A few projects

Hey bloggers!!! I have been missing for a while. Work has been keeping me busy. I have had time to get some crafting in but just haven't had time to post anything. So today I decided to share the birthday card I made my mom with you and the retirement card I made for someone at work.

First up is the birthday card I made for my mom. I made this "quilt" card. I can't remember what the name of the paper pack I used was, but I thought it was really cute for a quilt. I also used some vintage photo distress ink to ink up the edges. I used the sewing machine to sew it all together. I found the ribbon in my stash, I knew it needed something like ribbon or twine but I just couldn't find what I wanted and finally came across it and thought that was the perfect little touch.

Next up is the retirement card I made for our retiring activity director at the assisted living facility I work at. We decided to give her a western themed going away party because western is just her kind of thing. So I used a martha stewart 6 x 6 pad I had that had all kind of bandana patterns. I cut the horse out from create a critter. All paper is papertrey ink. This card was a little bigger than the normal card because we needed room for all of our residents to sign.

I hope you all enjoy my cards for today, and hopefully I will be back soon
with a few more projects.
