Wonder Woman Bravery

Wonder Woman Hero

Inside: You deflected that illness like Wonder Woman stopped bullets! (My friend and I came up with the saying….I have the bestest friend!)

One of our co-workers daughter fought an unknown illness recently which was during her senior year of high school. Through all the test and surgeries they didn’t know if it was cancer or not. They just found out last month that it is NOT cancer!! So we wanted her to know how tough she was through this all and how proud we were of her bravery. The family loves comic books so we thought Wonder Woman was appropriate for the occasion!

CHALLENGES:
1) July Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – vintage/retro. This is a pretty retro wonder woman!!
2) Cardmakers Card Challenge – sketch #8 – I decided to make mine square instead of rectangle. Then I moved the circle from the right to the left and made it a rectangle. And instead of flags on the bottom I did another rectangle.
the original sketch is from Always Playing with Paper found here: http://alwaysplayingwithpaper.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-challenge-4-million-one.html

SUPPLIES:
Stickers: Creative Imaginations (Wonder Woman)
Accents/Tools: The Paper Studio Embossing Folder (stars), EK Success 1/16 pop up dots

Mermaid Shaker

Well I have been wanting to jump back in the Progressive Challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs but just haven’t had the time. I’m hosting the August Card Sketch Challenge at Scrapbook.com so while looking for sketches I came across this one Sketch Saturday #420. So this sketch is #5 in the August Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com.

I thought it was perfect for the monthly image at Gerda Steiner Designs this month and couldn’t wait to put it together. I thought this image would be cute to send to my friend and then I found the saying “So glad you’re part of my world” and knew it was perfect to send to my Best Friend. I have also been wanting to make a shaker card since it was the technique challenge July Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. Well the first card I made I put some of the punched circles too close to the edge so it is not a shaker card. So the next card I kept the edges clear so I could put the double sided foam tape around the edges. I have learned after making my first ever shaker card that there must be secrets to this! I ran my images through my Xyron figuring they needed to be flat. Well the beads are sticking to the edges of the images. I’m so proud that I finally used these beads….I got them when the local store closed in 2006!! But I think my best friend will still like it. Last year I sent her a card every month but this year I have slacked but I’m going to send this one just so she knows I haven’t forgot her!!
