A card here, a card there… August 12, 2008

I love to make cards – they are so fun and require less time/energy (as compared to a scrapbook page).  Here are some older cards I thought I would share.  All you need are a few scraps and a couple embellishments and voila.

This card was made with 2 different star punches (you could do this with any punch).  The center strip was punched first and the punched stars were inked and laid on top of the middle strip.  I use my computer for most of my journaling.  If I don’t have a particular stamp for a card, I usually type/print it on my computer.  There are numerous fonts to choose from.

This was made with some scraps, a rub-on and a flower from Creative Cafe (Creative Imaginations).  To tie everything together, I inked the edges.  The inked edge on the “thanks” piece of kraft also sets it apart from the kraft card background.

Yep, another kraft card.  This was made with some scraps and a cute “thinking of you” stamp. 

Oh my, a card without any kraft paper?  What?  I love the colors in this card.  The colors are all rich and work well together. 

My friend Karen made some great cards with some Jillibean Soup paper.  Check back tomorrow for some of Karen’s cards!

Thanks for looking!

Today is hubby and my anniversary.  We’ve been married for 8 years.  Wow, time flies.  With 3 little ones, special anniversary celebrations don’t really exist.  Hubby knows the way to my heart – through sweets!  He bought my favorite…french silk pie!  Yum!  The girls and I enjoyed a piece tonight…

Even Brookie got a couple of spoonfuls.  She loved it!  I guess she’s not allergic to chocolate like her Mom was when she was a little girl.

Thanks babe – love you!
