I have a quick post of a couple cards I have had to work on (1) for AFIS Internet, Inc. a Retirement card and (2) for work, a 20 year Anniversary...

  1. Hi Rachel,
    Both cards are nice. Love the first one best. The leaves really popped out did you add anything on the leaves?

  2. Hi Rae, I love your anniversary and especially retirement card because you never see them in the shops anymore (I guess these days you are never meant to retire) As for your craft show I hope you have a wonderful time and please do post some pics..Mine were a little ordinary but my side kick was exhausted by the end of the day and I was too busy (as I said in my post) buying all the goodies :) Have fun!!Lynn

  3. Beautiful cards, Rae! Love the Anniversary card~it so personal and very thoughtful of you.

  4. I love the bright and cheery color combo of the retirement card (you know me and color) and I love the fun and funky look of the pink and white houndstooth anniversary card! Very nice work Rae! Glad the "words" made you laugh, gotta keep doin' that don't we...

  5. These are both great... I love that multi colored ribbon on the first card... way cool!
