Matthew's 20th Birthday

No more teenagers in my house....My, how time flies. 
My little redheaded boy has grown up so quickly. 
From baseball to skateboarding,,,,still skateboarding....
well not really grown up either,,,just in size....
Inside Card
I used watercolor pencils for the skateboarder.
The helmet, glove, cleats, ball and bat are CTMH, all heat embossed.
Yes I finally bought a heat embossing gun along with a pack of various colors to play with....
The skateboarder, skateboard and Happy Birthday are from various 
stamps that I've had for a while and can't remember who made 
them,,,,sorry. (I am trying to get better keeping up with that).
It's pretty neat.The inside sentiment is my own....

Masculine Thank You

This card would be great to use if you had a friend or
neighbor come over and repair you sink, paint your garage, 
trim your hedges, or even help you get your car started.


I used Clear Dollar Stamps-Scenic Trees, 
Nestabilities Labels and some twine 
and brads.

Another "Are You Cured?" - Sickly Pig

I dug around and came across some 'chicken wire' paper that I had 
and knew what I wanted to use with it. That poor sickly pig...
Check out the inside with all of those ants.... & the worm...

Window Cards

My first attempt(s) didn't turn out too bad. The Owl Card is cute, 
but when opened, it didn't leave very much space to write much 
more than the signature, but sometimes, that's all that's needed. 
I would have had to have lowered the frame in order 
to put the greeting over the owl, but hey,,,,lesson learned.
I started to put the inside greeting under the bear, but remembered
the Owl this one has plenty of room for more comments,etc
I used Nestabilities Label on the Owl Card and Deckled on the Bear Card.

These Boots....

Here's a card I made with boots and I just can't remember who they 
belong to (company).I never thought I'd be able to use them, 
but you know what?,,,,,I did and it's so cute!!!

I used the Nestabilities Deckled die cuts.
