Birthday Cards

To get my mojo going I tried making a few cards from scraps I had lying around my desk. Literally scraps of papers that I hated to throw out but wasn't enough to make into a LO. Love being able to use up all the pretty papers without tossing them!

Then once I started I had a hard time stopping, though I kept to the same theme & design--HA!! I tried changing things up a bit but not by much.

This card I had stamped first & when it came out slanted I did the same with the papers-happy accident!

This stamped crooked too but I had everything all stuck on & stamped last so I'm hoping whoever gets this cards doesn't notice! ;)

Used the Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch & colored it in with stickles....looked better in my mind but I'm not un-happy with it either. KWIM?

I left this card blank but more than likely it'll be birthday since that's what I tend to need most. You can't see it too well but the card was embossed with my favorite Swiss Dots folder.

This card was made in record time & already sent out, to my friend Carla's birthday today. Luckily I mailed it out in time & she got it today! Perfect timing--amazing!!
Once I had these made I couldn't stop! I was on a roll & have more to share soon! They even put me in the mood to make a LO! YAY!! Not that I actually MADE a LO...I'm just in the mood to make one! LOL!! But I have some ideas rolling around that I want to put on paper so it'll happen soon!

Thanks for my gorgeous card Sara!! I love all the cards you made! Who makes that stamp? I really need one, lol.
And I have an idea in my head that I've been wanting to do forever...will need to post that on my blog soon.
