A Card Here, A Card There. Everywhere CARDS.

I've been rather scattered lately with posting what I've been up to. In all honesty I haven't quite had my MoJo lately. Talk about irritating. Work is starting to pick up and after working billions of hours for the two snow storms that came through, I have just been darn worn out. By the time I sit to craft I'm just not even sure where to start. I have been getting things done though, but that's where it stops- I don't post them on here and so forth, but fear not I have lots of fun things coming this spring!

Sharing a few cards I created last weekend. They are super simple and not too time consuming. Sorta just went through the motions on them- nothing too fancy.  Check back tomorrow for WOYWW! Then on Thursday I'll post a little tutorial on how I got the pretty wood grain paper I used on a few of these cards! Ubber simple and fun with a big impact!

(sorry in advance on these pictures, but in this case something was better than nothing.)

  1. Love the cards...the embossing (both heat and dry). How did you get the squares so lined up on the card with the scraps? I try my best, but haven't found a way to line things up like that...and the perfectionist in me is bothered by imperfection. Thanks so much for sharing! You have inspired me to tackle some cards I need to make!

    1. Karen, thanks you! Their very imperfect I assure you!! That's just looking at them and hoping their close enough. I so start with the 4 corners and then work my way in. I did set them out first to make sure they could all fit and then found where the 4 corners were and winged it from there. I feel you though I guarantee i couldn't do this again.. hence why the next card all the squares are tilted!! hee hee


Feedback is always appreciated! Let me hear what you have to say!
