A Dozen Cards Kept Me Busy Along With Stampede Make And Takes

Sometimes you just don't have access to your cutting machines or all of your supplies so you need to work with what you have on hand. Recently my mother had surgery and I went to her home to assist her while she was recovering. I spent the weekend and took my handy bag, some markers, colored pencils and some digital stamps and went to work creating in a very quiet setting. My father sat in the dining room with me and we talked while I colored and readied my stamps on the first day while mother slept soundly in another room.

Thought you would like to see some of the close ups of the artwork. Look at the little buttons on his jacket I used Glossy Accents on them and the Hi.
The little puppies were just adorable and can be used for just about any sentiment. After printing off my computer I colored him with markers and shaded him with colored pencils. Then I used Glossy Accents on the nose and eyes to make them look wet and then did a fussy cut to be able to just pop dot him on the card.
Yes I spent Friday afternoon coloring and preparing all these little pieces of digital art to make cards on Saturday. The following day she sat at the table with me and did a little sewing while I continued cutting and pasting and using the materials I had on hand. I hope you enjoy the little video showing you the cards I made.

This is a little video of the cards I made on Friday and Saturday afternoon.

These next couple of photos are some closeups of the make and take items while I was working on them.

Isn't this a great little tag to present a photo in? This is one of the make and takes at the Dallas Stampede that I did not have time to complete.
This is also another make and take and is a wonderful bookmark. I didn't do it the way they show as I like my book marker better!!
Don't you just love this flower? It was the first make and take I received and I just love it! Please click on the photo to see an enlargement of the flower.
On Sunday my Mother felt well enough for a little ride to Joann's so she went to the fabric section and I went to the paper section of the store! LOL When I got back from the store I put together this little shaker card I had cut and ready for the Stampede in Dallas but never got put together as we ran out of time. I hope you enjoy this card... I just love shaker cards as they are so cool and really make the recipient feel special.
I sure hope you enjoyed today's post... I know there sure was a lot to look at! A full bakers dozen in cards and 3 make and takes to boot. Don't forget you can click on any photo to enlarge it if you want to see in more detail.
Thank you for your sweet words of encouragement, your comments continue to inspire me!
