In honor of Suzanne

OWH card maker and supporter, Suzanne, recently passed away. This card is in her honor and inspired by one of her cards.

The image is colored clipart from Provo Craft. The sentiment is from one of OWH stamp sets by Hero Arts. The banner is from Stampin Up. I popped up the sentiment so the card scanned brighter at the top than at the bottom.

Anything for you.

I made 6 cards using this DCWV paper from the Painted Petals Pack. Sometimes it is hard to use striped paper like this. I fussy cut some flowers from another sheet that is full of flowers that are too big for anything else.

Girls make big mess

My 11 and 12 year old great granddaughters busy making cards. What a mess. They even went in the spare bedroom and came out with 2 containers of Halloween stuff. They told me they would clean up and they did. When I got up this morning everything had been put away.

The Mid Week Throw down on OWH this week was to make a card with circles. I had already pulled these papers because I wanted to work with them so the timing was perfect. They are by Daisy Bucket and have a date of 2008. Just a little old. Papers my daughter gave me when she was trying to whittle down her supplies. I made 8 of these cards.

Penny Black meets hot colors

I have had these Penny Black stickers for ages. I decided some hot color cards would be just right for Mothers Day. I am working on getting my OWH box filled so I can send it off soon. I went over the sentiment twice with a Sakura clear glaze pen. The black card stock is a very heavy shimmery stock

Happy Mothers Day

I used the last of my Pink Paisley journaling cards with the butterfly images. Each butterfly is covered with Diamond Glaze. After stamping the sentiment I went over the lettering a couple of times with a Sakura clear glaze pen. Love that pen. The black card bases have a floral embossed wet look built in. My last 2 pieces of it.

It is taking me forever to fill my OWH box. I usually send in a box every other month but I haven't sent one since mid December. Slowing down I guess. I need about 180 cards to fill it. I have 159 and I need to send it off soon.
