A Couple of Cards

Hello, Hello!  I have not fallen off the face of the blog planet, I promise.   Our household is adjusting to having a high school freshman who is busy with varsity soccer six days a week and a hubby who is now commuting to the office (he has worked at home for the last four years).  This transition forces my creativity to take a back seat to life.  It also forces my blog to take a back seat to life.  I'm not complaining though, this is an exciting time for my family and I don't want to miss out! I promise I will be posting, just not as frequently in the next couple of months.

Today I have a couple of birthday cards to share with you.  First up is a pretty card that I made for one of my best girlfriends.  She so appreciates a handmade card.  I so appreciate that she saves them all!

Paper & Butterflies ~ Studio Calico
Tags ~ Scarlet Lime
Sentiment ~ Elle's Studio
Adhesives ~ Xyron & Helmar

My second card is one I made for Lily to give to a friend.  I just love the simplicity of this one and the blues with the kraft paper just make me swoon. The feathers and sentiment are heat embossed.  

Paper ~ Core'dinations
Stamps ~ Unity Stamp Co.
Embossing powder ~ Stampendous
Embossing folder ~ CartUs
Versamark ~ Ranger
Adhesives ~ Xyron & Helmar

I hope you have a wonderful day!

I do love a beautiful handmade card! I use them as special decoration swapping out seasonally (or as I feel like it) so it's important to have choices (thus the keeping them :)...thanks for all the effort you put in the wonderful cards you make me.
