My Nephew's 2nd birthday card

I had such a great Saturday. A bunch of gal pals and I rented a hall, packed up all our scrapping crap and brought some snacks to enjoy a fun day of scrapping, heavy on the yapping. We had a great day. I wasn't as productive as I'd hoped, but I still completed a bunch of cards. I'm glad the only kids present were in utero...let's just say the language leaned toward the my language leaned toward the filthy. A lot of the other women climbed into the gutter with me...and fun was had by all! The first card that I'm posting from that day is my nephew's 2nd birthday card. Had to use Elmo...gotta love Elmo. I know...filthy language and Elmo is creepy, but I love how it turned out. I started out using different paper, but Donna (gal pal...local Scrapbooking store owner extrordinaire) screamed I took her advice and this was the end product.

Sympathy Card

My husband asked me to make some sympathy cards for his office. From time to time they have clients that pass away and the office buys some stock cards that they give out. I guess he thinks mine would be more personal. I decided to keep them simple. I love how they turned out. He asked for 10...I'm planning on making a few of each design I come up with. I'll post the rest when they're complete.
