A Smattering of Cards....

Just a few quick cards today. Hopefully the weather will force me to stay home tomorrow and I can play in my stamp room!

This one uses the color challenge from NMBS, and the sketch from Mojo Monday #71 again, but on a smaller scale:


This looks much better IRL! The shimmery white paper just doesn't "shimmer" in the photo! I also needed a VERY quick sympathy card for a customer who is dealing with lots of elderly family issues!


You just cannot get much easier than this! I used old and new sets on this---Little Shapes for the old, and my new PTI Quilter's Sampler Sentiments for the new, along with Pocket Silhouettes. Not sure of the color combo here, but with those little flecks in the paper, I thought I could get away with the Close to Cocoa. And finally, I thought I would share some cards I got in the mail today from customers and friends:


This is a sweet card from Beth. She always does beautiful work, and look, she used Little Shapes, too! Cute sentiment and her little hearts are all punched and attached with a cute little heart brad!

DSCF3019 This beauty is from Debbie--she has been hiding her talent from me! I think this is the first card I have ever received from her and how sweet this is! She has lots of details and the nice spring colors really brought a smile to my face! Thanks to both of you!
