Alaska photo wedding

Son David called on his way to a wedding - he didn't have a gift, he didn't have a card, and if I would MAKE a card, he could tell them he was not late, he was merely waiting for the custom card to arrive.
The couple met in Alaska so I found a photo on the internet and made this card.

Nise, if you click to enlarge it, the blotches are from glue on my scanner bed and are not on the card >^..^<

David's Birthday Card

Amanda can't have all the fun with 30 cupcake cards: today I made ONE card for David that took all morning. But I am tickled as heck at how it turned out. He asked for apple crates from Michigan for his birthday -- yeah, and I WOULD mail an apple crate to New York ... -- he uses them for his books. Lucky for me the apple orchard didn't have any labeled "Michigan" so I bought him a jar of apple butter instead. He is also getting a beautiful dark wood mixing spoon, a set of new sheets to match the quilt I sewed him, and some pumpkin spice coffee because he introduced me to Starbucks Pumpkin Spice lattes when we went to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade several years ago.

Monday makin's

The first card has computer generated text ... that is when I really get lazy or can't find a text stamp I want to use.
The pink card has Elemental Doodles text, it says Kindred Spirits. Sweet!

You made my day

What do you think of the smaller image size? I can get more on a page if you want to scroll down, but they are smaller to see.

Any feedback ? Please click on COMMENTS below and let me know what you think.

Found the punch art bird online but adapted him for my card. Cute, huh! I tried uploading both the scanned version and the one I used a camera for just to see how the quality would show online.
