JoEllen's Birthday card

Hello!!! I made this card for Jo's d-day. She is the manager of our local bar. I used the Stella Rose collection on this, too. This is an A2 size card. The strip is 5 1/4 by 4, the marquee is cute at 3 sizes. I used my Gypsy so the cuts were by height, large 5.25 middle 4 small 3. The flowers are Prima. I punced out the butterflies out with my Martha punch. This is all on a black card. I taped a white piece to the inside to sign. Thanks, Robbin XOXO

Balsa box for Theresa

Hello, my fellow crafters. I made this trinket box, which is from the dollar bins at Micheal's. I made this box for a friend Theresa. She is just having a hard time right now. We all need some thing to pick us up once in awhile. I painted the inside a coffee color. I put wood pattern paper on top and a damask pink on the side. The two flowers on top were made with Die-namics Rolled Rose and Rolled Flower I used the Stella Rose collections. I pearls from Recollectons collection. The journey and sour ticket are Tim Holtz. I put a cameo on the other side of the rose. I used a Martha butterfly punch, too. I hope you like, Happy Crafting.

Welcome Back card

Here is a card I made for our cook at school Velora. She has been off for 3 months on medical leave. I thought this would be a great way to welcome her back. The flowers in the basket and butterflies are from paper collection by K & Company by Susan Winger Spring Blossom collection. It was a all on one 4.74x6.75 page. I cut the flower and butterflies out. I glued the flowers directly down, then laid the butterfly down, then used a pencil and wrote the Welcome Back and used my white gel pen over it. I put the butterflies on pop dots and drew a white gel pen line around the edges. I love it. How cute it turned out. Thanks Robbin

Thank You Melody

Hi Everyone. I made this card for Melody who subbed for our cook. She volunteered her time for us. That was so wonderful of her to do that. She didn't have to but did. We thank her so much for doing that. We don't know what we would have done. So, Thank you Melody!!! I used From My kitchen cartridge for the bread cut out at 3.38 and pan 3.50 using my Gypsy. I used Paper Studio Pink Armadillo paper for the green, blue and brown. The Thanks So Much stamp is from Friskars stamp set called So Much Thanks. I think it is so cute. Thanks Robbin
