Cards, Cards, Cards

It's been a fun and busy week. Ryan 'graduated' from elementary school yesterday. It's such a bittersweet time.  we are excited that he's going to a great middle school next year, it's so hard to say goodbye to the friends we've made at his elementary school. I lost it when I went into the office to drop something off this morning. 

I thought I'd share some cards that I've made recently. I'm finding that I've been using chipboard pieces a lot lately. I just love the patterns and textures they add. These were all done for the Emma's Paperie blog.

I did this one for the color challenge. I love color challenges because they make me grab for a variety of materials I might not normally put together. As you can see I did some hand cutting, and lots of layering.

This next card is one that I made my mom for Mother's Day. It uses a lot of Crate's Storyboard line. I never get tired of it. I also never get tired of using cream cardstock and doilies!

 Mint, gold, pink and cream together just make me sigh....

This last one was done for an Emma's sketch challenge. There's that pink and gold again! And the doilies and cream, too. Are you seeing a pattern here? I can't help it, I just love it!

So, that's about it. I hope you got some inspiration today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
