60th Anniversary card.

This is another custom order I have for that special lady in Montana. I was at a loss as to just what to make for a 6oth anniversary so sure hope she likes how the end product came out. I am pretty nervous on this one as it took me so long to come up with an idea and then try to execute this idea into reality, that I have no time to make another if this one is not ok. Oh the stress I put myself under instead of just playing and having fun! lol Anyway, I just made a simple step card but added "braces" to the bottom so it won't "step out" too far. lol I used the cricut to cut out the names and the 60. For "Love", I had to dig out the old sizzlet dies. A couple MS butterfly punches and some flowers finished it off. Well, actually lots and lots of stickles finished it off. lol I do hope the lady who ordered this and the couple who may receive it, are blessed by it.

Both stamps are from Penny Black. The pp came from a pack that someone gave me several years ago. The button paws are many years old as I think they were from when my girls were little and I made different hair clips for about digging deep into stash! lol

another Birthday card

This is another case of my mind deceiving my hands....convincing them that this will work out and be wonderful. lol When I bought this stamp, I wanted to make a card for a dear friend, but now not too sure I will send it to her. She raises cows as pets.....having them all named and everything. lol In my mind I thought the bright pink and black would be just perfect for this image after I got it colored. Seems I would learn not to listen to what I tell myself because things never turn out how I plan them. lol Anyway, here it is in all it's gaudiness. lol
