Now don't fall off your chairs....

But guess what I've been doing?
 
Creating some cards!!! 

I've been saying, for I don't know how long, that cards just aren't my thing....and I'd say that because I always kind of struggled with them.  Not sure why.

Now these are no masterpieces....but I'm pretty happy that I at least had a go, and I think they came out ok, and perhaps they will one day put a smile on their recipients faces :)

Using the leftovers from my July DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne - Websters Pages "Palm Beach", here are the 4 cards I made....



I love the flowery flourish from the Turtle Cove paper on this one





And this one was fun cutting out the cute umbrella's from the Flamingo Fun & Palm Beach Girl papers.





The fabric ticket & a piece from the Perfect Accents pack, along with some Prima flowers for the cluster on this one...plus the travel ticket beckoned for the card to be travel themed :)

And lastly.....



I've used a piece of 2crafty chipboard - Flowers Whispy.....and a MFT Upsy Daisy die cut flower using Sunset paper, plus a cute Lil' Red Rocket fabric birdie button ....with some Oriental Poppy GM sprayed on the background.

So there you have it....my attempt at some card making :)


And while I've still got your attention, I thought I'd drop a little reminder about this months sketch at HBS.....

July 2012 Sketch Competition


There's still just over a week to get your layouts uploaded to the July sketch folder in the HBS Gallery. 

Looking forward to seeing your creations!

Thanks so much for dropping by :)  xx

I think you've done a GREAT job with your cards. I was the same way as you a few months back- wasn't really interested in cards. But I forced myself to do it (knowing that if I wanted to make some of these design teams that I'd probably need to do them anyway!) and now I really enjoy doing them. They're kind-of like a mini layout...with no photo.
Keep at it, you're doing quite well!
