Finally, I can post!

Okay, so the recipients of some of my recent cards have finally received them... which means I can FINALLY share them with you. Of course, if I had taken them to the post office when I had planned on it, they'd have gotten them a little sooner. Shame on me.

First, I want to share the card I made for Penny. I made the background using Pearl Ex Powders and White School Glue... add a little heat from the trusty 'ol heat gun and voila... a beautiful background. I must say, it was very messy and I was "pearly" for days following, but I think it was worth it.

The next card I'm sharing is one I made for my parents for their anniversary... I used Grillafella and Winobella and meshed the two together, eliminating the grill, burgers & spatula, and using a bit of Cotton Candy Stickles on Winobella's dress. I also used the SU Weathered Background and my Cricut Opposites Attract cartridge to cut out the word "Love." I got the sketch (slightly altered) from the Mojo Monday Sketch #42.

The final card I'm sharing tonight (or should I say this morning) is a card I made for a very special little boy who turned one year old the same day I turned TWENTY-EIGHT. My friend, Sue, had Baby Nate a year ago, and since we share our special birthdate, it's only fair I send him a card, right? I used my SU Zoofari Stamp set for this card, along with my Cricut (to cut the number one) and the Special Day Background Stamp. I added a photo corner (using my SU punch) and the circles were cut with my Coluzzle (haven't used that in a LOOOOONG time!) To get the sparkle on the Zebra, I traced him with my Silver Star Gelly Roll pen. The sketch was from Friday Sketchers (sketch #6)... Here ya go!

Don't forget that you can click on any of the pictures to make them bigger. Thanks for checking in on me... stay close, I'll be posting more soon, as they receive them.
God Bless!
