U did it!

Happy Friday to you! We have had some interesting weather here this evening....thunderstorms and a few tornadoes! Hopefully that is all past us now through. The kids were supposed to have a dinner/program out at the school this evening but with everything developing so quickly out by the school I opted to stay home instead. They were okay with it...I think they had a long day today and were glad to be home anyway.

Like my cards? This is one of my newest Bella stamps. I got her to make these cute little cards for some friends of mine at work. I have had my eye on her for over a year now and finally decided that I really wanted to add her to my collection! Both of my friends graduated from WSU either this weekend or last so I made the cards using the WSU colors. On the card below I used my new Martha Stewart border punch. Like it? I picked it up at Walmart for $13!

Now on this card...I used the Cuddlebug and the swirly embossing folder to make that pretty design to the right of Bella. I put the card together and decided that it needed a bit more definition so I used charcoal chalk ink and inked up the embossed swirls. The gingham ribbon on both cards is from SU. The yellow used on the Bella stamps (as well as the colored spots they are standing on) are done with Prisma markers and the gowns are colored using a black colored pencil and blender pen.

Thanks for peekin' in! Hope you guys have a great weekend! We are gearing up for a busy week here. My oldest is graduating from 8th grade on Tuesday evening! I can't believe my baby is so grown up!

Very nice! I should have ordered one from you to give to Samantha today! I think you should have a website "Cards by Toni"! You could be the next Hallmark!

Those are adorable cards. Bella Stamps are really your style.
