Nap Time Is My Happy Hour card



I'll admit I do enjoy a good nap now and then.  This little guy looks like he's most certainly enjoying his.  I wanted to use the black background so much so I dragged out my dreaded heat embossing tools.  I'm not the best at it but I'm trying.

I do love this quote by Vince Lombardi on this card.  It says what you need to do to get through life.  Get back up and continue on your journey.  I colored this little guy in Vikings colors as I'm a true Minnesota girl at heart (and only a mile from the state line).

Eat. Sleep. Rink. Repeat. Hockey card




Hockey season will be coming soon and I'm excited as a Minnesota Wild fan.  I do feel for hockey parents though.  They are always on the run and this card is perfect for them.  I used my oval die and only cut halfway to create a rink effect with the metallic paper.  I added the enamel dot to represent a hockey puck.
