Well, here it is the day before surgery and we got the clearance to go for it yesterday. I won't be posting tomorrow as I will be spending the day at Thorton Hospital in LaJolla, Ca. It will be nerve wracking I'm sure but with God's help I will survive it. My husband is not at all concerned, he is certain everything is going to go great and he doesn't see what all the fuss is about. Men, go figure.

Anyway, I got creative yesterday because of all my fussing, and made 3 cards from a tutorial I found a while back on She has such beautiful cards on her site and I am on there often. This is one I really liked and it is easy to do.

inside of card.
I started with a piece of Rich Razzleberry, 4 x 12 for the card base. Cut 1 piece of Cottage Wall DSP 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and cut in two diagonially. 1 square of Old Olive 2 7/8 x 2 7/8. Go around outside with the Border Trim Corner Punch and Border Trim Punch, makes a nice lacey look.
Then do 1 square 2 3/16 x 2 3/16 of Rich Razzleberry. The circle is stamped on Naturals White with a stamp from Vintage Labels and cut out with the Scallop Circle punch. I used the beautiful wings embosslit for the butterflies from Rich Razzleberry cardstock. Finished it off with Old Olive 5/8 satin ribbon. Also used dimensionals. Words are from Picture This.

This one is done in Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip, with some retired dsp. I thought it was a little more masculine looking for a guys birthday. The bird on the front I cut out of the dsp. I sponged around everything with Chocolate Chip Ink.

This one is done in Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery and So Saffron with some retired dsp. I am trying to use all my old dsp up so I can justify getting all the new stuff. (lol)

Now on with the scrapbook I thought I would leave you a few more pages since there will be no post tomorrow and maybe not Friday. I don't know how long the hospital stay will be but I know I will be expected to spend my days there for as long as need be. Hope you enjoy the following pages and will get inspired for Scrapbooking Month.

Flower is the big flower from the Pretties Kit with a pearl in the center

Parts taken from the scrapbook kit along with the dsp riding hood red paper.

I just love the topnote die. It makes a good picture background. Paper is from Au Chocolat' DSP.

That does it for today. I should be back by Saturday, so have a great couple of days and I'll see you then.

Thanks for stoppin in!

Have a Blessed Day!
