The cards I created for her are of a more "simplistic" style. Not too many layers or ribbons ... don't need the extra cost for postage! The aqua card (top middle) is actually only designer paper with a sentiment stamped in the upper left corner. The image used on the yellow card (bottom middle) is a digi sketch created by my friend Teri Sherman. Please check out her digi store called Delicious Doodles.
And since Aunt Jenny has SIL & grandsons, I thought I'd better make her a few masculine birthday cards too. The two lower cards were made using my Stampscapes! I always seem to reach for these images anytime I need something masculine! (click on images for a larger view)
