Happy 200th Birthday, Perrysburg!

Hi everyone!  I live in  Perrysburg, Ohio, a suburb of Toledo.  Today is Perrysburg’s 200th Birthday and there are lots of celebrations starting today and  throughout the year. Here is a link that tells you a little about the great history of our town! So in honor of the birthday celebration, here are the cards I made:

For this card, I used my Cricut to cut out the numbers.  I took my own photographs of the Commodore Perry Monument downtown, and of Fort Meigs, and changed them to black and white on my computer.

 

 

For these cards, I used a Jillian Vance Ohio die and other word dies that I have.

Our downtown area is very quaint, and this die from Taylored Expressions was perfect to use!  The twine is from Trendy Twine.

We have many beautiful Historic homes in our city, and this stamp from Stampers Best  reminded me of them.

A huge parade is planned for July 2nd!  This is a Taylored Expressions die.

So, let the party begin!  Happy Birthday Perrysburg!  “Be Good!”  Debbie

Realtor Congratulations Card

I wanted to share with you a fun card that I made for my husband’s daughter to send to her daughter, who just passed the test to become a Realtor.   I cut a rectangle for the house itself and embossed it with a polka dot embossing folder.   The roof, window, and door are from a Memory Box house die set, the sun and clouds are from W plus 9, and the grass and tulips are from Impression Obsession.  Then I just used my Office program on my computer to make her picture smaller and create the sign.  I know she will love it! Best wishes Sadie, you will be great!   “Be Good!”  Debbie
