Hidee Ho and Happy Monday!

It is late afternoon here, I have spend a goodly portion of my day playing with paper and it was WONDERFUL!!  My oldest granddaughter calls me just about every Sunday afternoon and when we spoke yesterday, she said that 4 of her friends were having birthdays soon, so I told her I would whip up some cards for her.  She liked that idea, but said to me "I'll try not to be too disappointed if you can't get them done, Grammy."  She is thinking about times when I was working and couldn't get into the paper mood.  Then I reminded her that I was no longer working, so I should be able to get them for her. I cranked out all four today.  Pretty happy with myself if I do say so........2 cards a day is usually my max!. I'll share two today and two on another day-how's that work for ya?  First the two that I like the best:


And then there is this one:

I tried to make the cards have a more "grown up" feel for her, after all she is 10 years old now (she keeps reminding me).  I didn't put a sentiment on them because I wanted Avigale to feel free to write whatever she wanted. As you can see, I'm kind of  a clean and simple kinda of gal.  Pretty straight-forward and not a lot of fluff.....just me.

The cardbase on each card is Stampin' Up!, layers are from DCWV Big Summer Stack (both patterned paper and cardstock).  Used my Cuttlebug (LOVE that BUG!!) to cut the shapes and added bits of blingage that I had stuffed away, free from all harm!

Hope you enjoy my offerings today!  Wishing you a peaceful evening!!
