I had a lot of fun making these cards for a customer. I hope she likes them, do you?

I used the owl punch and the bird punch.

Here I glued the brown ribbon onto the Groovy Guava Ribbon, do you like this effect?

This is a wild card, but I thought it turned out pretty darn good!! Don't forget, click on the picture to see it up close! Happy Stamping!

I am really enjoying using some of my "stashed" Designer Paper that is retired. This is called Afternoon Tea. I am making several birthday cards for a customer and she doesn't care if I use anything that is retired. Not much stamping except for the BIRTHDAY WISHES.

Stamp Set: Occasional Quotes (Level 3 Hostess)
Cardstock: Afternoon Tea (retired), Groovy Guava (retired)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Neutral Buttons, Fancy Flower XL punch, Oval large punch, Scallop oval punch, brown satin ribbon (retired), Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Scallop Border punch.

For the center of the buttons I cut very thin pieces of cardstock and put them through the holes and tied them.

Tell me what you think!

These are the items we made at our last class in Anaheim. We made a ton of tags but I didn't get any pictures of them. What do you think of these cards???

This card was cased from basketballmom over at Splitcoaststampers. The gals loved this card.

This I created myself! (insert smiley face)
I came up with this too!!

This card was posted a week or so ago as it was a challenge from MaryJo Price-William's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 142.

It worked out great for me!!
