Anniversary Hearts

This is the anniversary card I made for my husband of now 2 years 🙂 I used some fun big shot toys that I’ve had sitting around for awhile, so I’m happy to have finally taken them from the wrapper to make this semi-masculine card.

Jolly Postage

Too early for Christmas? Well, yes, I suppose it is, but its almost July, and people do Christmas in July type things right?  This is actually just an idea for a convention swap, I think I’m going to go with it, and a few others if I can muster up the time.

Time flies! Today’s fast-paced world has made people busier and less willing to commit their time to a traditional classroom degree program. Taking online college classes is a great way to finally fulfilling your dreams, perhaps gaining an online social work degree. Maybe for Christmas this year, after making and giving cards, you could give yourself a gift of higher education.

Pressed Flowers

I used the pressed flower technique once I finally got the new triple layer blossom bouquet punch. I really like how the square lattice embossing compressed the flowers onto the paper 🙂 This card uses the new hostess set available in the 2011-2012 catalog in July called Happiest Birthday!
