Map Father’s Day Card

car map fathers day

In my youth, we traveled by car (I knew no one that flew anywhere!). My Dad taught me how to use a road map (and how to fold one properly!). This is NOT his card, but maybe I will make a larger version for him!

Within the last month or so, I splurged on the My Mind’s Eye Hello World 6 x 6 paper pad. I picked it up on sale, so it must not be NEW. I liked the colors and the travel theme. Here is the My Mind’s Eye Hello World! 6 x 6 pad:

60th Anniversary Card

60th anniversary 2015

Did you know that the 60th anniversary is the Diamond Anniversary? I had to look that up, so I knew which way to go with this card. I have never made (bought or sent) a 60th anniversary card before.

This is for the in-laws…she is the fan of yellow, he is the fan of blue. Silver glitter paper is being the “diamond”.

There is a vellum tag offset behind the navy one.

Shades of Blue Birthday Card

mme indie chic blue birthday

Here is a quick birthday card in blue.

I splurged last month and bought a retiring My Mind’s Eye designer paper pad (Indie Chic “Nutmeg”). I love blues, and I have a few relatives who love yellow, so I will get a lot of use out of this pad.
