Teacher's Card set

I've posted this card before...I decided to make a set for my kids' teachers.

Please excuse the terrible photos.

I'm mostly posting this for myself so I can reference them later on. :)

Dynamic Duos #9 My Home

Real quick card I made this morning. 
I saw this week's Dynamic Duos and knew I need to use pink as my choice. 
I absolutely LOVE the Kraft ribbon.
I just ordered some Crumb Cake ink last night.
So today I used PTI's Kraft ink which I love, but I cannot get used to the odd shape.
If you look closely you can see the vellum clouds.
Sending this one to Operation Write Home also.

Happy 50th Anniversary!

My parents are celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary today. I can't believe it. I guess because when I was little people who celebrated their 50th were very, very old with gray hair. Not my parents. They look and act so young! 

About a month ago, my father asked me to make a card for my Mom. I was flattered and more than happy to do it! I thought about it. And thought. And thought. And thought.

Finally it was 3 days before their Anniversary. WHAT?!! 
In my typical procrastination fashion I waited until the very last minute. I am talking glued the last pearl on the card at 4:45pm when I had to get it to the post office by 5. 

When will I ever learn!?!!

I gold embossed the rose on the envelope for a finishing touch.

Stamps: Wedded Bliss by Flourishes, Birthday Builder by Amuse
Ink: Versamark
Paper: PTI, misc patterned paper that I had hoarded
Misc: Gold Embossing Powder, PTI Dies

This next card I made 2 weeks ago when I was playing with vellum. 

I decided to send it to my parents.
