Project Thursday

This is the first Project Thursday and I have a few cards and layouts to share.  I have 2 layouts that I made to put pictures of us with the family pups. Rocky and Chloe aren't crazy about their pictures being taken but in the end we get great pictures!

The papers and stickers are from a $1.50 kit from Big Lots!  It had 6 double sided sheets and stickers, rub ons, Rain Drops,  and chipboard stickers. This page will have Rocky and me, and the next will have pics of Jess and Chloe.

Now for the cards!

I have started making the birthday cards for friends and family for the year. Oh, and of course there is Valentine's day which happens to also be Jess's birthday so I have been making a few cards to see which I like the best to give to whom...

Here are a few:
This first card was made for my brother Jonathan. His birthday was the 5th. He is a really great guy and my best friend. He turned 50 and commented when talking about his b'day cake that instead of putting on candles his wife should just set the darn think on fire!  Well I had to put lots of candles on his card!

But the best part of the card for me is the "sentiment" inside! I used the the Wild Card cartridge to cut the candles. I used the Auto Fill feature and it cut 18 candles on my paper. On each candle I used a yellow Micron Brush Art marker to color the "flame" and Worn Lipstick Stickles to highlight them.

The inside of the card, I like to hand write my sentiments so I wrote "So many candles... So little Cake!" Jonathan thought that was really funny!
The empty cake dish was also cut from Wild Card all of these are found on page 61 in the booklet.

This next card I made for a friend who love pink and I haven't spoken to in a couple of months. I miss chatting with my friend and sent this off today...

Inside I used the cut that says Miss Talking To You. This is another card from the Wild Card cartridge. and can be found on page 58. The paper is from A.C. Moore and it cuts really well on the E. the yellow is from a random stack of card stock that was in an old scraping bag that I found the other day.  I don't know who the manufacturer is.

and the last card is I think my personal favorite. I made my first poise flower and my first gate fold card so I hope you like it.
The front of the card wouldn't stay closed, I put the tab closure to help with that. It worked out really well. The paper is from K&Company the Wild Saffron pack. Very nice paper with a good weight and it cuts well. The heart was cut from George and Basic Shapes. So was the circles that I used to make the flower.  The stamps are from Studio G. I love those little stamps.  The insert is white card stock from A.C. Moore and I used the heart as a template to ink around it.

Phew.... I hope you like this and that you leave comments. If there is something that you would like to see let me know.
