A couple of cards...

Hiya everyone!

How is your Wednesday going??! Glad I am not at work today, but not happy dealing with ...everything else. Anyone ever feel like that?? (Please tell me yes!!! Please!!lol)

Anyhow, onwards.

I did get a couple of cards done. It was so hard to find time this weekend to get my craft on. It was my MIL's birthday party, and going to get haircuts for my guys. A hectic weekend, and I am relieved that it is over. Phew! :)

So, this card is for the weekly challenge over at They are celebrating their 4th year in business, so the theme was celebrating! Fitting. I did the challenge following one of the DT's cards---a stair/tri-fold card. Had never done one before, and I must be honest, it was frustrating for me. But it's done! Yippee!

The second card I made can be for other challenges, I guess. Not 100% sure of what to enter this one in , but I think it's going to be for Scrapbooker's Paradise. I play along with them once in a while, when I have the chance, that is.

She's kinda cute! Obviously it's S.Patty's themed! I am part Irish, after all! :) This one will be entered in Inkspirational's 'Green' Challenge, too.

Anyways, that's it for me today. Hope to post again really soon, folks!

Be safe. Get crafty!

Absolutely fabulous cards! I adore the wonderful use of the shamrocks on your second one! Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational! :)

PS: In order to be considered for a Top 5 spot at our challenge, you must have the challenge prompt picture in your entry post. (The picture telling what the challenge is--shades of green.)
