Grateful Heart

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Hope you have something fun planned!  I think we'll go to the Veteran's Breakfast at our local senior center!  That's always fun!  I have a couple of cards to share today! Hope you can hang in there! The first one is a simple card for the CAS Color and Sketches challenge:

I pulled out some Hand Penned DSP and did a bit of diecutting first, then a wee bit of stamping as well:

I added a scallop of Blushing Bride, some foliage from Sparkle of the Season and a sentiment from Banner year:

Of course, everything is better with a little sparkle, so I added a few sequins too!

My next card is for our pastor's son...he's a real cutie, and I wanted to make him an extra-special card, so following some directions for a Vertical Stair-step card on Splitcoaststampers, I came up with this:

Here's a side view:

The card base is Bermuda Bay along with some miscellaneous printed paper I found in my stash.  Sentiments and number are from Number of Years.  I added some Bermuda Bay and Poppy Parade balloons, punched with the balloon punch, and I hand-drew the strings:

Hope he likes it!  I am entering this at the Little Red Wagon challenge, where this week they want to "Hear It For the Boys", as well as Debbie's new-to-me challenge of Anything Goes with a Fun Fold for Creative Creases!  

And here's the birthday boy:

What a handsome boy and a wonderful card for him! I love it and I'm so glad I introduced you to Debbie's challenge! I have never seen your fold so it's a must try for me. TFS. Have a wonderful breakfast and thank you, John, for your service.

I love the pretty card you made for us at CAS Colours and Sketches LeAnne! The pretty paper makes a beautiful focal point but I love that you did a little soft background stamping too. The little tag makes the perfect sentiment! What a special card for the cutie with the massive smile too! I love the brightness of it, the clever shaped structure and the dynamic banners and labels and balloons - superb!! Vicky x

Debbie Mageed said...

Oh, LeAnne, I am so happy to see your wonderful birthday card on my challenge! It is fantastic and know it was appreciated by that cutie patootie birthday boy! Thank you for playing in my Creative Creases Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.
