another birthday?

Today’s card is for our b-i-l. When I found the sentiment “What, another birthday? Aren’t you old enough already?” I knew it would be perfect for him. I had a hard time coming up with a design till I thought of making a square card. The background papers and square brads were found in my stash. I would have liked a little larger brad but this is all I had.

Hurt Feelings

Time again for a chuckle of the month for dear old sister. Sentiment “I always laugh when people try to hurt my feelings…as if I have any”. was found online, and image is online clip art.  Ef used is from SU but unfortunately, I don’t remember the name. Before embossing the background layer, I cut the circle using Spellbinders Classic Circle die. Sentiment tags were cut on my SU trimmer, I hand cut the ends and popped the strips up. 

Thanks for stopping by. have a great day and stay healthy & safe.

The corner cupcakes are popped up. Here is a close up of the cupcakes.

Performance Upgrade

Glad you stopped by. Today’s card is for our s-i-l who is having his second hip replacement. To get ideas for a hip replacement card I went to Pinterest and found one with this sentiment. Color combination came about when I saw the color challenge at JUGS. It doesn’t show in the photo, but I scored all 4 sides of the black layer and corners on the white layer.

Easter Treat Box

Hello and welcome. I want to wish you all a Happy Easter.
This treat box is for our neighbors 2 year old grandson. Every time he’s at grandma & grandpa’s he has to come to see Doug & Gerry, could that be because I always have a treat for him???
The box is from the Silhouette. Instead of stamping & coloring, I took the easy way out and used a clip art bunny and fussy cut it. Corner dots are a small circle hand punch, punched from pp. Inside has light green tissue paper that I cut the top edge with a MS scissors. I’m not sure but I think the scissors is called a fringe cutter.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.

Easter Wishes

Hello and welcome. Today Vegas is definitely the windy city. I was almost blown over walker and all.
Today’s card is for our 24 year old granddaughter. I usually make some kind of fun fold for her but this year she gets a “plain” old card. Pp was found online, sentiment was printed on the computer, ovals are Spellbinders Petite oval & Petite scalloped petite oval. After rounding the corners of the pp I edged all around with a Copic marker.

Running Bunny

Today’s card is for our 4 year old great-grandson. This entire card is a Silhouette cut file. Bunny is cut from textured cs. And as usual I couldn’t resist the googly eye. Since it was all cut on the Silhouette it was just a matter of putting it all together. Quite easy.

Thanks for taking time to look. Have a great day and stay healthy & safe.
