Good afternoon! Even though it was a slow crafting week for me, I managed to get a few cards done. You might notice that I was really enjoying both the 'seeing spots' embossing folder and twine this week. Why change a good thing, right?

This is a standard A2 size card created using the 'Birthday Bash' cartridge. I absolutely love this cart and can definitely see myself using it for so much more than birthdays. The grass and cloud are from 'Create A Critter' and the sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Designer's Choice set. The glitter is Martha Stewart.

This is a fun get well soon card. I used '3 Birds On Parade' for the cuts on this cartridge. I was hoping to get a better picture of the rain drops so you could see the glossy accents that I added to them, but I just couldn't capture it. I really like the added dimension and 'wet' look it created. The card base, standard A2, and layer are both from the 'Christmas Cards' cartridge. Of course I used a Peachy Keen stamp for the sweet little birds face. The sentiment is computer generated. I also did some inking around the edges and added some doodling for the finishing touches.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll see you back here soon and as always I enjoy your comments and/or questions.
