Back on Your Feet Get Well Card

Hi Stampers!

I had great plans to post my Monday blog post early this morning.  However, this crazy Texas weather changed my plans!  I woke up this morning to 6.5 inches of snow, and frozen water pipes.  It is not slated to get above freezing here until Thursday!  So, needless to say we scooped snow into ice chests so we could melt it to have water for basic plumbing needs.  😒  I was not a huge fan of snow before; even less of one now!  

However, I did manage to get a few afternoon hours in my craft room and got a couple of cards done.  So, the whole day was not derailed.  I have a friend who recently had hand surgery and I felt like the little sloth from the Back on Your Feet stamp set really worked well for a get well card for her.  Here is a picture of the finished card:

Cards using Field & Flowers Sale-a-Bration DSP and the Rip & Flip card technique

 Hi Stampers!

I am on a roll here...two posts in one week!  I am trying to make that my new goal.  I am getting a little faster at it each time, so I guess what they say...practice, practice, practice is true. 😊

Today's post shows several cards I recently did as a swap.  I needed several, and I wanted something quick.  This technique really fits that bill.  The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so pretty that it does most of the work on its own.  Just a simple ribbon and a sentiment and that's really all you need for the card front.

Rooted in Nature Masculine Sympathy Card

 Hi Stampers!

I hope you are having a great weekend.  It is Super Bowl Sunday here, and since my hubby is a life long Kansas City Chiefs fan, and his team is in the Super Bowl for the second year, well there is a lot of nervous energy here in our house! So, I decided to sneak to my craft room and knock out some cards I was needing to get made and sent.  Sadly, I have needed several sympathy cards as of late.  I struggle with those in general, but especially when I need a masculine one.  I pulled out the Rooted in Nature stamp set and used the large Oak tree, which is always an easy go to stamp set for masculine cards.
