Event Full Card

I was having trouble thinking of a 4th card for today's stamp camp. I knew I wanted to use the Event Full Hostess Set, so I went to SCS to look through the gallery. My husband walks in and sees this card and says, "Ooo...that's a nice that...." So I did. This card is CASEd from Pure-Genius at SCS. Thanks Pure-Genius and Thanks hubby! :)

Happy Everything Card

I had fun trying to CASE this card from the Stampin' Up! Tampa Regionals (03-2007). I changed a few minor things but it's almost the same as their example. I free cut the leaves, bent them a little and added some lines to make them look a little more "life-like"? :)

Adorable card

I got the idea to do this card from the Stampin' Success July 2007 issue. I just love their new Prints Designer Series Paper! I have a friend that is going to have a baby soon and I made this card for her shower. I love the sky blue and regal rose combo. I took the white thread and sponged it with regal rose ink to get it to match the other regal rose but a little messy...I have no patience with waiting for things to dry :) oh well....

Card stock: Regal Rose, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Soft Sky Prints Designer Series paper
