Just "friends" card

I cut out a verse in vinyl then attempted to stick it to a tile.  Did not work!!  So I have something heavy sitting on it and will come back to it later.  While I'm waiting, I decided to make a card! :)

Happy Canada Day tomorrow to all my Canadian friends!!!  Someday, I hope to be in Ottawa for July 1!!! **scroll down to see a pic I found on FB! :)  (FYI, I am Canadian, DH is American, and kids are both!!)

Just a simple "friends" card for a challenge... Freshly Made Sketches #41.

Birthday hugs

BBTB2 - birthday and pearls
Celebrate the Occasion #68 - happy birthday
           *they are having a DT call, if you're interested

Bunny Wabbit "Get Well" card

I have a few digi stamps that I printed awhile ago and have not used.  This little guy was hiding out in that pile.   I thought he looked a little sad so thought he'd be great for a get well card.   Almost everything I make has a more girly look to it, so I tried to keep this one neutral/masculine.

Merry Monday Christmas card

On several blogs recently, the crafter mentioned they let the design paper do the work.  Sounded like a good idea to me, so I tried it for this Christmas card.

Sympathy or encouragement card

This card could be a sympathy card or just an encouragement when someone is going through a hard time.  I almost hesitate to make 'extra' sympathy cards because every time I do, I need them soon.  But I was going through  my box this afternoon and I do need some of these, so I made this one.

Tropical Christmas card

This is way out of my 'normal' for both crafting and  Christmas!!  I know that Christmas is really about the birth of Christ, but I also associate snow, snowflakes, snowmen, cold weather, red and green, candy canes, hot chocolate, snow-covered trees, and "Brrr!!" with the Christmas season.  I'm kinda your more "traditional Christmas" kinda gal.  But I guess they do have Christmas in places that don't have snow.  I personally cannot imagine that, but I have read National Geographic and they say it happens!  :) 

All that rambling for this one little card.

I'm back with a grad card!

Hello, crafty friends!!  I feel like it's been sooooo long since I've posted or visited anyone, but I'm home and hopefully will get back in the groove! 

We had a wonderful vacation!!!  Medieval Times, the Smithsonian, Colonial Williamsburg, and Busch Gardens!!   We had a great time together walking, walking, and more walking, plus lots of fun and some much needed rest!   [We did come home to a mess as 2 of our cats got themselves shut into my DD's bedroom!  NOT pleasant!!!]

We've been very busy since getting home, but I finally got into my craft room this afternoon for a little while.  :) 

Tuesday Morning Sketches #150 - sketch + twist -- black, kraft, + one color
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #143 - show action, just image, or action card (I used an Action Wobble)
Doodle Pantry DPDC24 - use DP image (not just sentiment)

The cap is on the Action Wobble
