A few more cards…

I have been making cards again. I seem to be in the grips of a paper crafting frenzy. This is, in part, due to a promise I made to myself, that March will be a writing month. I want to continue with my novel, the one I started for the NaNowriMo challenge so I am going to devote some focused time to it.

Meanwhile, with Mother’s Day approaching, I have made some cards which are a little different from my normal designs. Two differences. One – the colour schemes are not the combinations I would normally choose to use, such as pink and green, and two – I have tried to use leftover bits of paper. Not just any bits, but bits which have been extensively punched and have been left with an interesting pattern. Sometimes it’s a repetitive pattern, and sometimes something that is just an interesting shape.

I have also made a couple of more card toppers, featuring my ‘Bear in the Garden’. This time he is in the garden at night, admiring the night sky, and then playing hide and seek.

I have two friends who have birthdays soon, and I have made them birthday cards which reflect their love of purple and flowers.

Now all I have to do is create some Easter cards!

    Susie,
    I received the lovely cards and earrings in the mail today! Thank you so much. And also the bookmark with cats is just purrrfect too. We just adopted two, 8 month old brother kitties from the animal shelter. The flicker idea is a great one, I’ll have to stop by and look.
    Love your blog. Thanks again for the wonderful OWOH gifts!

    Hi Sharon. I’m chuffed that you like your freebies, and that the cat bookmark was a good choice. I love cats, and have four of my own. Your two kitties are lucky to be going to a loving home.
    I shall catch up with you shortly on your blog.
    Take care,
    Susie.

    I LOVE that middle mother’s day card. I think its the chocolaty color 🙂

    That’s a really good way of trying to use up scraps. And challenging.

    BTW- what’s a card topper? I make cards too and have heard that term a few times.
