A card for my mom's friend....

A friend of my mom's had a health issue and was in the hospital for a bit. This was to let her know her pets missed her a lot.

My 6yo made this with AI's

My daughter loves Alcohol Inks... The one, she used the pad and slid it accross the glossy paper (3rd generation). She did two other glossy card fronts where she pounced the AIs on it. She used a pigment ink that wouldn't dry on glossy so we covered with clear Embossing Powder. She loves the texture. This is a Thank You from her...

A masculine birthday card (for my brother)

I made this birthday card for my brother. I tend to struggle when it comes to masculine cards so I'm really happy with how this one turned out.
