Retirement Card with Car

 Hello everyone!

Check out this cute card I made to celebrate my brother's retirement.  I used a cool die cut car from Spellbinders.  This die has lots of pieces and I used a glue bottle with a very narrow cap called Beary Arts Precision Craft Glue. Putting the pieces together without this glue would have been quite difficult and messy. I also used this die for my Halloween cards.  Those cards will be coming up on my blog this Fall.  

The clouds were punched with a punch from Stampin' Up.  I used a white glitter paper.

So, I think this is a really cool card.  And it was fun to make. Just takes a little time to glue all the pieces together. I will be back next time with a graduation card with a great big pink bow.  

See you then!!

Sympathy Peony Card

 Hello Everyone

Back to blogging after a break for the summer. I was a bit busy working in the garden.  Had to make some changes this year to cut down on the amount of work I would have to do. I had a large flower bed removed.  I did some of the work and hired out the biggest part. I actually like how the yard looks better without the bed.  I added some new Hydrangeas and moved a lot of things. So, all in all worked out really well. 

So, now I have some free time!  I have been making lots of cards throughout the summer.  I have my fall and Halloween cards finished and I will be sharing them with you over the next few weeks.

But, today, I wanted to share a sympathy card made for friends. 

I used a really pretty and ornate arched shaped die from Spellbinders.  I added a peony from Stampin' Up. The flower was colored with copic makers. I added a sheer silver ribbon.

So glad you stopped by today. I will be back in the next post with a retirement card.  

See you then.
