Cans & Cards

My friend Jenn at has inspired me to make some cans. She went to Alaska to visit her friend & since they don't have a "Hallmark" store there she made some cans & cards to take with her to sell in her friends coffee shop. She sold them lickity split. I couldn't resist & made a couple today. I used the PaperTreyInk stamp set Little Lady for the topper. The sentiment is also a PaperTreyInk set called Favor It
Jenn sells the cans at her store along with the darling ribbon that curls all by its self. I love it!
I made the Halloween topper but was stumped as to what to put in the middle, then my friend Alyce brought a card for us to make.....see below..... that had feet on it. I loved her idea & it was perfect for the middle of this topper(Thanks Alyce). The topper stamp is from Stampendous which Jenn ordered for me, the feet are from an Oriental trading set for a baby.
This card is for my BIL who's birthday is Tuesday. I used stubbies from Stamps by Judith & her tree stamp. The inside of the card was made using Photoshop....I know I cheated but I didn't have a stamp with a slam birthday sentiment. We won't mention how OLD he is getting but it 4 years older than myself.

Carolyn came up with this darling ice cream cone card for our Wednesday stamping session. I liked it so much I made a second card to mail to my niece in Lubbock, Tx who is having a birthday on the 31st.
Thanks Carolyn.
OK this is Alyce's card. I love this card. It cracked me up. She brought paper by Debbie Mumm from JoAnne's. Thanks Alyce.
Sam came up with the cute sparkly rocket ship card. I really sparkles in person but this picture just didn't capture it. Thanks Sam.
Rachele another friend gave me a matchbook card last Halloween and I had to case it so this is my rendition of her card. Thanks for the idea Rachele.

And the last card is a card I really don't care how it turned out but thought I would post it anyway. I used SU! cardstock, stamps & Ink. OOps the sentiment is from a TAC set. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and say a prayer for our troops active & past. See you next post.
