Manly Monday Celebrate with Flames

My cards today came to from my then SIL. You see, I had made them for nephews birthday and they never sent them out. I was hurt and pissed because of the time and resources that went into these cards. She did give them back when she could have thrown them away.
The first card is the original invite, I cut a bunch of them up and created some new cards.

Thanks for stopping by.

Peace from our home to yours

I had a bunch of tags I wanted to use on cards. Here’s a link to the TAG.
 For this tag I paired it up with a vintage cardboard picture frame. Check out how the edges of the tag are tucked inside those slots where the edges of a vintage photo would be.

 For the sentiment I took a leftover piece of watercolor paper and stamped it with black ink and a Hero Arts sentiment. I put foam tape behind that sentiment but only in the center.
 The background paper is unknown. Thanks for looking.

Deep Red stamps Drama card

One of the kids graduating was into drama and theater and so I made this card. Different from my normal graduation cards but kind of fun to be able to do something like this because it was made for them.
The movie clapper stamp is by Deep Red stamps and I did 1st and 2nd generation stamping with black ink. I found the drama faces on a Cricut cartridge. I put some graduation hats on top of their heads.

Adelynn sign

Sorry for my absence, The last 10 months has been insane. I’m feeling a lot of tensions but I’m trying to learn how to balance them all.

I had made the A and she liked it so much we finished her names.

 It turned out beautifully. So much that we have to do the other t2o girls.
Have a blessed day and be thankful for those around you.

Thank you 😊
