More cards....

It has been really hectic around here. I ended up working a full week as our receptionist was on holidays...not used to that one!

MSN messages have been flying back and forth between my sister and I as our father is pretty ill and has major heart issues. We are just waiting word on the arrangements to have him air-ambulanced from his home to here for surgery. I am really glad I spent the time to make him a card for Father's Day. I spotted a website on origami shirts for Father's Day cards and I just had to try it out.

I had so much fun I also made one for our receptionist for her father...

During my usual day spent at Be Creative hanging out with Heraldine and the crew doing "Make 'N Take" for Father's Day, we were proudly informed that her son Kyle graduated from BCIT in the field of Robotics...Of course, Kyle modeled his grad hat for us and we oohhed and ahhed over the grad pictures. He was so wonderful to me (the Copic-challenged person I am) I thought I would make him a "congratulations on your graduation" card.

I spotted this idea somewhere and I had filed it away for future reference. As I was scanning my computer for card ideas I came across this one and thought it would make a perfect graduation card for him.

I tried to find houndstooth paper but was unable to and I figured "what the heck, do a Google search". I found a nice .jpeg of houndstooth, saved it to my computer and made my own digital paper. I seem to be doing that a lot lately as what I see in my head is not sold in stores!!! A simple gate-fold (love that Scor-pal) with black Bazill base and a strip of houndstooth on one flap. A very classy card!

I hope everyone is having a great summer.....
