A few new cards

Here are a few new cards:

The green paisley background card uses our old designer paper, May Arts Ribbon, and the tag alphabet set that was in one of the mini catalogs from either a spring or summer issue a couple of years ago.


One of thecards is supposed to be able to be viewed in two ways....can you tell which one? I sure hope you can tell! LOL. The stamps are from SU. Flowers were embossed in black then colored with chalks - lots of people have done that - I thought it was really pretty when I saw other cards, but it just didn't do much for me when I put my own card together...

The cow card (It's a birthday card and inside says, "You're aging very well!") However the challenge for this card is that it cannot outright say Happy Birthday! Stamp is SU, the background oval is A-Muse, felt flowers & brown grossgrain ribbon from American Crafts.

Clown card: I just won the clown set in an Ebay auction and wanted to make the chocolate chip, bashful blue and certainly celery card - the second challenge for Jen's blog. Flowers are cute little felt dealies from American Crafts. I got all three sizes!! :) I know I shouldn't have but I was justifying it because they were meant for another project. So I killed two birds with one stone! YAY! The background paper is actually a large sheet that has glitter centers on the flowers. I love the colors and it just happened to have the same colors as Jen's challenge! The background paper is from K & Co. one of the Amy Butler patterned paper pads.







I'm going to watch Grey's tonight, so that's all I've got! I hope to craft again this weekend and get packages off to people (like my blog candy winner who did email me her address!). I hate the post office - it's such a stinkin hassle around here to go and drop packages. Actually it's the parking (or lack of) that is the pain in the butt.... Good night, ladies!

I love your cards! I think the cow card is my fave, and I believe it's because felt is so warm and touchable, and the cow has personality. Happy crafting! PattieWack
