New cards

I've been making some new cards in the evening after Ava goes to sleep as I kill time until Grey's Anatomy on Thursday night. The card making keeps my mind off of the "they couldn't possibly kill off Meredith, could they?" debate that is going on in my head.

Here they are:

If you are getting started in stamping or are just looking for some fun stamps to play with, my current favourites are the Paisley background stamp and the Wild About You set from Stampin' Up. The paisley stamp goes with everything and the Wild About You set works for all occasions. Stampin' Up products were used to make these cards. I also use them for a lot of my scrapbooking pages. If you want to learn more, check out my sister's blog. She usually holds classes once a month and teaches us a lot of great techniques.

Jen, your cards are awesome! I love the colour combinations and the "Wild About You" and "I'm Here" stamp sets! I am adding them to my wish list! That elephant is just too cute!
Thanks, Sheri! You'll love both sets - they are great. Lately I'm into the bright colours. You are going to love card making once you get into it. You will be hooked like the rest of us. :)
