Corey's Pirate Birthday Card

I have to order something for young men.  My nephew is turning 11 on April 7th and we are doing his birthday this weekend (did not know this until Thursday night). NO CARD!! NO STAMPS!! So I whipped this up today using SU's Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock.  The clipart is from the website Kid's Turn Central which I hand cut out (like old fashioned paper dolls).  The top picture is the outside and the bottom is the inside.  I will better prepared for the young men in the family next time.

Clean & Simple--Stampin' 411 Color #116, SSC #31, & FBW #102

OK, March has come and gone belive it or not and what a crazy month it was.  As you can see have been away from my blog for awhile doing some Spring cleaning.  So time to regroup.  This simple (SSC #31 Clean & Simple) little card is working for 3 three challenges.  The color choice is Stampin' 411 #116 (SU's Cardstock Basic Black, Regal Rose, Old Olive, & Rose Red).  The stamp set is SU's Hello Again in Basic Black Classic ink and the ribbon is from the Occasions Mini (which ends April 30th) Old Olive Taffeta.  The button is one I had here at the house.  And of course, don't forget the little butterfly in the corner!!!

Birthday Bliss-The Pink Elephant #56 & Stampin' 411 Color #13

This is the last one for today and works for 2 challenges.  The colors are for Stampin' 411 Color #13 (use Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Close to Cocoa, and More Mustard) and The Pink Elephant was to use green.  I thought these colors were very masculine so I made this for my brother's b'day in April.  The stamp is from SU's Birthday Bliss set and Old Olive Classic Ink.  The ribbon is 5/8" Satin Old Olive from Shelli's Signature Collection in the Occasions Mini. I hope you enjoy.

Tinkerbell Butterfly-Flutter By Wednesday #99

This card should get you in the Spring mood...I love this paper.  It is SU's Sweet Pea Designer Set from the Occasions Mini.  It has so many butterfly designs--LOVE IT!!!!  I digress..this card is for Flutter By Wednesday which is to use colors purples, yellows, and orange kinda of like Tinkerbell picture on their blog.  I attached the designer paper to Whisper White Cardstock, the ribbon  is from Shelli's Signature Collection again from the Occasions Mini 5'8" Satin Pretty in Pink.  The white flower on the bow is from a package of vintage like buttons from Joann's Fabrics.  I hope you enjoy this fluttery card.

Dad's Bookmark-Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #28

Took time off to try to clean my messy house-challenges take over your days!!!!!  The snow has finally melted and ground dried so maybe my floors will stay clean.  This one is for Stampin' Sisters in Christ and it was free reign and to remember that God gave us a gift (no matter how good or bad we think we are) based on the scripture of Colossians 3:17.  So we are going to celebrate my Dad's b'day on Saturday and to go along with his gift I made this little bookmark (my gift) to tuck inside because like me he loves to read.  Using SU's Textured Paper Very Vanilla, Designer Series Paper Patterns III (Hostess Set) for the bottom.  The fish and bird are from SU's retired set Backwoods stamped in Classic Basic Black and Old Olive.  The ribbon is from Shelli's Signature Collection from the Occasions Mini 5/8" Satin Old Olive.
