Something Other Than Christmas

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by!  Remember when I posted the cards that I made for our neighbor with the heart bride and groom? I told you that was the last you would see it for a while. I guess I knew then, that wouldn't be entirely true. I knew in April that I had an anniversary card to make for our Disney enthusiasts Bob and Kathi. I wanted to put a little different twist on it using the Mickey heads cut with My Cricut--- 
I knew last month when Gina K of Stamp TV posted a video for the "Sunshine Background", I wanted to use it to make a card for my mom. Here is what I came up with. The flower and clouds are dies from My Favorite Things and the doily is a die from The Scrapping Cottage. The sentiment is computer generated---
I always try to keep a few quick Thank You card in my stash. I used a Michael's $1 bin stamp and A Cuttlebug embossing folder for this one--- 
Here's a Tiddly Ink image that I colored with Copics and paper pieced the dress. I added 2 different EK scalloped edge border punches, a Nestibility heart and and a few brads---  
I used a embroidery floss bobbin as a template for this card. I inked and added the swirl and flower from an EK  punch and added a pearl and embroidery floss The sentiment is computer generated, cut with an oval and inked---
That's it for now. I've got a few Birthday's cards to do for September then I'll be finishing up my Christmas cards. Working on my Christmas the whole month of July has really given me a good head start and I had so much fun, I want to finish them. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day, I'll see you next time...have a great week.

Kelly, these are all absolutely wonderful! Of course, my fav is the one you did for your Mother - the sun rays are awesome, but the personalized message is sooooo meaningful and I know it meant a lot to her. Super thank-you card too. Great job and I hope you are holding up ok with all that is going on! Hugz!

I just LOVE these cards Kelly. They are all so beautiful. You know I especially like the one with the Mickey heads. The colors you used for your mom's card is so pretty. I love the background, you did a really good job on it and the sentiment is perfect. All the thank you cards are as always PERFECT!
