Card Talk - Father's Day

I must admit I've been mighty busy the last little about you?  I'd bet most of you are busy as well.  Things to do, places to go, people to see...and the days never seem to be long enough.  

I'm also trying to get ahead, as I plan to do a bit of traveling in May and September to visit new grandbabies.  So now I'm working on Father's Day cards - using, what else?  Scraps!

Graduation Card - Physiology Themed

This cheerful card should make any AZ glad.  I received a request to make a box card with a physiology theme.  After a little questioning - as I really wasn't sure how I would make a physiology-themed card - I learned the card would be a graduation card for a University of Arizona student.  I convinced the customer the student would be wowed with a box card with a U of A theme.  But I did want to please the customer, so googled physiology to get inspired.  All you could find were pics of brains and look carefully and you will see some physiological embellishments.

Good luck in the Elite Eight, Wildcats!

49 Days Until Mother's Day!

Hi Everyone,

Mother's Day is the most wonderful time to give a hand-crafted card.  It's so much fun to see the reaction on your mother's face when they see a handmade card or gift you created especially for them.  Today I am bringing you some more inspiration for Mother's Day.

Oh, my goodness - my scraps are gorgeous!!  I am in love with this butterfly paper!

Have a great week and we'll see you right back here tomorrow.

Mother's Day

Today’s card changed two or three times while I was making it last night. First it was vertical; then it was horizontal; then when I woke up this morning and I hated the card. Arggh!! So, I salvaged the card by changing just a couple things. :)

I used two of my favorite images from Graphic 45's Place in Time Collection.  I could seriously use these on everything!  I love those little flower fairies.

Also, I'm using a digital sentiment from Free Digital Scrapbooking.
