A Friendly Card

Side View

If you haven't noticed, I really like this designer paper. I had made this card before i left for Wine Country, but did not get a chance to post it until today. I used a rub on saying and if u notice you'll see that I didn't rub it well enough because I left out the N in IN! oh well... The card is meant for a friend. I would use it as a birthday card for a special friend!

Photos from Wine Country....

The Domaine Carneros Vineyard. They make sparkling wine, the Taittinger family is from France and the chateau type building in the pic resembles one in France (not quite sure w/c one).

The vineyard at the Benzinger winery in Sonoma. If you ever go to Wine country I do recommend you take the tour at this winery, very informative, the have gone GREEN!

Just me. At this quaint, spanish style market square right in the smack of Sonoma, CA. I really had fun in Wine Country, awesome!

Fun Summer Card

Pic taken from the side to show the flap.

I am very proud of this cute and fun tiny card (3" wide in diameter). I used the orange stamp from the Tart and Tangy stamp set from SU! as well as the designer paper that matches the stamp set. It fits into a mini square envelope (3-1/8" X 3-1/8").  what do u guys thinks?


All Ocassions Card

This card is adorable. I made this card at the Fri card class (host by my SU! demonstrator). She had a diff. layout and I figured, let me make it nice and simple. I love the color combo. BTW, this is the best tie i've done so far!

Birthday Card

The central point of the card.

From the side, to show the flap, I used the Word Window Punch (SU!) to make a slot for the green band to slip in!

I had made a card w/this design before but not as well as this one, I find myself "improving" some of the past cards I have made before. At any rate, this one is a birthday card, cute colors, don't u think?

Graduation Card

I just got this stamp set because I know a couple people who are graduating this May. I used designer paper that I had lying around.

This is the inside of the card, using another stamp from the Great Grads stamp set.


Mother's Day Card

From the side, there was not much natural light here today, the sky's overcast.

I like this card because it's so springy and simple.
