New cards

I've made these over the last several weeks and finally got around to posting them.

Had to make two of these:( I think they turned out really nice though.

Found out how to work the end caps feature on Plantin Schoolbook and LOVE IT!


My favorite one. The black is actually a velvet paper...so sool!

These were for my parents who have Scottish Highlander cattle. My dad asked, jokingly, if I had a Highlander cut. The yak from Zooballoo was as close as I could get. They got a giggle out of it:D

Their anniversary card.

Here is a pic of one of my dad's bulls so you can see the similaritiy;) That is the bull's name on the pic. It was for a Christmas gift.

The Sympathy card is one of my favorite sympathy cards I've seen. So pretty. I'm sorry you had to make 2 though. Sad

The yak card just cracks me up. I think that's great. Smile

oooh, using the velvetly paper on the ladybug is a neat idea. I'd love to see this one in person.

Great cards...tfs!

I'm actually fine as they weren't people close to me or that I even knew, still sad though. One was our Pastor's mother who had a brain hemorrhage and died very suddenly.
The other was Dh's co-worker's father who has been battling cancer for years. He died Christmas morning:(

Veg Da Bull- is cause when he was a calf he was penned near our garden and we would throw all the weeds and veggie tops to him. My brother named him (He was probably 10 at the time) and it just stuck:)

I agree with everyone that I'm sorry you needed two sympathy cards, but you did an amazing job making them.

How are your birth announcements coming? Any progress?

Birth announcements are as far as I can get them without knowing the gender:)
The base is cut as is the scallop for it, but I can't add the colored ribbon, monogram, pic, or stats till baby is here.
It shouldn't take me long to put them together when the time comes though!

And you did the bull justice! Smile That's a very hairy bull - what kind is it?
