Various Cards

Well it's been a while since I've posted but I really needed the break. Since I don't have anywhere to post about my blog, except Twitter, I don't have any blog followers that I am aware of so it probably doesn't matter! That said, I needed to understand why I blog and make sure it was something I really wanted to do. I've decided that it is something I enjoy but since I've gotten away from papercrafts and more into fiber arts my posts may be a bit more sporatic. I'm okay with that as I only want to post those items that I feel are really worth it. I don't want to post for the sake of posting once a week, which is what I promised myself I would do.

So today's post is a miscellaneous post with a couple of Birthday cards and a couple of Christmas cards. You can click on any of the photo's for a larger view, but some of the larger views appear out of focus. I guess my camera skills are lacking.

First up is a cute card made by my good friend Cindy. She loves Iris Folding and while I can appreciate the work that goes into it, it's not something I have enjoyed doing. Cindy is also really creative and adds some nice touches to her cards.

The ghost is made from a white shimmer paper which I absolutely adhore!! Unfortunately Cindy couldn't remember where she found it, but that's probably best since I would have purchased it and probably never used it! LOL She added some nice beads to spell out 'Happy Boo-thday' ... how cute and creative!

Here is another Birthday card made by a co-worker, Denice. I'm not sure exactly what products she used but my best guess would be Stampin' Up and she is an avid follower of their products. I love the punch and the button! Too cute!

Next up is a Christmas card from Cindy. Again she used the Iris Folding technique mixing up both pattern paper and solid paper. She really does an amazing job! Thank you Cindy for sharing your talent, I feel really blessed to have you as my friend!

Finally here is a Christmas card from Denice. I love the snowflakes and while you can't really tell from the photo, they sparkle beautifully in person.

While I was taking photo's of these cards one of our cats (Lady) decided to investigate the Lightbox. While she is not supposed to be on the table I decided instead of scolding her, I would take advantage of it and snap some photo's! They're kind of hard to make out since I had the black back-drop up and she is mostly black, but I think you can get the idea.
Here she is getting into the box and looking around.

Here she has pulled down the backdrop and is looking at it over her shoulder! She's such a riot!

I had taken several pictures at this point and I think she was about done with me! LOL

The look say's it all ... would you PLEASE stop mom? LOL

I'm so done with you! She really is adorable and I must have taken a dozen photos so I can totally understand her attitude. :)

Well, thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I will be back soon with more goodies to show you.
Enjoy the week and stay warm. I understand we are in for another whopper of a storm in New England this week. Wonderful :(
