Retirement Party favors and a challenge

Hi everyone- hope you're having a nice hump day!

These are the favors we made for my co-worker's retirement party, my friend/co-worker Kelly helped me put them together. I used a sizzix die and paper punched the flowers. I popped up each layer w/ a 1/8" pop dot. Everyone at the party enjoyed the favors.

I made this card for another fellow PHN who is fighting metastatic breast cancer. She's been fighting it for about 2 years but things aren't going so well. Her faith is so strong and she is prepared for whatever the outcome. We decided to take up a collection to get her and her family some gift certificates for food. Since I have a lot of angels on it, I decided to enter it into the flutterby challenge. This is my first challenge so I really don't know what to do :)

I used gingersnap angels and I paper pieced their dresses (my first time doing this too) and then I airbrushed that background of the card. I used Spica pens to decorate the sun and the clouds. I water colored the cloud that the angel is sitting on. I added bling to each cloud.

Anyway, I hope you all are doing well. I have one more day of work and then another furlough Friday. I need to make 4 birthday cards for the February co-workers so I hope I can get them done this weekend. I also will be getting together with the chaperones I went to Disneyland with so I want to make some post it note holders for the ladies.

take care and God Bless.
