Happy Retirement

Hello & Happy Tuesday! So glad you stopped by today! I'm sharing a retirement card I made for one of my regular customers at work:

A closer look:

I used some Basic Grey background paper, MS border & corner punches, circle Nesties, Prima Sprites & a digi from The Cutting Cafe. The image was a bit larger than I pictured & after working with it in so many ways I came to the conclusion to cut out the phrase & put it on this way instead of the entire circle. The lady at work just adored it & said the person she's giving it to will love it too! I love making a customer happy :)

Hope you have a great day!

What fun these were to make. Thanks for coming by, hope you'll come back this week as I have a retirement card & one of those little cake candles to share.

Fourth of July

Wow, I cannot believe the Fourth of July is just next weekend, can you? Boy how times a flying... This week I decided to do a project for Sketch Saturday using an image from The Character Cafe, called Bang Boom, here's the sketch:

Here's what I've come up with:

A closer look:

I used some paper from my stash, the red is foiled paper, the star punch is a newer one that EK Success has, the silver stars & big blue glitter dots are Dress It Up buttons & of course the image is colored with Copic Markers & is actually popped up on the page, you can kind of see it in this closer view.

Well off to finish things this Sunday & get ready for work on Monday, next weekend I have 4 days off so there's something to look forward to this week :)

Thanks for coming by, tomorrow I'll have a sample made with this week's sponsor Stitchy Stamps so be sure to stop on back. Have a great night!

Happy Anniversary Honey!

Good Morning & Happy Thursday! Today is my 16th wedding anniversary, not that my honey checks in on my blog but Happy Anniversary Honey! Although I'm off to work & such I still hope to have a great day as 16 years ago today I married the love of my life & have no regrets doing so either, well most of the time anyway! Here's the outside of his card, you see his favorite color is "red" & I love Teddy Bears so I thought this was perfect:

A close up:

I used the ever so cute Cuddly Buddly digi stamp they look like they could be celebrating to me, the sentiment is computer generated & the paper is from the new DCWV Summer matstack. Sorry the inside is a bit personal so I'm not going to share, I'm sure you understand. Well have a great day & thanks for stopping by!
