It's been so long but I've been so busy with moving again.  I've taken a new job as the athletic trainer for the University of South Alabama's Baseball team.  Haven't had much time to be making cards and haven't had a chance to organize my scrapbooking material to easily make cards.

This card was as a thank you for my dentist back home in California.  He's been wonderful and so I wanted to thank him for everything he's done.  He's an avid surfer so I decided that I would take the Surfing Riley and make him into a surfing dentist moose!  The colors I chose were based off of the pattern paper I found at a hobby lobby and the green paper up top was cuttlebugged with the leaf folder. I drew in the toothbrush and cut out a little tooth to put in his hooves, and the sentiment was from papertrey ink.  I added some white souffle pen marks on the waves and then just stickled the wave.

Quick little card I made for Topher's sister's 19th birthday.  This card ended up being a lot tinier than I thought!  I think I cut the giraffe (off the Create a Critter cartridge) out at 1 1/2 inches, and the card is 2x2 inches.  Poor Topher had to really squish his handwriting to fit it all in.  I cuttlebugged the pink with the floral folder and borderpunched it with the martha stewart border punch.  Ribbon was from the dollar bin and I just stickled the border to give it some sparkle!  His sister is very girly and loves pink and black.
