A Steampunk Masculine Card

What better card can one give to an engineer who's turning 50 than one that's Steampunk-inspired?

I used paper from DCWV and Prima, Tim Holtz and Graphic45 stamps, Tim Holtz dies and spinners then inked everything and voila!  The perfect card.

Happy 50th Deane!  May you have 50 more. :-)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sandy, our DT sister came up with a heart theme in celebration of this special month.  I made a mailbox using the Lovestruck Cricut cartridge.  The mailbox was cut at 11 1/2".  I used the Be Mine paper pack from Echo Park, which is something that I had kept untouched for the four years that I owned it, primarily because I am so in love with it that I loathed using it. It is one designer paper collection that I feel is so me.  Love also means sacrifice, so I ultimately decided to sacrifice a single page.  (sigh!) I added some daisies from Prima, pink cabochons, pink and white pearls and some stickers from the Be Mine collection to embellish my mailbox.
