Cards, cards, and more cards!

After making only 4 cards in the past 2 months, I went on a card-making spree last night and this afternoon!  I had seen a number of great cards on various blogs and photo-sharing sites, and just got an order of stamps and cardstock and punches, so I did what every sensible card-maker would do - I made cards!  Lots of cards!  I'll probably share a few every other day or so - don't want you to get cross-eyed from trying to take them all in at once!
The first one is probably my favourite!  I love the colours, and the fact that each of the panel strips has a different embossed pattern.   I found out this afternoon that the Just Us Girls blog ( has a challenge to create a project using the "ombre" technique - which is exactly what this card shows!

 I have a few friends and family members celebrating birthdays this week, so this one will be going into the mail in the morning.
The second card uses some of my newest designer paper - it goes with a variety of Stampin' Up colours, including this one (Summer Starfruit) - it makes a really bright card, which is really great for one of those "just because..." occasions.  I also just received my "Mixed Bunch" stamps and punch, so I put them to work as well.

I've had enough fun for the day, so I'm heading off to bed - I'll probably dream up some new card ideas!  I'm hoping to have a quilt project close to completion, and I just might share a sneak peak of it soon!
