Finally some cards!

Well, I was only able to get 3 pix, before the batteries died....again..............GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I think I'm just going to stop trying until we get our new camera! These 2 were for my friend who's under the weather, and for one of the Cricut Card Fairies missions. The long one was done using a sketch from a book called "Joy of Card Making" (which Don gave me for Mothers day last year). The pattern I used was on page #84, and I laid it on it's side and used ribbon instead of a front focal. I love this book, every time I pick it up I am inspired anew! It's a big, heavy book, but I recommend it to everyone. The other card was for a guy who loved fishing. I used the stickers I got in a set last year. They are from Creative Imaginations, and the papers are made to look like news paper. It dosen't say what the name of the line is. But they have Front Page, Sports Page etc. I got them to use in Don's scrapbook pages, and on masculine cards. Don loves fishing, and loves to read the news papers, so it was a win win for me. So the front of the card shows the 'news' story about the 'big' fish that were caught. Inside I wrote it like a news story and made the fish from my Camp Out Cartridge. Ok, I'm off to blog hop for a bit. I'm sorry it's been so long since I posted. But with out pix, it's just not as much fun! Be well all, and stay warm!

Love those fish! I might have to get that cart just for them! I wish I had your creative energy lately! Trev is sick and I just have been so behind in everything else there is no time for "me" time! Hope all is well with you all and I'll talk to you soon!
