Birthday: Driving By With Birthday Cheer





The colors in the picture are a bit off.  I used Lost Lagoon and Early Espresso; the picture should be darker and richer in color.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Sympathy: Loss of a Pet Cat


Aaron designed this card from a Pinterest CASE.  She created the rainbow from Work of Art with colors ranging from yellow, orange, red, teal, and violet.  The cat and paws and from C is for Cat.  A simple yet complex design.

All Occasion: Live Laugh Love with Beautiful You






Aaron made this card as a thank you card for a coworker.  Her coworker is always there to help!  The image was stamped with black ink on the Very Vanilla.  Then, she stamped the same image on Peach Parfait and fussy cut the dress out.  Then the dress was glued onto the original image.  Quite a striking look!
