Saturdays cards

I am trying so hard to get my mojo got up and left last week already and I really need it back soon! So, if anyone has seen it.......please let me have it back!! LOL. It was the ideal weather today to get into the workroom and do something creative. Nice steamy cup of coffee, good music (today it was the Eagles). I had the difficult task of having to make a sympathy card for the family of one of my moms friends who passed away last week. Not the easiest kind of card to make, but I think it came out ok.

An Eastern influence

I was busy preparing to scrap a layout using mainly Eastern papers and embellishments when I decided to use the scraps to make two quick cards along the same lines. I always love the impact created by using the red/black/white combination and the bold eastern symbols.

Baby cards

Thought I'd show you three cards I made for a baby boy, using the clean and simple (CAS) style. This means cards that are made with just a single layer and very few embellishments. I just loved the soft colours on these cards, and the green, blue and yellow work so well together. This style of card is ideal to use when making a large number of the same card eg. birth announcements, christening etc. Also very nice for baby shower invites.

Made use of punched circles of patterned patterned paper for these next two cards. The possibilities are endless. The buttons are a very cute finishing touch.
