Thought I'd share the two cards we did for Mary's Workshop on Saturday.  This first card has pulled double duty this week.  Once as the workshop card and once as a retirement card for a co-worker who will be retiring this next Friday.  The "typed note" was different of course for hers.

  1. Both are fantastic. The bunny is adorable but I'm really drawn to the graphic style of the typewriter creation. And the patterned paper used is perfect on it! I need that one!!!

  2. Both of these are great cards, but i especially love the little bunny card! I really like how you added texture to the DSP with the lattice EF...nice!

  3. Lynn, I saw someone do that with some other DSP and just loved the effect. It makes the already beautiful DSP even more amazing!

    Danita, I thought of you when the typewriter stamp first came out. You'll just have to get it and start creating and the paper too... crafting is healing. hehe!
