Card from Heather Spangel

Got this surprise card from a "friend" in Paper Craft Planet's Anything Goes group welcoming me into the 2012 Secret Pals group.  What a great card!  Her coloring is totally beautiful!!

Paul's Birthday Card!!

Here's a card I made for my brother, Paul's 66th birthday!!  I am so proud of him.  He is getting all his strength and eating abilities back following weeks of radiation and chemo for stage 4 throat cancer.  Prognosis is looking good but PET scan in April will be the final "tell-all".  I told him I made the card to look just like him...but it doesn't.  heehee

Cards, Cards, Cards!!

Soooo...Gerri Morgan came on Tues. and left today...FUN!!!
We did sketch challenges and just plain created.  We didn't make lots of
cards but we did have a wonderful time.  I could have "slumber" card parties
every month.  Card making with friends is always a plus!!  So...who's next???
Sue Chaney???  Bridget???  Sara Woodard???  Gerri again???
Anyone???  lol  I had a blast!

Here are Gerri's Beauties!!

Hope I didn't miss posting any.  Sketches sure
help me think outside of my norm...
Guess I don't have much imagination on my own.
