With Sympathy and Thanks

 The above card is using this Mojo Monday sketch from December 1st and is submitted for the current challenge.  Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card. 

The above card was also using a past Mojo Monday sketch, being a past sketch it is not submitting on the Mojo Monday site.

Elephant birthday with balloons

Here is a card that I threw together using the following mojo monday sketch.  

This card really didn't photograph well.  The purple paper is a glitter paper.  The white paper between the purple and the pink (with the image) is pearl paper.  The elephant is paper pieced and different pieces and some of the balloons are on pop dots to add dimension.  Two of the balloons in the cluster are also glittered with a glitter pen (the pink and the green).  The pink frame with the image is also on pop dots.  I envision a number going onto the lowest balloon,  however, I'm not sure who will be receiving this card as of yet.  

Thanks for looking,

We have a wedding to attend on Saturday.  I visited mojo monday and found this sketch... 
This card is simple and in my opinion elegant, just like many weddings.  The stamps are all one set.  I used ribbon from my stash, a heart straight pin, embossing folder, black ink, white paper and silver pearled paper.  I also added two rhinestones- 1 on the flower of the congratulations frame, and 1 on the flower in the brides hair (which basically covered up the flower, but that's ok).

Have a great day!

Thank You

My hubby needed a thank you card for a male family member.  I used teresa collins 6x6 memorabilia paper pad, the green paper is from my scrap pile (I ran this through the sizzix square lattice embossing folder).  I trimmed the paper using a copper color marker.  The polka dots are part of a stamp.

I'm entering this card in 365 cards - day 360 anything goes.

Thanks for looking ~Maranda

Christmas Wishes

Here is a Christmas card that I made Grandma to insert some of the kids picture into. 

The designer paper is from Basic Grey Fruitcake collection, the stamps are from The Stamps of Life, I also used fine glitter on each light bulb.  The bow is recycled ribbon from a gift box. I hand drew the wire between the bulbs. 

Thanks for looking.  ~Maranda

Thank You

This is a card that I made for a teacher of my daughter's.  In my opinion, she went above and beyond doing something for my daughter and deserved a big Thank You.

This card is based on a sketch from 365 cards

I used a card base (white).   White paper -- for the backing of the other paper I used.  The paper pack I used for this card is by Cosmo Cricket - Mini Deck (6x6):  Cubierta Miniatura.  The strip down the middle reminded me of books on a book shelf, and this teacher is an English teacher (It fit perfect in my eyes).  I also used 4 small white brads in the corners.

Thanks for looking.
