IB172 Happy Retirement

   paper hugs from the heart ♥ week seventeen

We are back with a new challenge this week @ IB card challenges. 


I was inspired by the grey/silver against the white with pops of green, theme, and palm trees.

How Lucky We Are...
I absolutely LOVE this quote by Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne)and knew I would be using it on retirement cards this year.  We have so many co-workers/friends retiring this year, friends we've shared memories and laughs with and so it seemed only appropriate to share this sentiment with them.


And here's the sketch this week, inspired by the photo inspiration.



Lovely Friend card


I moved the sentiment up to the tag (circle) in the sketch, and stayed with a summery theme.

I was inspired to create another card using the sketch but decided to rotate the large block and move the circle to the bottom, but it was completely inspired by the sketch, it definitely jumpstarted creative ideas.
I chose to use the Winnie quote again for this retirement card.

  paper hugs from the heart ♥ week sixteen

We are back with a new challenge this week @ IB card challenges. 


I was inspired by the dogs, background, and theme.

Birthday Wishes card

I love this sweet digital image from Lili of the Valley.  The background was fun to blend and my kids said it reminds them of sherbert, I thought so too, fun to do.  I used the same technique from THIS POST and the results are so smooth and fun!

  

And here's the sketch this week, inspired by the photo inspiration.
