Have a Super Birthday



This card is for the monthly swap that Pam hosts on SCS.  Each month we make 10 cards and include a matching envelope.  They can be any theme for any month.  All of the swappers are wonderful and I have received awesome cards each and every month.  

I made a birthday card using a new stamp set that I got earlier this month at the stamp show in Rockford at the Ranger Booth!

Here is the inside of my card:



I hope Pam and the others swappers like my card this month!

Creative Card Chicks Post



This is one of my cards for March's Monthly Challenge for the Creative Card Chicks.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month.  Sue is the hostess this month and sent everyone items to make two cards--this one and the one below.  Sue sent two kits--one with this darling bird image along with a tag kit.  She challenged us to make a tag and we could add it to a card.  The tag is actually green, though it photographed as black.




The Creative Card Chicks to post our cards between the 21st and 23rd of each month--so if you check the blogs on my sidebars today or in the next few days, you may see more of these wonderful creations!  Many of our members also post their card in our SCS thread--so you might find more there.  Kelly is up for the March Challenge so please come back to see what image she has sent!



Here is the inside of my first card.



This was a fun kit and I hope Sue and the other Creative Card Chicks like my card.

From the Herd


This card is for a Mystery Swap on SCS. A group of us are doing a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same mystery image, sent to us by the hostess. This swap was created by Forest Ranger—Jeanette and we are now in our 39th round!  Linda is the hostess this month and she sent everyone this great Stampin' Up image.  Linda will swap the cards and send everyone the next image, which is being sent by Carol. We then get to do it all again, for round 40! 

Here is the inside of my card:



I hope Linda  and the other swappers like my card.  If you check my sidebar on the left, you might see some other swappers who have posted their cards.

Up, Up and Away



It is March 15th of the month and that means I am showing you a new Dueling Darlings card.  For the March Challenge, Darlene and Laura Jean decided on the theme--Would You Like to Ride on my Beautiful Balloon!  Darlene is one of the Darlings and I am a part of the Diva team, which Laura Jean is on! 

Laura Jean sent us a couple of My Favorite Things hot air balloon images and three great sentiments.  Some of the balloons were already die cut and some were on stamped on a quarter sheet.  She also include some wonderful patterned papers and matching embellishments. Laura Jean said this is one of her favorite MFT sets and I can see why!  I used two of the die cut balloons and made a z-fold card.




Here is the inside of my card:

                                          

I hope all of the Darlings enjoy my card this month. Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month. 

There are a few members who do not have blogs:  Suzy and Terry S who both are on the Diva team, and Terry A, Paola and Debby who are Dazzlers.  You will be able to check out their creations in their SCS gallery, if you click on the link for their name.  All of the others should be found on my left sidebar.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!
