Happy 80th Birthday – Queen for a Day

Sharing a card that I made a few years back for a very sweet lady who turned 80 and doesn’t look a day over 70. I wish I could look as good as her at her age. LOL!

Here is the inside of the card.

To make the card I used Art Impressions Stamps U4251 – Beauty in Progress  for the front of the card and Art Impressions Stamps Popcards – 4859 – Oldie PopCard for the inside. Both images were stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink using my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Dragon – Pull My Finger Slider Card

Hi There!

I made this fun card using the High Hopes Rubber Stamps – S222 – Dragon Finger a while back, but never got around to posting it. LOL! So here it is now.

As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew that I had to have it to make my dad a card with. When we were little, he would always tell us to pull his finger and then he would toot!!!! LOL! He would then laugh at our disgusted looks. But it always brings back fond memories. He’s older now and still hasn’t changed. LOL! I think that’s why we love him so much. Our dad has always had a great sense of humour.

I used the stamps to create a slider card. On the front center panel I used the dragon the first sentiment from the same stamp set.


Here is a close-up:

On the right panel, I used the sentiment from the stamp set “Pull My Finger”

On the left panel, is the result of the question and answer from the first 2 panels. Just look at the big grin on his face. Just like my dad’s.

Here is a close-up:


Put all 3 panels together and this is what it looks like when you pull it in both directions.


My dad loved his card and I hope that you do too!

Happy Retirement

Sharing a card that I made for a lady that I worked with. Today was her last day and I wanted to make her a special card. I am so jealous that she gets to retire at such a young age. LOL! I hope she enjoys each and every day of her retirement and wish her all the best of luck in the future! I made her drink green, I hope she likes a nice Tom Collins. LOL!

Here is the card that I made her using Art Impressions – SC0653 – Beach Babes.


Here is a close-up of the image from the front of the card.

Here is the inside of the card. I made up some small saying to go with each letter of “Retired”.

She loved her card and I hope you do too!
