Cuttlebug anniversary

Well I really can't take any credit whatsoever for the design of this card - I was inspired by the creations Heartprints Cuttlebug Gallery you have to admit they are just scrummy and so effective.

The receipients of this card are my Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law in England - their anniversary is Sunday AND I know it won't get there in time but still sending them lots of love as they celebrate their anniversary - the world can always do with more love.
Big note to self - I need a stamp for the "Happy Anniversary" - I nearly made myself cross-eyed lining up all those letters! You really can't tell by the photograph (which was taken about three seconds before I popped it in the envelope and sent it on its way) but there are embossed lines to separate the sections.
Embossing - cuttlebug stylized flowers and devine swirl, Fiskars trimmer
Stamps - My Sentiments Exactly
Ink - Versamagic Dew Drop chalk ink in Pixie Dust, Spring Pansy and Aloe Vera; Sakura gelly roll stardust clear.

Graduation card

I'm one of those bloggers that doesn't believe in apologising for absences - if we aren't out there living life then really what is the point? Back to the regularly schedule broadcast!

I'm not certain what I feel about this card. I put it together quite quickly for a High School graduate because I really just couldn't get my head together to get things done. My mojo definitely went on walkabout. I have cards and gifts now that I "owe" - don't you just hate when things get like that... I'm going to keep trying to aim to be ahead of the game, however because that is the way I am!

Anyhoo! - enough of me yattering away! Here's the important info!

Cardstock - Georgia Pacific, Hobby Lobby textured, iridescent gold vellum
Stamps - Hero Arts, Northwoods Rubber Stamps
Ink - Brilliance graphite black and galaxy gold
