When I went to deliver my donated Christmas cards to one of my local nursing homes I ask if there were any residents having a milestone birthday and if there were I would love to make a card for said person. There happen to be a fellow who would be celebrating 101 years soon. Isn't that amazing, wow. His eyesight isn't what it used to be so I made the card with that in mind. Embossing it with a chevron pattern, heat embossing the Happy Birthday, using my Cricut for the 101 and adding the brads for texture. I think I went a little overboard on distressing the ship but I still like the effect.

Here's another Christmas card. The image is a freebie from Beccy's Place, I used the Snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug and the Merry Christmas stamp is from SU

my youngest sister passed away a few years ago and although we had a memorial service for her, we never dealt with her ashes. So a few weeks ago we gathered at our home and had another (smaller) memorial service for her and buried her ashes under our butterfly tree.....I think she'll be very happy there.
