Congratulations, Wedding AND Sympathy Cards

Hi everyone, I'm back!!!  Not that I haven't been crafting at all, just have not been blogging.  I love to create but I'm not that good at time management and to blog you have to make time...LOL.  But, like I said, I have been creating and have had such a wonderful time over at Amazing Crafting Products.  I create twice a month over there and I am so in love with all their products.  It has been a real treat to work with the wonderful designers and our leader Susan Brown.  It's unbelievable what you can make with these products. If you get a chance, head over there and check out all the fun things we've been doing.  We have a contest going on over there as well and it ends in 4 days, so go and enter "For the Love of..."

I have, however, decided I need to get going on some other things also.  For instance, CARDS!!!  I am making it my personal goal to make at least a few cards per week.  My second goal is to use up my STASH!!!  I have so much stuff and hubby is threatening to clean my craft room for me...NOT!!!  I would like to get some scrapbooking done also, but I need to go through my pictures and sort and order and, well you know...that time management thing again.  Alot has happened since I was last here blogging and little by little I will let you know what I have been doing and what's been happening in my world.

Today I want to just show you a few cards I made last night.  I literally took 3 pieces of paper and some embellishments and said, this is what I am going to use and that's that.  I love creating like planning, no searching, just go with it.  Of course not everything is going to be to everyone's liking, but as long as I am happy with it I am okay with that.

I made 6 cards with 3 pieces of patterned paper and here they are:

I made 3 Congrats, could be just a generic Congrats or maybe an informal Wedding one.

1 Sympathy...I never have any of these because they are so hard for me to make, but I really like this one.  I even used a Fleur de Lei that I made with my Amazing Crafting Products.  Another reason I love being on that design team is that the thing I made using those products can be used for TONS of things.  Because they are so lightweight you can use them as embellishments, like on this card for instance.  Jewelry, knick knacks, home decor, altered art...the possibilities are ENDLESS!!!

and 2 Wedding cards.  In fact I am entering them both over at .  They are simple but pretty.

I hope you've enjoyed some of my cards today and I do plan on being here more often.  If you have any questions about any of my cards, please leave a comment and I will get to them as soon as I can.

As always, have a great day and God Bless!
