Tie one on!

I made this card for my Hubby for Father's day. He's a Chartered Accountant and partner in his firm...this basically means he wears alot of ties. I thought this cut was just too cute to pass up. I had to make my own sentiment on the computer because I just had to use this pun...tee hee!! I love all the bright colours.

  1. Bazzill-teal, rust, lime and lipstick pink
  2. Imaginisce-Animal Crackers kaboom line
  3. Bo Bunny lime dot ribbon
  4. EK Success-edge and corner punches
  5. Stampin up slot and label punch
  6. CTMH sentiment stamp on the front, black ink, tie stamp, Pacifica ink
  7. Cricut carts- George(word bubble), Simply Charmed(tie and shirt)
I used a base card of 4 x 5"...cut the word bubble and shadow at 1.45"...cut the shirt and tie at 4.38". Of course I pop dotted all the cuts...gotta love pop dots!

Easter card 4 Donna

I made this card for my pal Donna. She was haunting me on one of our Scrap n Yap days about the fact that she was making all these Easter cards for friends and family and I wasn't planning on mailing out any. I felt this was a tradition that I didn't want to start...I do make cards for my kids and the kids that I give Easter presents too, but I didn't want to send out Easter cards like I do at Christmas. She nagged and nagged...and I didn't give in...OK so I made HER a card...she's're not supposed to upset a pregnant person...So's your @#$%$#@ card...
