I made this card for the sisterhood.  Our hostess this round is Kelly.  I saw some cards with the wood background and really liked it.  Was just about to ask my neighbor if she had the stamp when I decided to look through my collection to see if I had something I could use.  To my surprise, I own the exact stamp.  I tried to go for the porthole look.

Game On

I joined Nichole's birthday swap on scs.  I had a lot of fun putting the controller together.  The controller die is from My Favorite Things and the stamps are from Papertrey.

Happy Heart Day

My oldest daughter (20) is less than 3 months away from getting her bachelor's degree in Radiology technology (basically, she's the one to take any standard x-ray one might need).  She's in Boston buried in snow with more on the way.  I wanted her to know we were thinking about her so I made her this card.  The cut outs are from a cricut Dr. Checkup cartridge and the Happy day is a $1 stamp.  I punched a paper heart and stuck it over the stamped heart to brighten it up.

And the inside

unidentified swap

Darlene supplied us with this adorable image from Penny Black.  So fun to work with and right up my alley.  The designer paper and the back circle are from a Pebbles paper pack.

This is the card I made for Barb's congratulations swap.  I'm having so much fun with the sizzix dies.  You just keep cutting through the big shot and glue your heart out.  The congratulations stamp is from a graduation set from Hanna Stamps.  The wedding stamps are from the $1 bin at Michael's many years back.  I found the wedding bands at Hobby Lobby.
