Not a Creature was Stirring

Standard

I’m sneaking in another Christmas card I’ve been working on.  I love this image so much!  It reminds me so much of my very first fur baby when she reached her senior years and gave up her predator ways.

Congratulations Are in Order

Standard

A little birdie told me that her family is growing and I am tickled pink (or blue!) for all of them.  I’m sworn to secrecy for now, but that couldn’t stop me from creating a special card in anticipation of the blessed arrival.  In fact, I created two- one pink, one blue

There are lots of great stamps available, but this Happy Hoppers stamp from Stampendous popped right into my head.  Bunny Luv is a very simple image, but it projects such emotion.  Can’t you just feel the love?  I put together a very clean layout to keep all the attention on the wonderful bunnies.

Congratulations Graduation

Standard

Another graduation! I’ve been pretty lucky to celebrate a few graduations this season.  It’s been a lot of fun to put together a few different card variations of the same theme.  I made this card for a fine young man who I’m glad to call a friend.

I put this card together with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #197 “Congratulations” in mind, so I broke out the Graduate stamp and went to work.  I decided to go with the traditional black gown to keep it on the masculine side. I gave it a modified tri-fold and used a fancy die cut to make the red, white and black palette a little more interesting.

Birthday for a Coffee Loving Friend

Standard

Birthday Set

Tomorrow is the birthday of my great friend, Megan, and I just couldn’t wait another minute to wish her a happy birthday. She is one of those wonderful people who can laugh and share and make you feel good about yourself, and I am so grateful that our lives bumped into each other!

Megan and I both share a love of coffee and conversation, so these stamps, all from Stampendous, are perfect.  I couldn’t decide which I loved the most, so in addition to my card, I added a gift sack for her coffee-themed gift.
