Team Nicholas Father's Day Cards


Today I am sharing a few cards that I recently made for good cause :-)  First, let me tell you about Team Nicholas...

Team Nicholas is a charity that was started in memory of a very sweet and courageous boy named Nicholas.  You can read his story here.  Nicholas is the son of a good friend of mine from High School.  Many of my blog readers know that my own brother was also diagnosed with Leukemia as a young boy.

Team Nicholas does many things to support the families of children in similar situations.  For instance, for Mother's Day they delivered baskets to the mom's that were at the hospital - just a little something to try to brighten their stay.  So when my friend approached me and asked if I would make some Father's Day Cards to put with the Father's baskets - of course I was willing to help!

If you are interested in learning more about Team Nicholas, or would like to make a donation, please visit their website here:

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be sharing more cards from Team Nicholas throughout the weekend :-)

Merci Gift Cards, part 1

This has been a very busy week for me in my "real life" (i.e. the life I have to live when I am NOT stamping or being crafty!)  I work for a global company, and this week we had some very important 'higher ups' visiting.  One such person has become a good friend to me - and I wanted to thank her in a special way.

As it turns out - she is from France and I just HAPPEN to have a "Merci" stamp in my arsenal...funny how that works out right?

So I made a set of thank you cards for her - and these are the first four that I made.  (stay tuned for the second half!)

Thanks for stopping by!

MIM #64 - Using Color Inspiration


It's been awhile, but today I am participating in this week's Make it Monday - Using Color Inspiration.

This is the color palette I chose (how could I not? Winter Wisteria was my wedding color!)

...and here is my card... just in time for Mother's Day!

I used Ocean Tides as my card base, and stamped the frame directly onto the patterned paper - using Ocean Tides ink.  The sentiment was stamped using Smokey Shadow and Winter Wisteria ink.  The flowers were also stamped using Winter Wisteria, and the leaves are Simply Chartreuse.  A few white pearls finish it off :-)

Thanks for stopping by!
