Feel Better Soon Card - feat Melonheadz image

Hello Everybody!

So hubs and I donate blood and plasma anytime we can.  We truly believe in the importance of donations.  I have been involved with donating since 1995.  Anywho, Where we donate now, one of the technicians was in an accident and did some damage to her fingers (not her dominant hand).  She is back to work but on limited duty.  I wanted to create a little something, something for her to hopefully aid in the recovery process do I created this card and a cute and simple pair of earring for her.

I used a digi stamp from Melonheadz Illustrating because it was a perfect image.  Same hair cut, same injured side.  This image just looked like the technician.  She is just darling.  

I added some of the Studio G glitter glue to her flower and the hearts on her shorts and also to the bodies of all the butterflies to make them stand out.

Box created from Recollections card stock for the earrings.

The earrings are actually a pretty shade of sea blue but the camera didn't pick it up well.

Well, this is my project.  I love how this card turned out!  I wasn't sure of the layout of the card when I started but I had an idea in mind.

Okay everybody, I out!  I have a slew of projects that I need to finish including a few paper bag albums to share and a plethora of card ideas floating around in my head.  I also have Christmas on the brain.  I am preparing myself for projects now so I won't be behind later.

So until next time..

Masculine Card Series #3

Hello Everybody,

So Monday I was at work and my mind started to wander.  And my wandering usually goes to a very crafty place.  In my day-dream I saw this simple layout and thought to myself, "Self, that is a great layout for a masculine card."  So when I got home I pull out the Umbrella Jim digi stamp, colored him with Copic markers and created this card.  The only thing I think I will do is to add some shading with the N0 Copic marker.  Anywho, here it is.

The sentiments are from Create with TLC.  You can find the Happy Birthday sentiment here and the Many More sentiment here.

So that is all today everybody, just a short post.  I am working on another masculine birthday card and I should have that up for you all soon.  

Until next time.
