Keep Calm…

Keep Calm Anaheim Ducks Tumber-2





My immediate boss at work is an Anaheim Ducks fan.  I have had this idea for a long time to create a tumbler for her and with the school year coming to a close, I decided now was a good time to give it her.   I wasn’t sure what to put on it but then I decided on going with the “keep calm” phrase replacing “carry” with “duck”.  She absolutely loved it!

That’s it for today.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :-)

InLinkz & Share With Me

Hi friends, it appears that InLinkz has decided to now charge for their service and my “trial period” has ended.  This means the InLinkz link to add your card on the Share With Me page no longer works :-(

I am not willing to pay for the service so, for now, please add any links to cards you’ve made using one of my sentiments to the comments area on that page (see Share With Me link on the navigation bar above) and I will be sure to visit your page to view it and comment.

If anyone knows of another free service similar to InLinkz, please let me know so I can take a look.

Masculine Get Well Card

Spent some time down in my craft dungeon today.  I got the idea for this card the other day when someone was asking about ideas for a masculine card for a golfer who was sick. The juices started flowing and once I formed the card in my mind, I could hardly wait for the weekend to get here so that I could put it together.  I’m loving the play on words that I came up with..

I found the golf bag on google images and added some Band-Aids to the front of it.  I colored it with my copics and then popped it up on the card front.  The inside of the card is also an image found on google images and colored with copics.  Although you can’t see it very well in the photo, the golf ball was covered with some glossy accents to give it a shine.

That’s it for now.  Enjoy your weekend!

Father’s Day

I love my Dad!  He tells the silliest jokes but they make me laugh.  He’s generous, gracious, considerate, sensitive, kind, and thoughtful.  He’s just a really great guy and he makes me smile.  I think my girls would agree that he’s the best Papa ever!

I made this card with love just for him.  It was made using digital papers and I created them all.  Also used was my newest digital freebie sentiment offered here.  I added some buttons and a ribbon to finish it off.

Here is a peek at the verse I created for the inside …

I certainly can’t forget about my husband, the father of my children.   He’s pretty awesome, too.  I don’t think he ever expected that he would end up with two girls given that his family is all boys.  But he’s a great dad and he loves his girls to pieces.  Here is the card I made for him.
