White Chocolate Birthday

strawberry-birthday

A lady needed a birthday card for a co-worker. One of the “likes” for the birthday girl was white chocolate. I found Chocolate covered strawberries by Beccy’s Place and had my husband change it to white chocolate in Photoshop.  I haven’t mastered cutting frames into cards but one day I will figure it out.

Inside: It’s All Organic!!!

As I was searching for sayings and inspiration on Halloween I came across this saying and cracked up. This is sooo my best friend!! She is into oils, home remedies, etc. (and I am sooo NOT) so I knew I had to send this to her!!! She isn’t into Halloween but I think it will make her laugh. I love Halloween….what is better than acting like a kid, being silly, dressing up and eating candy!! I don’t do the dark Halloween….I like the fun cutesy side of Halloween. That’s why I kept this card fun, bright, cutesy Halloween even though there is a cauldron. And she will be shocked there is a bow as I don’t do many bows. But when I saw this sketch with the little tag I knew it was perfect (I was struggling with how to put that saying on the front and this sketch made it so easy!)  I used a die cut from Miss Kate Cuttables (I took out one of the green layers and bubbles). I used MOJO Monday Sketch #468 for my inspiration.

As soon as I saw the September Digi Bundle at Gerda Steiner Designs I knew I had to have it with this adorable puppy dressed up as a ghost! Then I had to bat my eyelashes at my husband to color it up in Photoshop. What was so cool is I didn’t give him any certain colors to use and this is what he came up with…the cool part is I had 2 sheets of this Doodlebug paper that matches perfectly!! I used MOJObella Sketch #9 as my inspirational.

Take a Break

My hair dresser/friend had a stroke in March and is recovering. They think it was caused by some meds and migraine meds but not totally sure. She is doing amazingly well and was allowed to come back to work last month. To encourage her on days that she can’t do as much as she wants to I sent her this card. I reminded her that her body is healing on the inside and even though she looks healed on the outside her brain is still healing. I wrote this verse inside:
“And my God will meet all your needs
according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
– Phillippians 4:19

Her husband told me she liked pink and Dr. Pepper so that is what I went with. Used old supplies and scraps I had in my scrap drawers!

1) September Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – September 13th is Positive Thinking Day. Make a positive/inspirational card.

I didn’t get to play in time for the NSD Sketch Challenge but I was inspired by sketch #4 (original was from zrobysama.com.ua). I found these papers in my scrap drawers and thought the circle images would work in place of the flowers. I think it turned out pretty good!
