Happy Birthday

I made this for my friend's birthday.   I used my new blendabilities to color.  It worked up quickly.

Here is my card. Our hostess provided us with this adorable little kitty.  I used one of my new favorite Sizzix framelit card dies (my new obsession, lol)

Happy Anniversary

I made this card for my husband for our 26 year wedding anniversary this week.  My how time does fly by.  Not sure how I got this old, but hey, I'll take it and try to make the most of it.

I bought this set specifically for a card for this day.  It's SU Follow My Heart from the clearance rack at Stampin' Up.  It's a 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" square card with Real Red and Early Espresso.

Calendar Girls

I made this for this month's Calendar Girl challenge.  The request from our hostess was to make a Sympathy card.  As we all need them way too often, I decided to make six of them, so next time, I'm ready.  I used butterflies because there is something so peaceful about them.  I haven't had to many experiences of deaths of close family other than my grandparents, aunts and uncles who all lead very long fulfilled lives.  But, last year when my brother died, there was this yellow swallowtail butterfly (I think that's what it was called) that hung around in a bush in front of my parents house for 2 days, then we saw another one later that week.  It wasn't a type that either of my parents had remembered hanging around before.  We took it as a sign that my brother was at peace and suffering no longer.  I'm hoping I can keep these cards in my stash for a long time
