Thursday 2-10-11

 this card was created for my bro-n-law who will be celebrating a birthday on the 17th, he likes motorcycles
and a few years ago he bought himself a motorcycle, so my husband and I thought he would enjoy this card,
the motor cycle was cut at 4" from the "Going Places" cart, I used white cardstock to emboss Happy Birthday for the background, and I used gray cardstock to represent the road and added white gel to make the white lines on the road...and yes another purchased card from my recollection stash!...enjoy
 My husband's other brother wanted me to make a card for the same brother as well, so he asked me to do one with a camera on it, so thank God..."Going Places" also had a camera on it and I cut it at 2 3/4" and cut the flash at 1 3/4"..again I used the Happy Birthday embossing folder...I sure am getting some use out of the Happy Birthday embossing folder....
 My husband's brother is a retired teacher, and he just recently found out that one of his good friends passed over the I designed this beautiful Sympathy card for the family...I decided to keep it simple but beautiful with soft pink and cream, I used "Wild Card" for the With Sympathy writing, and I use MS Lace punch to make it more attractive, and I used my corner rounder to make the edges blend in for the over all effect of feminine softness..all of this was placed on a soft-pink cardstock of 6 1/2"x5 1/2"
I created this Valentine card for my SPECIAL VALENTINE (hubby)...I used the cupid w/arrow die cut from "Sweetheart" cart, popped it on a background of hearts embossed, a 2 1/2"x4" pink strip that was punched with MS scallop dot punch, added some red/white polka dot sheer ribbon and made a bow, I had some store bought embellishment to complete the look I was going for and placed this on a 5 1/4"x6 1/4" red cardstock background, last but not least, I used my white gel pen to give the entire red edges the stitch look!
I hope he likes it...I will probably enclose a gift card to his favorite Yogurt shop!
