I made cards!

Whaaaaat?  I know, it seems like forever.  But suddenly, we had gift cards to go to our nephews (one for his birthday, the other as a Christmas present) and I was like "I need cards!"

The first card, I made for our older nephew's birthday in January.  We'll be seeing them at Thanksgiving, so I thought I'd pass it along to his mom to take home with her, taking the usps out of the equation.  He's into Monsters Inc right now, so I used these freebies from SVG Cutting Files.  The paper is all from my scraps file, believe it or not!  Way to use up those scraps of paper!  And the sentiment is from an old Pink by Design stamp set called Guess Who?  I'll be entering my Monsters, Inc card into the Simon Says Stamp, Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes.

The second card is for our younger nephew, who is too young to appreciate toys for presents (4 months!) and whose parents said that he already had everything he ever needed.  We figured a gift card for Christmas would help them out with anything they might need to buy him.  For his card I pulled out the Cricut and used Create a Critter 2.  Again, all of my paper was from the scraps file.  I used a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Puppy Love stamp set.

Life is good with Sophie

I'm still here!  I've been spending a lot of my crafty time lately doing pocket page scrapbooking.  Unfortunately, due to my career, it's important for me to keep a lot of my private life private, so I can't really share those pages here.  Instead, here's a cute picture of Sophie and a scrapbook page I made using some Simple Stories cards, a flair and paw from (I think) Queen and Co, a sticker from...somewhere...and a button from BasicGrey.

I like the simplicity of this page both in the design and the colors.  It wasn't really a page about a story I wanted to tell, just a picture I liked and wanted to capture.
