Duck Dance Easter card

I made this cute Easter card today using Sassy Cheryl's precolored image called "Duck Dance".  Card stock, decorative papers, sentiments, and ribbon are all from PaperTrey Ink.  Measures 5" x 5",  I seem to hooked on these square cards, also Nestabilities.  I just happen to have the right color pearls to embellish this card.

Of all the gifts Life could send

I've just been waiting for Cheryl to add this Tricycle Fun precolored image to her store and I knew I had the perfect sentiment to use.  I have this on a rubber stamp but it was to big so I typed it in.  (Just gotta love computers)  Papers are all DCWV, I've used so much red for my cards that I wanted to go with other colors and the blue just about matches the image perfectly.  Went through my stash so I could use some ribbons that I've had for a long time and found this gingham brown ribbon.

This is a great card to send to a friend or even your sister.  I may have to make another to send to my sister, reminds me of when we were kids.  Send for Birthday, Thinking of You, Just Because, or remembering back to the "Good Ole Days"!

One of these days I'll try coloring in the images myself but I need to collect more Copic markers for that.  Thank you Cheryl for the Precolored images in your store, I need more hours in the day.

Happy Shamrock Day

I listed this cute Happy Shamrock Day card in my Etsy store.  This little Shamrock Bear is from Sassy Cheryl's precolored images called The Saint Bear.  Popped up the shamrock he is holding and added a Happy Shamrock Day tag on the front.  Glittered shamrocks in each corner, I picked them up at the local craft store.  Solid papers from SU, the decorative paper is from Heidi Grace Designs.  I finally punched around the entire square with a MS punch and it actually came out right. I love MS punches but I always have a hard time punching all the way around and have it right.  I especially like this punch.  Enjoy!

PS:  I've been going a little crazy over on Etsy the past couple of days.  Etsy has changed somewhat, we now have teams and I have found so many shops over there.  Etsy has some great crafters.

I started a Facebook Fan Page for Unique Greetings by Susan K.  If you would like to take a peek, you can see it here.

Birthday Card for Mom

Making more cards made to put in my Etsy shop.  Birthday cards just for Mom.  These images are from Fred She Said, popped up on a scalloped lace medallion,  a new die from Nellie Snellen.  I just love the flower dies from Joy Crafts, inked the edges and added brads to coordinate with the papers and cardstock from PaperTrey Inks.  Inside greetings are from Outlines Rubber Stamps and Stampin Up.

Vintage Truck-Happy Father's Day cards

I've had these images of vintage trucks from Fred She Said that I have been wanting to create cards with.  Cards for men always seem to be harder to make and I think the trucks are perfect for Father's Day cards and one I made into a Birthday card.

New Valentine Dies

A card I made a few days ago with my new Nellie Snellen Valentine Dies.  Papers from PaperTrey Ink, I love their papers.  Sentiments are from Inkadinkado and Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I have made so many cards with bright colors, I wanted to make something in softer colors.

I did not get to many cards made with these dies due to having the flu for about 2 weeks so this has put me behind in my cards and also filling my dog coat orders.  On the mend now and hoping to finish the coat orders this week so I can get in to some serious card making.  My niece also wants me to scrapbook her wedding photos so there's another job to do.  Enjoy!
