Elvis..Or is it?





So...what do you think? Which one is the "real" Elvis? The handsome guy on the left is my DAD at 18 years old - this was his Senior picture. I absolutely adore the signature on the front of the picture! I have my MOM's Senior picture too (signature and all.)

So when I saw these new Cornish Heritage Farms on my friend Lori's Blog (click on her name to see her latest Elvis design) I thought immediately of my Dad. He's not a collector or anything, but he does like Elvis' music. I though tit would be fun to make Father's Day & Birthday Cards for him. Turns out an aunt of mine IS a collector, so my Mom asked me to make a birthday card for her - that's it above. Stamps: Elvis (Cornish Heritage Farms), Happy Birthday from Sincere Salutations set & Rough Edges Jumbo Wheel both by Stampin' Up! Colors: Mellow Moss, Basic Gray, Ruby Red, Whisper White & River Rock. Accessories: Crafters Tool Kit (for paper piercing), Ticket Corner Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Slot Punch, Designer Label Punch and Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon. ENJOY!
