chautona-card60Oh, my this was a fun card. I LOVED making it. It’s simple, sure, but it’s so ME. The colors, the typewriter–everything.

WOOT!

SC292- Not Surprised!

chautona-Sc292This one I used scraps for. It’s boring, okay? I know it. I just couldn’t get into the sketch (after being so excited about it last week).

Still, it’s good for guys. And, I just realized that I forgot to put an insert in it so you can actually write on the dumb thing. Oops. Sorry, Morgann.

SC259- L is for Lucky at Cods

Hee hee. I’m giggling. I have a giant fish that I purchased for a main image on this card, but it really is better suited for a 5×7 card, and I wanted to use the edging frames and, and, and… So, I went with the little fish that I almost didn’t toss in my cart when I was workin’ on these.

I wanted to use a real fish hook, but with my luck, I’d end up hurting someone. So… I just used wire from wired ribbon and made a loop. Coward that I am.

I think this card is for my daughter’s sister-in-law. Happy Anniversary, Miriam!

G is for Graduation

Yeah… original ain’t it? What can I say. Yes, I know G was DAYS ago. Getting done is the important part, right? So, here we go! G!

I loved this saying. It screamed, “Morgann’s Graduation Card” to me when I saw it. So I bought it. And next year when she graduates, she’s gettin’ a card with it.

I’d planned on a little mortar board with a real tassel on it, but y’know what? It looked dumb. So, I went for what I hope counts as sort of CAS. 🙂

Stamps: River City Rubberworks- sentiment
Paper: Bazzil green, SU Chocolate chip, PTI Cream, and cool double sided textured owl and gingham papers that I got from an Ippity Chick… how’s that for informative? Oh, and Bazzil blue
Ink: Unity brown umberishness
Accessories: Hey, I didn’t use any. That IS CAS right?
Techniques: I think it’s called stamping…
Difficulty (1-Easy 5-Advanced): 1-easy as A.B.C… 1.2.3…. hmmm where’s my diploma?

Obviously I had to have this stamp.  I was busy yesterday, but I wanted to do one card, so I did this one.  Super easy and simple.  I like it.  Looking forward to do something a little more exciting, but still..  I can’t decide if I should put it in the card shop or send it to my mom.  snort.

See… the sketch was pretty simple to begin with, so it’s not ALL my fault…
