Cards for all occasions...

Happy Tuesday, friends! I thought I'd post some cards that I've made recently. There has been a lot going on here lately, with friends finding out the sex of their baby, dogs crossing over to the other side and family totally spoiling my girls. :) Here are the cards I made for those occasions.

The first card I made for my aunt, who came in town for my daughter's 5th birthday and spoiled the heck out of her (not necessarily a bad thing). :)

I used Authentique's Free Bird Series in Delight because the colors are vibrant and pretty. I also used a little twine to add a little more dimension to the card. I thought this would be the perfect card to say thank you to my auntie, who has managed to have a presence in my girls' lives even though she lives 2,000 miles away. I love her for that.

This next card I made for my brother, who had to put his German Shepard down this morning.

His dog, Divitt, is the only thing he's been loyal to for the past 7 years. Unfortunately, Divitt developed cancer in his leg and the tumor has been growing rapidly for the past few months. We had to put our dog down - who just happened to be my brother's as well, but we gained custody of him when we got married - a few years ago, so I know the pain of losing a pet.

This last card is for my bestie and her husband and has a double meaning. They recently found out the sex of their baby and the husband just got his first job after law school (after looking for a job forEVER).

They found out they're having a boy so I used predominantly masculine colors, but also used papers with mixed colors to liven it up a bit. I'm excited for my friend and her hubby as they venture into this new world of babies and new jobs.

Don't forget about my giveaway!! Until next time...
