I wish I could take credit for all of this card but I cased most of the front from  the May 2010 Stampin Success. I used some different stamps and different tag to change it a bit but loved the overall idea, thanks StampinUP.  But the inside was my idea, how do you like?  I like using tags and dimensionals.  The two tags and the balloons are cut with a sizzix die then applied to the card.

This card I made for a lady in my building who treated everyone in our building to a steak dinner/potluck this month. She did an awesome job and decided she needed a special card to compensate for her kind deeds. I did them in two different color combo's. This card was cased from the March 2010 Stampin Success. I changed it a little and added my own inside which is the center picture.

This card was for my special friend Clara who turned a happy "89".  She has a cat called "Miss Kitty" who is a gray tiger kitty so just had to do a cat card for her.  I really remembered her birthday but wanted to make a belated card since I do not have to many of them as samples.  I was tired of the simple rectangle size so decided to use my Carousel Notes, love scallopes.  Tried something new with how I attached the two cards together to open.  I used the  round tab punch, it worked great.

Finally my Joker birthday card, this one was so much fun.  I just love this stamp set.

  1. Wow Kathleen, where do I start??? Some of your best cards here. Absolutely love Horse Birthday and Joker cards. Great ideas and great layouts. I am so sad that the Game Night set will be retired in a couple of days -- I hardly got to use it and I know it would have went over big at one of my card classes.

  2. These are all great. Love the different layouts and the colors are well cordinated. My Fav's are the bird ones, Congratulations and the carousel card. I also love scalloped circles. I'm glad you told me about these as I didn't see them before and as Sandi said "Some of your best cards" so far. Catch you later.
