Here are a couple of cards that I made for the CARDS blog latest challenge. I am a little intimidated by ribbon... we seem to fight every time I try to make a bow! So... this is my best attempt! I won't tell you how much time (and ribbon) went into getting these bows tied!
The Christmas card was made just because I wanted to use my new SU stamp set!! Plus... I need to knock out another Christmas card. The birthday card was made with a family member in mind! Won't say who because two of the four women who have birthdays coming up... read my blog! I think they still do anyway! :)
I used my In Bloom set again and used several of the same colors from the card I posted yesterday! I jumped on the In Bloom bandwagon late but ... I am glad I did. The more I use it... the more I love it!
Hope you guys are having a great Tuesday! I cleaned my house while Carver was at school so that feels good... it is nice to have a clean house! Of course, Carver didn't take a nap at school so he is napping for a few minutes now! That gives me enough time to post these cards real quick!
I have a question for you!! Yes... you!! Any of you!! I am wanting to take an online photography class. Preferably nothing too expensive or time consuming. Looking for something to do at my own pace! Any good tips or suggestions?
I have so many things that I 'dream' of doing but have so little Kelley time that it is hard to accomplish too much outside of taking care of my family and our home. Anyway... it is a little overwhelming when I think of all the things I want to do... paint the whole house, redecorate, take a photography class, get into digital/hybrid scrapbooking, start scrapbooking, etc... !! I let myself get discouraged because I just don't have the energy most days to get started. Anyway... just needed to vent for a minute. Sorry to get off on that... wasn't planning to! :)
Well... hope you guys have an awesome night! Thanks for stopping by and Thanks in advance for any advice about a photography class!
