"Special Fold Card"

Monday, April 25, 2011

Hope everyone had a Great Easter with thier family and loved ones. The weather here was great, and the community pool was crowded.

The card I have for you today is a special fold card. After it is folded, it will fit a standard A2 envelope. I'm cheap that way and try to stick to regular postage.

Here is the card of the day;

"Special Fold"

The image stamp used for this card was one from "Just-Rite" stamps called "Beautiful Blossoms". The sentiment stamp is from "The Angel Company" called "Swirly Sayings". The sentiment stamps is a discountinued set, but I never get rid of sentiment stamp sets. You never know when you will need them.

The cardstock is cut to 4 1/4" X 11". It is scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". After it is scored it is folded in half then folded back to the left. This leaves you with a standard 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.

Most of the background papers I purchased from Joann's. The image was cut out with a Spellbinder die. The decorative strip on the center mat was punched with a "Martha Stewart" punch.

Of course the image was colored with my Copic markers.

The card was fun to make. I hope you enjoy it and will leave a comment.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

"Bring a Smile Card"

Monday, April 18, 2011

Quite often I send card to friends, for no special reason. The purpose of the card is to let them know that I am thinking of them. The main reason is to bring a smile to thier face. If I can make someone smile or laugh, it makes my day.

The card for the day is just such a card;

"Smile Card"

Both the image and the sentiment stamp are from "The Angel Company". The image is from a set called "Funny Farm" T-3115 and the sentiment is from the set "Funny Farm Phrases" T-3125. Great stamps and sentiments, if you like the comical.

The card is a very simple card, so I don't have a lot of chatter about it.

Hope it bring a smile to your day. Your comments are always appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

"Cupcake Tilda"

Sunday, April 10, 2011

This week has been a busy week. It is "Masters Week". For all of you that don't follow golf, it is a big week in Augusta, GA. All of the top golfers in the world are in town for the week. For those of you that have never had the opportunity to visit the "Augusta Nationals" here is a few photos to show you what it looks like. It's a little piece of heaven on earth.

"The Club House"
Beautiful clubhouse that was built in the 1930's
"One of the Par 3's"

The player are teeing off from a spot in the top left of the photo. The brave souls in the center of the fairway have the shots coming right over thier heads. If you get a chance, to visit the "Masters" take it you will love it.

Todays card is an older Magnolia image. Cupcake Tilda which you can use for just about any occassion. Here is my rendition of the image.

"Cupcake Tilda"

The image was colored with Copic markers. The background paper is from Joann's and says "Happy Birthday". I decorated the edges with a Fiskars Corner, Border punch. The flowers on the left side are from Michaels in the Home Decore section. All of the mats were cut with a Spellbinder die.

A pretty simple card, but it, in my opinion, cute. Hope you enjoy todays card and will leave a comment.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
