St. Patty's Day Card

Alright, I know St. Patty's Day card in May? I should be doing a Cinco de Mayo, but you are getting St. Patty's Day. I said I am way behind.

I learned how to do this Swing Card from the Internet. My new favorite card to make. The image I used is Tiddly Inks. I think she does the sweetest images. I used Copics for the coloring, some of the techniques I learned in my class...love the way her hair turned out.

This is an Irish Blessing I absolutely love that I found on the Internet and computer generated it. You can by the stamp, but I like that I can alter the font and size. The shamrock stamp I purchased at the dollar bin at Joanns. Love deals.

Car's Birthday Card

I think it is about time I finally posted something. I am so far behind that one of these days I am going to have about 10 posts just to catch up.

Wesley turned 3 in March and it is now May...yep, a little behind. Wesley is a Cars maniac. So much that he has a certain McQueen he carries around everywhere with him. He tubs with it, eats with it, watches TV with it...even sleeps with it. So I thought it would be appropriate to make him a McQueen card.

I cut McQueen at 7" using the Disney Cars cartridge. The bigger the better, lots of little layers. I ended up cutting one day and putting together another day. I also cut the Paper doll at 4" from EDPD. The car that the boy is holding, the image on the shirt and the images on the shoes were all photos I downloaded from the internet.

See I told you he holds that car everywhere! I also make the boys giant signs so when they wake up in the morning they see it. All done on the computer. The picture of him in front of the sign did not turn out so well.

He loved the card and it is sitting on his dresser until I can get it into his Birthday Scrapbook. Seeing how I am 3 years behind on his book, it will be there for awhile :)
