Card Holder

I had asked my dad if he could make me a box to hold/display cards that I've made. I gave him a very rough sketch of what I had in mind. This is what he made (even has handles on each end). It's perfect! Thanks Dad!

Card I made for our granddaughter who loves volleyball! I copied the volleyball image, covered it with decoupage medium to give it some texture, then cut out. Raised it with tape and bent to curve. The ball actually feels kind of like the real thing. Hope she likes it!

Upcycled Father's Day

I "fussy" cut the lion, lawn mower and grass from a card someone passed on to me. 
I added the D-A-D stickers and then the cute little sun.

The picture on this card was cut from another card and I added the border, sentiment, etc. 
I made the brown leather-look background using crafting paper and decoupage medium.
