Cards from the weekend...

So, I don't know WHY it happens, but the end of the school year always ends up being ridiculously hectic for me!  I feel like there is NO time.  Then I'm happy for the summer break.  And I enjoy it for about 2 weeks.  And then I NEED STRUCTURE.  I crave it.  And I know I'm not going back to my job in the fall because I'm going back to school and I'm worried that won't be enough structure for me.  Oh, well.  Adapt or die, right?! ;)

But I digress...the point was that I did make a bunch of cards to share this weekend and I haven't shared a one of 'em!  So, I'm sharing!  It'll be more than one card per post, sorry.  Otherwise I miss the challenges, ya know?  This will be my CAS post...

Here's CAS take one~


For these fabulous challenges~

(Square Card, Bling, Text)

(Red & Green)

This card uses images and a sentiment from Close to My Heart and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I used the "Rock n' Roll" technique to achieve the look of the leaves.  It took 3 tries to get them ok.  I guess I'm satisfied with them...let's keep going!

CAS take two~


For these fabulous challenges~

This card uses stamps by Close to My Heart again as well as rhinestones by Prima and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I don't know why it was hard for me to come up with stamps to go with these colors, but I think this cute set was the perfect fit!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my cards!  I will be back with more either in a bit or tomorrow...hopefully! ;) HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Gorgeous cards Mynnette, I LOVE how you've done the leaves on the first one. Xx

Both cards have such lovely sentiments and great clean designs! I'm quite fond of the blue and yellow color combo, and you've done a great job with the inking of those leaves. They're both beautiful in their own way1
