A Couple of Cards

This has been the longest week EVER! I don't know why... but I do feel like it will never end. Things are always hectic around CHA time and I guess this year it is even more so with me as I'm now a 'working mom'. But, I've been creating away and really enjoying that! I know everyone feels this way, but I just wish I had more time in the day...

However, I know that my 'problems' are nothing but small annoyances. I'm so sad to be watching everything going on in Haiti. Talk about feeling helpless... My prayers are going out for all those who are suffering and for their families who must be horrified as they watch from so far away. I just found out last night that you can donate to the relief effort in a really easy way. You can text "HAITI" to 90999 and donate $10 to the American Red Cross relief for Haiti. The charge will show up on your next cell phone bill. All major carriers participate in this program. Imagine what they could do if everyone just sent ten dollars...

In scrapping news, I wanted to share a couple of cards today. I made this first one for Emma's and I love how it turned out. I think it may be my new favorite! I used lots of Melissa Frances: the paepr, the trim, the resin, the tag is My Mind's Eye and the birds are Making Memories. And I love that Hambly transparency!






This next one uses a Papertrey set that I just adore - Heartprints. I started out with a Vintage Cream cardstock base. Then I added a Hibiscus Burstborder along with a Melonberry ribbon. I stamped the hearts using Spring Moss, Melonberry and Hibiscus Burst and used a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages.




That's it for today. I will be back soon with some projects using the awesome new Zva products. Stay tuned. ;)

What perfectly fantabulous cards! I, too, am so saddened about the situation in Haiti. The ladies in my church are making hygiene kits to send. It is so nice to be able to something, even if it is just a little.

Love that Heart Prints card, Anabelle. It's one of my favorite sets, too. (In fact, I just used it on a card I plan to post tomorrow -- after I can get a pic of it in the daylight.) Thanks for giving me more inspiration!
