Here are some of the crochet roses I crochet this past week.
They are about the size of a quarter.

Used the GrandCcaliber machine and the grand dies to cut the
shape of the card.

Just love the Grand Caliber Machine, so easy to cut and and emboss and the super large dies are awesome.

This is the card I made for my grandson,
Hope he will like it.
I have a picture of him playing soccer so thought this would be a good one to make.

It also displayed on the onecrazystamper site, where
I am a guest designer for May. It was a good theme, Boy card, since it's my grandson's birthday.

I really enjoyed making this card

This is the inside of the boy card.
These soccer balls are pockets and
in one I placed a note and the other
some cash for my grandson's birthday,

Here is the inside of the card. On the left side are 5 fishing poles and at the end of them are 5 small fish, which he can trade for the larger one to the right, when he pulls out the large fish. it has a his birthday gift in his belly....I think his 10 year old son will have fun helping him filet the fish to get the gift out.
Had to make a quick card for my SIL's birthday.
I am a bit late but I'm sure he won't mind once he sees what I
have for him inside the card.
He loves to hunt and fish, so
this fishing theme card is right up his alley.
Will take a picture of the inside and share it as well.

I used copic markers, except for inking the edge of the card
I used SU ink

Here's the inside of the card
I love using the mini calendars and making pockets using the
Nesties is nice for notes

I love making Easter cards,
these lilies are so easy to make and I think they add a nice touch to the card.

I have a group of 9 ladies coming on March 31st and they will be making this card.
My craft room will be full, I have had 7 students at a time but I don't think I have had 9 and with me it will be 10. I'm sure we will have a great time.

Recipe card 7 of 7 I love this kitchen Tilda, she ready to stir whatever with that big spoon.
Recipe card 6 of 7, I love the Chef Tilda and Edwin for recipe cards, was going to have her sit on the rolling pin but decided to have her sit on the ledge, I think she looks good right there
Recipe card 5 of 7, I had added the decorated hat pin but removed it for shipping cause I didn't want to damage the cards. Please don't be disappointed when you receive this card and the hat pin is not there. If you are the recipient of this card and you would like the pin, You could email me and then I would be happy to send it to you.

I do add some of my handmade hat pins to cards when I mail them but only if I mail a single card then I package it in a small sturdy box.
I love making the fancy hat pins for cards

Recipe card 4 of 7, thought I would try to make one mainly in blue.I was going to add something
in her lap but couldn't find the right thing.
Maybe next time.

Card 3 of 7, are those minis not the cutest? I absolutely love them
Here is card 2 of 7, just love the Magnolia images.
Here is my 1 of 7 recipe cards.
Flowers I made using the daisy pinches,

Made this card for " Queen of the month " in a group I'm in.
Sure enjoyed coloring her up. She looks like a Queen.

Coloring is done with Copic Markers

Close up of the pansies.
I had fun designing them along with many other flowers

Here's one of my first recipe cards with pansy flowers I designed using punches.
Wish I had known about Magnolia stamps when I first started designing recipe pages,
there are a couple of spots on this page that would look great with some Maggies on.

Roses in this card I made using the 4 leaf clover punch.
I really enjoy designing flowers using punches, and using
them on cards and recipe pages as well as scrap book pages.

Another quick and simple card I made before I discovered Copic or Magnolia stamps.
Just a simple quick card

Flowers for this card I made using the daisy punches and shaped the petals using a Deet tool and then layered them , before gluing them together I inked the flowers with Stampin Up ink.
Leaves are the branch punch by McGill .

Made this card before discovering the Magnolia images, a mini image would look really nice in opening part of this card.

I made this card 2nd week of January 2011,
colored her with copics

Flowers are from WildOrchardCrafts

For leaves I used the Martha Stewart
Branch punch
I inked all the edges with SU inks
and colored the images with copics.

I used the MS branch punch for the leaves
Here's a close up of the flowers from WildOrchidCrafts

Colored her with copics, still need plenty of practice
I am enjoying coloring with copics.
Inside of card, using Nesties I created pockets
to slip the note into.
Added a mini calendar on one and I think I just may add a mini Maggie on the other side yet.
I think that would finish it off better
