"Thinking of You" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
Many times when I am kind of stuck in a rut, I go back and look through my albums or box of cards for a little inspiration. I usually can find something that will at least help me get started on my next project. Like this card, for example! I started this card by using the same design as I used on the "Congratulations" card above. Obviously, it evolved into something completely different! Thanks for looking!

"Congratulations" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I have a cousin who got married over Thanksgiving weekend. The wedding was in Rhode Island and we could not make the trip. Confession: They just celebrated their 6 month anniversary and I have not yet sent a gift. So the inside of this card says, "Happy 6 month anniversary!" and I have a gift card to include. Better late than never, right??! I tried to make the card extra cute so that hopefully she won't be too mad that I am sending it so late!

“Congratulations” card, by Sheri Feypel.
I really love the extra fun that the Feathers add to projects. They add a splash of color and texture that is exactly what some of my projects need. I designed this card around the feather and added a few of the Cute Cuts for the sentiment. Believe it or not this card came together quickly for me!

“Boy” card, by Sheri Feypel.
I recently bought a mustache punch and I am obsessed with it! I want to use it on everything right now, so I created this Boy Card. I was trying to keep it simple and clean with only a few layers. I also had to work my foam adhesive in there popping each mustache off the card.

“Happy Birthday Wishes” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
It seems like squares are all the rage these days and I just had to play along! Using a 1.25" square die cut, I created a quilt of colors from the Birthday Girl Collection. After mounting them onto a piece of cardstock, I machine stitched down the center of each row. I kept the top simple by adding on a couple of chipboard stickers and a "wishes" banner under the die-cut shape.

“Happy 4th Of July” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
A small piece of feather gathered and tied made the cutest plume effect to the top of the chipboard firecracker! I attached the feather to the chipboard using a Ultra-Thin Glue Dot. I built a 4th of July collage using several components from the Alpha+Bits and Just Write Journaling Stickers. So happy and festive, and I love the idea of displaying it on our Patriotic buffet table. Bring on Summer!

"Celebrate" card, by Wendy Wagner.
I decided to do a smaller card for this. I think it would be a fun card to share with someone hosting a party for the 4th of July or Memorial Day! I placed the Feathers to look like fireworks & added some stickles to the chip shapes. Thanks for looking!
