Sunday Brings Lots of Pictures

What a day! I got a chance to do some cards as I had taken a couple days off from being crafty. These cards were quite the challenge. A friend wanted some Grandpa cards with specifics in mind - so I had to think long and hard of what my Grandpa would like. Pink and glitter were out of the question ;)

Grandpa card #1 - Her Grandpa likes to fish:



My first time using SCAL - I got a bit of glue on the letters - hope Grandpa doesn't mind/see it!




Grandpa card #2 - Her other Grandpa likes to farm:



SCAL again - love that program! AND I actually wrote the "The" on the card. Pretty risky for me considering I always seem to ruin stuff with my handwriting.


Card Ingredients:
Brazzill paper; Recollections cardstock; Little City and Kristen fonts; American Tradional Designs Great Outdoors embellishments



While I was busy, my husband made me something too:



That's right ladies, I am the best "scrap-er" in the world ;)



And while we were busy, so were our cats (Max & Baby):

Busy enjoying the sun and sleeping, that is.

Happy Sunday!! Hope the day is treating you all well!

I was so touched when I saw the Award Derek made for you. He's such a gem, and I'm so happy for you. Both you and Derek make me so proud. The cards you made are fabulous. And Max & Baby are very special. Thanks also for the fun time we spent together this weekend.

The cards look great! I'm so excited! They are perfect!

I can't believe Derek made you an award, that's so sweet it's making me sick :o) He should have used the cricut for it! I mean, really, a little effort would have been nice instead of just printing it out! J/K! Well, congrats anyway!
