A Real Hero

One of my patients, a member of the 100th Infantry Battalion, received the French Legion of Honor last week, France’s highest decoration!! What a fine man he is!! Wish I could share details about him, but you know, confidentiality & all that…

I dug through my Paper Pumpkin stuff & came up with the perfect card for him!

Isn’t this perfect? IMG_8007
The sentiment comes from Starburst Sayings. Here’s what it said on the inside:

A Big Thank You to all our military!!! We’re so proud & grateful to all of you for your many sacrifices!

Graduation Card-in-a-Box

Graduation is such a special day, and it requires a special card!  I thought a Card-in-a-Box would be perfect for this occasion!

Another card in a box to share with you today!  I decided to take my card from yesterday a step further…

It started with that big sun you see in the back and “You make me happy…”.

Oh, Happy Day!

It’s a rainy Saturday in Haiku, but I don’t mind… I have a new stamp set to play with!

Createwithcheryl.me Starburst 1

This uses the Starburst Bundle (#134818 clear).  I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit with these colors!  I think this would be okay sending to a guy or girl.

I really like those cute clips (#129389)!   Except that I seem to have a lot of the coat hangers left over… I know just what I need to make with them, though.
