Variety of Cards...

This lovely card was made by my 11 year old daughter.  Right before going on a family vacation this year, we had to say goodbye to our 16 year old Westie, Nala.  This was a sympathy/can't wait to go on vacation card.  Very nice work Mya!!

The vintage car spins across the front of the card.  Loved making this one for a teen boy's birthday.

Loss of a pet sympathy card.

This card is making its way to the other side of the world for a wedding in Japan!!  We hosted a Japanese student one year, who became anther family member to all of us, and her sister is getting married.

Yellow birthday flowers!!

This card was sent by a friend to her daughter in Germany.
