I wanted to share this quick card to brighten a dreary day.  Yep it is one of those days – the TV is on and it has pretty much been weather reports all day – strong storms, tornado watches and warnings, rain, flooding, wind – everything all around us.  Our tornado sirens have gone off several times.  I took the dogs down to the basement for a while – Magnolia decided to stay down there curled up in the blankets.  I’ve gotten reports from Ryan at school and Tyler down at KSU.  Plus I have a new lake in the backyard and side yard and a little waterfall coming through the back wall.  It’s not over yet but hopefully will be soon.

So here is a bright cherry card to show you today – I took it with my cell phone so I hope the quality isn’t too bad.


This was a card choice today in my Card Maker’s class.  It’s pretty quick and easy to make and uses some of the Sale-A-Bration items that you can get free right now by placing a qualifying order.

  • Card Base is Rose Red
  • then a layer of Whisper White
  • a panel of Whisper white that was embossed with the Vine Street embossing folder
  • stamps from the Madison Avenue stamp set – stem in Lucky Limeade on Whisper White – punch with the 2-1/2″ circle punch
  • stamp the flower in Rose Red card stock in Rose Red ink and punch out with the 7/8″ scallop circle
  • stamp small flower on Pretty in Pink card stock in Rose Red ink and punch out with flower from Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack
  • crumple those, pierce a hole in the center and add a brad through the middle add above the stem with a dimensional
  • stamp a greeting in Basic Grey ink on the circle
  • Add the circle to the front of the card.

This cute idea came from one of the photos I took at Leadership.  I made a few changes but generally it is the same.  Cute card don’t you think?
