Get Whale soon

My Mother is having shoulder replacement surgery on Tuesday. I can't be there so we met them in Peoria today for lunch. I made this card for her. I used a leftover card base from my daughter's graduation invites. I used Just Because cart for the boat, whale and words. The waves are from Zooballoo. The other fish are from some 8 1/2 X 11 paper someone gave me.

A Card for my Hubby

Somewhere in the near future is a cruise on DH & I's calendar. I got inspired with left while leafing through a cricut handbook while waiting for a cut on the Cricut. This is what I came up with!

The waves and the clouds are from Zooballoo, the people are form Beyond Birthdays, Love you is from Lyrical Letters and the rest are from Life is a Beach. All the paper was leftovers except the water paper which I've had seen the dawn of time! Love to hear what you think of it. But SHHH! it's a surprise so if you see my hubby don't give it away! ;)

Howdy Pardner!

We are putting together care packages for college students and military next week. I am making some cards for the military boxes. Here is one card set I am almost done with. I am making 28 of them. I used Dry Brush stamin around on the base. The 1st layer is Riding Hood Red that I ran through the Tim Holtz Brick Wall Embossing folder and then inked.
The 3rd layer is a new technique I learned at Art Group on Tuesday. It is a paper leather look.
I cut out the Top Note from Storybook Cart. Spritzed form water on it. Rolled it.
You are suppose to dry it out using your heat gun, but I didn't have electricity yesterday so I just let it air dry.
Then finally Run an ink pad across it.
The finally layers are from the Old West Cart. A piece of twine finishes it off!
