Baptism Card

I made this baptism card for someone at work.  I had forgotten I had order some shimmery paper from Stampin Up and it came yesterday (I'm on vacation...Yippee).  It was perfect for this card.  Although the picture does not show how pretty it really did look.

The Wedding Cartridge

A2 Card (5.5 X 4.25)
Everything is with Stampin Up Shimmery White paper
Flower Vine Sizzix embossing folder
The cross was cut at 4" in shadow and then regular cut
Walmart ribbon
and here is the verse I found on the internet:
You’ve been a special blessing
Since the day that you arrived,
Bringing so much happiness
And filling hearts with pride…
And now that it’s your
Christening Day,
This brings a special prayer
That God will always keep
You in the shelter
Of His Care.

Retirement Card

I made this card for a wonderful women who is retiring from where I work after 26 years of employment.  She is Irish so you will understand why I made this card.

The caldron will say "Flo's Retirement Fund" .  I didn't have clear labels so some women are work will add that for me since I am on vacation and will show up for the gathering later this week.  Here are the dimensions:

Simply Charmed Cartridge:

5" X 7" Card from a prepared pack from Big Lots

2.75" on Pg. 32 -- The shift Leprechaun (Kicking up his heels) --
I put him on a homemade action wobble (if you would like to know how to make the homemade action wobbles go to http://www.paperboutique.blogspot.com/

2.75" on Pg. 33 -- The Caldron and all the layers
I flocked his beard and used gold stickles on the coins.
The words "Lucky U" I punched from some letters I found in a paper stack. I inked around the letters.

Since she is Irish I printed off an Irish verse I found on the internet:
May you look back
on the past
with as much
pleasure as you
look forward
to the 
~Irish verse~
