I made the above farewell card for a co-worker who left my company recently for greener pastures. I will miss him and our conversations about books, travel and jazz music. I wish him success in his new job.

The image is by House Mouse and is called "Gruffies - Bear-ied in Paperwo". I used a Sizzix folder called "Diamonds in Diamonds" for the embossing (that's my April Application).

Creative Khaki Color Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability

Tracy, a fellow DT member, is hosting a new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability starting today. The challenge is to use the color combination below and an unconventional item on your project... i.e. foil, a washer, mesh screen, a screw, something that could be found around the house.
I used toothpicks for my unconventional item. I made the path with them. I used "Explorer Chuck" for my project. I really like this image. It is fun and perfect for boy cards. I have a lot of men in my life, my dad, four brothers, my son and six nephews. I always need boy cards.

I hope you will join us in the Creative Khaki Color Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability. The winner will be awarded two digistamps of her or his choice from the Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge.

April Applications at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 3


This week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, we will be using Apple Green, Blue and White. The April Application is "texture".

I made the above get well card for a co-worker who had a bad fall and broke his nose and had to have stitches under his left eye. He came out of the hot tub, slipped and fell face first on a wooden bench. Ouch!!. I had the entire IT team sign it to cheer him up. Needless to say that the comments were funny. 

The image is by Greeting Farm and is called "Cheeky Nurse". I used a Cuddlebug folder called "Polka Dots" for the embossing (that's my April Application) and I made my first pin embellishment using a sowing needle and some pearls.
