I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

A Couple of Birthday Cards and A Sympathy Card

Good Morning Everyone...Happy Monday! I hope you had a beautiful weekend! My original intent was to post a couple of birthday cards but we received some tragic news Friday. The wife of a vendor that my husband worked with years ago pasted away. I say tragic because she was 36 years old and full of life. We are uncertain the cause of death but it was unexpected. This card is in loving memory of Sarah. I used Nestibilities Lacey Circle, Martha Stewart Branch punch, Butterfly punch and Doily Heart Border (with the little hearts covered) EK Success Fern punch, CC Design Leafy Branch die and Fiskars tag punch. The sentiment is computer generated---
On a much brighter note..,.A very sweet blogger friend is celebrating her seventy-something birthday today. Happy Birthday Lorene! Not only is she a customer, but she is a faithful follower as well. She collects bears and her favorite color is aqua so I teamed her favorite with my favorite color and added a tear bear. This is the card I sent her. I used the Heart/Scallop Nestibility and Spellbinder tag die--- 
Lorene's grandson will be turning 16 and getting his drivers licence...oh does that bring back memories! When she asked me to make a card for him, I didn't know what I was going to do but I thought this digital paper from Kindred Creations would be perfect. Super quick and so much fun to make. The car and flag are pictures I found on line. I embellished the car a bit with the side mirror, headlight and folded down convertible top. I used buttons for the tires and popped it on the circle word from The Cutting Cafe that was cut with circle/scallop Nesibilities. The sentiment is computer generated with Cuttlebug Babyface Alphabet die for the 16 that I glue several layers together before cutting to give it the look and feel of chipboard---
That's it for today...Thanks for stopping by. I'll try to get back later in the week with the Halloween cards that I have done but not had a chance to take pictures of. As always, if you have questions or need more information than what I have posted, feel free to email me. Til next time...Enjoy your day and have a great week!

Hi'ya Kelly! Oh, I just love the texture on that teddy bear and you did a wonderfully job on the car "theme"!
Hope all is well with you and that you've had a fantastic summer! Your adorable grandchildren are getting so BIG!

Hi Kelly! I'm so sorry to hear about passing of your friend. I know how difficult it is to make sympathy cards but this one is done beautifully. The soft colors captures the sentiment perfectly and I love how you personalized it. I love the paper you used for the tear bear and Lorene's grandson's card is fantastic. Perfect for a boy turning 16!

These are amazing. I love how the beads really dress up the simple circle and the flowers are spectacular. The tear bear is too cute for words and just love the tire tracks, checkered flag & all the details on the birthday card.
