41st Work Anniversary

Pin It!
One of my coworkers has been with the company 41 years this year!!!  She worked her way up to management, then stepped down a few years ago to a less stressful position until she retires in a couple of years. Can you imagine working for the same company for 41 years??

Father's Day Card

Pin It!

My Dad is a big Kermit the Frog fan, so when I saw this on Pinterest earlier this year, I knew I had to make it.  I love making punch art cards. Of course, when I went to his house, I forgot to take the card along, so he just saw a picture.  :)  I'll give it to him this week when we meet for lunch.

There weren't any instructions, so I copied the best I could. I used Stampin' Up! ornament punch for his head, heart punches for his tongue, circle punch for his eyes and the pennant punch for under his head. "dad" is from the Family Reunion stamp set and "Happy Father's Day" is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

40th Birthday Card

Pin It!

I made this card for a friend and co-worker that turned 40 last week.  I got the idea for the wine glass from Pinterest.

The card base is Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie.  The wine is Cherry Cobbler. The polka dot paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby a while back.  The bow on the glass is Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine.  The "4" is from a punch set I picked up at a rummage a while back.  I didn't like the "0" in the set, so I punched a 1/2" circle then punched around it with a 3/4" circle.

Just Because Card

Pin It!
This is a card I made for a friend that has had a really hard year.  She has handled it better than most. I wanted her to know that I was thinking about her and how inspiring she has been to me through the events of the past year.  It seems as though she couldn't finish dealing with one thing before being hit with something else.

I used Stampin' Up! papers, inks (Elegant Eggplant), stamp (A Dozen Thoughts) and punch.  The heart is punched from aluminum foil and run through the big shot with an embossing folder.  

Love Card

Pin It!

This is a card a made a few weeks ago while just having some fun creating.

I used Stampin' Up! papers, punches, stamps and inks.....most of which are now retired.
