Two for One Special

I know it's been a while but I've been busy, so today you are getting a 2 for 1 special..lucky you.

My mom's birthday is Monday, and she came over today so I can put the card up now that she has it. She works as a nurse, so Nurse Anya from The Greeting Farm seemed appropriate.

I embossed the Happy was just a wood mounted stamp from Hobby Lobby I stamped a bunch of times with embossing ink. I can't keep it from smudging, well it's not smudging, it's extra powder I can't get off the cardstock...I have an embossing buddy..but it doesn't seem to help. But in this case the smudging matches the paper I used, so it worked out.

This is the inside, I wrote something fun and witty..ha.

These are the Copics I used to color Anya..not very many this time. I always use the colorless makes it look like I can color in the lines.

Now for the 2 part. My mother has asked me to make Christmas cards for the people she works with, which I said I would do since I wasn't going to make my own this year..we're sending out one of those photo card things this year for the first time.
Anyway, so the reason she came over today was to sort of plan out what she wanted. So in the future you'll be seeing more Christmas cards for my mom.

This is the first one that is finished. I have lots of pieces and such of many more cards in the works. But this one was easy to finish up today. She just basically wanted something with religious tones. This stamp is from All That Scraps. It's Cookie Crumbs Reason for the Season.
I used lots of star brads.
This is the inside, I haven't decided if I will use one of the sentiments that came with the set or not..I'm waiting for mother feedback. Go figure.

Anyway, that's all for now. I have lots more things to be working on, and since we have no plans for today I hope to finish up some more stuff.
