A few cards...

Happy November!!! I have some catching up to do with my blog, so here it goes!! Below is a menagerie of greeting cards I have made and given to special people in my life over the past few months.
This card was made for my precious nephew on his 1st birthday! I used a Stampin' Up! stamp set, different patterned papers, paper tearing & various inks, some twisted fiber, and lots of bright colors. He did not know any better, but I thought it was super cute and boyish...especially with a googly-eyed elephant!
This one was made for some great friends of ours who got married. I got to use my new scalloped oval punch from SU!, some fun clear stamps, and the silver cardstock, which I just LOVE! The color combination is a little different, but I am trying to steer clear of my habits when it comes to choosing colors for my projects!
Here's another challenging color combination. A good friend and co-worker of mine turned 50 last month, and this image & sentiment called her name!!! This card was pretty simple, with layers, mats in black, and a colored image. I had to tie in some black since she's officially over the 2nd hill now!!
This last card was fun to make. It was for Joe on our 3rd wedding anniversary. I used different stamp-type stamps on 1-inch squares, and cut the "3" from a template. The different blues were intentional since that's his favorite color. He was as impressed as a guy gets about these things!!
~ Happy fall,

It was so nice meeting you in Topeka. You all made me feel like I was a good teacher. Your card turned out beautiful BTW.
Look at all of the cards you have on this post! You have been a busy girl! They are all very nice.
