Quick Birthday Card

Well, I guess I can still make a quick card, this was made in an hour for my husbands friends birthday picnic. I forgot to make the card, so busy busy, got it done and ready, hubby is off for the picnic as I can not take the heat and humidity that we are having right now, so I had to forgo the picnic. I hope he has a good time, he said he won't be gone long, we shall see.

This image is a Lillie of the Valley Stamp, framed and used 3D tape to raise the frame, colored it with my copics and used a Die to cut out the Sentiment.

Oh well, off for an afternoon nap and maybe then make another card!! Take care and thanks for stopping by.

First Xmas Card of the Season with Some New Memory Box Dies!!

Well, today's card is a bit of Xmas in July! I am making this card, which will be one of many for the Holiday Season.  This card I am making with some of the dies I got from Joan's Gardens and it is for Joan's Challenge that I am making this card. You can see the guidelines for the challenge HERE, and you can see a sample card made by Selma, from Selma's Stamping Corner, HERE.

Come join the fun.

I used Memory box dies, card stock, cutter, glossing accents on the string of lights, of course my Vagabond, other adhesives, my fiskars hand punch for the tiny flowers on the tree, liquid pearls in the center of the little flowers. and  From Elizabeth Crafts is the sentiment Merry Christmas. And that is it. All of which can be purchased through Joan, and if she does not have it, she will try and get it for
you, if you ask her to!! She is a very wonderful person!!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend, mine I guess,  will be spent indoors, trying to BEAT the HEAT, or hide from the heat. Take care and thanks for stopping by.

My Hide an Seek card, I keep playing Hide and seek with the HEAT!!!

Hi, hope you all have been doing fine and staying out of the heat we are having, I have been hiding from it for the last two weeks it seems like, I live in NJ and it has been UN Godly here, and being on oxygen makes it even  harder for me.  So I thought I would do my weekly card for Joan's challenge, last minute of coarse, THAT is ME, last minute Donna.

The guidelines for the challenge at  Joan's Garden can be found HERE, and I did all that was asked, the only thing is I had no Peach paper, so the color is as close as I cold make it. Right now I am just going to post my picture of my card, I will come back tomorrow, and post what I used, I can' barely keep my eyes open, but wanted to get my card entered in the challenge, after making it, before it closes.

I am making this card to send to the receptionist in my one Doctors office as the always goes way above and beyond to help me with anything I need, so this card will be off in the mail tomorrow, I just want to do a few more things to the inside of the card.

And of course you can check out the sample card for the challenge, HERE at Selma's stamping corner, wonderful inspiration.

Oh well, off to bed, see you all tomorrow, thanks for stopping by.
