Let me start this post by saying, I am SUPER excited!! I just ordered 'My Digital Studio' and can not wait for it to get here....... I hear that it is such a HUGE time saver and can you image tweaking things any way you want??

****Important Reminder**** tomorrow is the last day to take advantage of  'Sale-A-Bration" spending $50. and getting FREE stamps is always great!!

Now more from Mom's Box.......
Sympathy cards for today's listing.  If you don't have the Thoughts and Prayers set.  YOU MUST GET IT!! For me this one is a staple.  I use the tree and Flowers on all different cards. The sentiments are perfect.  Both of our cards are on Crumb Cake and Whisper White.  I used only Crumb Cake ink here also. 

This one is just run through the Big Shot and I used the Deco Label punch to make the fancy edge here.  One the inside I stamped (second) the flowers on just one corner.

Thanks for your visit today.  I will keep you up to date on the My Digital Studio........YEAH!!!!

Yes, more cards from Mom's box. This one is a general card.  I used Regal Rose and of course, Chocolate Chip.  I Versamarked the background on the CC.  The Deco Label punch and SU Markers for the Center. This is a full size card, I just did a tri-fold so that it opens in the middle.  

This one is also a general card.  Rich Razzleberry and Pretty in Pink with the center circle, Very Vanilla.  The eyelet border punch for the bottom ribbon section.  Very Vanilla 3/8 taffeta ribbon and Pretty in Pink 1/8 taffeta ribbon.  The large Scallop punch was decorated on each scallop using the Crop-A-Dile.  And yes you guessed the SU markers on the stamp.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

 Here is another from "Mom's Box of Cards"  This is Welcome Baby.  Yes it is obvious... one girl.  The 'boy' version has a small craft clothes pin.  The 'girl' version has pearls.  I used Bashful Blue/Marina Mist and Regal Rose/Rose Red for the colors. My SU markers to match and added Daffodil Delight for the ducks. 

For this 'Thinking of You' I used all the In Colors. The DSP is from the hostess pad, they are punched using the 1 3/8 square punch.  I matted those on Whisper White.  Ran that through the Big Shot using the Top Note die.   And the Deco Label punch for the sentiment background and for the sentiment double punched.  That is once again from Mary Fish.

Today and for the next few days I will be sharing with you the cards that I made for my Mom.  She called me and asked for a box of cards.  She wanted to share with her friends my lovely cards.  I was honored by this request.  On today's post above is her Thank You cards.  Her favorite color is green and this is what I came up with.  Garden Green, Wild Wasabi and DSP for the cardstock.  That is Taffeta ribbon in Very Vanilla along with scrap paper for the sentiment.  The 'thanks so much' is from Three little words stamp set.  I used the Deco label punch with a tech from Mary Fish .... Thanks again Mary!! 

Now for the "to do list" This was one of Mom's general cards. I did have to let her know though she could not send this one in the mail.... to thick.  I used Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla for the cardstock.  The 5/8 grosgrain ribbon in Chocolate Chip and Hemp twine.  The stamp set is Eat Chocolate from the Occasions Mini.  I VersaMarked the candy bar on the front and used my SU markers for the "bundle".  The "bundle" is from the Two Tags and holds my favorite little chocolate.    Yummy!! 
 I hope you will enjoy these next few days!!

March '11

This is a Sale-A-Bration set. Three little words, I like the "vintage" look here.  I used Always Artichoke, Newsprint, Very Vanilla and DSW paper all coordinating.  I sponged the edges of the Newsprint and the Very Vanilla with Early Espresso.  I did the same on the inside with a Very Vanilla sheet for writing.  The I Love You is punched with the Deco Label. 

Have a GREAT day!!
