Some new cards

So I have been making some cards lately...partly because I needed some cards for specific purposes and partly because I can make them quickly. Sometimes it just feels good to get in my craft room and get something completed even if I only have 30 minutes, ya know?  Anyway, this card is a "thank you" card for my sister. My daughter, Kayla, just turned 5, so I needed to send out thank you's. I always make my sister a special one though, 'cause she is the best when it comes to parties at my house!  She comes over at least a day in advance to help clean (which is not my favorite thing to do!) and she helps throughout the party to put food/drinks out and clean up-- she won't leave a dish in the sink! Seriously! She makes entertaining SO much easier for me!

So I made this card with a picture of my sweet little birthday girl! (She tends to display her cards in her room, so I added a little extra cuteness!) The papers are from a doodlebug pack, the ribbon is american craft and the stamp is hampton art.

This second card is just to have for a quick card to have on hand, but I was inspired by the DCWV blog card sketch. I used the Whimsy paper pack for this card.  I just love the shimmer in this paper! I know you can't tell from this picture, but I popped up the "Hi" scroll (which was cut from the Cindy Loo cartridge on the Cricut) for added dimension.

Hope to finish writing out the thank you cards today...I never feel like the party work is done until the TY cards are in the mail....
Have a great day!
