A few more cards to start off the New Year

Hello again Peeps.  Today I want to share 3 cards, all made for Friends.  Two are birthday cards and one is a Sympathy card.   First up is the Sympathy Card, background was again made with my Brusho Powders, Can you tell I really like using these, LOL.  Then stamped the flowers and butterfly in versa mark, black ink.  I then fussy cut a shape for the sentiment and stamped it in the same black ink.  Attached sentiment to card with pop dots. 

 UP next is a birthday card for Man who is a friend of a friend and we do not know to well as of yet, but we where invited to help celebrate his birthday so I  needed to make a card.  All I knew is that he loves to feed the deer in his yard so hence this card came to mind.  The tree die is form Taylored Expressions and the deer is Spellbinders.  And the Happy Birthday dies I can not recall....sorry

And now for the last and my favorite card....  This one is for My Mom's best friend, Jean, who we had a surprise party for earlier today.  And she loved the card! YAY!   I used an edibility's die from Crafter's Companion for the top and bottom back pieces.  Added some bling stones after I embossed the pieces with a lattice folder.  I put the bling where the lattice crossed.   I also embossed some vellum with a floral embossing folder and topped the other to die pieces to it top and bottom.  Then added the flowers (added fine glitter to them) and a Hat Pin with some spare beads to match.  Also stamped the sentiment in black versa mark ink.  I think that's it for this card.  It's one of my favorites.  And Jean loved so it made me happy.................

Well here's to another year of card making, so far so good.  Have a wonderful Sunday and hope you are having fun doing what you love....

Until next time
