What ! More card making...from me ?

I don't really consider myself much of a card marker.  With the exception of Valentines Day recently, I usually don't take the time to sit down and focus on card making.  However, last week I was down with strep throat and once the meds kicked in, I was bored and feeling a little crafty but not up to my usual marathon scrapping.  So, I tried my hand at making a few more cards...this time for some special friends.
I enjoyed creating these little creations to share.

Hello Friend Card
This card was made with some paper scraps, my new Martha Stewart floral border punch,  some glimmer mist, misc pins, ribbon, thicker letters and an old Lux Designs "friend" rub on. I really loved how this turned out. It was such a cheerful little card to send to a friend that I miss and wanted her to know I was thinking of her.

Have a Tweet Day Friend Card
This is a birthday card I made for a special lady that is so talented. I really wanted to send her something fun for her birthday.  A while back I had bought these adorable Glitz Design chipboard birds and matching patterned paper, but I had been hoarding them for just the right project. {LOL}.  And of course, with all my banner making lately, I am addicted to crepe paper ruffles so I happily added that element to embellish this card. 

My friends who received the cards last week both sent me a note thanking me for the cards.  That really made me SMILE so that may INSPIRE me to try making some more cards to share in the future.

Oh...and for those that were asking...My dad is doing pretty well. After a few set backs he was finally able to start his chemo treatment this week.  His MRI showed that the remaining liver is growing back perfectly and they didn't see any signs that the cancer had grown back.  Thank goodness!  The chemo is for 6 months to help make sure there aren't any cancer cells still lurking around.  We feel very fortunate he is doing well but know the next few months may be hard on him so keep him in your prayers still.
