Happy Thursday!

Good morning everybody! I'm up bright and early (ok for me this is early) and I'm ready to take on the day.

I'm sorry for the lack of posting ~ I've got company here from out of state, well she's more like family. She's been a part of the family as long as I have we could say. So I've been spending time with her. But we have been crafty together.

First thing that I want to show you is a RAK card that I received from Kemi over at KSSdesigns. She's my uplines upline - or as we like to call it my grandma :)
She a talented lady I might add. And isn't that ribbon yummy???

I also made a card - yes it was a little late - for Patty over at Patty's Stamping Spot. I knew that I was not going to make the deadline she had, but I still wanted to send her a card.

Have you ever had something in your head that you wanted to create but it just does not come out that way with paper? Well, this was it. This is not what I wanted to make, but this is what came out.
I used Pixie Pink for the base card. I layered that with Close to Cocoa and then a piece of pink polka dot paper that I got years ago at a show. I wanted to add a length of ribbon but my first mistake was adhering it to the base card before I did so. I like to keep my ribbon tucked under the layers, not around the card so you see it when you open the card. Some people do that, and that's fine - I just like mine hidden.
I then stamped the cow from my TAC™ set An Udder Birthday and colored it with pencils and gamsol. I punched it out with my mega scallop punch and sponged some Pink Passion ink around that panel. I then punched a piece of Chocolate Chip paper with my Giga oval punch and layered the image on to that. I took my white gel pen and doodled around the Chocolate Chip layer.
I took my designer label punch and punched out a piece of Close to Cocoa cs and layered a punched piece of Chocolate chip with my 1 3/8" circle punch. I then stamped the words "an udder birthday?" with Pink Passion ink and punched that out with my word window punch.
Once all those layers were put together and adhered down I took the white pen and doodled around those layers. I added some primas and blingy brads to the card. But it still looked a little plain. So I took my Close to Cocoa pen and doodled around the outer edge.
Even though it was not what was in my head, it still worked out ok.
I wanted to show you a quick sneek peek at something that I'm making for my stampers 6 group. I like to include little things in with their orders, just to thank them for ordering. This set is from theangelcompany™ and is called Auld Lang Syne.
I made this little gift card holder out of an envelope. Neat, huh?? And all those credit card offers that you get in the mail - I seem to get them DAILY. Well, I save the "sample" cards that they give you. You know the ones that say "Joe Cardholder". Save them and you can use them in the gift holders as an example.
Well I hope that you have a great day ~ I think that our last few days of tornado watches are all called off. Today seems to be a good day - except for the humidity! But you make it as good or as bad as you want it to be, that's our choice.

Rarely do I make something that turns out exactly as it was in my head. I think your cow card is FAB!! I really like the layers of punches with the saying. I'll have to use that one!
Thanks for sharing!
