Thunder and Lightning!

Had a big storm roll through so shut down the computer before I could post!  Probably a smart move as someone less than a mile from us did get hit with lightning.  

Will try to post during the day Tuesday.

Signing off and listening to the rain.

All Geared Up

Another masculine card, that I just now as I type this, realize that I didn't make it a Birthday Card, which is what I need... argh... ha ha ha!  Well, I'll duplicate it tomorrow for a birthday.  Besides, I made a bit of a glue error that off set my front panel a bit.  I'll fix that too!

Basic Black - 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" scored and folded at 3" (OR you could start with 4 1/4" x 11", score and fold at 5 1/2" and then cut off 2 1/2" - which will be used as the front panel)
Basic Black - 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" (or the left over piece at the same size)
Whisper White - 2 1/4" x 4" (front panel)
Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4" (inside panel)
Classic Garage Designer Series Paper 2 3/4" x 4" AND 1" x 4" (inside)

The car is cut from the Designer Series Paper using the dies that go with this bundle.  The back of the car paper for this pattern is orange.  Look how awesome it looks behind the car when using dimensionals.  Almost like it is lit up.

Thank you for looking in today!  Have a Blessed Sunday!

Climbing Roses Sympathy

This beautiful stamp set is another that will be retiring and not returning.  I've barely had a chance to really play with it, so I better get with it!

I found out on Friday evening that the husband of a friend of mine, Lisa, passed away this week, so I decided that I could make a nice sympathy card using Climbing Roses and the words from Well Said, which thankfully is carrying over into the new Annual Catalog.

Whisper White Thick cardstock - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Shimmery White - 4" x 5 1/4", plus scraps for additional roses
Crumb Cake scrap for the Trellis
Old Olive scraps for leaves

Climbing Roses Bundle from the Occasions Catalog (retiring)
Well Said Bundle from the Occasions Catalog (carrying over!)

Memento Black

Stampin' Blends (light and dark):
Old Olive
Pumpkin Pie
Daffodil Delight
Cherry Cobbler

Thank you for looking in today.  Please say a prayer for Lisa as she's going through this difficult time.

Geared Up Classic

Finally making some masculine cards.  Several birthdays are coming up at the office that will be needing the masculine style, so here's one for now.

Real Red - 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 5 1/2
Basic Black - 2 3/4" x 4"
Whisper White - 2 1/2" x 3 3/4"
Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4" (inside panel)
Classic Garage Designer Series Paper - 2" x 4" (soon to retire!)

Real Red and Crushed Curry scraps for gears.

Stamps: Geared Up Garage Bundle - both will be available in the Annual Catalog, but will not be bundled, so be sure to grab it now before the end of May!

Designer Series Paper - This will also be retiring and will only be available as long as supplies last.

Inside I used the Happy Birthday from Blow Out the Candles. I think the font looks fairly close to the classic in Geared Up Garage.

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Friday!
