Long time no see!

Hello there. I'm not sure if anyone will see this, because I have not been active in blog land in such a looong time! I have had a busy year! We moved (same city), my husband had back surgery, I did some traveling (in the US) etc. I HAVE made some things, but I just haven't posted stuff. So, anyway. . . Here's some pictures of things I've done during the past year.
I used NBA Team Dimensional Stickers on this first card. I made it for my neice Sally, who loves the Lakers! It's the first "pop-up" type of card I've ever made. The basketball is a "slider" which goes in and out of the hoop.
Next is a get well card I made for my neice, Sunny. I made a rosette (here's a tutorial) with a Martha Stewart edged punch, a big Favorite Findings button, some vellum, scalloped Spellbinder shapes, and some old lace that belonged to my husband's grandmother. I also used Tim Holtz distressed ink Dried Marigold for inking edges.
Here is another get well card I made for a little girl, Elizabeth, who had to have brain surgery. I stitched the wavey edge of the card with embroideray floss and I used several fun embellishments.
A Get Well Card for my son's wonderful teacher, Liz:
Next is a tri-fold, or shutter card I made for my good friend Gloria for Thanksgiving. Here is a tutorial for it on You-tube.
Using a Spellbinder die, I made a little "plaque" for her based on I Timothy 4:7. It is removeable; not secured into place. A fun card to make.
And here's the first Hanukkah card I've ever made. It was for my cousin, Denise, in San Jose. The iris folding pattern is from Circle of Crafters website, and the menorah is a pattern I got from Silvia at Crafts U Print. I used a craft knife to cut the patterns out. I used origami foil paper for the folds. I used a paper punch for the flames to the Menorrah on the inside of the card.
The next one was for my friend, Sonya's baptism. I used a little iris folding kit from Dedra's
The next post is a project I did for my grandson, Tanner.
Thanks for looking and Happy Crafting!

Story Book for Tanner

This was a big project I made for my little grandson, Tanner. I made it for his birthday and based it on the things that he loves. The book is an 8X8 photo album. There are lots of pictures!
