And now.... for a real post!

So I was very proud of myself for making a blog to post my craft projects on, but I can already tell it is going to be a struggle. I can never seem to have myself, a computer, pictures of my projects and time together all at the same time- I'll get better though! Anyway, I finally have some pictures of the cards I've been making. Somehow I have managed to send out the best one without taking a picture- but these are some of my first attempts.

The top picture is a card I made for my friend's birthday. I think the cut is from Cuttin Up. The picture doesn't really show the details, I used vellum for the martini glass & glittered on the pink paper (I would say stickled, but I used the knock-off brand... or "knock-down" as my mom would say :o)

This first one was an anniversary card for my parents. I used Accent Essentials and the paper is DCWV Old World.

I made this card using Paper Pups- I love the little "Yappy Easter" bunny :) The flower on the inside is a crystal I got from the $ bin at Joann's & the stem is some MM green wire I've had forever. I thought it added a nice little touch.
For this Easter card I used AE and Doodlecharms- for the basket. It wasn't quite my vision but I think it turned out ok... maybe a little funky, but ok!

I'm working on my picture taking... I think I've gotten better but I can't post my new ones yet until I send them out! I hope to work on some layouts this weekend. My sister gave me an album for my puppy and I got some great pictures at the beach that I want to scrap!
