Finally got those cards finished- and I don't have a brain tumor!

Good news! My headaches are just regular old migraines. Bad news- they are just regular old migraines. Apparently after having my head examined- it is normal. (They should REALLY double-check that normalcy thing....) That is really good news but now I cannot blame everything I do wrong on my imaginary tumor that I named Henry. Oh well. I had a horrendous night at work last night- I was pretty much up all night talking to truck drivers. (that's my job, ya know...) I didn't get any sleep and then my very good friend called me and I had to pick her up this morning at the car service center. Even though I really wanted another hour or two of sleep- I got up to go get her because she would do the same for me. :)

Now onto some stamping stuff! :)

I finally made my niece's graduation card and decided which of my new creations would be my Mom's birthday card. Whew!

I made two cards with my new "almost favorite" set- Roses In Winter. (Bodacious Bouquet is still my FAV- thank goodness it's not retiring!) That is a really fun set to play with- I can't wait to use it again! I couldn't decide which one to send at first. The one with Cameo Coral I tried the Cracked Glass technique. The Brocade Blue card I made a scalloped circle using my coluzzle and the corner rounder punch. I have finally decided on the blue one for my Mom since blue is her favorite color!! Check them out and feel free to tell me if I made the right decision.

My neice's card was more difficult. I used the Framed Greetings set which really isn't my style but it has come in handy for things like babies, and - GRADUATION. I wanted to put Certainly Celery on black but I also wanted to write inside the card how proud of her I am so I made the Celery a little smaller and be the part that opens and mounted it on a card-sized piece of black CS. I used the Stars and Swirls Jumbo wheel and embossed it with Whisper White Craft Ink and white ep. I also used Dazzling Diamonds on the graduation caps- but that is mainly because I am addicted to ribbon and glitter and I didn't use any ribbon!! :)
If you want more details on the cards check out my Gallery on SCS!! (the BEST website EVER!!)
So I feel more relieved that those are finished- BUT I still have to make Father's day Cards! Where will I find the time????

You have very lovely artwork. I'm glad you started a blog so you'll have a special place to share your artwork with the world. Migraines suck but definitely better than the alternative!
