Coffee Card for Crossing Guard

I know our crossing guard likes having his coffee with him every morning, so I decided a Tim Horton's gift card was a good gift, and this card was the perfect complement to tuck it into. I used Card Positioning System's sketch challenge for this one...

And here's the sketch...

Gift for Teacher #2

For our Grade One teacher, I decided her personality was more suited to something bright and fun than something pretty, so I made a fun sign for her classroom... (excuse the flash on the glass)

Gift for Teacher #1

For our preschool teacher, I used a Thank-You card my talented sister designed for stamp club, and decorated a picture frame to match.

Coloring on DSP

I made this card for the Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #12, and SUO's For The Birds challenge. My son's teacher loves roosters, so I cut this one out of the Beau Chateau paper and added some color with blenders. I am also in love with the Itty Bitty Banners!!!

And here's the sketch...

Picture perfect!

I used Sketch Frenzy Friday's sketch, and a bunch of my new goodies to make this Father's Day card for my hubby. I thought these new profile stamps would go GREAT with the Peekaboo dies, and it worked great! I am also SO in love with this new In Color ribbon <3

And here's the sketch...

Beach Bum

I really love this stamp set... I don't actually own it, and it's old, but I use my sister's set when I'm in the mood for it.Well, last night, I needed to make a card while I was at her house, watching all our boys, so not only did I use the chance to play with this stamp set, I also got to play with some retired paper I'd never seen, and some Kiwi Kiss, with the most amazing ribbon... I hope Stampin' Up! brings these back one day! I used the sketch challenge CCMC205 for Create with Connie and Mary, but after getting all my elements together, things just didn't "fit", so I had to move things around and reconfigure it. So it doesn't REALLY resemble the sketch anymore, but hopefully it's close enough to not be disqualified...

Here's the sketch...

Rain or Shine?

So, it's June... I think? But it's pretty hard to tell by looking out the window at all those gloomy skies and rainy days. Well, that was just right for the get well card I needed to make, but now I'm more than ready for some real sun... so I made my own :)

And here's what it really looks like outside... but without the pretty colors ;)
