Congratulations card!

We are so proud of our Granddaughter Natasha Trozzolo who has just graduated as a Dr. of Audiology and has been accepted into the Air Force as a Captain.  Tomorrow her Mother is having a Congratulation and go away party for her, so I made this card for the occasion.  

The flag is a Tim Holtz die.  I cut it 3 times, red, blue and gold and layered the layers.
The stars are also on the die.  I popped the flag and stars up for more interest.  The Congratulations sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft.  I kept the card simple because I think it says it all.....just how proud we are of Natasha!

Birthday cards

I can't believe it has been over a month since I posted or made a card.  But, it has and the reason is I have been sick and down for almost 3 weeks with pneumonia.   I am still not back to 100%, but at least up and dressed.  It has not been a good time, as I have really been sick.  I see the doctor again tomorrow, so hopefully, I will get a good report.  You wouldn't think it would take this long to bounce back, but it sure has.  Jon is coughing, so hopefully he does not get what I had.

We had 2 of our grandchildren with birthdays this week.  I did make a couple of cards, not my usual style, but just thankful to get them made.  They will be late, but I still want them to have them.

I took advantage of some pretty paper for both cards.

This is Sarah's card.  She is taking horse riding lessons, loves Tea Parties and is just
a sweet heart.  So, I added all of these things to this pretty Kaisercraft paper.  I added background strips of paper for dimension. and popped up the different items on the card.

This is Joshua's card.  He will be 3 tomorrow, so I thought all the "guy" things was perfect for his card.
I just added a strip of stripped paper on the side, popped up the sentiment and airplane.
I had the #3 from die cuts by Tim Holtz.  Easy peasy, but he would not know if I spend 15 minutes of 6 hours.  I took advantage of that right now.  Do you every do that?

I hope you all are having a great summer.  It sure is flying by isn't it?
