Flowers on a Vine

These flowers were made using the wing of the bird punch.  I use that wing for a lot of different things.  I love my punches.  The vine I hand cut and the leaves are from the same punch.  Can you think of other things I have made with the bird wing?

Age Awareness

The name of this Stampin' Up! stamp set is age awareness and oh my am I aware of my age.  I won this stamp set from my upline  Lisa.  It was on my list of stamps to buy so I was grateful to her and my fellow inkers for voting for my scrapbook.  So I thought it was time to let them all see how I have used it.  Here are 3 examples.

Happy Birthday Mom

Today would have been my mom's birthday.  I wish her happy birthday every year on the blog.  I don't know why but I guess it just makes me feel like I am with her.  When I retired she asked me what I wanted as a gift.  I told her a new bike so she gave me some money to put towards a bike.  I think of her each time I ride it.

See Ya Later

I thought this would be a different kind of card to give someone who was leaving the office or going on a trip.  I found the idea on splitcoast and liked the way she punched the chevrons into the designer paper so the green showed through.  I took this picture when it was in the plastic sleeve so I am not sure if you can see the gators across the top.  Speaking of gators, GO GATORS.  Man they aren't even ranked this year.  What college team do you support.  I like the gators and Seminoles but my favorite Florida team is USF bulls.

Ribbon Heart

This would have been a much better picture to use for my parents anniversary.  Oh well, too late now as it is already published.  The heart and ribbon are bevels but the border is not.  I like this new glass he has been using for borders.  It isn't really a new thing just new for him.  By the way, I know the heart and ribbon look like they are green but they are clear.  The green is the grass showing through the bevel.

Happy Birthday May

Today would have been my mother in law's birthday.  September used to be a big month for me and sending cards.  Not so much anymore.  My MIL saved every card that
I made for her.  If you make cards, does anyone save your cards?  My brother does, pretty good for a guy.

Happy Anniversary

So you may wonder why a ballerina when the title says anniversary.  I needed a post for today and wanted it to be glass since I neglect Jim's work.  Then I remembered it would have been  my mom and dad's anniversary.  I had already picked the ballerina picture out and didn't want to change it.  How can I work my parents into a dancer?   Then I remembered that when my mom was young she took dance lessons.  Yeah I know I am stretching it a bit.  I hope my mom and dad are dancing today in heaven.  Maybe heaven has helped my dad with his dancing.

September Birthdays

Happy Birthday to all the September birthday people.  The birthstone for September is sapphire.  Not that I was thinking of the birthstone when I made this card but it does have a lot of sapphire blue on it.  What I was really thinking was it would make a good guy card.  Do you know the birthstone for your birth month?
