A New Sympathy Card....

Here is a picture of the latest sympathy card that I made for my mom. You can't really tell, but I used my YourStory wavy cutter on the pink paper and then I embellished it with Pink Pearl Stickles. I think this is one of my favorites thus far. It's much harder for me to do formal cards than it is for me to do the fun one's. Maybe that's because I'm so use to my fun preschool creations. I also drew the flower on the cross by hand with Stickles. The cross is from the Car Decals cartridge. Have a great day!

Cowboy Up!

I have quite a few preschool items finished and strung about, but still uncertain as to what I may use certain cuts for. These will be my kiddo's name tags for their backpack hooks. I am loving the Western theme, but there is so much I want to do!!!

Sympathy Cards

I have been busy working on upcoming preschool decor and a little bit of this and that. Here is a sympathy card that I made yesterday for my mom. I have seen this specific design on many sites I've visited. I love the dynamic that it's all shadowed out. Thanks for your feedback!

Upcoming Preschool Year Designs

Last year, my theme for our preschool class was dogs. This year I am doing a Rodeo/Old West theme. I began making my name tags for their seats and their check-in tags yesterday. Here are just a few examples. Hope you are having a great week!

A few of the cowboy boots that will be used as the child's check-in tag....

The saddles will be laminated and used on the back of each child's chair with their name on it...

For the saddles overlay, I used my Paisley cuttlebug embossing folder. I did the same for the cowboy boots.

Father's Day Police Officer Card

Here is a little something that I whipped up this afternoon for my dad. I put his unit number on his hat and tried to coordinate the colors according to his old uniform. I used Everyday Paper Dolls for all the cuts except the greeting. I used Nifty Fifties for the letters. I used Stickles for the star on the car, the light and to fill in the tires. I wish I would have used silver for the tires though.

Father's Day

Here is my first Father's Day card for this year. My dad is a veteran and he is still very much involved with military organizations, not to mention he was a police officer and former sheriff. So, in numerous ways, he is very much "my hero."

First Designer Cup For A Co-worker

Okay, here is my first attempt at a designer cup (Other than our FUMP cups). One of my co-workers is moving on to bigger and better things next year by getting her CNA license. I am so proud of her!!! So, I designed this cup for her good-bye gift. I've learned that it's hard to take pictures of tumblers! LOL
