Birthdays and Such

Finishing my fall term. Thought I would post some things I have done in the past 3 months:
Window Die from Cheery Lyn, Stamp is from Kitchen Sink Stamps and the "leaves" are sweet pea Flowersoft.

Tim Holtz's Bird Crazy with Dylusions sentiment.Background is Brusho crystal on watercolor paper.

Sentiment and images from Gina K Designs, but Cow Balloons from Rubber stamp Stampede.

AI Gator

Dylusions Sentiment, Lady and cat tower are from AI

SU image and sentiment

SU sentiment, images from AI. Paper pieced, and colored with Copics

Tim HOltz's Bird cray image. Stamp from ?

WP9 Lucky stars set

My husband's friend is recovering from a fall from his roof. Honestly, my husband said that this wouldn't be offensive. We did wait til he got home from the hospital to send it, though. :) Tree is KSS, and sentiment is from a Silhouette file.
House is a Memory Box Die. and the rest was improvised.

Inspired by a card from Pinterest. I googled my husband's family tartan and printed it to make it personal to him. Sentiment is from Fiskars, Just so that you know, as a true Scot, there is nothing under the kilt.

Triple Time Stamping from IO stamp.

Stickers are from Magenta. This was a diamond fold card, made mostly to emphasize texture. The recipient is 108 and has very poor eyesight, so I try to emphasize contrast colors and texture. Spellbinders Fleur de lis squares die. 

One of my students became a new dad. This was for his family, a diorama card using Sweet Shoppe Stamps Nesting Set.

I have two friends who had leg surgery the same week. I made them each a card using House Mouse Images.

The image here was from an old roller stamp that I unmounted and mounted on ezmount. I love the stamp now! I created the Sentment cut file  in my Silhouette.

Tim HOltz again. I REALLLLLLLY love this set. I used some of his  accessories as well.

I was tasked with making cards for our deparmental gift baskets. I created the silhouette cut file that is a 3-D popup turkey. The cover imge was made using a brass stencil and pearl ex. The dp is from Gina K.

This year's Halloween cards for the nieces and nephews. Sure they are all above 25 now, but 2 have children and the rest will always be my babies :) 
A Block Card for the second student who became a father this term. Images from IO, dp from Gina K.

Galaxy Birthday Card for a friend. The sentiment is from Melanie Muenchinger's Mosaic Inspirations set. available from Gina K Designs.
Thanks for looking!
