Here is another card I did with a Paper Pumpkin kit. I liked a stamp I owned for the words, rather than the one in the kit. Nothing super special here. Just simple beauty. There are a few sequins glued on here and there as flower centers but besides that it is just printed card with the words stamped.

I am doing a sale in July and need to get some cards done in preparation. My DIL, Amy has been helping. This card is from an old Paper Pumpkin kit and I used a different stamp. It is simple, but very pretty.

I made these cards last summer for my niece and nephew. I gave some of them to my mother to give to them. The cat was a sticker. Some of the balloons were Stampin Up punches. The cake is a stamp that you can put different numbers in. It is a clear acrylic stamp but I don't remember the company.

Sometimes the light is just right. The picture just falls into place. This is a photo of bananas. I took it in the aquarium in Salt Lake City. Looks like it is in the jungle. Took it with just my phone...and I think it is a wonderful photo. Hope you do too. Did you know this is what bananas looked like growing?

I am really enjoying the daily challenge. I wish I had more people to visit my blog but I also know that blogs are not as popular as they once were. Here is another large birthday cards for work. I wanted to play with the die from Stampin up. I also used the matching punch and stamps The bling doesn't show us as well in the picture but it was fun to make.

Here is a picture I took of Lake Michigan in Aug 2016. Before I started the daily challenge, I hadn't posted for a year so it is still appropriate to post it. This was taken with my phone which still amazes me.
Have a creative day!

My daughter in law graduates today. She is getting her bachelors degree to be a nurse. She attended Idaho State University which has a tiger as the mascot. I cut this with my Silhouette quite a while ago. It was quite difficult with all the parts. I used it to make her a graduation card which my mother will give her for graduation.

I made these for my co-workers for Christmas. The hold a Ferrero Rocher chocolate. I mostly followed this video listed here but also made some small alterations. There are several videos on doing them. I had a pre-made flower I put on it. The leaves are from the bird punch by Stampin Up. I think the circle and scalloped circle are also made with Stampin Up supplies.

Late last fall, I was able to teach the young women at my church how to make bracelets. The first bracelet took a long time but I then challenged then to make a second in 20 minutes. One of the girls didn't want a second but the leader of the girls and the two others, beat the time and went home with 2 bracelets.

I am still working on the large birthday cards for work. I will be working at it all year I think. Here is another.
The background was a lovely paper. Some of the flower centers are holes in the paper letting the background show through. The blue, green and orange flowers are cut with a die from Stampin Up. The happy birthday is also cut with a Stampin Up die.
