Happy Retirement

Hi there,

I have a great woodland inspired Happy Retirement card to share with you today.  I used some of my favourite things to create a this card for my neighbour who recently retired after serving our country in the Canadian Armed Forces.

Here is my card....
I started with an Early Espresso card base and then layered a Whisper White embossed front.  I used the Woodlands Embossing folder.  My DSP is from the Annual Catalogue called Wood Textures. 

 I framed this adorable little Mukoka Chair with the Stitched Circle and then a plain slightly bigger circle.  The Muskoka chair is from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

My greeting is from my all time favourite Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Thanks for joining me today.

Happy Stampin'

Happy Birthday with Freshly Made Sketches

Hello everyone,
I have a fun and quick birthday card here for you today using the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  I love getting their e-mails and seeing what inspiration they have for us each time! 
Neat eh?  I am usually a pretty symmetrical girl - love everything in balance - A type or OCD not sure what that says about me, but I was up for the challenge of doing things a little off center.   

Here is my card...
 It was a quick card to put together.  I took my colour cues from the DSP, which although retired, is awesome for birthday cards.

I wanted the greeting and the ribbon steal the show.  I framed the greeting with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (they are never off my work table for long) and added a layer with my Layering Ovals Framelits.
Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to see all of the cards created with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.
Happy Stampin'
