Some Cards to Share

I have a few cards that I've made so far this week. Two of them are for Operation Write Home and the other is for my husband's grandpa whose birthday is Sunday.

This one I made this morning using the current sketch at Unscripted Sketches. I have been really into making masculine cards for some reason lately. I had fun cutting out the little creatures using the "Boys Will Be Boys" Cricut cartridge.

 For the next one I used the "Sentimentals" Cricut cartridge for the feather pen and the sentiment. This one was a pretty quick one. The other thing I noticed I am into right now is pen stitching to outline elements, I feel like it adds a finishing touch and most of the time I am too lazy to hand stitch so this is a quick alternative.

Last is the birthday card I made for Rick's grandpa. I used an older Mojo Monday sketch for this one. For the background, I used a Crafter's Workshop template and Distress ink. I used my Cricut for this one too: I used the "Storybook" cartridge for the scalloped circle and bracket shape.


  1. I love the pen stitching! It really does a marvelous job of showcasing an element! The wee critters are just waaay too cute! Thanks for sharing this fun card with us this week at Unscripted Sketches! Hope you will join us again next week :)
