Too Busy!

This has been a busy week, so I don't have a lot to share with you, just a couple simple things for some friends going through some difficult times.  I think that is why I started making cards, because I always liked to send an encouraging note to someone when they were down!

DSCF2974 This is for a friend whose best friend just passed away.  It features a shell from a retired SU set, Beautiful Beach, and Everyday Blessings from PTI.  She is a very non-fussy, non-frilly girl, so this is my subdued card for her.

 

 

 

DSCF2977 This is for another friend who needs some surgery!  The image was a RAK from my friend Jen which I colored and then mounted on some BG Lily Kate paper that had been stamped with a flower image from Petal Prints, again retired SU.

 

Finally, I like to make cards for my future hostesses using hostess sets, so here is one I made using "A Little Somethin'":

Still playing with Raspberry Tart, and I always go back to this layout when I want to highlight several different patterns!  It is a quick, easy card to make, too, when you use punches for your squares.  I had to use a Nestability for the circles, but I did use the tool kit punch for my row of "dots" along the left edge!

Thanks for visiting!  Hopefully I can play some challenges this weekend--right now I am gonna take a nap!!!
