Hi Friends,
Lots happening at our house, so this will be short.
Today's card is what I would classify as masculine, but I guess it could be for a female as well.
The stamps are by Stampin Up.  Isn't the World Map a cool stamp?  I like it.  I cut two banners for the sentiment, and tucked the turquoise banner behind the black one.  Circle punched the compass, and put a silver brad in the center.  Background is a kraft colored card.  Quick and easy card.

Thanks for stopping by this weekend.  Hope you're staying cool!     Hugs, Geri


Hello Friends,

Hope you're all staying cool in this heat we're experiencing.  Sure wish we'd get some rain!

Today's card is one with a special fold.  I'm sorry the pics are a bit dark.  Stamps are by Stampin Up.  The set offers the dies for cutting out the cup, teapot, spoon, etc.  It's a really cute set.  The light pink background flowers were stamped with a light pink ink.  The teapot and cup were die cut out of a SU floral card stock.  The little teaspoon is a die cut and is silver, but didn't photograph well.  Looks white in the top photo, and too dark in the bottom photo.  Ugh...metallics and glitter are so difficult to capture in a photo, but you get the idea.  There's a string holding the tea bag tag.  A polk-a-dot black and white card stock was used behind the pale pink background flowers.  Love that paper.   Stampin Up offers wonderful thick papers that are a dream to work with.

Here's a pic of the card partially opened.

Happy Weekend Friends!

Are you ready for the 4th of July?  I didn't make a 4th of July card, but am sharing a girlfriend card that I hope you like.  The stamp is by Art Impressions.  I fell in love with the image, even though I'm not a quilter.  They look like they're having so much fun together.  :o)

Copic coloring on the image, and I added a piece of lace from my stash at the bottom of the image. Punched out some tiny flowers for embellishments, and the background paper is out of my paper stash.

Wishing you all a fun and safe 4th of July! Thanks for stopping by to visit. I'll be back later with another card. Hugs, Geri xo
