Firefighter congratulations!

Hello everyone!

Today I'm sharing a congratulatory card with you.
My friend's boyfriend's son is going to be graduating from the Firefighter Academy in a couple of weeks and she wanted a special card for him.  I only had very juvenile FF images so I had to get creative.

I went online and found the Fireman's Prayer and printed that out.  I found a metallic red ribbon to mimic some fire.  Then I used my Darice FLAMES embossing folder and the Cuttlebug DIAMOND PLATE folder.

The silver paper is Harley Davidson Diamond Plate Embossed paper and I used the Stampin' Up Slot punch and a Fastenator staple where I attached the red ribbon.

The fire hydrant is from Art Impressions and is part of the Pet Shoppe (Sku#3526) window set.
The Congratulations phrase is from I Brake For Stamps and it's from the Every Day Phrases sheet.

Copic colors:
RV00, RV34, R37, R85

My friend really liked the card.  I hope its recipient does too!

Fire Out Birthday Gift Bag

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a something extra fun with you!!  

I recently got a We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board and couldn't wait to use it!!
I figured it'd be perfect to make a birthday gift bag so I paired it with Art Impressions Ai People Fire Out Set 4371.  

I just love this image and verse!  

My bag measures 2 1/2" x 6".  You can adjust the height but not the width.  (at least the directions say you can't but I know some creative person out there will figure out a way to manipulate it!)

Copics used:
Y35, W1, W3, T5, B23, B24, B60, BG0000,
BG02, BG10, BG13, BG15, BG90, R22, R46,
RV29, E02, E35, E40, E50, E51, E93, E97

I Brake For Valerie's Birthday!

Hello and happy Saturday!!
Welcome to my I Brake For Stamps post for the week.
It's been rainy here lately so I wanted to make something bright and cheery to offset the dull gray outside.

Before you check out my card make sure you remember that I have a coupon code that you can use to save 10% off your IBFS order.  See the bottom of the post for the code and link.

Today I'm sharing a gift bag that I made for a co-worker.  We go back to school VERY soon. (insert big heaving sobs here) and her birthday is Sept. 25.  It's very crazy at the beginning of school so I thought I'd get ahead of the game and make this now.

I used my new We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag punch board to make this.  If you come back tomorrow you can see another bag that I made.  Tomorrow's is a little smaller than this one.  You can choose from 3 different widths of bags, small, medium and large as well as making it any height up to a 12" piece of paper.  This bag is about 8" tall.

Isn't this verse so funny and SO true?!
My little flower is from Wild Orchid.  It's a Champagne Pink Cosmo Daisy 10 pk.
