Farhan's Birthday


I am really excited to show you another Nicole original with incredible customization.  I started with the 4 Step Card technique and then did awesomeness with it.  My friend wanted this card to be very special. Farhan was turning 40 this year and he is super creative, athletic and philosophical.  Therefore below is what I came up with.


The coat of arms you see is a coat of arms that Farhan created for the Regina Cricket Club, The Cavaliers.
I imported his creation into MTC and then my KNK Zing machine happily cut it out!  I think it turned out brilliantly.  Then instead of adding the team name at the top and bottom I cut out a Happy Birthday instead.

For the background, I used a few Tim Holtz and Stamp Scapes sentiments to appeal to his philosophical side.   I also cut out his name.

On the inside, I printed out and colored a person doing cricket and used nestibilities for the background shape.  I found a cute poem and adhered that too.

This is one of the most exciting and fun cards I have ever made.  It's super fun making one of a kinds for people.  Especially when they have fun hobbies that you can play around with.

Thanks for dropping in,

Leaves and more leaves!

Good morning peeps.  Are you ready?  Ready for the amazing that is fall? I am.  It's my favorite season.  I love the colors and the smells and the fresh vegetables and how I no longer have to mow the lawn!!

This was using the soot technique.  Isn't it neat-o?
