Special Card for Ginny

Hey everyone!

I have a million excuses why I haven't been posting anything lately, but I'll spare you. Mostly that I've been working A LOT and I've had lots of orders for cards in the last two weeks all to be done by Father's Day! So I've got 2/30 totally finished and 22 more in the making, at least 19 of which will be done by this evening. But it has been crazy! Sorry, less talk more rock! Time for this weeks Paper Cutz Challenge.

Challenge: Use only the colours pink, black and white.

Colour challenges are never too bad. I just wanted to incorporate this challenge into a card already on my to do list. So, my to do list? Well -2 Father's Day Cards, -2 anniversary cards, -2 birthday cards, -a card for every child my mom teaches (19) and one for the EA in her classroom, Ginny -an engagement card, -a thank you card and the list just keeps growing. SO! I decided to make the card for my mom's EA pink, black and white. My mom loves it and can't wait to give it to Ginny. I like it because it's simple. I like making simple cards :P

Dad Banner Card

Hey everyone!

Procrastinating a little again! :P This week's Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky closes by midnight tonight!

Challenge: Pennants and banners

I went with the banner part of it, making a Father's Day card for my father-in-law (Evelyn, if you see this please don't show Richard!! :P but seriously.) I have 27 cards on my to do list before Father's Day, so this is one I can cross off! This was a super simple card but it's classy and not too girly to give to your dad :P

Baby Banner Card

Hey everyone!

It's been another long week! I only got one card made this week too for the Paper Cutz Challenge.

Challenge: Make a card or layout using a banner with any colour or theme you'd like.

I was excited, I try and use any excuse to use my new E2 :P and I used a couple of the built in cartridges for this project. I also got a new adhesive. A ZIG 2 way glue pen. I LOVE IT! It's like $2 at Walmart and it's perfect for little pieces.
