Never Ending Cards

I feel like I'm in this never ending workshop of cards. Just when I think I've gotten all the cards I need for the month; another occasion arises that needs a card. So here are 3 more that I made.

This is Thank You Cards for my DD's birthday party. I'm alittle late getting them out but better late than never.
This one is a card I'm thinking about using for a local cards swap. The theme is Father's Day or Masculine card.

Here is a birthday card for a dear friend's son. This also is Sketch #1 for Okie's Card Challenge 05/27.

More Birthday Cards

May is just killing my free time to play. I'm so busy getting my DD's birthday party together, making birthday cards for 4 other people, and not to mention Mother's Day. I just don't get time to do the fun stuff and just create!! So I killed two birds with one stone. This first birthday card is for a friend of my DD; who will also be 5 years old. I don't normally give the recipe on my blog, but I'm so happy with how the card turned out that I have to share. I used SU! retired Kid Cards Stamp set; SU! Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip CS and retired DSP Berry Bliss; SU! Pretty in Pink ribbon; SU! Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink Ink; Cuttlebug embossing folder; and Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist Coffee Shop and Pink Bubblegum.

This card is for a neighbors daughter. I took Okie's Challenge from the CMB. I just love the SU! DSP Walk in the Park. I have to order more of it before it is retired. It is only available until June 30th. It is listed in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I used SU! retired Wonderful Words and Baroque Motifs Stamp set, white CS, SU! DSP Walk in the Park, and SU! Cameo Coral CS; SU! Baja Breeze Ink; butterfly punch and SU! Scallop Punch; and Paper Studio Gems.
