In the Stars

August is a month for Anniversaries – ours was last week and my parents’ is this week!

I was inspired by some Pinterest posts of different cards with water coloring that looked like these amazing multi-colored galaxies full of stars.  I decided to try my hand at it.  I am always amazed at how great water coloring can look and how adding some little extras can give it dimension (no pun intended!).  This is the card I made for my hubby – which is similar to the one I sent to my parents.  I can tell you that the photo just couldn’t capture all the shimmer, shine and depth!

Happy Birthday Dads!

September is a big month for birthdays…and our Dads both have their birthdays this week!  My DH and I worked as a team to create this first card for his Dad – he did the stamping, coloring and some of the design.  I did the assembly.  The scarlet and gray (go figure) I made for my Dad.  These were the first pop-up cards from my craft room!  🙂  They were made from a clear stamp set I won from a The Alley Way Stamps blog drawing!  How cool is that!!
