The Few.The Proud

So today was the first day of classes for Spring 2011 semester; however due to inclement weather (snow) classes were canceled!  So, I had some fun in my craft room!

One of the first things I did is a layout based off this sketch from ArtfulDelight.  It is the first time I have worked with a sketch, and I really enjoyed it.

This is the sketch...

And this is my layout...

This is for my brother who is getting deployed to Afghanistan in March.  We love him dearly and will miss him, and though we would rather him not go we are more than proud of him.
His name was cut out from Plantin Schoolbook and the stickers are K&Company.

I also had some fun with doing cards, and my hubby even got in on the fun!  He wanted to make a couple to send to the fam, so we did.

This one makes me smile!  
The chicken is from Animal Kingdom and the stamp is from MPS Even More Punny-licous

Jacob couldn't get the hang of stamping, and instead of redoing it he just went over it with a Sharpie...Lol.  Hey, whatever works... 
Again the dog is from Animal Kingdom and the sentiment is Even More Punny-licous.

Not your traditional baby card I must admit, but hey thats why its called a Wild Card.
All from Wild Card.

This fun card is for my Brother-in-law who just had back surgery.
All cuts are from Life is a Beach.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. You must be very proud of your brother. I know I am and I don't even know him. What a great sacrifice to miss this time with him. Let him know how many of us appreciate his sacrifice and willingness to protect us.

    Thank you so much for playing with us at Artful Delight!

    I love your other cards too! I'm on the MPS Design Team and so I love seeing the stamps used! :)
