Starting Over...

Love computers but not ones with BIG FAT VIRUSES! That is what I experienced and lost everything. Including all the pictures of the cards I have made over the years. So I am starting over and I have a few cards to share today. Two birthday cards and a "U are the best" card.

My father-in-law had a birthday today and I always struggle to make a card for a man so I looked for inspiration from Dawn McVey on My Favorite Things. I have seen several of her "guy" cards and they are all great. Check out the link below.
The next birthday card is for a co-worker. Similar to the first card...guess I was on a Felt Thickers kick. Ha
The last card is for my son's first grade teacher from last year. I overheard him telling my kindergartner the other day how great she is and that he would be so lucky if he got her for a teacher next year because "she is very very very nice and she doesn't yell at you". I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to let her know what an impact she made on my son's life.
Please excuse the photos for now as I am still teaching myself how to edit them in the new version of Photoshop we recently purchased. I am certain I will get better as time goes on. Hopefully.
