In keeping with my Depeche Mode theme (I think there’s only two more DM-related post and then I’ll go back to blogging about other types of cards), today’s post is about a special card I made for a very special friend.  I have a friend who works for the Walt Disney Company and when I was in Anaheim, she dropped off some surprises to my hotel: a letter with suggested rides and must-see attractions at Disneyland and California Adventures; a sequin Mickey hat (she wanted to have mouse ears stitched with my Twitter user name, but they only do traditional names on hats); maps for the theme parks and a one day pass!!!  Although I went to Disneyland and California Adventures all by myself, I had a good time and was so thankful for the warm welcome she gave me.  The letter of suggested rides and the Facebook messages from friends with their favorite rides helped make it a good day alone at Disneyland.  I am pleased to say that I finally met my friend in person when I flew back to California in October.

Being a fellow fan of Depeche Mode’s lead vocalist Dave Gahan, I had to make my friend a special Dave card and I wanted incorporate Mickey, so here is the card I made for her – just for fun!  I used paper and a brad combo from Close to My Heart and my favorite Modern label Punch from Stampin’ Up!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
