Fancy and Free

I love they way these cards came out.  I made about 6 of them also for my stash, they were very time consuming becuase of so many pieces but I will for sure be making more of them in the future.  I wasn't sure how the Sentiment would come on on the Fabric paper, but It looks pretty good.

Quick and Easy Cards

I needed to add some more cards to my stash and these were so quick and easy to do.  I just used a few products to make them.  They came out pretty good and a few of them are perfect Guy cards. I used on of the Stack sheets that was full of Stamps and cut them out using Decoration sissors to use for my main focal point of the cards, and I still have a lot left over to make more....

Happy Father's Day

I know, it's not a very good photo.  In a hurry to get the card in the mail, I used my phone to take the picture to be quick and get it out.  (It was already late)

Thank you Grad!

I made about 24 of these Graduation Thank You cards for my son.  I wanted to keep them simple due to having to make so many with little time.  I used the Everyday Paper Dolls grad hat and cut @ 8".

Time Flies....

I can't believe how fast time goes by, it's been such a long time since I posted anything.  I have been making cards for different occasion's and for requests but just haven't posted any.  I haven't even taken good photographs of them either just for the sake of time.  This past month my youngest son graduated from high school, I had company for 2 weeks, went on vacation and my oldest son purchased his first house.  All very exciting news, but sure has kept us busy.  I'm still tying to get caught up on my everyday duties and work because of these activities but I plan to post again hopefully soon. 

Did I mention my son purchased the home right next door to us!  Everyone thinks that's the craziest thing.  However we do live on 1.25 acre lots so we do have some distance between our houses.  It's not so bad, I actually enjoy having him so close.

Shark Attack!!

Quick card for my Nephew that I made for his birthday in May, I took the photo with my phone so its not a very good picture.  I was late with his card and wanted to get it out to him.  I do believe my papers were used from all scraps with this card too.  I used the Fun in the Sun Cartridge cut the shark out at 5".  He loved it!!
