50 on the 50th

I have a great friend who has inspired me to get healthy. We walk our dogs almost daily and we've spent a lot of time bike riding.  We rode about 300 miles so far this summer and later this month she turns 50 and we are riding the most ever in one ride - 50 miles.  

For her birthday, I've made her the card below. It's not the typical loud big 50 that one would see, but I think it's ideal for our upcoming ride.

The stamp is a Magnolia.  Cute huh?

Lady Anne's challenges

As most of you know, I've been chosen to be on the design team for Lady Anne's challenges.  We've had some great sponsors lately and it's been a lot of fun to be on the team.  Last week I made the following card.  I wasn't used to using such a dark stamp, but I think it turned out pretty good as I kept with the black/white theme.

We are doing another card mid-month, which I promise will show much more colors!  Enjoy - and if you have the time, hop on over to Lady Anne's to see what the other Team Members have created.


Happy Monday all! I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. We had so many bar-b-ques and firework displays to see over the 4 day weekend that I didn't get much else done.  I do have several birthdays in July, so I have to get crackin'!

This is one I made yesterday for a gal I work with.  She's a great lady and, like so many other people, aren't able to function until she's had her morning coffee.  This is the card I'm sending her today. I'm certain it will make her smile.  It's a Rubber Necker stamp that I've had for quite a while.

I'm entering it in the following challenges:
One Stop Craft Challenge - anything goes
Paper Creator's Crafts - think Pink
