My Hubby!

Hello Friends,

I am very sorry to tell you that my dear husband, Eddie, passed away on September 9th after a 3 1/2 year struggle with pancreatic cancer.  

During that time, his positive attitude was amazing and he was determined to live his life as normally as possible in spite of surgeries and treatments that were not always easy to deal with. 

 We were together for a long time, we would have been married for 50 years on October 10th.  Life is not the same without him and I am so grateful to my wonderful family & friends who continue to support me, as well as my strong faith in God which gives me comfort and hope.

Bye for now.

Take it Easy... You're Retired!

Good morning all!
Today I have another retirement card to show you.

This is a digi image that I coloured with Copics.  I cut out the picture above the bed and popped it up, then I cut out the 2 heads from pictures and popped them up also to give it some dimension.
On the inside it says, *You're Retired!*

I added a pocket to the inside that held this.....

The recipient was tickled pink and put on her *name* tag right away.

Thanks so much for stopping by today & have a lovely day!

Botanical Tea Brag Book

Hello friends!

Today I have a little wallet style, brag book to show you.  I found one very similar online and thought it would be quick and easy to make. Here's the link to it. I don't know the measurements of the one I saw, but I made mine 6x4" and 3/4" thick.  I used 6x6 and 8x8 pads of Graphic 45 *Botanical Tea* papers, they are such beautiful papers.  It holds around 32 photo's.

I did some fussy cutting from the 8x8 pad to decorate the front which closes with a magnet

I glued down the roses & birds nest just along the left edge so that I could slip in the photo mat underneath.

This one has a pocket which holds 2 photo mats

In the centre are fold out photo mats and 4 pockets, each holding a photo mat

Fold outs, can put photo's on both sides

The back of fold outs

Back of wallet

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit, hope to see you again soon.
Have a lovely day!

A Cut Above!

Hi there, welcome to my blog, I'm so glad you popped in!

Today I have another card to share with you.  
I saw this one on Pinterest

 I thought it was such a cute idea, and I liked the sentiment, so I decided to give it a try.
Here's my version...

I found the scissors clip art online, it was a free download.  The sentiment I made with my *Memory Mixer* program on the computer.  

Here's the inside, ready for me to write my message.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a nice day!

Pamper Card - 2nd time around!

I decided I didn't really like the last card I posted, so I took it apart and re-made it.  Here it is......second time around.

Basically the same *ingredients*, different style.
I changed the background to green & added the *retired* picture instead of the window.  I also printed out a narrower, taller version of the dresser, so that it would fit better.

A closer look

Saw this free download on Paulettes blog today, perfect for my card, so I made a hanging picture with it.

Also added Glossy Accents to her glasses

That's all for now, thanks for looking!

Pamper Yourself Card!

Today I have a retirement card for a friend to show you.
This one is a step card.  They are great for doing what I call *scene* cards.

All of the elements used are digital images that I have printed and coloured with Copic markers.  I have saved these over the years and so I don't remember where I got them from.  Some I purchased, some were free.  

As you can see in this picture, I cut 2 of the cup, duck and her arm to give some dimension.

I came across the following on Pinterest.... 

.....aint that the truth!  lol

Thanks friends for dropping by today, I hope you have a wonderful day.
Come back soon!

Old Fashioned Chair Card

Hello friends,
Another card to show you today.  
I used the pretty *Preppy Princess* paper stack from DCWV.

A closer look
The chair is a digital image, as are the clock faces.  The dragonfly is a metal embellishment.  I used a straight edge punch to make the white edging on the circle.  Directions for how to do this are here

I made an envelope too... below

I love my new We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.

Thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate your visits.
Till next time.....

Hello again!
My second post today is another card, this time it's vintage style.

The elements are digital images that I already had stored on my computer, I can't remember where any of them are from, as I have had them a long time.  If you recognize any as yours, let me know.

That's all for today folks,
