Cards To Share

It has been quite some time since I last posted here.  I've been busy taking care of my Mom who has dementia and who lives with us.  She recently was hospitalized for 5 days with a blood clot in her leg and you know what that means.....running from work, to home, to the hospital then home again.  I was pretty pooped out after those 5 days.  Good news!  She's better and back home.  Now we're doing the Dr. Circuit - 3 appointments this week, 2 next week and on it goes.  Craft time???? There isn't much, but I've squeezed out a little time in for it.

This Thursday, February 18, starting at 10:00 p.m. CST, there will be a Center Stage Spotlight Inspiration Blog Hop with Gina K Design new stamp designed to help the victims of the Haitian earthquake.  For each stamp sold Gina is donating $2.00 to the Red Cross for victim relief of the earthquake.  The awesome stamp is called "HOPE IS FAITH",  I hope you'll stop back tomorrow, or even some time during the weekend and see what everyone has created with this gorgeous stamp set.  

It was Valentine's Day and I wanted to give my hubby a card that would make him smile.  It did the trick and he loved his card.  
The stamps are from I Brake For Stamps
The card stock is Pure Luxury White from GKD
Nesstibilities Heart by Spellbinders
Assorted embellishments from stock and the punch is Martha Stewart Heart punch.

I have another card I'd like to show you.  I've been playing with different card types and this one is called Tri-Fold Card.  I'm showing the outside and the inside of the card I made for my daughter-in-law's birthday.  Let me know what you think.

Paper:  GKD Pure Luxury White, Ocean Mist and free digi download

Stamps: SmArtWorks   and Papertrey Ink
CuttleBug Embossing Borders "With Love"

That's it until tomorrow!  I hope you'll be back in the next few days to see the Inspiration Blog Hop creations.
Thanks for stopping by.
