that he will begin treatments for cancer.  He is very positive about this procedure and the docs are confident that he will be cured.  We wanted to send an inspirational card to him but not really a get well or thinking of you type.  I have known him a long time and thought this was the perfect card for him.  He was very touched by all the messages he received in it.

Sheltering Tree

I missed out getting the stamp set Branch Out a few years ago and have regretted it ever since.  I was so happy to see this stamp set in the Occasions catalog because it is so similar to Branch Out.  This one is the Sheltering Tree.  I made this one for my BFF who sat with me at the hospital and sent food while Jim had his knee surgery.

The Toucan

I think this bird is suppose to be a toucan, but I am not sure about that.  This glass is called spirit glass and this piece has some tropical bird colors in it.  Jim thought it was the perfect piece of glass to use with the beveled bird.

Recycle Your Entertainment Center

Remember those big entertainment centers we all had in the 80s, I think it was the 80s.  When we got a new TV, we were late to get a bigger one, it wouldn't fit.  So the DH cut the middle out of ours and we now have a perfect stand for the new TV and it looks great.  He saved the doors where the stereo stuff fit.  The frames around these glass panels are the doors.  He is so creative.

Lotus Blossom

I thought I had already posted this card, but as I look back I don't see the post.  Maybe I posted it on Facebook.  I love this lotus blossom stamp. It is what is called a three part stamp meaning in order to get the whole flower one must stamp three times adding dimension to the look of the flower.  This card is so my style with all the things I love on a card: butterflies, lace, and flowers.
