Final Fun Cards

 Below are the additional cards we made during my extended birthday week. There are three I can't share as I am in a swap and we haven't had the swap yet. 

  The Hello blue card - was my technique which I did before I read the instructions so we did another one after watching a short u-tube and I have already mailed it out in the morning mail.  The technique is called fractured card or faux shutter - fun and easy peasy to make.  I am sure I will make more and I will be putting them on my blog.  

Have a great week - I'm off to finish my chemo letters.

Fun cards

 What a fun birthday "week" I had this year.  One of the best.  Started off with Cup and a Card here in town - got so many beautiful birthday cards.  Dinner at Texas Roadhouse.  Wednesday was our 32nd anniversary - late lunch at Mary Janes in Perryville MO.  Great food.  Thursday off to St. Louis to stay all night with a dear friend and fellow crafter - here below are two of the cards we made at her house.  Friday Cup and a Kraft at a Paneras in St. Peters with more friends, more birthday cards and seeing friends that I had not seen for a while.  Whew - quite a week.  

The Hello card was made using a Simon Says die (thank you Donna for a great gift), I really like it.  The Nature card Donna already had things laid out for me to make this box card - Pink and Main Die - decorated with pine trees and deer.  This will be perfect for my chemo man that lives in CO.  

I will be sharing more cards that we made plus the cards we made at Panera's this past week.

Back to School

 Yes, I have been MIA - no real reason except I haven't had much mojo and had a lot going on here for the past few weeks.  Our kids from Portugal came and stayed for a week - what a nice visit - we really miss them.  My son came for a week.  Then we have moved my son, and well the rest of the time it simply gets away from me.  I don't think I manage my time wisely.  LOL

I made a card for my chemo boy and his siblings - a Back to School card and I made a box full of back to school supplies including snacks.  He has 3 siblings so the box was packed full.  Headed to the post office this morning to mail - can't imagine how much the postage will be.  But it was fun getting everything together.  

Fun card to make - I used a really OLD set from TAC - "Back to School", Lawn Fawn, stickers, and some cute Echo Park Back to School paper that was 1/2 price at my favorite brick and mortar Stamp Pad.
