And one for Poppy too...

It was also Dad's birthday this week, so I made him the card below. Excuse the close-up. Suffering from the flu, I think I was a bit groggy and got somewhat carried away. Thankfully, Dads always accept homemade cards with love and care, especially my wonderful Dad. Happy Birthday Poppy!

Carmen Miranda

I clearly didn't keep my promise from my last post to create and post immediately thereafter. But this isn't to say that I haven't been creating in the meantime! In fact, I've made a card for my mom that showcases a recycled Carmen Miranda stamp that she used to send a card to me. We call my Mom 'Mama Shetto' because she is in love with Carmen Miranda and has been known to dance and sing around the kitchen, a bunch of grapes atop her head, crooning away as though she were the Queen of Samba herself. Take a look and let me know what you think.
