A few cards !

Hey Everyone,
Its been a busy few weeks around here!
Last weekend my sister and her family flew in from interstate, to help celebrate my parents 80th Birthdays. It was kind of a family reunion too.....It had been 2 1/2 years since I'd seen my sister.  So I went nuts cleaning everything, lots of baking too! We had a great weekend.......I think its taken me all of this week to recover!

Anyway.......onto my projects.
For my first card I played along with "Paper Sweeties" October challenge. 


Live Love a stamp from Paper Sweeties. I cut the Maple leaf from cricut Artbooking cartridge, embossing it with cross stitched hearts. Doilies and more doilies, lace and a sprinkle of sequins.

This is the card I made for my Mum. The overlay was cut using cricut Artfully sent cartridge, the pretty papers are Kaiser.

I sure find it hard to make masculine cards.......this is what I came up with for my dad. As you can see I took inspiration from the background paper and cut a Balloon from cricut Artfully Sent cartridge. It is glitter embossed......yep, I had to add some sequins too!
Otherwise I think its pretty plain :)

Thanks for stopping by, Have a great weekend!

Happy Creating
