Anniversary Card

A little different type of card for me.  I needed an anniversary card this week and couldn't decide on a stamp to use so I decided to think outside my normal box and made this instead.  I used the sketch from Cardabilities and the heart doily die from La La Land.  I think it looks pretty.  

Entered in following challenges:
Cardabilities: Sketch
Open Minded Crafting: Wedding or anniversary

Elf Christmas

The challenge this week at 52 CCT is a color challenge.  You need to use pastel pink, green and yellow.  These colors aren't my typical go-to colors for Christmas cards but I do like the way my card turned out.  If you have a baby in your family, these colors would make a great Baby's First Christmas card.

Nurse Graduation Card #2

The other day  I shared the graduation card I made for my son to give to his girlfriend.  
Today's card is the card from my husband and me.

 I made the inside of the card with a pop up gift card holder.  Not sure you can see it very good in the picture.  I intend to insert money instead of a gift card.

Nurse Graduation Card

My son's girlfriend is graduating with her BSN this weekend.  He asked if I could make a card for him to give to her.  How could I say no?  He requested I use their university colors (Purple and White) and to use a stamp with a nurse caring for a child. She has found a job already working in the cardiac telemetry unit but her dream is to work pediatrics.  I found this adorable young nurse from Mo's Digital Pencil and decided to make it work.  I stitched the heart rhythm for the border.  I wasn't sure I wanted to use purple thread but I think it turned out pretty cool. 
For the inside of the card I found this verse that was just perfect.  I left space for my son to write his own additional message.

Card Details:
