Leaves, Butterflies, and the Sun

I hope I haven't posted this card before but I don't think I have.  I  love this sun and recently made a few more cards with it.  This set along with the punched butterflies can be used for so many different occasions.

Some More Gold Fish

This card has the same blue for water and orange for the goldfish,  But it also has what is called Sahara Sand.  I think that color is close enough to represent the beach.  I think this card along with the one I posted earlier this week are the only two cards I made with this stamp.  Looking at it, I didn't even put a greeting on it.  What's up with that?

Birthday for Children

I really need to do a better job of making birthday cards for children.  I guess because I don't need that many cards for young children I don't buy many stamps for that type of card.  I did like these goldfish but haven't used the set very much.  I saw a card like this somewhere and like the idea of blue for water and gold for fish.  I have one more out of this set to post later this week.

Happy Valentine's Day

I have had this elephant valentine stamp for a long time.  I just can't seem to be able to sell him.  I think he is so cute.  I like to stamp it on designer paper so that I don't have to do any coloring.  I didn't mind coloring the tiny hearts that are suppose to be flowers but I don't have a good marker for the elephant.  I punched a heart out of some red glimmer paper and have it balanced on the trunk of the elephant.

Vintage Valentine

I really didn't make very many valentine cards this year.  I did make them for my family and a couple of new samples for my card group to make.  I made this one last year and I don't think I posted it on the blog.  It opens in the front instead of on the side as usual.  I like the lacy vintage look of the card.  I have a rather large stack of valentines that were my mom's that I love to look at.  Not only do they remind me of her, but they are true vintage.

The Dulcimer

One time when we were in Branson, we bought a dulcimer.  Jim is learning to play it and has made a glass piece with a dulcimer on it.  He will be donating this piece to a group in Mount Dora to help with one of their scholarship programs.
