National Aviation Month is my first card 

and guess what, its a two for one special as I'm combining my I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose for November 10, Sketch #2

  • all edges were inked for that added texture and viola ... a card saluting Aviation . . . my dad loved planes and was in the Air Corp while my brothers were in the Air Force. This is a picture of my daddy from the Air Show with a plane he was a bombardier

My next card is to for November 16th for Button Day .... now, those who know me know that I have tins upon tins of buttons ....

  • card was cut 6 x 6 inches using Nana's Nursery - girls
  • background was cut 5.75 x 5.75 inches Paper Pizazz Pink/Yellow Plaid
  • bear was cut 5-inches using a retired Little Scraps of Heaven Cute as a Button file using my scraps
  • the bear was just adorable and needed a bear on her one ear
  • granted my lettering is crooked but then again it depends on which way to look
