Just sharing a few miscellaneous cards that I made a while back.

Tweet Cards

Here's a couple of cards I made for a swap.  The theme was spring, and I thought birds fit the bill.

Spotlighting Fall

The two card swap that I join in every month had a Fall card using the spotlighting technique for August's swap.  I created three cards so I could send an extra to a friend.  I used a tree image and watercolor pens to color my spotlighted area.  This was a super fun swap.  I have always loved the spotlight technique.

Putting on miles

My boss used be a big race car driver and has just recently gotten back into it.  Plus, he collects a lot of old vehicles.  So, I thought an "oldometer" card for his upcoming birthday would be appropriate.

more folded books

I've been working more folded books and thought I'd share them with you.  The first one is one I made for a sister. 


This is one I made for my grandsons


and this last one is one I'm donating to an auction that raises money for the local animal shelter.  I'm currently working on one that is dog themed.

Flower Quartette

Here's a card I made using another new die.  I really love the simplicity of it.  



Here's one I made with just one of the flowers from the same die set.

Winter Holly


I recently  joined a two card swap and the theme was Christmas.  I made a background of different hues of blue distress inks and then used some white texture paste on a snowflake stencil.  Once that was dry, I used the same stencil and a damp baby wipe to create more subtle snowflakes. 
I used a new die of a holly branch stretching across three windows and fixed it to the background layer.  Then I just added some little red berries and some sequins and stamped a greeting.
