Cuttlebug Sympathy Card

I wish to goodness I could remember who I CASE'd this from - they are genius! I am most positive it was the Stampin' with Beate Yahoo List serve group. A totally talented bunch of ladies (I don't think I saw any gents) - and I learn a lot and get great ideas there. I put this card here as I used the Cuttlebug, which is not sold by SU! and I try to use the main page for ALL SU stuff now. However, I do believe this is beau-ti-ous. Too bad it is a sympathy card. The sentiment can easily be changed though if you want. I did two cards at once as you mist the stamp before stamping and so the second card looks much more watery colored. KWIM? But I also used my new Scor-Pal too - so I was totally happy using my new(ish) toys. I don't always get to play as I have class stuff or swaps to do. It was easy to do and quick - as well as being beautiful. I like cards like that. I usually do really involved things (like you didn't notice?) but I really do like simple and elegant too! Try this one out!

Another Creation from Girl's Night Out

We had such a great time last Friday! Full house! Kathy, Candy, Tammy, Lisa, Michele, and Stephanie! Everyone did something different...Michele worked on her scrapbook, Lisa made gift card holders for the teachers and bus driver at the twins school, Tammy did the stamp-a- stack, Kathy made other cards and some of the stamp a stack, and Candy stayed and made a FAB father's day card - but left early as she had field day all day and was pooped out! So - here is the gift card holders Lisa made - check out the colors! Can you guess from the colors what the gift card was? Yup! Dunkin Donuts!! Way too cute if you ask me!!

Lisa used a recently retired set Tu Tu Terrific, and I showed her the fold that encapsulates the gift card...we used a ribbon from Michaels cuz it just seemed so right. My daughter-in-law is tu tu terrific!! Thanks Lisa!
