Hi, Happy Birthday to Taylored Expressions! They are having a big celebration for their 9th birthday! The Taylored Expressions 9th Birthday Sketch Challenge! They chose a sketch and are challenging card makers to use it as inspiration for their own cards.
I chose to make a card for the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. My husband’s daughter lives in Houston. While she was safe from the flooding, she is sad for her city and for Texas, as we all are. My card today is a dedication to those suffering, and to the volunteers who are helping.
I used the Taylored Expression banner stacklets 1 and the sentiment is from the set called shade tree scripture. I had the sticker in my stash and it was perfect! I intend to send her the card as soon as mail is established that she can pass on to a friend or another person who is in need. If you would like to donate to victims of Hurricane Harvey, here is a link to local Houston charities that she has provided https://www.houstoniamag.com/articles/2017/8/29/donate-to-these-local-houston-charities, there is also the JJ Watt relief fund, Samaritan’s Purse, and of course The American Red Cross. “Be Good!” Debbie
Hi everyone! Today is the long awaited Solar Eclipse! Where I live is not in the path of totality, but we will still get to see the partial eclipse. So, in honor of the event, I made this card:
I used gold paper and Spellbinders crown circles to cut the sun, and used another circle to cut the moon in black. I found the sentiment on the internet and printed it off on my computer. I used a little gold Delicatta ink and sponged it on the blue paper for some extra shimmer. Enjoy today and please be careful! We have one pair of glasses for my husband, and I am going to make a cereal box viewer that my sister found on the NASA website. You can find the link to the cereal box viewer here: https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/EclipseCerealBoxViewer.pdf

One of my favorite things to do is to make fun cards, especially for family ! Here are two that I made recently:
This is a birthday card for my husband, who has always wanted a black Mercedes! It doesn’t photograph the best because it is on black shiny paper, but I thought it turned out cute. Continue reading
Hi All, This is the last day for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop and I made one more card! Woo Hoo!
Of course you know that Mermaids need coffee too:
The mermaid die is from Gina Marie, and I added Martha Stewart iridescent heart glitter to her dress. Her hair is colored gold with Wink of Stella. The coffee cup is from a cute garage sale stamp that I stamped in gold Delicata ink, and cut out. I printed the sentiment from my computer and cut it out with a tag from Mama Elephant Slim Tags Trio. The starfish is from Reverse Confetti, again stamped in gold Delicata ink. The background paper is from Momenta and I crimped it to make it look wavy. The bubbles are from Pretty Pink Posh.
Be sure and look at the other cards in the Bloghop, they are amazing!!! Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop in the fall! “Be Good!” Debbie
Good Morning Everyone! It’s time for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop!
Each season we celebrate coffee, tea, and hot cocoa by making cards and papercrafts.
Here is my entry for today:
I wanted to do something sunny and fun! I just got the Sunshine Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions and have been anxious to use it. I printed the sentiment on my computer first, then cut it out. The Takeout coffee cup is from Impression Obsession, and the sunglasses are the little bits sunglasses from Taylored Expressions.
It’s a beautiful day in Ohio today, after a day of heat and rain, so we are heading out to enjoy some sunshine! Be sure and check out the other entries in the Bloghop, there is so much creativity and inspiration out there! “Be Good!” Debbie
Hi all! My husband and I have these really really cute Great-grandsons who love Pokémon! So G (what he wants to be called) was 4 on Friday. I wanted to make him a Pokémon birthday card, and the only character I know is Pikachu. (I need to better educate myself I think to keep up with these kids) I have the Favor Bag Accessory – Bunny from Mama Elephant, so I thought I could adapt it to be Pikachu.
I just cut pieces to make the black on the ears and made them a little more pointy, and hand cut the tail. The happy sentiment is from Memory Box. The inside sentiment I did on my computer and reads, Happy Birthday to Pika-you! I know he will love it! Happy Birthday G! “Be Good!” Debbie
