Back In My Crafting Groove!

It's official! I'm back in my Crafting Groove! Yaaay!  LOL  After last week's Crafty Weekend, I really wanted to get back at it this weekend- so I did! :o)

I have several projects that I've been neglecting, but now I can say that I am well on my way to 'clearing out my backlog'.  Thank you cards, birthday cards, graduation cards, invitations...the list goes on and on.  So much to do- so little time- but soooo much fun to be had!  

Here are some pics of what I've accomplished so far! 

You guys know I love Joy Fold cards!  I used the Green Stack from DCWV to pull this card together.  The 1 1/2" Circle Punch from Fiskars was just what I needed to make the corresponding closure.
I have always wanted to use the Bird cut on the Indie Art cart.  The thank you card my mom requested gave me a good reason to finally use it.  The flourish under the bird is from the Home Accents cart.  The background paper is from last year's Fun In the Sun stack from DCWV.  The pic doesn't really do it justice- I'm not the best photographer- the colors are much more vibrant in person!  :o)
Another request from my mom!  She saw the card that I made last weekend and requested one just like it.  But I decided to put a little spin on it.  The embellie is a Jolie's Boutique sticker that I thought was so pretty!  For the spin, I used the stamp and a light pigmented ink to create a watermarked background.  I think it turned out pretty well!
