I was asked to make cookies for the ladies at church today. Once a month they pass out cookies (Cookie Sunday) for the women who have completed their visit teaching and have reported it. I guess this works, because most of the cookies were gone.
This card is made from my new Papertrey Ink paper, ribbon and ink. I have never used them before and am glad I did. Their prices are reasonable. I got a little nervous, because I found out that their ink line is being discontinued until the new line is released this fall. I bought three colors of ink and only one was not at the same consistency as the other ones. It is still is fine to use and I am glad I got it. I tested the ink by making my own background.
The flower was cut from Sweet Treats cartridge and the edges were inked and curled.

Grandpa went to OSU, so it was only natural to make him a beaver card. Since he has a grandson who also loves the beavers, I thought this card was fitting. I don't have a Father's day stamp, but I just used what I had.
Grandpa beaver is cut at 3 inches
Grandson beaver is cut at 1 3/4 inches

I love this zebra card. I am not sure where my inspiration came from, but this is how I had been picturing it for as long as I could remember. I went to all my favorite blogs and could not find it. I could have sworn I saw a pink zebra card somewhere, but perhaps I was just dreaming. Anyhow, if I am leaving out credit to someone, I apologize. To me it looks like something "My Pink Stamper" would make. She is awesome if you have not already seen her work and best of all she has videos too.
Here is the site that inspired this dino:http://scrappinnavywife.blogspot.com/2010/05/dinomite-dad-card.html
As you can see they look nothing alike, but I like to record my inspiration, so I can go back and find them at any point in time.
I tore various strips of craft paper for the dirt. I just kept doing it until I felt it fit the card I was making.
Dino cut at 3 inches, used stickles on the spots.
Can I say this Panda is too cute. I just love him. Not thrilled how the bamboo turned out, but I will think more on that for next time.
I cut the panda at 3 inches and don't remember the bamboo. I think it was cut at 1 or 1 1/2 inches.
This deer card is my knock off version from this site: http://scrappinnavywife.blogspot.com/2010/05/deer-me.html
Though I really liked the one I tried to imitate and mine came out very different, I am quite pleased. The deer was cut at 3 inches. The grass, flowers, and clouds all altered to fit using design studio. Originally I planned to have only 3 clouds, but due to a stamping error the fourth was added to hide the mess up. I actually like it and cannot imagine there not being fourth cloud
The inspiration for this hippo came from this link: http://itsmesusanp.blogspot.com/2010/05/national-scrapbooking-day-challenge-12.html, though it is pretty much from the handbook.
