From All of Us

Last week was my Dad's birthday and I made him this adorable card from my family. I used the fun All in the Family stamp set from SU! and the All in the Family Sentiments. I had a little trouble matching up the arms and heads to the bodies at first, but then I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig and it was so easy! I think that this is our first "family portrait" since the baby was born! I made the card long enough to fit into a legal size envelope, I had some colored envies that I had bought and I figured I would need to make the card long to fit all 7 of us and our cat! I think it is fun to make this size card, it is different and unexpected.
I used my SU! scallop punch and circle punches for mounting the sentiment. The solid cardstock is SU! and the patterned paper is from Pink Cat Studio.
Hope you enjoyed, thanks for looking!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!

This is a card I made for my husband. He is a big kid at heart.
I used this really cute "Billy" image from Pink Cat Studio (fitting too because his name is Bill)
I then colored the image with my SU! markers and drew on grass. The frog has crystal effects to add shine and dimension. The words are from a SU! simply scrappin kit, stickers that I cut up and placed crooked. My husband said it reminded him of a ransom note! Not quite what I intended :)
All in all I like the card, but if I made it again, I would have chosen different patterned paper, the paper itself is kind of boring to go with this lively image.

Thanks for looking and Hoppy Father's Day!

With Sympathy

Has it really been a month since I have blogged? Time flies by!

I always find it difficult to make sympathy cards. I need to get some better sentiments. This is the best I could find at the time. It is from an old SU set. The image is from SU! Forest Friends stamp set. I was browsing websites online and I noticed that I liked the cards that used deco paper as a background for the stamped image. This is something that I had never considered before. I really like the results.
I hope the person who recieved this card felt the love that I put into it and gets some comfort.
Thanks for looking.
See you sooner that a month!
