I'm sharing a card I made a few weeks ago. I've been pulling out a lot of my older paper pads and creating cards for any and all occasions. They measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Here is one I made from Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper line.

 I created the card base using Stamping Up brown cardstock and adhered a piece of the pattern paper from the 8x8 paper pad.
 I cut out one of the cut aparts and adhered to brown card stock, wrapped some pink twine around it a couple of times and made a bow. Topped the bow off with a button and adhered it to the left side of the card. Cut out a couple of small stamps from one of the papers from the pad and popped them up with dimensionals from Stampin Up.

Wishing you a great week ahead.

Horse woman

Happy Sunday and happy Mother's Day to all you mom's and grandmothers out there.
We've had a rainy week end up until today. It turned out to be a beauty out there!
I made this birthday card for a friend who is a huge horse lover. As a matter of fact, she owns her own horse, Bailey.

 This card measures 5 x 5. I used Authentique's Frontier paper line and cut aparts for the front of the card. Brown twine is from my stash. Brown cardstock is Stampin Up.

Inside - I matted a strip of pattern paper to the bottom of the card just to dress it up a bit.

That's it from me. Enjoy the week ahead!

Happy Sunday everyone. Popping in to share a card I made last week for a friend's birthday. I inked up Tim Holtz brick embossing folder for the background after stamping the ferns in the lower left corner.  I then used Stampin Up dies to cut the 2 butterflies and adhered them to the cut. I embellished with self adhesive pearl gems.

I haven't shared a picture of the little guy in awhile. He's getting so big, isn't he?

Have a great week ahead!
