Hometown Summer Album - so far

This album is for my husband's birthday.  I don't think that it will be complete by his birthday, but I wanted to show off how it's coming along.  I've LOVED every minute of the work that I've done on this project ..

Tea Swap card & Good Luck on New Job card

Today was a productive day.  I made this card for the August Tea Swap.  The theme is "Pink" & I really enjoyed working on it.  The flower on this card was made by my dear friend, Zeffy.  It matched perfectly.  For the inside pockets I used a doily cut in half. 

This card is for a colleague that's leaving our Dept.  The chicken connection is one that she'll instantly understand & we, as a Dept., want her to think fondly of us after she's left.  We hope that this card brings a smile to her face.  I loved the colors & think that they reflect our personalities within the office.

3 Cards on a Saturday

Here are some cards that I made today ... I'm pleased with how they came out ... Let me know what you think ~

 This is the engagement card that I made for our nephew.  He recently proposed (& she said "yes").  I wanted to make them a card to celebrate this very special day.
 This card I'm calling Bride to Be ... but I'm not sure who I'm going to give it to.  I wanted to play with a doily, an image that I received in a RAK & some lovely papers that I had around the house.  The lace matched perfectly & I think that the bling in the hair adds so much.
I love Webster's Pages & look for any opportunity to use them.  This card was made using a 6 x 6 page & I intentionally left the sentiment off so I can add it whenever I want to use it.  This card would be a lovely birthday card or a fun "new home" card or an elegant thank you card.  I'm keeping my options open.
