A Little Bit Of This And A Little Bit Of That

Good Morning...Happy Friday! I hope you have had a good week and a great start to a new year! This is going to be a short posting..While I thought things would settle down after the holidays, I continue to be as busy as ever! These first two cards were done before Christmas but I hadn't had a chance to post them. My mom was in the hospital with pneumonia just before Christmas and it has taken it's toll on her. This is the card I sent her. The inside says..."We Hope That You're Recovering...Getting Stronger By The Day". A few Nestibility die cuts, a little bit of inking and embossing...wha la you've got a card that looks like you spent a lot of time on it but it was really pretty quick and super easy...but shhhh...don't tell my mom--- 
My daughter in law's grandmother passed away and she has a huge family so I needed something quick and easy to mass produce...you gotta love the Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis die for this---
My daughter in law's birthday was yesterday and this is the card I made for her. I used Spellbinders Fancy Tag and Martha Stewart Punch All Over the Page Ruffled Heart. Happy birthday Kim, I hope you had a wonderful day---
And finally a card I made for my dear friend Gigi. I had gotten the frog die a while ago from Scrapping Cottage but wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Then I remembered the poem I found on the Internet that I used on my father in laws St Patrick's Day card last year and thought this would be a fun wish for the new year---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping by..as always if you have any questions on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my postings, please feel free to email me. I've got my Thank You cards done for Christmas but haven't had a chance to upload them from the camera. Have a wonderful weekend...hope to see you next week!
