One Last Blossom

I made about 6 cards in this pattern changing only the color of the flowers and the designer paper.  They were easy and quick to make.  I decided the card on the right was the one I liked the best of all the colors and paper I used.

Lotus Blossoms

I know I have posted other cards using the lotus blossom stamp set and here is another one.  Once I get making a card with a particular set, I can't seem to be able to put that set away.  I am trying my hardest to use every stamp set that I own this year.  I am keeping track too so at the end of the year I will know if I met my goal.

Cute Bow Greeting

I saw this idea on either Pinterest or splitcoast and had to give it a try.  The greeting is stamped and the bow punch was used to punch it out.  Very unique.  I need to look for whose idea that was.

White on White

White on white with a touch of red would have been a better title but it was too long.  I have this card made up for a wedding because I need wedding cards right now.  I think it could be used for a lot of occasions and even for a sympathy card.  How ironic that I make it up as a wedding card but say it could also be a sympathy card.  Today is the big day for Molly and Alex.  I hope it is a nice day for them and they have a happy life together.

Iris or Flags

This flower is an iris.  The iris that grows in Florida does not look anything like this.  There are a lot of flowers that we can't grow because of the lack of extended cold weather.  My great-grandmother called this flower a flag and I have no idea why.  Does anyone else call this a flag and do you know why?

Our niece Molly will be getting married very soon.  Best Wishes to them.

Flower Power

Since the last glass post was titled penguin power I thought this post needed a power title too.  This flower is a daffodil.  The next three glass posts will be flower as well.  I hope I get all the names right.

Penguin Power

My college mascot is the penguin so when I saw this bevel set I told Jim he had to buy it.  I think he is SO cute.  Remember when you are looking at any of the glass pictures you are going to see through the glass.  So along with the penguin you are seeing the neighbor's house and yard. 

I am back to my bad habit of not posting many glass pictures so I am going to try to get better.  I took several pictures of glass today and will spread them out mixed in with my card pictures for a few posts.

Thinking about Craft Shows Already

This is the time of year that we really work on our show projects.  It is too hot for us to do summer shows so we spend our time getting ready.  Last year Jim designed a new display rack for his glass and it worked well.  We also got a nice tablecloth and it held up well so no need for a new one.  Here is our display at one of the shows we did last year.

Last Parrot

This is the last of the tropical bird cards that I will show you for awhile.  The stamp set was free during Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration this year and the designer paper was free a couple of years ago.  Even though the paper is older I think it goes well with the current colors and since it is leaves it has that tropical feel to it.

Today I am thinking of two of my brothers.  One just had surgery and is in a lot of pain.  Today is another brother's birthday.
