The lost card

     Here is a picture of the other  Anniversary  card  that I made for  my oldest brother and his wife. My sister - in - law  took a picture and  emailed it to me...hope it works  : )

    I used  chocolate chip  with  a dp  from SU  that  had  Soft Sky in it... then used  more choc chip and sky  to finish it. I used  my trio  butterfly  die   from Dienamics...I  truly  LOVE that die ... and I used my  labels 18 from sizzix too   and some bling of course.

    Then I used the reverse side of  that same dp, which is a soft floral  and made a birthday card  for  a sister - in - law on my husbands side of the family... Here birthday is the  9 th...I used an old favorite layout  and  I added a white crocheted  flower behind the  blue butterfly , that  really brought out the white bottom layer of  the butterfly~  which was made by cutting a butterfly in half and placing behind the  sky colored layer ~
Sometimes pretty dp  is all you need to make  a card  that is just right for that special  person  : )

    Last but not least,  I made a masculine card for a friend  who  has his birthday on the 8th. We worked together  for 19 years  and he is a part of our family. We used to always share pizza at work to celebrate  our  birthdays...I hope we can  find a day to share some pizza  this year too : )     I used an older color from SU  called True Thyme and a dp that  coordinated  nicely. I added a flat  piece of ribbon  to keep it masculine, but add some texture , and a  design lable punch  for the sentiment,  Then  punched another label in  Thyme  and again I cut it in half and  placed it behind  my  white label.   No bling,   no fussing...
 just a  wish  for a great birthday !

    Thank you for stopping by... July is already  rolling...Busy Busy month for all of us... I hope  you are enjoying your summer  and  finding time to create as well...

     I am not sure  what exact cards I need to work on next...but I know  there will be some  cards  that I need to make, so please stop back by when you have the time ... 

Happy 4 th of July
