2 new cards

So again, I have been making cards, and not LOs. Here are the two newest ones I have made. They aren't the greatest, but they are slowly getting better.

This one was for my sister's b-day. I started it out and hated it, but I worked with it some and I liked the way it turned out. I used George for the stars, Paper Pups for the dog & Happy Birthday , and Cutting Up for the letters.

Another thing I love doing is decorating the envelopes!

This one is for my mom for Mother's Day. I wasn't sure if I liked this one or not. I definitely worked hard on it. I used George for the flowers, Christmas Cheer for the bucket (which is actually a bag Wink ), Mini Monograms for the letters, and Paper Pups for the butterfly.

I love the way the envelope turned out!

Love everything especially the colors in the one you did for your sister. I also love the envelopes, that really adds a great touch. I am soooo envious of you girls and your cards. The people you give them to must be very empressed. Maybe someday I will try and tackle one.

I was very intimidated by cards for a while. I finally decided to try making them and I fell in love. I guess it's b/c it's something you can show off! Lol You need to dive in and make some! I really enjoy it. I also like it b/c I can use stuff that isn't "me" if you know what I mean. For example- the paper I used in my "mom" card, I wouldn't usually use for a LO of Ruthie. I love the paper, it's just not something that goes with any of her photos. I guess that's another reason I really like it!

tfs... these look great!

i totally agree w u on the fact that you can use paper that u like but doesn't seem to be something you would use for your child/children's scrapbook or any other scrapbook you are doing. I've used a lot of paper that I have gotten as gifts that way.

keep up the good work.

Wow! I LOVE those!!!!

I did the same thing for the swap cards--used paper I liked but would never use in a layout for P. I also like the small format because it forces me to focus!
