May09 Cards #21-34

This is a card i got in a swap...It was just paper taped on the front and a stamp inside. I decided to add to it. I think it turned out cute!

This is a card i made with paper and stamped image from a swap. I love how it went together!

This also is a stamped image and paper from a swap. How cute is that stamp?!?!

These 2 are preprinted cards that i added to. I added ribbon and the stamped image.

I made 5 of these cards for a swap. It was a take on a card that was in Card Creations magazine.

These are 3 more that were made on preprinted cards. It is amazing what little it takes to make them look nicer!!

These 2 Hello's were from a stamped image swap. how funny that i am now using them for a card swap?!?!

These are 2 more cards from a stamped image swap that i got! I am having so much fun making these! Thanks ladies for the great images!

May 09 Cards #13-18

These are all versions on the cards that i made for a swap. I did the one on the other post for the 1st 4 cards, made a stamping mistake and covered with the little paper with Happy birthday on it and liked it better! There are actually 6 of these cards, but a couple are the same, thus not posted here.
SORRY about the pics being sideways.

may 09 Card #10-12

These are cards that i made with stamped images from a swap that i did and die cuts from another swap. I took the LO's for the 1st and 3rd from Christina at She used sketches from other blogs. I adjusted them some to fit what i had.

This is a page made with a kit from a friend. I believe this is years that i have had it and am finally using it!!

May09 Card #6-9

What do you think?? I really like it, simple but nice!

Garage sale find

This is a drawer unit i got today. I decided to put it under my desk for all the stuff that sits under there anyways. It has all my small pads of paper that do not have a theme or match other stuff. It also has my CTMH stamps and large pkgs of clear stamps. I am very happy with it!!

Butterfly paper piecings

Okay, so i made a couple more of these. What do you think? Be honest! I am not sure about the pink one. The middle one is the 1st one i made with a little added to it.
I may make something else for my swap!!

May09 Card #5-6

These are 2 cards i made a couple days ago. The flower and leaf and the little stamped words and flower tag were from a die cut swap. I like how they turned out.
I took the idea for the blue card from a friend, Cherie. Thanks for helping me figure out what to do with these!!

May09 LO #13

This is a LO that i made with the squares that i got in a swap probably 4-6 yrs ago!! I have always loved them, but kept waiting to use them. With a group i am on encouraging us to use what we have, I decided it was time!!

This is just another LO that i did. The pics go with the previous 2 pages. I used some items that we made for me years ago! YEAH!! I am getting these things used up!!!

May09 LO's #10-11

These are some more Challenge LO's. These are the items to include...the word Spring somewhere, Flowers, a bird or chick, brads. These are pictures from a trip to the Columbus Zoo. This was an easy, but fun layout to do.

May09 LO's #8-9

These are 2 Layouts for a Challenge. It was to use a page kit that you had or recieved in a swap. I went back a little further. This is a page kit that Karlene made for me in May 2006!!! I have always wanted to use it, but never found the right stuff! These are pictures of dd's brownin troop doing their pinning ceremony. this is going from Daisy's to brownies. I thought this would work well.

My cards for today May09 #1-4

These 3 cards are made from a swap on Sparkpeople. We did a Spring Cricut die cut swap. I love how they came out and the ladies did a great job with embellishing and embellishments!

This card is from a stamped image swap. We also got 6x6 paper from the person too. On this card i ended up using 2 of the papers for it. Such a cute stamp. This swap was on a yahoo group that i am on for cards and more!

Another Paper Piecing...

This is a butterfly made from scraps. I decided after someone did a LO with black and white butterflies to try some. I like how this came out. What do you think??
Darn, why does the pic look right when i choose it and then it is sideways when i post it?!!? Oh well. LOL!!
