Happy Sunday! Hope you had a great weekend. I mowed the backyard this morning and escaped the heat (93F today) by going to a movie this afternoon. I saw "The Hunger Games" (again - love both the books and the movie) but they had a bit of a sound issue so it wasn't as good as it could've been.
Thought I'd share some cards I made last night. The usual suspects went to Scrap Mania at Archiver's - Julie, Sandy, Sayo and I were very productive. First up, a retirement card for a guy with whom I worked twice in my career - years ago, in both Eau Claire WI and Mankato MN. He retired from managing the St Cloud Social Security office.
I've had this little chair cut and stamped for quite awhile and finally thought of an idea for it. This Hero Arts digi cut for the Silhouette came to me when I was a Hero Hostess last year. It perfectly matches their clear set Wish You Were Here - so cute! Their Designer papers made great card bases too. The diamonds are from a Tim Holtz cling set called Boundless Flight and the sentiment I borrowed from a friend - it's an oldie from American Arts Stamps.
From there I worked on my Father's Day cards - needed 3 - one for Dad, one for a special uncle, and one for my brother-in-law. So, here are the cards:
I love using Hero Arts folded cards - such great quality and easy to use. I stamped each with a Hero Arts background stamp. A new fave is the Houndstooth Background, used on two of the cards, and I finally used the Formula Fun background from the HA/Basic Grey (Oxford) collaboration.
I was on a roll so moved on to making a set of cards for my friend Connie (the one who's more like a sister who also sings). She's part of planning a day for the chorus directors in our Region of Sweet Adelines International. She asked if anyone would donate a door prize for the event so I offered a card set. These are the first two I did and I will make a few more using the same set, Hero Arts Musical Clef.
That's it from here. Thanks for stopping by!
