Teacher Thank-you's

Good Day!  It's officially Summer Holidays and we are on our first vacation!  I just wanted to share with you the cards we made for the kids' teachers this year.  And by we, I mean the kids picked out the stamps and wrote their own message on the inside:)

I absolutely love this stamp set from CTMH, although I think it has been retired by now.  I have no idea where the paper is from- I found it in my scrapbox:)  The cranberry ribbon and the pin are also from CTMH. 

Thanks and have a good week!

Happy Birthday-Girl:)

Hello, Everyone!  It's almost too late to post my latest Mojo Monday card, seeing as it's already Friday and the new sketch comes out on Monday.  But I'd like to share it with you anyway.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my girly card:

I found this paper at Winner's a few days ago and I couldn't wait to use it!  It's called Life of the Party from My Mind's Eye.  The stamp is from Verve.  I finally found a use for the chocolate ribbon I bought eons ago!  And the cute little pink flower is from CTMH.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

P.S. Happy Birthday to a wonderful Mother-in-Law!!

Good Morning, everyone!  Hope your day looks bright and cheery!  I have for you today not one, but two takes on Mojo Monday's sketch #245. 

Here's the sketch:

Here's take one:

this card is going to my husband for Father's Day, I think.  First of all, I turned the sketch upright.  I used paper from the Cruisin' pack and an old retired stamp set from CTMH called Just Like You.   I added some Durables-Round Studs and some random ribbon and-voila!  Super easy!

And for something totally different, here's take two:

What a different look, eh?  This one is for my kids' bus driver- it's her birthday today.  I used London Market paper and black cardstock.  The sentiment is from Verve. ( I really like their stamps)  I added some flowers that I bought at www.scrapbook.com.  The Licorice Opaques Pearls and the little pink flower are from CTMH.

I love how you can take one sketch and make two completely different-looking cards with it!

Thanks for looking and have a great day:)
