Tonight, I decided I would only use the things we got mom for Christmas. This was in part because I don't have them when I leave and in part because they are cool. Before I share the cards, I wanted to share one of my gifts. I got a framed picture of Bubba. Bubba is this big mechanical gorilla that stands on the corner in my home town by the vacuums cleaner store. They dress him up for various holidays. He is pictured here in his Christmas outfit. He is pretty ragged and ugly, but I used to beg my Mom and Dad to drive by there when I was growing up. Do you have these sort of odd landmarks where you grew up?
Enough of Bubba. Here are the cards. My mom was doing Valentines Day and I was playing with some designer paper. Here is the set.
Here are closer views of Mom's.
Here are mine. The first is a birthday card.
The second two are some flowers I made with the oval punch. It was fun. I used the crop-a-dile to punch the whole through all the layers and once and add the brad. It was pretty easy. I like the way the came out. The ink is all mellow moss.
Hope you have a safe and happy new year.
