A Couple of Special Cards

I was just looking over some of my pictures taken in March. I found two cards that I had not posted. The first one was for my daughter's birthday. We had been traveling the first of March and got back home the day before her birthday. It took me about a week to get her card made. It was a little too late to say "Happy Birthday"; I had talked with her by phone on her special day. When I saw this sentiment, I knew that it was what I wanted to add to her card. Purple was always her favorite color when she was in high school. I came across the purple card base and the white embossed panel. I heat embossed the sentiment using white detailed embossing powder. After cutting the leaves with one of my dies, I used some punches to make the flowers. I am truly thankful for Angela; she is a very special daughter.


This was a thank you card even though it does not have any "words" on the front. I made the front panel a long time ago when I was doing some watercolored background washes. It had been in a scrap box for many months just waiting to be used. The rose is a Penny Black stamp that I had colored with markers, spritzed with water and stamped. It made the perfect card when I was in a hurry and needed to get the card done. What do you have lying in your scrap box just waiting to be used?
