I was busy today!

I had a birthday dinner to go to tonight, with two birthday moms. So I had to make cards. It took be a while to get going, as I needed to decide what I was doing. But here's what I came up with - the papers worked so well for me!

I made two of these:

And two of these:

And one of these: (baby is cut from the same paper that's on the bottom of the card - the onesie is a metal embellishment)

And while I'm posting, here's the page I did yesterday:

I actually borrowed that idea from cards posted here (I'm so bad, I forget whose cards they were. maybe Bronwyn's?)

OOOH those are so pretty!
As soon as the kids get older and I actually have the TIME, I want to start making cards too! Right now I am at a one hobby limit ROTFL & it is scrapping! At one time I was making hair bows, tutus, sewing, costume making, scrapping, & making personal gifts, sometimes had all projects going at once. It was kinda overwhelming so I cut down LOL Will probably get into the hairbows again now that Arwen's hair is growing back though LOL

nope, haven't gotten into stampin' up (but I do love their stuff). I did the Celebrate stamp by coloring each part with a brush pen, then blowing on it with my mouth (to re-moisten) and stamping fast
