Back from Vacation...
I'm back from a visit to my sister in Kentucky. My husband and I had a fabulous time! Now it's time to catch up on my blog and on my card making! Lots of birthdays in June that I need to make cards for.
Here is a wedding card that I made for my cousin who is getting married in a couple of weeks.
LOVE this designer paper from American Crafts that I got from my favorite stamp/scrapbook store in Walnut Grove, MN. Two years ago I had attended a spring card making workshop and we made this card, and nine others. I loved the card (stamps and supplies) so much I bought the supplies at the workshop (they sell all the supplies to make the 10 cards we made that day). (This is the fourth wedding card I've made like this one! Every time I give it, the recipients love it!). This is a tri-fold card, and instead of being layered all on one layer, I propped the layers up with 3M foam tape to give it more dimension. I love layers on ALL my cards as you know. :)
(It costs more to mail them, but worth it!)

A cowboy birthday card for my grandson! He had his 9th birthday last month and I couldn't resist making this. Love this little cowboy and matching "howdy" stamp! I bought them online from Lizzie Anne, (unfortunately they went out of business a while ago).
