A box of cards for my mom . . .

Good Afternoon Evening my friends!

I've finally found a few minutes to jump onto my computer ... check out all my emails and share a little something with you here on my blog.  
Today was the day for my scheduled hair cut/color and pedicure (boy I look forward to this day more and more!!).  Then, since I was in the area of my family, I linked up with my Mom and daughter for lunch.  
While at grandson's birthday party on Saturday my Mom asked me to make a box of cards that she could send to a friend in Texas.  Nothing fancy she said ... just make a variety.  I ask her how many she wanted and she said "Oh, 12 aught to do it!" ... Well, of course since she is an hour & a half drive away from me and I was going to be seeing her for lunch today I just had to get busy and start creating.  

Here's a few of those cards ...
We are always in need of Birthday cards so I included several in this pack.  And, since I didn't have a lot of time, I chose to use design paper from my scrap bin and dies.  Worked PERFECTLY!

Dies used:  Cheery Lynn Designs B211-Happy Birthday, B165 Lace Corner Deco E

 Dies & Punches used are:  Cheery Lynn Designs B226-Happy, B231-Birthday, B117S-Fanciful Flourish Small, Martha Stewart 3-1 Butterfly punch, Heartfelt Creations HCD734 Sun Kissed Fleur

Dies & Punches used are:  Cheery Lynn Designs B226-Happy, B231-Birthday, Joy Craft floral silhouette, Martha Stewart Vine Trim punch

I have SEVERAL more cards to share but will save them for another time.  It's amazing how quickly these cards came together (thank goodness) and she was very happy with them all.

Let me see if there are a few challenges I can enter these into:
Creative Card Crew Challenge #44 - Things with Wings (Card #2)
Loves Rubberstamps Challeng#69 - Have a Sentiment on the Front
Allsorts Challenge #223 - Butterflies (Card #2)

  3. How sweet that your mother requested and that you created a box of all occasion cards for her friend. So much more personal than buying from a mass producer. Creative Bliss...

  5. Wow...you have been busy!! I bet your Mom appreciates these so much. I started some monogram cards for my Mom over 3 years ago...you have put me to shame me to finish them for her (if I can find them...lol)!!! And congrats on your win, too :>)
