Happy B-Day Sis .....

Hello, I hope your weekend was filled with as
 beautiful weather as we saw here!
My sister's B-Day is here and this is the card I made for her.
Couldn't think of a better picture because we don't live close and wish I could be
with her on her special day!  I coloure the gals with my copics. 

I used MS essentials paper pad.  Tim Holtz, spellbinders and magnolia die.
I recycled, painted and crackled cardboard and a broken necklace was also recyled into the bead sprays.   Dazzling diamonds, star dust and basic jewels were to added to give the sparkle.
Ribbon is used from my stash. 
Here is the inside sentiment.

 Here is the birthday wishes and room for hand written sentiments.

Happy Retirement ....

Hello, welcome.
 I hope your week is going well for you.
Today, I am sharing a card made for a friend who is retiring at the end of March.  She is about to begin a new chapter in her golden years.

This delightful Saturated Canary image was coloured with copics.  
I loved colouring her! Paper was DCWV & magnolia cardstock.  
Tule and ribbon was from my stash and the flowers are Wild Orchid.  

MS, whimsy, magnolia, spellbinder and whimsy dies were used.  Whimsy postage stamps and a sentiment made on my computer were used.  I made several inserts to be taken out and used to hand write well wishes and sentiments from her many friends.

Here is the inside right side of the card.

And the back is dressed up also.
I am entering this in the Sketch Saturday  week #198 Challenge,

R U Really - 50!

When a guy turns 50 .....

Hello, quick post to show you a card made for a fellow turning 50.
An image from Kenny K seems appropriate,
what guy wouldn't want her smiling back at him.  LOL.

Used copics to colour her and stickles for added bling.
Embossed the music and Tim Holtz die for the gears.
It can be challenging to not use any flowers.
And a peek at the inside....

Have a wonderful day.


Gift Card

Hello again,

I made a couple of gift card holders.  It is much nicer than the store's envelope or holder.

Here is the first one.

  I didn't use the traditional Christmas colours to make it more universal for the whole year.

This is what the inside looks like.  The card is inserted in the slot.

Have a wonderful day and hope to see you soon.
Well wishes,

Gift Card
