You Are My Hero

It's hard to believe that it is the middle of June! Time is flying and you know it won't take long before we're singing Christmas carols and roasting chestnuts by an open fire!  But before those festivities, let's get back to this Sunday, Father's Day! My card today features Lil Hoot, an Operation Write Home stamp set from Hero Arts, the sentiment that comes in the set says it all!

Snail Mail For You

Good Monday to you! I made my card today to enter the Lawnscaping Challenge - Calling all Critters sponsored by Ellen Hudson.  To create my card I used Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables, Stitched Hillside Borders and Spring Showers Lawn Cuts. The Gleeful Gardens stamp set and it companion Lawn Cuts provided the critters and some of nature's handiwork!  In this day and age of electronic communications, nothing replaces the personal touch of snail mail!

Blah Blah Blah

Just a bit of silliness to send to a friend, just because I can! I used stamps from the 12 Days set and the 12 Days Companion Greetings by Julie Ebersol! I extended the phone cord across the card because when I was a kid, a very few short years ago, I was always getting in trouble for stretching it and tangling it into knots! I am so grateful to the genius that invented wireless phones!

Another Bird Crazy

I am absolutely crazy for each of Tim Holtz's Bird Crazy stamps in the set, they make me giggle and smile! I made the card and sent it to a birding expert, as a thank you for an unbelievably wonderful gift! I'm hoping in all his travels, he's never seen a bird quite like this one!
