Masculine Motion

Just found another card that I am just getting around to posting. Boy, am I behind. Seems to be the story of my life any more. What can I say, except that I'll try and do better. This is a card that I made for my dad whose birthday is coming up at the end of the month. The card fits him perfectly because as a young girl, my dad and mom both took flying lessons in my home town of Camanche, Iowa. They never became pilots, but he still did some flying. This set is also now retired with the last mini catalog, but I think I will be pulling it out a lot as I have a hard time with masculine cards. The colors used are Tangerine Tango and Night of Navy. The stamp sets are Plane and Simple and a background stamp using the sanded stamp. I put in a piece of Newsprint dsp for interest. I hope my dad likes it.

Been Gone So Long

Work has just kept me so busy this year that I feel I never get time to be creative. I am just getting this card uploaded and the stamp set, one of my favorites, just went away with the Occasions mini catalog. Nature Walk has been a set that I pulled out time and time again. It was just so much fun to play with and so versatile. This card I designed for a presentation at a large stamping get together planned by my upline Jennifer Cotton. It was my first time to present in front of other demos and customers. It was so much fun. On this card I used the tulip embossing folder, some twine and the lovely Botanical Gazette dsp. The colors I used were So Saffron, Night of Navy, and Marina Mist. The sentiment is from the Word Play set.

Now that I have finally gotten this card posted, it is time to start using the items from the new Summer Mini. Get ready for spring and join the fun.
