I made cards ...

It occured to me that I have the need for a few cards in the next week or two - lots of birthdays coming up. So, I made cards.

I managed to get 7 cards out of a few scraps of basic grey paper I found. I pulled out my 'friends' stamp for some of them so they fit with the card making dare - meet a challenge, fulfil a need.


This is my favoutite - I didn't mean to, but there's symbolism there: a circle of friends, friends stick together and hold each other up, friends wrapped in love.

So - if you've got a birthday coming up and you read my blog - try and forget these cards incase one of them is for you!

There are a million cool challenges out there at the moment and the deadlines are passing me by without a hope of me meeting them. It's kinda frustrating but also cool to sit back and see what my scrapping buddies are coming up with. I am in envy of those who seem to manage all the challenges and produce some amazing work.

Thanks Angela for the help with placing my pics - it's kinda simple really. Duh me.

Have a great weekend everyone - 'specially those going to camp in the south.
