Late night cards

After cleaning the south end of the craft room today, I had to sit down and make some cards. I got out my September kit from Self-Addressed and made these first three cards. I love this color combination of cardstock, don't you? Yummy! The first card, Feeling Flushed?, is a Get Well card. The sentiment and the little birdie (Adelaide) is from justjohanna. The toilet stamp is from Impression Obsession. The sentiment inside says "Hope you're feeling chirpy soon" and it's from justjohanna. I just love this bra stamp. I don't use it very often because, really now, how often can you use a bra stamp?! In this first bra card, the bra image was embossed with blue embossing powder. The cards from the Self-Addressed kit have a hole in the corner of the card, so I had to work around it. I just used the cut out circle from the front cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card so it would show through the hole. I put a flower brad in the center of that circle before I adhered it. The second card is my favorite of the night. I used the same papers from the September Self-Addressed kit. The outside sentiment is from Hambo Stamps and the inside sentiment reads, "Happy Anniversary" ad is from justjohanna. This last card is a Thanksgiving card. The stamped image on the front is from Impression Obsession. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. I added a little bit of copper stickles to the pumpkins. The sentiment inside says "Happy Thanksgiving". Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I really appreciate you reading my blog and returning to see what I've posted.
