Birthday Sundaes Challenge #13

Hi friends! I decided to enter this card in the Birthday Sundaes Challenge. The challenge is to make a birthday card using wet or dry embossing. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder "Happy Birthday" Duh! The ice cream cone is of course from Create A Critter cartridge, probably everyone's favorite! I used glitter paper for the words, paper from my stash, some pearls, ribbon and a border punch from Recollections. (don't know the name) This was made for an elderly woman I know that turned 90! This was her favorite card that she recieved. It feels good to make someone's day doing something that we love to do....Have a great day.

Happy Cruise!

Hi friends, Happy Tuesday! It's Friday for me, yepee... Well, here is the card I made for my 78 year old mother in law. She is going on her first cruise to Alaska in a few days. You don't get the opportunity to make a "cruise" card very often, so I knew I wanted to do one for her. She is the best mother in law a person could have. I used the Life Is A Beach cartridge for the ship, a stamp from Michaels for the "Bon Voyage" which I embossed with dark gray embossing powder. I used flat Metal Dots for the windows, a gel pen for the stitching and paper from my stash. The waves are from paper I had, I simply cut out the "waves"! I think it turned out really cute, I know that she will love it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
