This card is different than most of the cards I get from my friends. I usually get stamped cards, but this is one of those multi-layered 3D cards and it was created by my friend Betty, from Delaware, for my birthday.

Thanks Betty! This is a pretty card.


I have never created this type of card. Have you?

Have a blessed day,

Continuing with the ocean theme that I have going on my blog this week, I decided to post this Orca card by my friend Jeannie.

I haven't used the dies that create the medallion. They look interesting. I think I could figure out many ways to use them.


Thanks for the fun card, Jeannie.

Have a blessed day,

Tuesday Tutorial #106 Seas the Day

Last week, when it was over 100* for 3 days in a row, the beach was a very popular place to be. It was still in the 80's there, but that is wonderful weather on the Oregon Coast.
I always enjoy going to the coast and would love to have been there last week. The traffic was very bad; bumper to bumper for most of the way between Beaverton and the beach. That's the main reason that I didn't go.

I just stayed home and created a beachy card instead.

Or, I will send you the Tuesday Tutorial by email if you will send me your email address requesting to be added to my Tuesday Tutorial list (please send it to me privately to the email listed in my contacts and put in the subject line "add me to TT list").

Here's a beautiful card by my friend Jeannie.
It is a simple-to-create Christmas card.
I thought since it is July, I would start posting occasional Christmas cards that my friends have sent. I am already getting Christmas theme Tuesday Tutorials ready to post and creating Christmas cards for my class attendees so they have ideas for their Christmas cards.


This cabin scene is so peaceful. It goes beautifully with the sentiment.

This card is a valentine that my stamping buddy, Susie, sent me. I was looking at it today and thinking that it could also be transformed into a June strawberry card.

Susie, put some green caps on the red hearts, maybe using a flower punch, and create a strawberry card for me! You know how I love strawberries! ☺

The strawberry stands are set up in my neighborhood and ready to go. I can hardly wait.

Here's a card that speaks of spring. It is from Jeannie. She used the twisted paper technique to create a flower to embellish this card. Have you tried this technique yet? I have not tried it. I think it would be cute for a special scrapbook page.


Jeannie also distressed the edges of the leaves and crumpled them for some added interest and texture. The white box on the upper right could also be used for a sentiment.
