Cards- Miss You & Sending You Thoughts & Prayers

Hello everyone! Sorry it's been a couple of days since my last post! I have been busy and spending time with the kids. They helped me clean my car today, which was a BIG help, I'm ashamed to say I haven't cleaned the inside in about 1 yr. ( I have gotten out trash and such, but I haven't vacuumed it in that long) and my husband and kids washed the outside, about 10 months ago. Isn't that terrible! It was HOT outside and the car was dirty, so we just decided to go swimming in the pool afterward, that was GREAT!! :) I did get to make some cards last night, and after the swim today, I took pictures of them! I wanted to share a couple of them! I found something out about myself last night, I drive a sewing machine, like I drive my car, TOO FAST!! :) I did a lot of stitching on these cards, and I wasn't very careful, so I need to work on that! I used the some of the paper that I got in that kit a couple weeks ago from ColorBok, I really like them, and I used some of my scraps that I had on my table! I got the inspiration for the first two cards from here and here. So here they are!

Supplies:

Miss You Cards-

Paper- ColorBok patterned paper, white cs

Stamp- PTI- mega mixed messages

Ink- ColorBox Chalk- charcoal

Accessories- Crochet thread, Paper Studio- Bag-O-Buttons, green ribbon- RibbonX, white thread- sewing machine, small square punch

These are all great cards! I am going to have to try that 2nd one! I don't have a sewing machine though and that really adds so much! They are all wonderful!

Love the use of fabric on your cards - a real inspiration and I will have to pull out my trusty sewing machine and have a go!

Super cute! I washed my car this weekend too. My husband and I made a vow to do it once a month. We'll see if that holds up.
