60th Birthday Card

Here I am again with a 60th birthday card for a man. I haven't put embellishments on it only a Vintage tag from Magnolia Stamps. This little guy is also a Magnolia stamp called Edwin. He is the cutest little fellow. They can both be brought at Diana's store. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder called happy Birthday.
I colored this image with distress inks and over the next few months you should see a lot of improvement in my coloring as I am taking Angie Hunts Distress ink classes. You can find the information here.
 These classes are fabulous. I have learned so much already. Things that you wouldn't think of doing.
 This is just showing the tag tucked inside the scalloped circle. I had to print it on an angle to get it on the tag.
                                                      Here is the finished card

Herbert the Turtle

Hi there!
I have just finished this Easel box card for a friend that is giving me her old Lap Top. I got this idea from Norma's blog. Even filled up the drawer with yummy chocolates.
The stamp is a Digi from karen's Doodles and it is called Special Delivery. His name is Herbert. I think he is kind of cute don't you. My friend collects Turtles so when I saw Herbert I just had to get it. I have colored him with Distress Ink re-inkers. I just put the watercolor paper through my printer and was able to use the ink without any problems. The DP's I used are Stampin Up ones. I didn't have a knob for the drawer so used what I had. It is not a good color but I had to get it finished in a hurry as we were going to their place for dinner tonight. Next time I make one of these Easel cards I will make sure I have the knobs available. I was disappointed with my little bunch of flowers on there and wished I had of done something different. Never mind. Next one will be better.
