Nurse Thank you's

In the chaos that was the end of the school year, I knew I needed to come up with a few thank you's for school.  My daughter is a type 1 diabetic and has spent a lot of time with the nurses.  Having nurses at the school certainly gave me piece of mind.  They were awesome and adored Tori.  Even if she is a 14 year old! These are the cards I made to go with their gifts.  The colors where chosen to match the Tervis cups we gave them.

Super simple!  I used my new Hero Arts Ombre ink pads.  I believe both background stamps I used are from Hero Arts as well.    Thanks for stopping by!

Father's Day

It's that time of year!  The time where I struggle to come up with masculine cards for Father's Day.  I find it difficult when the dad in question doesn't like sports, hunting, or cars!  In fact, my father-in-law likes computes (not video games!).  So I went hunting through my stash and came across Teen Routine by Paper Smooches.  I think it ended up being just what I needed.  The card design is a CASE from a card I came across but don't remember where!

Inks used are Night of Navy and Sahara Sand from Stampin' Up.  Patterned paper is from Basic Grey.  I used die cut letters from Lawn Fawn which I then colored with Wink of Stella and topped with glossy accents.  I also used Wink of Stella on the navy strip.  I didn't take a picture but on the inside I cut out a mouse and computer, then mounted on foam tape.  I drew in the cord from the mouse to the computer.
