Pretty Mother's Day card & Betsy's Blossoms

Here are two more cards made at our April Stamp-a-Stack:

This card was taught by my upline, Connie Ingram.  She is so creative.  She bought these lacy cards from the Clearance Rack and made them into this show stopper.  Wouldn't this make a wonderful Mother's Day card?!?!?

This is my card this month.  I am going to use this same design for my mom's Mother's Day card.  For once, I have a card done ahead of time!!!  What an accomplishment!  

I always loved cards and used to send tons of them.  Once I began stamping, I haven't had time to send any where near the number I would like to.  I sell so many more than I send.  To my friends and family, I love you anyway, even if you don't always get a handmade are always on my mind and in my heart.  

Happy Stamping!   Judy   :)

Serene Silhouettes & an Easter Bunny

Here are two cards made by Sharon Madsen at our March & April Stamp-a-Stacks.

Sharon taught this card at this month's SAS.  It is another card that reminds me of spring.  It uses Serene Silhouettes...which I love.

I misplaced this cute card so couldn't post it for Easter but wanted to show it even if Easter is now past.  It is a very cute Easter bunny card that Sharon taught at our March SAS.

I LOVE making cards!  Hope you take some time to create a card or two.

Happy Stamping!   Judy   :)

Hello Hello & Moving Forward

Here are a couple of the cards made at our April Stamp-a-Stack.

This card was taught by Launa Cable-Hick.  It is very fresh and light.  If you look close, you will see that the main card is embossed with the Honeycomb Folder.

This card was taught by Rochelle Hart.  She said it is "springy"...which it is.  On the inside there is a frog on a spring.  Very cute.  The frog is from the Ronald McDonald set called Moving Forward which is located on the inside of the back cover of the main catalog.

Hope this is the beginning of a good week for you.  Take some time to create a card or two.

Happy Stamping!   Judy   :)
