Hi! Sorry I'm a bit behind on posting these. Didn't feel very well over the weekend (pancreas was cranky - not ugly, but just enough to leave me feeling "blah") so I didn't get to make these cards until today. This first one will go to my brother-in-law.
I used a 4.5x6.5 pre-made base; image is from PC Crafter ("Road Rippers" by Lori Lynn Simms); "chrome" on the car is highlighted with a Clear Sakura Glaze pen; Black Sakura Glaze pen used on wording; Inside reads: "Hope you have a road rippin' & happy Father's Day!"
This next one will go to Chris. Being a biker, he has one REALLY annoying thing that he does - like all bikers, they call their wives "old ladies." Just crawls up my fanny & dies a horrible death. I'm NOT old! He's NINE & a HALF YEARS older than me, for goodness sakes!! I cannot begin to count the times that I've requested he PLEASE not call me "the old lady." *sigh* But I can't change those leopard spots either, so for Father's Day I'm gonna get just a tad even with the stinker...
This is what he'll see when it comes out of the envelope. It's really nice. Classic even. Vintage bike almost in his Club's "colors," 5x7 black background (his favorite color - matches his leathers), great sentiment "Loud, fast, built to last" (which BTW totally fits that LOUD 99 Heritage Softail that he rides), screws in the corners for that added lil sumthin extra. Then when he opens it up...
BAM! *LOL* I absolutely could NOT resist this paper last week when I was over at Ben Franklin Arts & Crafts visiting with Wade, "The Craft Guy." It's double-sided - the bike and "Old Guys Rule" was on one side with a distressed ivory ground & the other side was a charcoal gray with the "brand" emblem in a diagonal repeat pattern. I loved it & it totally fits him. Showed it to my boys this afternoon & they thought it was "Wicked, Sick!" so that means it passed the guy test! *LOL*
Well, that's it for now. I'm off to update the rest of the blog with my June specials from The Angel Company - make sure to check them out, because we've got some really good deals running this month. Over 100 stamp sets are being retired with the prices already discounted at my store (just click on the shopping cart). AND...it's getting close to my 1yr anniversary here at Handmade & Heavenly, so I'm planning a surprise for y'all very soon. Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
