Furry Friend Thank yous

Another awesome Card a Day blog challenge.  Hope you'll come join them soon.

A friend who volunteers at several animal shelters in town asked me to make some cards for them to use. I ordered paper and a punch a while back and I'm finally making the cards. These are extra easy to
make. All you need is paper really. I used WE R Memories 6x6 Furry Friends paper stack and misc off white card stock for the base. I cut the blocks from the paper for the front pieces. THe bottom edge is a strip of the patterned paper in the stack.  I cut it with my border punch but you could just add it without being punched. I selected another lighter color pattern from the stack, stamped "Thank You" then cut it out with my nestibilites.  If you don't have a stamp, you can hand write it and cut it out with scissors or a cutter.Thanks for stopping by and looking.  Think CHandra will like the cards ;-)?

Here are all 6 of the cards...

Here's a close up of two of the cards.

Valentine's Cards

Card a Day blog is back to offering challenges. One of the challenges this month is Valentine's cards. Here are two I made last night. These are very simple. I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the background of the card on the left then inked over the raised design. I added an embossed heart from the small set I got with my Cuddlebug. The card on the right is even more simple. I stamped Happy Valentine's Day (misc stamp I have) and cut it out with the Labels 4 Nestibilites set. I used the same paper for the background and popped up the sentiment. Thanks for visiting!
