Just a quick post to show the card I made for my husband on our 4th wedding anniversary, the paper is BoBunny & is part of the Apple Cider collection & everything is cut using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.
I work at the Days Inn & Suites in Thunder Bay, ON it's the best place I have ever worked, mainly due to its incredible owner & general manager. I had told one of our regular guests that I could never imagine working for any one but Kevin & proclaimed how much I loved my job & the people I work for, so you can imagine my surprise when I found out the hotel was sold to new owners. The new owners take over on July 2nd, it will be odd not working for & with Kevin anymore although I look forward to seeing where the year will take us!!
Anyway I knew I wanted to create a book type of card so that people could write a good bye and not just a small blurb, I got this idea from Jenn's blog as I had seen her do many a retirement card for coworkers. I used some of my Tim Holtz stash in order to give my card the prefect look I was going for.
I used my Tim Holtz time pieces embossing folder on a piece of shattered paper, also chit chat stickers, gears, tissue tape, sticky letters & a metal timepiece. The letters WWKD stand for what would Kevin do, which was something I would say to myself as I try to figure out the best way to deal with issues at the hotel.
Inside the card I used a Creative Time stitched tag & stamp some phrases in Gathered Twigs distress stain.
I love how this card turn out & when his daughter told me that is was so her dad, I teared up & knew that it was prefect!!
I'm going to not only miss seeing Kevin everyday but his whole family since after working together for over seven years you create bonds that are not easily broken or forgotten.
This is a sample of my Christmas card I made last year. I have totally loved this snowman stamp by Penny Black since my sister Caroline first bought it!!! It's stamped on Tim Holtz water paper & coloured with Tim Holtz water markers & then outlined with my Wink of Stella pen to add some glitter!!!... I LOVE these pens!!!
The paper is DoodleBug and those of you who know me, know that my addiction to Doodlebug is just as strong as my addiction to Tim Holtz... well almost as strong!! :)
One of my best friends just got engaged on Monday.... FINALLY!!!!!! My husband Chris introduced them & we are both very excited that they made it official!!
This is the card I made for Erika from all of us at work. I chose purple since it's her favourite colour & used my Cricut to cut out the phrase with my Storybook cartridge, the middle say A Wish Came True... (Erika has been dreaming about this for a while and to quote Disney a dream is just a wish your heart makes) The little heart background is a cricut cut from the Artiste cartridge. I used my Wink of Stella sparkle pen to add a little glimmer to the heart, I love that pen it's adds just the right amount where you want it.
