Requested Card

My mom has been 'placing orders' for me to make cards for some of our family members as well as her friends. So I usually ask her if she wants them serious or humorous. Well here's one for a dear old friend of hers that I came up with after 'humorous' was the answer.

The 'old' woman stamp is from OCL 'Granny's Support Team'. I masked the chair that was attached so I could use just her. I used water colored pencils for her and the cake stand.
I know that my mom liked it but haven't found out how much her friend did....

Brother's Birthday !

One of my brothers had a birthday this past week and he turned 50 !! That only means that I am next (and last) of the siblings to reach this age in about 14 months. So I had to be fairly careful in making cards for his occasion. Payback is inevitable..... I don't think I did too bad...

This is from me. I recently started heat embossing and just love it. My only problem is to remember to prep the paper so those little unwanted specks won't stick. So I gave him the card with some little black specks on it, but photo shopped it before I uploaded it on here.
I cut out the letters and numbers using my Cricut, stamped the numbers with versa mark and embossed. I ran them through the Xyron and attached them to the card. The designs were all stamped on the card and embossed as well.

Next is a card that I made for my parents to give to my him....I was playing around with ideas and I saw this little car, then remembered a sentiment that I had that would go perfectly with it....so I put it all together...what do you think?
