June 22, 2012 Wryn - Grow a little love

Good afternoon and Happy Friday everyone!!!
Today I made a card using a digital stamp from:
http://www.tiddlyinks.com/wryn-and-friends/. The characters name is Wryn. I made a VERY early birthday card for my mom using the digital stamp. 

For the card base I used Kraft cardstock from Hobby Lobby, it is cut at 5  1/2 x 8 1/2.
The blue gingham paper is from K&C Company Itsy Bitsy, it is cut at 4 x 5 1/4. 
The little yellow strip at the bottom is from Recollections (Michael's) and it is cut at 1 x 4.
The beige felt was cut using a Spellbinders die as well as the white cardstock. 
The cute little buttons I found a while back at Michael's. 
The digital stamp is Wryn - Grow in Love from:

June 9, 2012 Thank You card using (old) Stampin' Up (SU)

Good afternoon!
Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday.
I am "trying" to use my older SU paper so I can "finally" purchase new SU paper.
This, may take a while. lol
The card below I made using (all) old SU paper
The pretty flower punch my friend Kathy gave me.:0)
She is also the one that "always" helps me with my layout dilemas. lol
Thank goodness for cellphones with cameras. ha!
The cute little button is from my stash, I am pretty sure I purchased is at Wal-mart...a VERY long time ago; as well as the white ribbon I used.
The stamp I used is from SU "Simply Said." I took a shiskabob stick and cut it to size, since the toothpicks were too small.
If you have any questions....please leave me a message below.
Have a great weekend!!!:0)
