Get off your back!!!

A friend has undergone some back surgery and so I thought I better make a card for her. At least this one is meaningful....."Hope your recovery is quick and you're BACK on your feet soon." Ha ha. I hope she sees the humour. The image is charlie from CDS. I coloured him with my copic markers and added some crystal effects to all the leaves. I then sprinkled some iridescent ice on top. I have been using my embossing folders on the DP to add some more depth to the card. Also added some sparkly stretchy cord linking to a button. Thanks for stopping by.

The Journey awakens the soul....

Isn't that so true. I love this saying. I decided to break open my pack of "Newsprint" DP from SU! I love all the vintage images and descriptions from way back when. How things change over time. I used the stamp from Tim Holtz and popped it up using dimensionals. Added some hardware, a little mini clip and spiral from SU! and put a clear tag sticky over the word "soul". I sponged the edges with vintage photo distress ink and added some linen as well. It just makes it look so "vintagy". Thanks for looking and have a super stampin' day.

How do I thank thee...let me count the ways...

I'm trying to get onto some well-deserved thank you cards for my coworkers. They showered us with tons of food again and lots of baking treats. We are so spoiled. I am trying to make each card very personal for the person and it's taking alot of time to come up with ideas that make me happy. It's really hard to make one-of-a-kind cards. Fun but challenging. Thanks for looking. I got to use the Tim Holtz dies again (love them!!). I'll tell you, a little glitter and glitz really dresses it up. The next card uses a stamp set from SU! called Because I care. I just realised that I haven't ever used it once. My bad. I even used the little blossom for paper piecing. This card is for a purple lover so I think she will really love it. Have a great day.
