I Made Some Cards!

 While it poured with heavy rain/hail last weekend, I made cards!  Freezing cold (my house is old and is like a freezer in winter) and bucketing down with rain, I decided it was a good time to make cards!  I made the blue one above using a Stampin Up decoration stamp which I cut out after stamping five of them.  The "Merry Christmas" words are also from a Stampin Up stamp set.
 This black & white card is also made using SU stamps (not the words) and the mini scallop punch.  I enjoy making black & white cards.
 These two butterfly cards were inspired by Dawn (http://www.dawnsstampingthoughts.net)  Please check out her wonderful blog, she is truly inspiring!  Thank you Dawn:-)
 The card by the butterflies is actually a burgundy colour but here it looks black!  The butterflies are from Stampin Up.  The bigger ones I stamped then cut out by hand.  The smaller ones are from an SU die. The words are also form SU.
 These two photo's loaded up in the wrong order:-(  The cat face is on the front of the card, the bum is on the inside and is on a wobbly spring, so it wobbles when you open the card!  So cute!  These stamps, words too, are from Art Impressions.  My friend Robyn inspired this card as she sent me one the same & I fell in love with it & had to buy the stamps!  (Thanks Hastings Rubber Stamps NZ)
The pink heart circle is a die.  I embossed the bottom of the card using my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  (Thank you PAT for sending me that!)
Okay, that's me for today thank you for dropping by!  I hope your Monday is going well!
I am battling an ongoing sore throat at the moment due to sinus trouble which never seems to completely clear up.  Need I say it is driving me crazy!  The only relief I get is from keeping up the painkillers.
Okay, catch yo next time!  {{HUGS}} from me to YOU:-)
