A boat load of cards for a Tuesday.

Die Hard Fan
Paper is K and Company Urban Rhapsody
The ribbon is American Crafts
I used my Tim Holtz Distress Tool and inked with Dark Moss from Color Box
I am going to see a lot of Die Hard Fans tonight at the White Sox Game.  Hopefully we have a win, unlike last night.  They are tied for 2nd right now!!!  Last year at one of the games, I caught a ball.  (I then gave it to a little boy, and it turned out it was his birthday and first game!)
Use stitching (real, or faux), a winged thing, and a rub on.
My paper choice is Core'dinations, and K and Company Urban Rhapsody
The stamps are Endless Creations for the stitches and Stampin' Up! from their Garden Whimsy Line
The rub on is from Hambly Screen Prints (its the silver leafy image along the right side, you may need to click on the image to enlarge it)
The sentiment is a Creative Memories Sticker
The ink is Staz On for the black and the rest is Stampin' Up! Blue Bayou, and Wild Wasabi
Family is a Gift
I used varnish, and mica powders on watercolor paper
The sentiment is DCWV
The ribbon is Martha Stewart
Happy Birthday 
This is for My Time to Craft (Every day is my time to craft that is all I do apparently!)
The theme is black and white plus one color
I used Stampin' Up! Birthday Whimsy and the Congrats set
I also used their red grosgrain ribbon.
The stamping was done in Staz On then one of the balloons was heat embossed with Red Tinsel embossing Powder.
I then dry embossed the swirl and inked with Red Magic from Versa Magic.
I miss you
I drew this by hand and used Snow Days from Quickutz for the lettering.
I then used the Cuttlebug's embossing folder for the swirls.
