August Cards

Here are a couple cards I made -

This first one was for Courtney's (neice's) 2nd birthday -
I got her a "Love Bug" book with a "Love Bug" doll and made her a "Love Bug" card using my new "Garden Whimsy" set and the "Birthday Hugs and Wishes" set Samantha won as a door prize :)

This next card we made at my workshop that I hosted last Friday -
I don't have this set - but It's on my list :)

Now I DO have this "Pick a Petal" set that I really wanted - But after I got it - I had the WORSE time getting it to work for me!
So I had Jamie (My SU Demo) show us how to use this set - I like it a lot better now and I will probably use it :)

We made 2 with this set - We also had ribbon on these last 2 cards - but she thought one roll would be enough - I had 7 people show up - I also had my 6 month old baby with me and it was close to bedtime so I was the last to make my cards - but I think they look nice without the black and white plaid ribbon as well :)

This was a Hostess Gift that Jamie made for me - it includes some coupons for free paper when I roder 4 get one free - Free background stamp when spending $100 or more - 20% off my entire purchace during my birthday month ... etc - cute little things like that :) I really like this - and will definatly use them all :)

Ok I have more cards -

This first one was CASED by - shestampingmama
Made with "Just because" I don't know how she stamped the butterfly so perfectly onto her card - but mine was a mess - I ended up taking another stamped butterfly and cutting it out and masking it on top - so it looks like it's flying :)

This next one was cased from - Crud I can't find it..... Tracy Stamper I believe - but I'm not 100% sure - I'm so sorry!!!!!!!

After I made this one like hers - my husband said he really liked it - so I decided to change the stamps around and the colors around and make it a little different -

SO there you have it - My cards from August :)

I should be getting my NEW stamps from my workshop the end of this week - I got some good ones :) Loads of Love and accessories (FINALLY) - I got the PUNCH BOX with the blank cards :) Simply Said (FINALLY) - Then 2 packets of fun paper to play with :) I'm excited to play with those!

I'm also working on a little ..... chipboard type booklet - I've stamped all the stamps I own (SU!) onto 4X4 peices of paper and making a little book so I can bring it with me to show everyone what stamps/inks I have :) It's still in the works - so next time I'm uploading something I'll be sure to add that :)

Well we're off to finish school shopping today!
Have a Great day!
Thanks for looking!!!
