last birthday card for custom order

Here is the last of the birthday cards my new friend from Montana. I used my new little clown stamp and added lots of stickles. I dug out the old quickutz dies for the greenery and an old sizzix die for the tag. Used scraps from my parents anni card.
Sure hopes she likes all three!

My parents anniversary card

My parents celebrated 48 years together on the 6th. I made them this card and used the new Lily of the Valley image because her holding his hand really touched me. It just reminded me of the gentle love these two people have for each other. I hope some day my children will look at Jon and I with the same awe I have for my parents. I used some paper from a kit that I had forgot I even had. I also use the larger roses that I have always shied away from thinking they were too large for cards. The little heart charm was one of the first charms I bought way back when. Of course I had to use stickles on the flowers as well on the 48th. It looks a lot better in person than in these pictures.

Another little Birthday card

Here is another little birthday card I made for my friend to approve (or not..... lol) before purchasing. I just love the little "My Favorite Things" stamps. Two of my bestest scrapping buddies also made cards off this sketch. Thanks girls for playing with me! I colored her with copics, pearl chalks and colored pencils. As you can see, I had to add stickles too!
