Misc cards from the last few days.

Still really struggling with getting myself in gear and getting into the craft room and getting some things done. I tend to want to plan out the entire project and then go to work. When the reality is that I spend way to much time thinking and not enough time doing. I do not enjoy the thinking part so I need to do a little less of it! When I actually do go and get started I rarely end up with a finished product that is anything like I thought it would be...... thus all that thinking was a waste. What a vicious circle I put myself in.
This first card is for my daughters boyfriend. He is young and a techie so really struggled with what to do.

I really liked the affect of the holographic papers. These were pieces that my hubby rescued out of the trash pile at work. I am so glad he did because it really made for a fun card.

This is a get well card for a friend in my Sunday school class who is having surgery this week. This is a free digi stamp from Birds cards I discovered this blog recently when I decided that I really like working with digi stamps and wanted to get a few free ones to play around with as I am trying to learn to color a bit better. The paper is a bit ragged not sure what is going on with my paper cutter have changed the blade but still ragging the edges I am beginning to think it is yuck paper and high humidity that is the problem. Next payday I am investing in some better paper!

This is one of the four graduation cards I got done. These are the ones that have really left me in a quandary and kept me out of the room. THEY ARE DONE...This is not even close to what I thought I would do but going with it anyway! So hoping tonight I will get myself back on track??
I used a file from the MTC gallery for this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
hugs, Brenda
