What perfect timing! A dear friend turned 87 this week and I made this special card for him. He was a mechanic and really loves cars. I thought this classic fitted him to a T!


A birthday card for my granddaughter who loves cats and dogs. She is a teen now and I thought this young lady would be perfect.

I really love this color combination. I think it would be great for a man's card if I changed the flower into a motorcycle with yellow & orange flames!!


When I saw this sketch this card came to mind immediately. I wasn't sure what color the butterfly would be, but I sure do love the way it turned out.

I was so happy to see a challenge for a shaker card as I wanted to show off this card which I made for my son and his bride. I used the MFT wine glass shaker dies and pouches and added some clear drops for the inside. I love the elegance of the cream colored cardstock along with the gold touches. I hope they like it!

It is very rare that I use one card for 2 challenges, but today I'm making an exception. I was coloring some of the cacti from the MFT set "Sweet Succulents" when I realized that this cute little round cactus would fit so sweetly in the little square in the Freshly Made sketch and that the colors from the Color Throwdown Challenge, I just took the chance. I love the way it turned out. I love the colors together. I added some small leaves from the set stamped in VersaMark for interest on the blue section.

When I saw these colors, I thought immediately of an Iris. This stamp is from Technique Tuesday released last year. I love simple flower stamps. They make such a statement!
