Graduation Card

Here is a card I made and didn't get in the mail this summer, so I thought I would share it here. It's nothing fancy, but I have found making cards for men is slightly challenging. They don't seem to appreciate flowers and glitter as much as women do.... Go figure!
I hand made the little diploma with a small piece of wide white satin ribbon. Trying to tie the gold ribbon was a challenge though!

CPS Challenge 88

Ok, here is my first attempt at a challenge. It was fun! I have been watching everyone doing these challenges and am totally amazed at how different each card looks. So I had to see what I could do. I'm still in the minor leagues but having fun with it.

Spring time wagon

A very sweet and talented someone gave me some stamps and this little wagon was one of them. I had a lot of fun with this, I stamped the little wagon on plain card stock, cut it out, colored it in and raised it up a little.

Loss of your dog

Here is a card I made in about 15 minutes today. An employee/friend of mine had to have her dog put down today, so I wanted to send her a little something to let her know I was thinking of her. So I whipped this together on my lunch break. Notice the hint of paw prints on it.

Very first posting!

Well I have taken the plunge and am going to start my own blog for my crafty stuff. I am a beginner when it comes to scrapping but I love doing it. I will hopefully find (make) more time to scrap and be able to post regularly.

I love running around to other scrappers blogs and seeing all their ideas and techniques, so hopefully I can get some feedback on mine and improve a little.
I am in no way an expert at this and don't keep track of who's products I use. This is a card, I stamped the background with little flowers and colored in the centers. Can you find the one that is different? This was done on purpose, it stands for the person I miss and how that one person will always stand out above the rest.
I'm not 100% happy with the overall card, but considering I did this while camping and had very limited supplies, it turned out better than I expected.
