card for me Mom

Earlier this we had to put our Mom into a home.  She is doing so much better there, and safer too...... Her mind is going, living way in the past - not knowing people etc.  But I spoke to her the other day....and she remembered I gave her a card the last time I visited and that she still had it.....gave me a tear in me eye !!!  So decided to make her another card for my upcoming visit.

Made a zig zag card.... the stamp used on the front is from Inkadinkadoo.  Embossed with white powder.   The flowers are all punched out and added onto the edges , put some stickles in the middle of the flowers to bling it up a bit.

On the inside I used a stamp from Tim Holtz collection.

This post is with many thoughts of my son in laws best friend who recently passed.  He was only 34 and the two of them were to get their promotions from Prince Edward today.

The challenge from my KCUK group was the spotlight.  So here I have spotlighted my son in law and his best friend.

This stamp is from Deep Red.

Butterfly Mingle

Ok our KCUK group is doing a mingle  - LUV them !!!  we are to make something with butterflys and you were NOT allowed to make a card or ATC.   So after several thoughts decided to make the accordion book.  I covered chip board with this paper, then on the inside added the note paper - folded like and accordion - of course

 The Final result - trying to figure out how to finish off the front cover....

 And this was the final.....

Keep it simple....actually it is clean & simple- over at Lost Coast they have a challenge on with this theme.

With this one - I used glossy paper and swiped some colour across.  Using staz on black to stamp the chorus girls which of course is from Lost Coast.    Quick and simple.....
