Finally, I have some cards to share. A birthday card I made for my nephew Aaron's birthday, a thank you card, and a just because card.
So my nephew Aaron has turned 17. He's going for his road test on Friday. I wonder how it is that my nephews and niece get older and yet I remain so youthful? Sheah, right.
My brother has four boys (of which Aaron is one) and Charlie's sister has a boy and a girl but Aaron is my favourite. I don't think its a secret to anyone, including Aaron and his brothers. Anyways, we're celebrating Aaron's birthday this Saturday and I made him a card. Still no idea what to get him by way of a present but I'm toying with the idea of taking him for his first-ever spa experience. I think it would be a lot of fun and, more importantly, I get to go to the spa too. I hope he likes his card.
I've had the same Stampin' Up Demonstrator for a few years now, Alison. I met Alison through my stamping buddy, Helen. Alison is totally the best demo ever and she's a wonderful lady too. I think its a testament to Alison's talent and personality that her clubs are always made up of the nicest ladies you'll ever meet. How I end up in the mix, I'll never know...seriously. We're in the middle of our Big Shot club right now and this month was my month to host. It was a doozy - I got sooo much stuff I still can't believe it. I was so overwhelmed and shocked I felt compelled to make thank you cards for all the ladies of the club. The thank you card (below) and just-because card (above) I made were inspired by a card that Alison shared with us.
I don't know if the technique has a name but it was a lot of fun. Just grab a bunch of punches or die cuts and cut out the shapes and then back with either stamping, design paper or glitter. I swear I don't have a thing for glitter but am constantly surprised at how often it turns up in my cards.
Anyways, maybe when my club stuff arrives I'll take a picture and post it...before the husband person sees it of course. Insert evil laugh....
Thanks for stopping by,
