Busy with cards!

Monday, June 20, 2011

It seems there have been a lot of cards to make lately! I can't remember the last time I purchased a card and can't even imagine doing so. Seems crazy when I have a room overflowing with supplies...and I enjoy doing it. They provide pretty instant gratification...at least when you compare it to how slow I complete a scrapbook page!
This first one was made for my sister-in-law, Lynn. We had dinner at Outback Steakhouse with the fam and then went over to the parents' house for cake and ice cream. Yum! My inspiration came from an add-on sketch over at Sketch Support for the argyle pattern. I have always loved pink and green together and throw in a little brown---perfect!
This next one I made for my niece, Megan, who just graduated from Oregon State University. Go Beavs!!! Anyway, I cannot believe it's been 4 years already! She is actually off to U of O next year for further schooling.
This was probably one of my quickest cards to make. Pre-made embellies really help! The design inspiration came from a card I saw over at Kristina Werner's blog.
These next 3 are for Father's Day...as if that wasn't obvious! Making masculine cards can be a bit of a challenge. So many cards have flowers and cutesy stuff all over them that just don't work for guys. And believe it or not, I don't have a lot of guy papers that aren't too little boyish---KWIM? Anyway, I think these worked out pretty good.

What a great bunch of cards! No wonder you never buy cards anymore. They would never be as pretty as these. I love the argyle card!
Thanks for sharing! :)

Your cards are so cute, you are good at them! I love your blog. I have to learn a few things on how to add those cute little photos on the side. Great job. We are now bloggers!

Lovely creation!
The photo of your creation also reminded me when I used to lived in an apartment in NJ, I had to take photo of my project near the window, and only in the morning where there was natural light.
