"Friends are the Sunshine of Life" card by Lynette Jacobs
Supply list - Cardstock: Worldwin; Printed papers: American Craft (City Park); Trims: American Crafts (City Park); Felt flower: American Crafts (City Park); Sentiment: Kaisercraft

Variation #1: I supplemented the two narrow strips with two different trims.

The rest of the card was done according to the sketch.

"Happy Birthday" card by Christine Chain
Suppliespatterned paper: My Mind’s Eye, Authentique; paper flowers: unknown, (in Green Tangerine’s January kit club); brads: Bo Bunny; fabric letters: American Crafts; ink: Tsukineko; other: embroidery floss

Variation #1 - The most obvious change I made was that I used half of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock to make the card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I kept all the other dimensions the same.


Variation #2 - I omitted the swirl and used larger letters for the sentiment. Which makes the title block more of a background than a block, but I like it like that :)

"My Hero" card by Shari Thurman
Supplies - Patterned Paper and Stickers: Echo Park(A Boy's Life); Cardstock: Georgia-Pacific; Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink (Chestnut Roan); Adhesive: ATG by Scotch and EK Success (3D dots)

Variation #1: I used a polka dot pattern for the background.

Variation #2: I changed the shape of the sentiment.

Variation #3: I substituted the flourish for stars.
