Way to Go Kyle!

My son Kyle was very involved in a fabulous project in which a young woman’s dream of attending a Chicago Blackhawks Hockey game came true …. I created this card for him to just say how proud and excited we were for him! Love the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack … lots of different, very cool patterns.

Way To Go Kyle

If you have a few minutes, I’d highly recommend watching the piece he helped create from the experience …. it’s fantastic! (The Sportscenter highlight was very cool!) Click on the lower left corner of the video below to play.

Thanks for checking out my post today … so proud of the work my son does and what a fine young man he is :))

The next couple of posts celebrate 2 wonderful men in our family …. our son-in-law Pat and son Kyle. Today’s post is Pat’s celebratory card …. he had a fabulous year (he worked very hard!) and was recognized for #1 sales in his company! Since I know he does not read my blog, I thought I’d share his card first as they should just be reaching both of them soon.

I will post Kyle’s card in the next couple of days …. he reads my blog (or at least gets notification as he is my webmaster behind the scenes!)

Pat’s card was made with the Bravo Stamp Set … very fitting for the occasion! I heat embossed the sentiment on the Typeset Designer Series Paper after adhering the paper to a layer of Very Vanilla Cardstock to add some stability.

Pat's Congrats

#1 Sales

We are so proud of him! I used the Skinny Mini Alphabet for the inside of the card … 🙂

I still have a few spaces left in my All-Occasion Card Class on Tuesday, February 3rd class at either 9:30AM or 1:30 PM in Tucson, AZ. Come stamp with a great group of gals … no experience necessary! RSVP here to reserve your spot.

Sheltering Tree Thankful for You

I spent a couple of hours the other day creating 20 cards for different people in my life, using the Sheltering Tree stamp set in the new Occasions Catalog … it’s a lot of fun and very versatile to use.

Thankful for You Sheltering Tree

I used both the Thankful for You and Thinking of You sentiments for the bottom of the card. I heat embossed the sentiment in White Embossing Powder to make it stand out a bit. Fringe scissors added the blades of grass and the leaves on the tree are stamped twice, once using Strawberry Slush ink and on top, using Pink Pirouette.

Hope you enjoyed the card today! All of the supplies used are listed here:

Price: $29.95
