This is a card I made for a co-worker and friend. Her son was just deployed overseas and was having a rough time adjusting.  We passed this card around at work and people wrote him inspirational/supportive messages.  It was my honor to make this card - hope it put a smile on his face! 
As usual, I didn't write down sizes, etc., but I do know I used the Stand and Salute cartridge.  Thanks for looking!

60th Birthday card

I made this one for my wonderful Aunt Linda for her 60th birthday card shower.  I used the Nifty Fifties cardridge to make the icons, and the sentiments were done on the computer.  I really must learn to write this stuff down as I go, but I'm pretty sure I cut most of them at 2 1/2 inches, except the car, which for some reason I think I cut slightly smaller.  The strange white box on the inside is my crude attempt to blur out the message that I, of course, wrote before I remembered to take a picture.  Anyway, I thought it turned out pretty cute.  Thanks for looking!

Ornament cards

Set #2 - I did "scraplift" the idea for the "noel" card.  Can't remember where I saw it, so can't properly cite it, sorry!  Simple cards, but I think they turned out OK.  Thanks for looking!

Snowflake cards

My first Christmas cards of the year - first cards, period, in quite a while.  Life has been hectic - busy with going to my daughter's cheerleading and band competitions.  Thanks for looking!

I made this one a while ago for my daughter's preschool coordinator.  Still one of my favorites.

I made this card for my sister's birthday.  The pressure was on after the success of last year's Harry Potter card, so I opted for another pop culture obsession - The Hunger Games.  I used primarily Paper Doll Dress-Up and Everyday Paper Dolls along with downloaded pictures for the mockinjay and Peeta's bread (used clip art photo and then used a black crayon for the burnt effect).  It didn't turn out the way I'd hoped, especially the "girl on fire" dress, but still kinda cute.  She loved it, so that's what matters!

Made this for some co-workers who were attending a wedding on a golf course. They gave me no direction, just asked for a wedding card. As I know the bride as well, and knew she has a great sense of humor, I came up with this.  Kind of corny, but it was a hit.
