Another Tri-Fold Card and a few others

Happy Monday. How was your week last week? Ours was abit hectic. You know some times life likes to throw you a curve ball. Well I think last week was one for us. But we managed to make it through (alive even)..lol...But anywhoo, here are some cards I made last week and just wanted to share with everyone...Enjoy!!!! And I would love to say a HUGE HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DEBBIE (from Nebraska--as our little one calls her...lol...she's one of my lurkers...lol..) Happy Birthday girl. I hope you have a wonderful day filled with alot of memories to cherish!!!! Love ya girl!!!!! This one is a wedding card. I have absolutely no where for this to go, but I just felt the urge to make it. You ever get like that? I have always loved these 2 Magnolia stamps and thought they would make for a great wedding card. And I so love using feathers. I think they go hand in hand with the bling that I am very addicted to right now. What do you think? Not to mention, it's another tri-fold card. These are so fun to play with. Thanks Pam for enabling me girl. You were right, I would be addicted to making more of these cards. If you missed my last one just scroll down and you will see a link for the instructions on how to make these adorable cards. I'd love to see yours if you take the plunge as I have. I kept it simple again. The paper is from Making Memories Wedding line, the greeting stamps and butterfly are from See D's, buttons from Tim Holtz line, the hanging acrylic hearts from Heidi Grace, bling from Recollections, bench and silver ribbon from unknown source.
don't know why the color on her face is different from his. It really doesn't look like this in real life...lol...
just thought I'd do a close-up of the hanging hearts. On the frosted ones I added 2 hearts back to back with the fishing line in between..
this was just a simple card I made using the Christmas Magnolia stamp where she's holding the candle in one hand. I think this one is so diversified that you can really use her in so many different cards. I just like to cut the candle off and have her holding different things.
here's the inside. I have been wanting to use this stamp forever. It's all one stamp but I broke it up and used part on the front and the rest on the inside of the card. It's from Inkadinkado. It's the one with the quotes from kids. I added the little girls name and age onto the back of the card to give her the proper credit. Just a simple one, but I really do like the outcome.
here's one I made for the spring challenge but realized it needed to be spring. I used the right colors, it just wasn't a spring card. The quote is from Tim Holtz.
And here is a Sugar Nellie card. And I have to say that I just love this card. I don't know what about it that really makes me love it, but I do. The coloring isn't the best (as most of my cards aren't yet) but I just like the whole card itself. The striped pattern paper reminds me of my Grandmother's duvet cover she had on her bed in the summer. And this stamp is just so cute. Although the little froggie got lost in the coloring abit. I have to say I really love how her face turned out. Aged and rustic, kind of like her dress. It's another simple card and I hope that the recipient will enjoy it to...
Well that's all I have for today. I hope everyone has a lovely week ahead. We are suppose to get a mixture of rain and snow today. More rain that anything I think. And to those of you that just received the snow, you know, the MAJOR inches, I feel for you. Try to stay warm......Hugs from a thawing out Charm City...

What fun cards. Each one has so much detail and so many fun things to look at. The wedding card is so elegant and I love how you repurposed Tilda holding her candle. I laughed with your comment about the wedding card...I just made one, too. I have no forseeable weddings to attend in the future, either. LOL. Gina L

Me again! Between your cards and your entertaining posts, I just had to share a Sunshine Award with you, Nancy! And that last card with the Sugar Nellie was a real enabler!
