my weekend cards (pic heavy)

I went a little card crazy this weekend. lol. They aren't my best ever but I was just eager to get them done and move on to the tonne of cleaning on our list. Wayne said he'll vacuum the whole house if I mop the kitchen floor so score for me! LOL

Sorry the biga are so big..the resizing isn't taking and I don't have time to come try again later

These two are for daycare kids....Ryan is turning 4 and Bella is leaving for school...we already have a "We'll miss you" book from us and all the kids where we did coloring pages of her fave cartoons so I stuck with a title a lil more cheerful here

This one is for Waynes dad in England...Wayne chose the pic (cuz his dad is obsessed with dogs) as well as the quote lol.

This one is for my step dad...I cut it out of another card cuz my step dad fixes "diggers" for a living. lol

This is for one of my close friends...then Wayne said if I had done it in pink it would've been perfect for his sister's upcoming bday so I did another version. lol

For another good friend

For Wayne's niece's fiance...guy cards are hard!

For my best friend in England. She is proper obsessed with the purple/gold combo. LOL! Her bday is next month when we will be out there...hence her's can be 3D...all the one's I have to mail have to stay flat or else they cost an arm and a leg to mail. LOL

And finally this is for my oldest sister:)

thanks girls! And for the handwriting comments ...I can't take much credit for Mom and Grandma have the exact same writing and it just comes from them. lol.
My next lo was actually going to be of the daycare kids practicing tracing printing...for their daycare scrapbook...and to save money i do their practice sheets by hand so maybe their writing will turn out like ours too. lol
