Zoo animals for birthdays

Welcome to another edition of "Cards for Co-workers"...this card was for a co-worker's grandson, who turned 1 today. I got this great birthday paper from a secret sister swap, so I just had to use it. I decided to go with a general zoo animal theme, and I think it pretty much turned out cute. Kind of a simple card for my style, but I like it. I combined digital and non-digital, in order to make the sentiments personalized for the co-worker. Anyways, here it is!

So we've been having boat-loads of snow over here, so I haven't had much time to do much more than shove snow, work longer hours at work because of the snow making me late or I had to make up a day's worth of work. I hope once things get more settled down I can work on more papercrafting...I've been dying to make a Valentine's day card. Ooo..I can't wait till February!
Anyways, have a great Saturday!

Snowmen Saturday

I know, its been a VERY long time, like before Christmas time, long time since I've been on the blog-o here. I've started another blog: to track my long journey towards weight loss and better health. I finally got time today to work on a card for a friend and my Friday Night Card Club January cards (Snowmen/Snowflake theme).
The card for my friend, is a miss you/going away card for him, since he is moving to Alaska. He leaves on Monday, so I wanted to make him a wintery card. I went with this adorable penguin...but if you ask my husband, penguins are not in Alaska. (but I don't care...he was just too cute). Anyways, I spent a decent amount of time on this, since I wanted it to be a nice card- since we won't see him for a while.

And here is my Friday Night Card Club card. I had made these cute little tags earlier, then decided I wanted to use them for the cards- so I made a pocket card. Sadly however, I don't have enough snowflake paper, so I went with different background for each card.

Lots of snow around here too, as we have been having a snowstorms over and over around here.
Anyways, off to bed soon and  I hope ya'll have a great evening!
