I'm Home!!

Hello everyone! I am home again. Actually been home for two weeks now but have been so busy with THINGS - ARG!!
Last weekend I quickly made two birthday cards for our Grandchildren and an Easter Card for my mom. I am afraid they didn't come out as well as I had hoped they would. I have been away for too long and have lost all my ideas :o( I also found I had trouble when it came to colouring my images. Couldn't seem to do anything right. However I am posting what I have done because this blog is supposed to be a reminder to me of where I am. No Easter cards for Brandon and Mariah this year as their Birthdays fall on Easter....

Here is Brandon's birthday card:


I found this perfect sterling silver charm for it at Michaels!!

Here is the inside:



Here is Mariah's card:


A little closer:


And the inside:


Here is Mom's Easter Card:




A picture of the pretty boarder punch I just bought with the pearls I added:


Sorry no details as these were made up so fast :o(
Have a wonderful Easter. Hope to be back real soon ~ Love, Candy

I'm not quite sure what you are talking about with your cards. If that's you "out of the loop" of things ... wow. You have nothing to worry about! I though they were very creative and I loved your coloring! Hugs!
