    Default made some new cards

    one of these days I'll do another actual scrapbook layout. lol Here are some cards I made :

    this is for my hubby Wayne...it's quite a big card....It's for November 1st which is his one year anniversary of quitting smoking He doesn't know it but I'm putting up a congratulations banner, balloons, getting him a little present (like a dvd he wants or something) and getting him a cake (cuz he's cake crazy lol)...and I found these sorta foam no smoking things at the dollar store 3 for $1 so I'm going to stick one on the cake and use one on a layout of his anniversary Anyhoo, I'm so proud of him...especially for quitting cold turkey and never going back

    This is for our brother in law...it's actually waynes bil on his sideand I didnt have any stickers or embellishments pertaining to him in the slightest and needed a card fast so i had to go very generic.


    this is for my younger brother (he's turning 21) but I'm not happy with it...I think I just dont like the grey but had NO other card stock left in the house...do you know any way I can spruce it up or is it too late and I should start again?

    this is for one of the little girls who comes to our home daycare

    and this is for her mom who's become a great friend of ours in a very short amount of time. I didnt want to write happy birthday on the front in pen like that but it was my hubby's idea and i didnt want to squelch it.

    Thanks for looking!

    Wow Karen! You've been busy. Something I admire about all your cards is the personalization you put into them! If I had to pick a favorite, it'd probably be the one to Trinity or your hubby, but I really love the last one too. That's sooooo sweet of you to throw a little celebration for your hubby for quiting smoking. You are such a sweet wife. That will mean a whole lot to him. You'll have to let us know how it goes. TFS these!

    I agree with Charys..your cards are each so unique and so personable. I too commend Wayne for a year. It's soooo hard to quit and stay quit...and you are awesome for celebrating with him. Good for you both!

    Karen, he's a guy. Gray is PERFECT.

    I like the card. But then again, I like gray.

    I agree, your cards are always so wonderfully personal.

    Congrats also to your hubby. You're showing him that this is just as important to you as it is to him- that's wonderful.

    The cards are great! Wow, you got a lot done, that is awesome. I love your hubby's congrats card. The colors are bold and perfect. The card for Trinity is great too, I love bright cards!

    great cards, I bet everyone will love them. I think your brother's card is fine in gray, kind of keeps it more masculine anyway.

    and that's awesome that Wayne's been a nonsmoker for a year! I also quit cold turkey (it's been 13.5 years now) and I was a pack a day smoker. It's not easy, so hitting that year mark for him is a big deal. I think it's AWESOME that you're making a big deal of it, what a great way to be supportive!

    Way to go Wayne (and great for you to acknowledge it)!

    I love all of them, but I really love the last one
