Sorority Wine Glass Souvenirs

My daughter needed souvenirs for her Sorority Sisters.  They were presenting them as gifts for their 10 year anniversary with the Sorority. This is what I came up with for her. There were 38 of them!!! Jesus!!! The things we do for our kids!!!  

I got the image off of Google and modified it a bit. I added the 10 which meant I had to desect her arm, flip and create and longer hand to hold it. Each glass has the name of the recipient on the back.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Veterans Day!!!!

Thank you to the Men and Women would served to defend our Nation. We appreciate your sacrifice.

This is my yearly card for one of my favorite Veterans, Dana. I got her spoiled. She expects a card every year.  I haven't been feeling too well lately but I knew I had to pull it together to get this card done.

Also, I like to  pay homage to my brother, Leonard C. Hines, Jr., another Army Veteran that served our country in the Vietnam War.  R.I.P brother. I love and miss you.

Encouragement Cards

Card Request - Creative Card Angels

 I had to make 2 cards for my card group. One was a request for my friend's Mother-in-law that has been in the hospital for quite some time.  The other one is for a young lady with a terminal illness and suffering from COPD. Let's pray for both of them.

                  Card 1                                                                Card 2

Inside Card 1

As you can see, I used the same card stock for both cards. I used DCVW Butterfly Gardens and DCVW the Glitzy Glitter Stack.  The stamp sets I used are Verve - Inspire Hope and Wonderfully Made. The sentiment inside card 2 is from Stampin Up Elegant Angel.

Cancer Card

Card Request - Creative Card Angels
We were asked to make Encouragement Cards for a gentleman that has stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. His friend, the requester, says he really enjoys getting cards in the mail. Hopefully, this one will cheer him up also.

 Purple represents Pancreatic Cancer.


The card was designed and created with my Silhouette software.

Retirement Card (Extra Large)

I made this card for my cousin. A lady at her job was retiring and they needed a big card for all of the employees to be able to sign. It's 8 x 11. When you put in this many years at any job you deserve a special card. I was told that she loved it.


I used the Spellbinders Renaissance Border along with the Darice Swirl Leaves die. The border was made with Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch. Card stock is DCVW Butterfly Garden.  Of course I use the print and cut feature on my Cameo for the labels and the inside of the card.

Cadet Card

This was a card request for Creative Card Angels, the Facebook group that I belong to. The mother requested encouraging cards for her daughter who had just signed up to serve our country. The last time I posted a Cadet Card, I had two women comment that they would never send their child a card while they were in boot camp because they feared they would get picked on for being weak. I say, Mom knows her child, better than any of us, and knows how to keep her encouraged and strong, so poo on them! 

Inside ( that I use on all my Cadet/boot camp cards)
I cut the stars with my Cameo  and the rest is print and cut. I also added a little Patriotic Washi tape to give it a little pop. 

I hope she enjoyed her card

30th Birthday Card

I made this card for my wonderful daughter who turned 30 in September. She, along with a few others, have a Travel Group and these are the colors they use in their logo. I created everything in my Silhouette Studio Software.  I cut the  "30"  multiple times and stacked it so that it would pop up in the circle.

 I wanted to make her a card as special as she is to me.
At the last minute, her Travel Group, needed some token to give to their customers on a trip to Los Cabo, Mexico. Their other souvenirs didn't pan out. I came up with these bottle tags for the shot bottles they were giving out. They loved them, thank goodness.

Have a great day!!
