Another Humorous Card

I direct an adult Handbell choir along with a highschool. But my adults are mainly ladies, yet we have three men as members. It never seems that my ladies can behave themselves. But that is what makes our fellowship. I look forward to being with them. I like and try to have birthday cards for my ringers and always on thee on the look out for funny ideas.

I trimmed with an xacto knife along with using my copics to color in. This was pretty detailed but well worth the time. Now I just need to make a few more to put in my card box.

Hope you enjoyed a little laugh. Happy Crafting!

Graduation Card for my niece

Now here is yet a card style I have been wanting to make and try out. Had to find it on youtube. But that was the easy part.
This is for my niece, who was Valvictorian of her class. I absolutely had to be there for her. And thanks to my hubby, we made it happen!

I made the back part a pocket to put a check in for her dorm fund.

Okay so I am a proud aunt. This is the Valvictorian in the family.
I think I am getting caught up here. I had all these cards and hadn't gotten them up until now. I know these are all cards. I will be getting back to some scrapbook page layout soon. I am working on a layout that I purchased from Monique Griffith. And all I have to say is WOW. So much detail that I spent a long time a my groups crop working on it, but still haven't finished it. Mainly I think due to using the new Expression 2. I think I will finish it out on my my old expression. I still have to really figure out this new machine.

Anyway, hope to get a few more posts up.

Happy Crafting!

This was one of the Father's Day Cards for my hubby!

We made several Dad's Day Cards. My boys selected the monster truck off the Father's Day Cartridge, since he took them to their first monster truck ralley this year.

Now my hubby is a Captain at the City's Police Department, so I felt this was my choice. With the concept of a badge.

Happy Crafting!

Here we go! A humorous card

I was at the Great American Scrapbooking Convention last June in Arlington, Texas. There I found a great selection of humorous stamps to use for some great cards for lady friends. This one was one I sent my mother-in-law for her birthday. Yes she has a great sense of humor!

If your interested in the stamp company, just let me know and I will post it. I am sure you can purchase them online. Happy Crafting!

Here is the scoop, remember me posting about the E2s that showed up at my door with no explanation. I never opened the packages to look inside for a letter. But still no one could tell me why they had been sent at customer services.

So ready for this? July 8th, I am panning thru photos on Jinger Adams Facebook. She had posted a photo with Megan Gravner, Teresa Collins and herself with some other ladies. I started flipping thru the photos and found myself looking at one of my layouts.

This was the photo she had posted from HSN again, which I was watching.

This was the layout. And below it, it read that I had been one of 5 more selected to win the anniversary E2. Boy did my husband roll his eyes at me. We were laughing about the whole situation. So after I emailed my story to the email address contact listed. Feeling like a goof! But hey, I didn't know. So I got the word on the situation yesterday. They looked into it and are sending the machine that was won back again.

Anyway, hope your having fun crafting. I have been working on a project which is now finished and will have to photograph. Chore cards with the Chore cartridge. Goal, to keep up with required chores for my older two children and allow them extra to do for a little extra to go with their allowance. And I have a few humorous cards that I did that will be posted soon. Time to get caught up!

Keep Crafting!
