A Card Here, A Card There

Hi Everyone!

I know I haven't posted any cards for a few days so I thought I'd stop by and show a few that are in my files.  I am working on a project that I am dying to share with you, but I need a little more time to finish it.  Between teacher trainings and parent/child programs life is crazy busy right now.  Marie officially starts grad school this Monday so when either of us aren't working I am trying to spend some time with her.  

Here's a  pretty thank you card that I recently created.  Turn it sideways and you'll recognize the sketch that I use quite often.  3 of something going across or in this case down the card.  The papers I used are from K&Company's Sweet Nectar collection.  Thanks, Toni!  You gave me that paper. 

I picked up several "Celebrate" paper pads from Me  & My Big Ideas at HomeGoods a few weeks ago.  It's a pretty cool collection that comes with 6 different die cut pages that I used for embellishments.  I am not especially wild about some of the papers in the collection that have words and letters on them that are either upside down or backwards, but I love most of the other papers and I really LOVE the die cut pages.  I decided that the papers with the upside down and backwards words are perfect for some of my early childhood teacher friends who see words written that way all of the time.  My friend Patty and I agreed that sometimes we saw numbers or letters written backwards so many times that we had to look at the alphabet hanging over the chalkboard to see which was the correct way for them to be written. 

Here are a few of the cards I created:

I put pop dots behind the embellishments to add dimension to the cards. 

I have a parent/child program later today, but for now I am going to work on my project. 

Have a great day!
