I'm still here, haha!

Sorry for the long break, peeps! I have been spending my time finishing up Nursing School, and graduated on May 12th. I hope to take my boards soon in June/July. =) Craftywise I have been playing with Project Life and lovin' every minute of it! I will attempt to take some pictures soon; the glare from the page protectors is killer.

In the meantime, I have two cards to show today. May is the beginning of the "Birthday Season" in our family, so I will definitely be cranking out a few of those soon. Here is the first one, for my fiance, who is turning 26 tomorrow:


I CASE'd Michelle Wooderson's technique using a blank Project Life journaling card for the focal point, as well as the use of a Kelley Purkey PL frame stamp. I love the font that "birthday" is in from Think Big Favorites #12.



This next card (for my Father-in-Law's birthday on the 28th) I will probably use for the May Blog Hop, as it uses the color scheme and some of the patterns:

I loooooove how the stamping turned out! And the use of the numbers and stars really help with a fun, masculine feel. The pull tab is from the Movers and Shakers: Sliders dies, and reveals the phrase "it's a matter of making years count" stamped with a Simply Chartreuse star from Star Prints.

Anywho, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for stoppin' by. =)

Hugs,

Megan

  6. Both your cards are very lovely. I love how you put so many different elements to your cards -- they look like they naturally go together. I have a difficult time with that. Your blog hop card is my favorite out of all the entries.
