A Few Card Challenges

Wow, what a week it has been!!
First of all, I must say last weekend was amazing!! For those of you who didn't know...I taught a mini album class over in Marysville, WA last weekend. We had a fun group of ladies and I must say...I had a BLAST!!
After the class my Auntie took my Mom and I to a couple scrapbooking stores around the area!! It was...WOW!!!! By the time we got to the last store I was completely overloaded with scrapbooking goodness!! The inspiration from all the things I saw was so overwhelming (in a good way of course!!)...WOW!! I bought so many FABULOUS things!! Lots of new paper (and yes Ginger...I still don't remember buying those two pieces lol), a couple mini albums, and a plethora of embellies!!! I seriously can't wait to go shopping over there again!!!

So...I've just "now" been able to sit down and create something!! This past week and weekend has been really busy!!

The first card I made is for my Dad! I used the sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You! I know this paper isn't new, but I absolutely LOVE it and couldn't pass up buying more!!




And this card I used the sketch over at ICSketches!! It's for my sister-in-law...her birthday is in a couple days!! Hopefully she's not peeking right now (*wink wink*)!!




Thanks for looking!!!
