My Uncle Myron turns 80 on December 1st and I also made him a card for his milestone birthday! He lives on the coast in Phippsburg, Maine and has lived there all his life so I did a coast themed birthday card. The lighthouse stamp is colored with copic markers. I used Graphic 45, By the Sea paper collection and the embellishments are punches from MS and numbers from Dynamic's. The compass was punched out with 1-inch round punch and put into a bottle cap.

this card on pinterest which is where I found my inspiration!! I embossed the trees with gold and sponged distress black soot for the ground and spicey marmalade for the sky. Below are some more pictures of other cards I made with different colored cardstock framing the card. They will be in the mail tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Sorry that this inside sentiment is sideways but I loved the poem for Thanksgiving.

here and just used punches and circle nestabilities to copy it. I put a strap on the camera with 3/16 inch eyelets so that the card would open and close. Also had to add some bling to the card with a red pearl and a little crystal. Would be a great card for a photographer!!

tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. On pinterest, I saw a bunch of cute gingerbread houses and I got a lot of good ideas from them. This is a great size to fill with Christmas candies. It measures 4 1/2 x 2 1/2. I used the 2 tag punches from SU and MS border punch for the fence. Nestabilities were used for the windows. The candy cane is from an old Stampin Up set and the peppermint lollipop I handmade with a little glossy accents to make to make it shiny!! The wreaths were made with circle punch and SU's blossoms punch. To open the house, just untie the bow and dig in!! I am going to make a few more for Christmas gifts. They are fun to decorate!!
