making some cards

I've spent some time making cards lately. Mostly for gifts but a few for me! Go me. I had a friend in need of some thank you cards so my stash was completely wiped out and I had to make a few more to have on hand. This one I made to start filling up my stash... which I promptly sold. I'll need to work on them again. It was made from scraps on the desk and my embossing folders.

These next two are part of a set I made for the last Teacher's Luncheon at the school for them to raffle off. There are four of each design which I think is a pretty nifty gift. And again... I have given away all my thank you cards!!

This is a sketch that was used for the following two cards for the Christmas card sketch challenge group I am in. Yup... five more Christmas cards have been made! Woohoo!!

Instead of an image, I chose to create this fun pinwheel/ flower that I found in the Creating Keepsakes January/ February 2012 magazine under their Tips and Tricks. Pretty simple and looks lovely. I cut the circles out with my Spellbinders Petite Scallop Circle Large dies. I also used one of my embossing folders. The center flower is from a Doodlebug Christmas embellie pack I have had FOREVER!! I had four of them so I made this card four times. The fifth card is below.

I used the same papers and sketch, but switched it up a little since I ran out of the darker green to cover the card. I also used smaller circles and a bit of bling.

The sentiment on both is a Studio G dollar stamp.

Now I am off to make some birthday party invites since we waited until the last minute to figure out a party for Kira. She turns 11 on Saturday!! oh my word... I cannot believe she is that old already!
