Retirement card

My nephews school principle is retiring this Spring and I was asked to make a card for all the kids to pass around.
THANKS is stamped inside... now that I look at it I am not so happy with the turnout!

All card stock is Bazill, The Yellow and White are the Bling type.
The Stamp set is Heart Felt Thanks by SU
I welded the name using Old West Cricut Cartridge

Spring PSF Dork Swap

This is for a swap I joined at...

There is never any regrets to joining swaps with these ladies... WOW the talents they have!!

Horse Tent Card

I did this card for the Corrosive Challenge #56 Paper Piecing

The tent card style is inspired by Karen and Chris

Chris had this link on her blog for the instructions Just Magnolia

The whole card is done using Old West Cricut Cartridge.
I should have read the instruction on how to make a tent card first... I welded this all together (including the folded piece in the middle!)
The boards on the back are a second cut so I could get the 'grain', same as the fence in the front.
I hadn't realized that when you weld things together you lose all the line on the insides until my boards all lost their grain

B'day Card for Cameron

It seemed like a good plan when I saw the Corrosive Challenge #54, but now that it's made it doesn't seem quite cute enough for a 6 yr old!
and I see now that I was a week off on what I looked at! LOL

All Cricut... Old West

All of the card stock is scraps (except the card of course!)

I CB the first mat with Dots.

The greeting is SU On Your B'day

My birthday!

Well let me tell you what happened on Thursday at work.

We are in a strip mall and at the end is a sports bar and restaurant.
Well the owner, Dave came in at 9 with a box for me to ship and he left it with me to deal with.
I felt the price was a bit high so I walked down to confirm he was okay with it.
I also asked, "so you give free b'day drinks?"
He replies "for you?
"Grab a glass fill it with ice and top it off with a splash of water!"
Brat! LOL
Well a bit later his wife comes in to send a fax and I tell her he's a meanie!
We laugh and I tell her why.
About 11 one of the cooks opens the door for Dave to bring a a huge box on the dolly. I am busy with someone else and he asked for my boss Dick anyhow.
Well then in comes Dave's wife and another one of the cooks, so I am now giving the one cook grief for not making my favorite soup for me. Misty says I need to go help Dave lift this box on the scale, they can't stand around waiting for Dick anymore.

I walk over and the bar tender JUMPS OUT OF THE BOX!
He yells Happy B'day! and hands me a balloon, scared the stuffings right out of Dicks sister who is working with me! LOL

OH man it was so funny! This is the second time they have scared me.

Well Troy, the one in the box, scraped his knee while they were stuffing him in the box, and when he jumped out he head butted Dave (his boss)
So Troy has a boo boo on his knee and Dave has a black eye!

Cards for 9 yr old

My sister asked me to make her 2 cards for a couple of Creeps friends.
Since they are packing up and can not get to any of thier craft stuff.
I used up some Bugs & Kisses imagaes I have, Cricut, Platin Schoolbook and Walk in my Garden.
The girls card is done with the Stair Technique and the boys card is the Tri Shutter technique.

53" of piggies

I keep bugging Creep to give me his ceramic pigs. I don't think I really need anymore!
I always wanted a PIGGY Bank, not a bank of just any shape, but a PIG. Then it became the thing everyone seemed to give me.

In 2006 (I think) the Dorks got involved in some upset over the biblical part
"Pearls Before Swine" Matthew 7:6
and then Pigs became our mascot. Better yet, if they are wearing pearls!

Do not persist in offering what is sacred or of value to those who have no appreciation for it, because your gift will not only become contaminated and be despised, your generous efforts could also be rebuffed and perhaps even openly attacked.

Clint picked up a stuffed piggy that is wearing pearls, a necklace and earrings!

Sadly, Creeps bank got broke during the packing process. It was just too full!
