Card for Jessica

Hi there! I'm participating in Kristina and Jennifer's  
Summer Card Camp 2011. This is the color combo for this first week.

My Sweetie asked me to make a card for Jessica, his former manager and mentor, who is leaving the company. Since a group of engineers are going to sign the card, I made it larger than a standard A2 card size.

The stamps are from Lawn Fawn (Jessie's ABCs and Lunar Lights) and Papertrey Ink (Polka Dot Basics).

The lanterns are paper pieced with papers from Stampin' Up and Papertrey Ink. I added Diamond Glaze to each lantern to give it shine before adding them to the card with mounting tape. I also added baker's twine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Lucia - June Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hi there! I wanted to join the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop today. I was in such a rush earlier that I had to photograph my card on the dashboard of the card while we drove to drop off the Little Guy at a party and meet up with Lucia. The card was inspired by this beautiful image. I loved the stripes of color and choose to use that as my main inspiration.

I made this card for Lucia, one of my favorite people. Her birthday is today. She is my husband's first cousin, but I love her like a sister. Such a sweetie!

I used the Birthday Bash Sentiments stamp set for the sentiment and the butterfly image comes from the Butterfly Wishes 
stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great one.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

I hope your day is going well. You're going to see a lot of thank you cards on my site. I made 18 of them a few weeks ago to thank the wonderful parents and staff who made my birthday celebration very special. Here is one of them.
The stamp is Technique Tuesday from the A Million and One by Ali Edwards. I love her handwriting! The gorgeous papers and ribbon are all from Stampin' Up. The pearls are from Want 2 Scrap.

The Little Guy is waiting for me. We are going to watch a movie before bedtime. I love Netflix! We are going to watch Free Willy. Good night!

Happy Father's Day

Hi everyone. This is the Father's Day card I made for my sweet dad in New Mexico.

It started with a sentiment design from the Silhouette Studio store. I love welded-type words. The papers are from Love Letter Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up. I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching to the sentiment. The heart and the sentiment are popped up on dimensional tape. I also added faux stitching around the heart with a black Copic pen.

Thanks for stopping by!

Best Wishes Pennie!

I'm hoping you're having a great day in your part of the world. Yesterday we had a little party at school for a teacher that is transfering to a different school.

This card started with some beautiful Crate Paper. I just added coordinating buttons from Papertrey Ink and stamped the sentiment using Jessie's ABCs from Lawn Fawn.

We have friends visiting from Texas and are off to the Monterey area for a day of fun. Adios!
