Happy Friday, everyone! The sun is shining, which is a plus today, even if the temps are still way down low on the thermometer! I have two cards to share, both using the FMS sketch from my sweet friend Linda:
This is a fun, basic sketch that has tons of possibilities! I needed two birthday cards to finish out my January church birthdays, one for an ornery man who always keeps me laughing and one for a lady! So here we go:
This Animal Expedition DSP always challenges me--its cute juvenile images don't always lend themselves to my style of card-making, but I thought these giraffes would work great for the vertical panel! I fussy-cut two of them out, added DSP and a birthday sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays (sorry, this isn't following my backwards alphabet challenge, LOL). This particular sentiment works great with one of the stitched rectangle dies:
My second one basically lets the Botanical Butterfly DSP (a SAB item) do most of the work! I flipped the sketch so that big beautiful butterfly would take center stage, and I added a Basketweave-embossed background along with two stitched scalloped borders from the Be Mine dies and another birthday sentiment:
I thought I would share a picture that Cassidy drew of my dad! We brought up some of the gazillion note pads he had at his house (he never threw anything away), so she used one of them for her artwork. She did pretty good at spelling "remembrance" too--and nailed his plaid shirt as well:
And this is what we'll be dealing with this weekend at his house; he was an antique tool collector and my sister, bless her heart, has been trying to sort through thousands of plumb bobs, planes, rulers, hammers, saws and other miscellaneous stuff to put up for auction. And this is only part of it!!! This is his living room....there are three other rooms in the house that are almost as full as this one!!
Farmers never get rid of anything...they might need it; even if they haven't farmed since 1972, LOL!! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
