Last month, I was looking to create a fabulous card for one of my SaddleBrooke friends and thought to myself..........What can I do to make a really WOW card for her..........so.......... I mixed up THREE COLORFUL BRADS.........A yard of beautiful STRIPED RIBBON......And added a measure of DELIGHTFUL for good luck......and what I ended up with was........
A fabulous greeting card for an extra special friend.
Have to say that this was a fun and extra special card for someone very special to me in SaddleBrooke. I colored in the flower cart before I mailed it off to her.......(by the way.....she loved it!).
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you can come back tomorrow and check out the really FUN bunny card I made for Easter. Keep Living Your Dream!

Looking for a way to say Thank You? How about saying it over and over.....like THREE TIMES......... Here's a special little card I created last month for one of my girlfriends back in Madison. A simple Thank You just didn't seem like enough - so I said it three times in this sweet little card made especially for her.
I tore a piece of green cardstock to create the background paper and then added three stamped Thank You's out and punched each of them with my SU circle punch. I lined all three thank you's up on a piece of black cardstock and had the perfect little card. LOVE how this one turned out.
Stop back tomorrow and I'll share an adorable flower cart card I created last month. Keep Living Your Dream.

Just have to do one last Birthday Wish for my daughter Jenni! Not saying how many candles there should be for this birthday girl......Let's just leave it at one plus..........a couple more!
I used the Sizzix candle die cut to make this card. I then created 4-bases for not only the candle but the birthday message to go on. This card is perfect for girls or boys......just change up your cardstock to create the perfect color for the birthday girl or boy.
Stop back tomorrow when I'll share yet another Kard by Kadie. Keep Living Your Dream!

I'm always looking for a BRIGHT and SPECIAL way to say Thank You - especially when it means sending a card to someone who has done something extra special for me......... So today I created that card by using some retired SU DSP and several SU Die Cut Blooms.
Here's a close-up of the SU die cut blooms - just love how using these die cuts really add that little something something that your card might need.
I've made several of these cards up and will probably send some to my daughter who owns a PartyLite business....she too is always sending out Thank You cards to her customers.
Hope your having a great day......and hope your able to stop back tomorrow. It's a SPECIAL Birthday tomorrow for someone very special to me..........Keep Living Your Dream!

Today I'm going to share yet another version of a flap over card with you. Here are two samples of what the card looks like closed and the lighter shaded blue card is displaying what the card looks like when opened up.
Here's a close up of the textured card front. I ran the blue cardstock through my cuddlebug embossing folder to create instant texture.
And here is yet another version of the card that I used the pok-a-dot textured embossing plate.
And finally, here is what the card looks like when you lift the top flap up. You can then fold down the bottom flap and write your message on the inside of this card base.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you tomorrow. Keep Living Your Dream!

Today, I'm going to share with you a HAPPY - BRIGHT Thinking of You card (even though - it won't be a HAPPY BRIGHT day with Michael leaving)........ The cards I created today are done by running colored card stock through my cuddlebug and embossing the paper. I next cut squares for the base of my card and randomly arranged the pieces together.
I used Summer Yellow, Brocade Blue and Rose Red for this first card.
And this next card I used Cameo Coral, Taken with Teal and Lavender Lace.
Here's a close-up of the 5-petal flower punch and scallop circle punch layered to create a FUN flower. I added a small circle punch to the center. These cards can be made up ahead of time and the message can be left blank until you need a quick card.
Heading off to the airport so Michael and Sullee can catch their flight back to St Louis - we have had a fabulous visit over the last five days. Hope your Saturday is going nicely for you and you can return tomorrow for yet another Kard by Kadie creation. Keep Living Your Dream!

Happy Friday to you! Today I created FUN Bags by using a standard A2 envelope. Here's what the bags look like after you seal them up and cut off approximately one inch of the top of your envelope. Here's a Happy Birthday bag - made with SU Bashful Blue DSP and a combination of different ribbons.
Below is another birthday bag - this one uses the Certainly Celery DSP.
A Pretty in Pink Thank You bag.....perfect for popping a couple pieces of chocolate and leaving it on a door knob or postal box as a surprise for a friend.
You can also tuck a small note inside the bag. Just think how special someone would feel receiving one of these. Just another idea on how to wish a Happy Birthday or Thinking of You without using a standard card. Wrapping up our visit with Michael and Sullee. It has been a fabulous time having my son and his girlfriend at our house for the week. Hope you have a fabulous weekend and until Saturday - Keep Living Your Dream!

What's Black and White and Red allllll over? (hint below!) It's a sweet Lady Bug Card.
Created this sweet little Lady Bug Card by using black card stock and a circle punch. Layered the black and red onto a white base card.....and then I began placing punched circles all over the red cardstock to look like "Lady Bug" spots.
I topped it off with a black and white ribbon and a sweet little retired SU lady bug. This will make a sweet little card to mail to one of my grandkids.
