Best Dad Ever

I'd love to know what you think about this card before I make 30+ and send them out to Afghanastan for my husbands unit.  He asked for some Fathers day cards, and would like me to send out 60+ cards, but I don't think I can pull out 60 of them, maybe 30.  I'd like to mail them out asap so that I know they get there with plenty of time to send them home.  So, what do you think?

Wedding card

Here's a wedding card that I made for a cousins wedding.  I've seen this idea several places, so I can't give credit to anyone in particular, but I love how it turned out.

Faux silk technique

Wow, it has been way too long.  I am still here, but I'll continue to be on alot less for awhile.  My husband was deployed and with 3 kids there is simply very little time to do what I would LOVE to do.  Thank you so much for still sticking with me.

I did steal away a few minutes today to do this Faux silk technique.  I have a class tonight, so that is my excuse to come and focus on my passion for awhile.  Here is the card that I will be having my members do.

  I hope you like it.  It was a fun new technique I learned.  If you haven't tried it, you must!  (For any SU demonstrators, you can find the tutorial in your January issue of Stampin Success  on pg. 21.)  For anyone else, let me know if you'd like the directions for this technique and I'll post them.  This picture just doesn't show the real beauty of this technique.  To finish it off, I added a little shimmer spray, so it's so much prettier than this card shows.

 Again, thanks ladies for your support!
