A very Merry Doctors Christmas Card

I have a nephew whose family is terribly "Whovian". They will get this card for Christmas this year. Too much work for mass production, but good for a one-off. Since they are also "Grinchian", it seemed a good fit.
The images of Dr Seuss were pulled offline and printed on glossy photo paper,
The tardis is a cut file that I made. The wreath is a shrinky dink of a memory box wreath stamp that I had.
I suspect that they will love it, and will laugh. We all need one this year.

Birthday Card for Paul

My friend Paul had a birthday this week, so I sneaked into the craft room for a couple of hours.
I  SHOULD be grading, and honestly, have done for the past three says straight.
That said, I am not really feeling guilty, LOL.

He is a punster, so I added the IRONY stamp. Since he is also a master wood craftsman, I added the marquis mechanism for fun. It had the desired effect. Would do a couple of things differently, but am pleased, overall.
I used the scalloped circles  and  A2 filigree Delight dies from spellbinders.On the inside I used Labels 1 for the marquis reveal
Irony Stamp is from Impression Obsession
I also used as the sentiments from "Word to the Rescue" 
The Happy Birthday is from JustRite Stamps with their old mounting system. A similar stamp can be found, but I love their old perfect alignment sets.

a busy day

Today is my best friend's birthday. Happy birthday, Kelly! And I am travelling to a bridal shower for my future niece Amber..Monday is my brother's birthday, and my MIL is under the weather. So, cards for all. Since Amber and Andy met at UF, I used a gator color theme for her shower card.

Since my brother's christian name is Austin,  I designed this card from a photo of a 1933 American Austin. In truth he was named after a grey model of this car.

and another featuring a 1939 edition for the stash

A pic of Kelly's card. She is a very invested mom of two dogs. 

My friend melissa had a birthday last month ago
So I will share the card I made her

Thanks for reading!
