Thursday cards

Happy Thursday blog friends.  I've got a bunch of "must do" cards on my agenda, so I've been busy procrastinating with other non-needed cards.  The first card I was hoping would work for an 18th birthday card, what do you guys think?  Not sure...  


And this is what I started with for the 18th birthday girl card and then couldn't get the sentiments and the WMS Pint Size Heroine to work, so I'm using a loose take on this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge and going to use this card for the Card Drive for Addison (I even got Mr. Ben to make a card too, see below).




Mr. Ben's card for Addison.  He even went and found some stickers from his stash to include in the envelope, bless his heart.


And when I saw the Moxie Fab World post about a love card this is what I thought of...  that's what I get for crafting in the early hours of the morning with a cup of coffee by my side.

Hey Erin! Thanks for linking this up to the World Card Making Day party in the Moxie Fab World. Just a head's up--to be eligible for the prize, you need to add this to the World Card Making Day Gallery and add that URL to Mr. Linky. Thanks!

Ha! I've been doing the same! Now I have to churn out a bunch of sympathy cards tomorrow morning before work. Zoikes!

I think the first card is awesome for a teenager. The WMS image is super cute, the coffee is perfect for the love card and Mr. Ben's card rocks!!
