Quick Cards

Hi again! I can't believe the weekend's almost here... I've been laid up with a back injury this week, so I haven't been especially productive or creative, but I did get a couple of cards stamped this evening and I had one left from the weekend to share.

This one is going out to my sweet friend BM. She was with me when I hurt my back and drove me to the doctor. She even hung out with me at Subway while my prescription was being filled next door at CVS. So she more than deserves a little hand-crafted goodness!

This next card was done for Amy Rysavy's Friday Sketch #55 (

I'm not totally thrilled with the proportions, but this one's headed out to my mom, who just landed a new job (yay!), so she'll still tell me it's great. (That's what moms are for, right?)

This last one came about since I recently got the Big Shot (and some dies) and wanted to play around a bit.

Well, that's it for me. I hope everybody has a great Friday!
