Romantic Ruby Anniversary!

My cousins sent out a letter asking people it they would particapate in a "Card Shower" for my Aunt and Uncle, since it was their 40th anniversary.  So I did some research and found that the 40th anniversary is about the "ruby".  So thus the inspiration for the red theme!  I wanted to go for the "vintage" look. Plus, I found that I can make my own glimmer mist, and now everything has to have it! LOL  So if you look really close, you can see all the paper and flowers are a little shimmery. Enjoy and thanks for looking!

A Late Birthday Card!

I made this birthday card for my BIL who lives down in Mississippi!  The problem was that, Christmas and and the stomach flu (the week of Christmas), then we went to my other sister's home the week after Christmas in PA., for Christmas, then came home for New Years only to have everyone come down with really bad colds and fevers, which lasted for about 2 weeks.  It was just never ending for us, or so it seemed  Sooooo, the result was that he did not get his card on time!  :-(  Either way he was thrilled even if it was late!  LOL  But as someone once said, "Better Late than never".  Right?  Oh well, he was promised a card and he got one!  Oh did I mention, this was my first time using my new, Christmas gift from my hubby, the Cuttle Bug!  Woohooo!  I love it and am so excited about using it and discovering all the possibilities with it!

My First Challenge: LFIF Challenge - Thank you cards

Here is my first attempt at doing a Challenge!  I had to make a "Thank You" Card using PKS!  I freehanded my chocolate kiss shape and the face stamp from PKS. Then I used my CB to do the embossed paper behind it.  Thanks PK for the chance to be a part of this.  I think this one turned out great!  I am just not sure who will get it! Well enjoy, and no droolling on your screen for the kiss!  LOL
