Becky's Birthday Card


Hi Blogland friends!  It's been almost 5 months since I've been on here!  I sure have enjoyed the break and SO much has happened!  My daughter got engaged this summer while we were on vacation in the Bahamas!  Their wedding is June 13, 2019!  My husband decided to take early retirement...his last day of work is December 3, 2018!  And even more exciting, my son and daughter in law are expecting our first grandchild in April!  We found out this weekend it's a BOY!!  I'm still on cloud nine:)

On to my card!  My daughter's birthday is on Halloween and she loves wine, so I chose JJ Wine from Bugaboo Stamps (my inspiration came from Dawn's card found here).  I colored her with copics, black wink of stella on the polk a dots, and glossy accents for her glasses, wine glass, and bottle.  The layout is for Stella Says Sketch #617 (I turned it sideways).  I printed and cut out her favorite wine...Barefoot Pinot Grigio for the wine label and the sentiment is computer generated.  I cut the bubbles out on my cameo, orange marmalade distress ink, gems from Hobby Lobby, DP by Martha Stewart Halloween pad and CS from The Paper Studio.

Pete's Birthday Card



It's been a couple weeks since I have posted a card or visited your blogs.  I am kinda taking a break from blogging and card making (only making the necessary ones for family).  We also adopted 2 kitties a month ago.  They are outside kitties and were semi feral, so I've been trying to tame them.  They are coming around and let me pet and scratch them on THEIR terms!  They are SO FUN to watch play!

On to my card...My brother's birthday is tomorrow and he is a huge NASCAR fan.   My inspiration was one I saw on Pinterest!  I bought race car box card file from the Silhouette Store and cut out on my Cameo.  The gears is a stamp I made on my Silhouette Mint using Steampunk Cogs file and different colors of ink.  The checkerboard paper I Googled and the cardstock is from my stash.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Chase's Graduation

Hi Friends!  Sorry I haven't been to your blogs.  Last week we were in PA for some family things.  I spent 2 days at my parents going thru things as we have a buyer for their house.  Oh the memories there and the things you find!  I wish I could ask my mom about several different things...especially who people are in pictures!  Friday was very emotional, as it was the last time I would be in my childhood home.

On to my card!  Our daughter's boyfriend is graduating college tomorrow and this is the card I made for him.  I'm VERY pleased with how it turned out and I'm sure he will LOVE it!  The top right pic is a box I made to put it in.  Most everything was cut on my Cameo or I used a die cut...except the numbers and my friend cut them on her Cricut

Happy Mother's Day to all!

Anniversary


Today's card is for my brother in law and sister in law's anniversary.  They are going though some rough times and I thought a humorous card would put a smile on their faces.  He found out 2 months ago his cancer returned.  He finished radiation last week and should start chemo in the next couple weeks.  His prognosis looks good, but it is still scary!

Die: Stamp of Life large stitched circle
Hearts:  Cut on Cameo
