Suburbia - Card #2 for Save A Vet Benefit

As I explained in a previous post, I donate cards for a raffle each year for a Save A Vet Benefit. I made the second set of cards using the Suburbia Cricut cartridge:

I used the 6x6 Crate Paper Farmhouse pad along with the Simon Says stamp set titled BE. The word bubble is a die from My Favorite Things. Pop dots, seam binding, memento black ink and a border punch from Stampin Up to complete this set.

I will be using a couple more Suburbia images for additional cards just need to work out the design and sentiment.

Birthday Cards for Grayson

There is a beautiful little boy who was going to be celebrating his 1st birthday in the hospital being treated for leukemia. Well, card makers gather round Erin Lee Schreiner posted about this on Facebook and asked for us 
to flood this little guys room with some cards.

Here is the card that I put in the mail:

This card was assembled using an old kit that I had from Bo Bunny. I added a 
#1 thicker and used stickers on the inside along with a message for him and his family.

Definitely praying for them all as we know our God is the ultimate healer.

My Favorite Things Birthday Card

Hello Again,
We celebrated my MIL's birthday this past Sunday and I made this birthday card for her:

Are these sunflowers not gorgeous!! This is a stamp set from My Favorite Things called Splendid Sunflowers. I inked this up with Distress inks Wild Honey, Crushed Olive and Tea Dye. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set called Signature Greetings stamped with Memento Ink Rich Cocoa. Again, I used a DCWV pre-made card base, twine from My Favorite Things and a button from my stash.

I decided to make another card using these beautiful sunflowers along with the Chalkboard Greetings set:
The button and twine are from the MFT boutique as well.

Blessings, Jenny

Dr. Checkup - Get Well Cards

Each year a friend of mine throws a Save A Vet Halloween benefit. For the benefit I put together 2 scrappy baskets full of some supplies and cards. Well although we are just at the beginning of September, I have 40 (2 sets of 20 cards each) cards to make for this so I figured I better get started.

The first set I made are Get Well cards. I used the Cricut cartridge Dr. Checkup for these:

I used my gypsy and E2 machine to cut out the doctor from the Dr. Checkup cartridge. The card base is a pre-made card from DCWV, the polka dot and striped paper is from a 6x6 pad from American Crafts called Dots & Stripes. The stamps are all from a Lawn Fawn set titled On the Mend and were stamped using Stampin Up ink Old Olive and Garden Green. With the addition of some floss and pop-dots I called these cards done.

Blessings, Jenny
