As requested, this is what the pen looked like BEFORE I "papered it up" - LOL I put the tape measure there so you could see approximately how long the pen is. They're very small ones.
Here is a photo of what my pen looked like inside the machine. LOVE THIS!!!

Anyway, here is the card I threw together tonight. The paper is from Paper Pizazz. I think I bought it at Michaels on clearance when they did the 7/$1 paper a week or two ago. The cake is a stamp that I stamped, cut out, colored and added Flower Soft to. The bead accents on the paper, I glitzed up with Stickles! The "Happy Anniversary" I cut in SCAL with Wrexham font (love that font!) and used chalk ink to make it gold. The envelope was a pre-made A2 card envelope that I added the Paper Pizazz paper to.
It's not dry yet, but I'll get it out in tomorrow's mail. Better late than never, right? ;o)
Psst, if you don't know where to get Stickles and Flower soft, click here. Kim is the owner. Tell her Billie sent you. She'll take good care of you!
Thanks for looking!

Okay, these cards were made for the 'boys' in the hospital, since someone said she leans toward boy cards more because she only has boys. SO, this card's for you!!!
Nothing earth-shattering! Blue card blank, blue patterened scrap paper from a small paper stack, kiss (Posh Impressions 1994) stamped and embossed with silver powder and ivory ribbon. Very simple!

Nothing fancy, but I'm trying! :o)
Puppy Love - letters were done with the Paper Pups Cricut cart. The hearts were embossed and then Stickles were placed over the top. Very simple!

This card was made using 2 different pinks from my FAVORITE paper-pack! It's from Michaels and it's the "Baby Girl" pack. The rose color goes with SOOO many things! The stamp I also got from Michaels around Christmas in the Valentine's section. I want to say it was a $1 stamp and I got that much fun out of it tonight. The heart is glitzed with Stickles. This is the first time I've used them, but they are SO fun. Stay tuned for more projects with these! :o)
Here is another card I made with the same rose colored paper listed above and a deep purple, which is also from another of my favorite paper packs. It's called "Purple Passion" and is also available at Michaels. The stamp is the same as the one above, but with a slightly different color of Stickles. I did a few other cards as well that have other stamped images, but these were my favorite 2.

I think the card turned out okay! :o) And even if it turned out looking HIDEOUS, my grandfather would still LOVE it because it came from me. LOL
This picture turned out a little blurry, but I included it because the colors were closer to the 'real' colors than the one below.
I used white cardstock for the card blank, a pastel blue for the background on the front, a pastel yellow cut with a scalloped edge on the Cricut (via SCAL) and green pastel for the top piece. I used my corner rounder to round the edges of the green paper and embossed "Happy Birthday" with blue. The ribbon is blue & yellow plaid. Who knows where it came from, but my grandfather LOVES plaids.
This is the back of the card. My personalized stamps haven't arrived yet (boohoo). I wanted to put it on the back, so I printed the proof sheet onto white cardstock, 'colored' the flowers & leaves with Le Plume II markers and used a little adhesive to affix it. Quick & Easy!!!
So, let me know what you think!
