Birthday Cards for my Brother, Friend and Mom.
Stampin' Up! retired set called Classic Pickups. Colours- Whisper White, Basic Black and Real Red. I can't remember where I got the patterned paper. Pewter brads.
Stampin' Up! cardstock- Whisper White, patterned glitter paper by dejavu, Flower from Close to My Heart, rhinstone brad is Stampin' Up and white ribbon is from Michaels.
Stamp Image from Elzybells. Stampin' Up! cardstock Whisper White and Bashful blue. Dazzling diamond glitter. Patterned glitter paper by dejavu, white ribbon from Michaels.
On the inside it says "Baa, Happy Birthday you Ewe" I like the cheesey puns :)

Images are from The Greeting Farm- can you tell I LOVE their images?! Background images made by Stampin' Up! stamp sets Thoughts & Prayers and Jumbo Wheel Friendly words. Cardstock is all Stampin' Up!- Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Whisper White, Lovely Liliac, Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy.
I have been very busy haven't been making cards as often as i'd like to. I get intimidated by what I see out there on the other blogs I like to read, there are incredibly talented people out there that produce card masterpieces! I think that contributed to making me feel that every time I made a card it had to be intricate and WOW! but I don't have time in my day to focus on that right now and I miss making cards. So, i'm going to be making more simple but still cute cards to send out for friends' birthdays, anniversaries and just because.
When I send a card it is because I'm thinking about that person and want to bring a smile to their face. Here is my challenge to you my crafty but busy Mom friends, pick a stamp image you love and sit down and make a card with it today. Check your mailboxes, I may be sending something your way :)

A Wedding card I made for some friends that got married back in January. This is another stamp image that comes from The Greeting Farm. I used White cardstock from Stampin' Up! some glitter patterned paper from I think dejavu.
