Hi everybody! Hope you had a good holiday weekend! It's been quiet here, so I've been crafting.

July 2 was my sister's birthday. My card is late getting to her, which is happening too often. July crept up on me!

She likes RED more than anything, so I decided that would be the main color on my card. The supplies are all from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life. I enjoy her products and have belonged to a few of her clubs -- Stamp Club, Die Hard Club, and Card Kit Club. Now I'm just a member of the Die Hard Club, which means I get a stamp set with the dies once a month. Love it!

For this card, I used the Circle Flip-It #2 die for the base of the card. Paper is from the Happy Collection, and the stamps & dies are from the Ladybugs2love set.

Here are a few (fuzzy) close-ups to show you the die-cut pieces I added to the circles.

I kept this fairly simple because it will have to go through the mail. I didn't want any bumps to tear up the envelope. I'm taking a chance with that knot in the ribbon. Let's hope it makes it all right!

Before I go, I wanted to share a picture of me with my sister, taken this past year when she came to help me after ankle surgery. What a blessing! Love her!

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~


  1. Super cute - very appropriate for the summer season!

  2. Oooh I love all of those little red polka dots. The ladybug is super cute and this is a great fold!

  3. I FOUND your blog again!!! Oh, my goodness, how did I lose the link? And I just used this very set a few weeks ago and have the exact kind of paper LOLOLOL!!! Yours is so darling! I wasn't going to incorporate mine into cards, but something else. They would go so perfectly with your gorgeous creation! You and your sister look beautiful! I haven't seen mine in 18 yrs as she lives in Japan and is older. I'm glad you are close to your family! ♥

  4. I love the ladybug! It is always so fun to stamp. Love this flip-it die also. Great polka-dots.

  5. Oh wow, you two look so much alike. My sister and I do too, and we have a lot of fun with it!! Your card is so adorable, love the polka dots and bright color. Really nice scalloped edge everything about this card!!!

  6. Perfect summer birthday card. I love the red polka dots and that cute little ladybug. Nice picture of you and your sister. Judy's right, you look so much alike. My youngest granddaughter's birthday is July 2...she just turned 19.
