365 Cards–Days 201, 202 and 203


I owe out a million emails, phone calls and visits.  My mother and father in law left for home today after a wonderful two week visit and it will take me a few days to get back on track.  Thanks for your patience.  I look forward to creating more freebies and templates and coming by to comment on YOUR blog when I am able. 

I’m playing catch-up with my cards for 365 cards 

Day 201 – 1 + 1 = 1 Beautiful Card


“Pick two of your dearest friends and choose something about them to contribute to your card.  It can be anything you want that makes you think of them.”

With this in mind I based my card on my dear friends Rose and Melanie.


My friend Rose – well, that’s obvious on my card, but Melanie makes her own jewellery so I added this charm on.  The charm was a piece of recycled necklace or earring which I tore down.  I do this a lot. 

Paper – Pink Paislee – Butterfly Wings

Stamp – Inkadinkadoo

Day 202 – Super Sketchy Sunday

Here’s the sketch:

And my very simple take on it:


Forgive the flash flair – I missed all the daylight today and had to use a flash. 

Stamps – Fiskars

Day 203 – Back to School Masculine Style


“The theme is Back-to-School, and as I mentioned yesterday, it needs to be suitable for boys/men.”

This was an easy one for me as my husband is an instructor and there are always cards needed for teachers.


No frills or fluff (really restrained myself) just a simple inspirational quote. 

Three more tomorrow and I should be caught up.  Time to go zing out a few emails and catch up on life.

Thanks for visiting!
