Congrats Engagement Card

I made this for a friend's son whose engagement party is this weekend.   I was so excited to get the stamps yesterday so I could try out this idea.  For the ring I used a "screw eye" that you put into the wall to hang things on and cut the end off. A whole packet from the dollar shop only cost $1.50.  I couldn't find any cheap earrings so this worked.  Had so much fun.  The hearts and word is embossed. And used the dies to cut the elephant's out.  I am totally into Lawn Fawn at the moment.  Will put this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - die crazy.  And since I have used Lawn Fawn I hope to put it in the Lawnscaping challenge -Distress Mania.  I used Tim Holtz distress markers (hope that is what they mean).  The link to Lawnscaping is

Get better!

I made this card for my sister-in-law who managed to snap a tendon in her leg while at the gym.  I am putting it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Die Crazy.  I cut all those band-aids out using the Lawn Fawn stamp and die set since Gail has a very big band-aid on. Plaster now she has had it operated on. And I had to put googly eyes on one band-aid.  I aimed to make it as colorful as could be so it's nice and cheery.
