Special Day Birthday Card

I normally make a card for all of the employees that work in my department at work. So, I asked one of my coworkers what his favorite colors were so that I could make a birthday card for him. He told me that his favorite colors were Silver, Blue and Orange. I was thinking it would be a great way for me to use my Jersey Shore Designer Series Paper. Here is the card I created for his birthday.

Stamp Sets: Background Sampler (Retired), Lots of Thoughts (Retired)
Paper: Pumpkin Pie CS, Bashful Blue CS, Whisper White CS, Jersey Shore DSP (retired)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue
Accessories: Silver Brads, Photo Corner Punch, 1 3/8" Square Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Small oval Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon, Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #58

I finished my card for the sketch challenge on Saturday night and I kept thinking I have till Monday morning to get it posted. I am such a procrastinator. Then I was on the phone trying to get information about getting a passport and then I had to order birth certificates and so forth. Then before I knew it, it was 11:00am. I know the winner has already been picked but I am still making the post anyways. So, here is the sketch for the week.

And here is the cute Halloween card I made for the sketch.

Stamp Set(s): Home is Where the Haunt Is (Retired), Haunting Halloween
Paper: Perfect Plum CardStock, Pumpkin Pie CardStock, More Mustard CardStock, Basic Black CardStock, Whisper White CardStock, More Mustard DSP (Retired)

Accessories: Scalloped Circle Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 1¼ Circle Punch, Corner Rounder Punch (to make the scallops because I don't have the Scalloped Edge Punch yet), Halloween Ribbon from Michael's

My Sunflower Card

I had found a template online someone's blog (Can't remember who now) that was to make a flower card. And I made a flower card for my Mom for Mother's day and she loved it. But I decided to do a little spin on the card for a friend of mine. Her favorite flower is the Sunflower. This card took a long time for me because I don't have the nestabilities yet :-( If you have the nestabilities then it would be much easier. I still think it turned out great (but maybe because I worked so hard on it).

Cards I gave to my Mom

I made some 3" x 3" cards to give to my mom so that she could give them to people and wouldn't have to buy cards. I never knew that making little square cards would be so much fun. I used the Very Punny stamp set to make the cards. I might have to make some for myself now. Here are my favorites of all the ones I made.

It's been a long time since I posted a card.

I have been making cards and taking pictures of them. But everytime I try to upload the image of the card to make a posting I am having problems. I am far from a computer expert. So, I am going to break down and finally ask someone for help. I don't know if it is a program that I downloaded or what. But the window won't open when I try to upload the image. I should have some cards posted by this weekend.
