A Few Cards

I wanted to apologize for neglecting my poor blog. I have been so busy with my kids now that my older 2 are out of school. Trying to keep 4 boys happy is not always so easy. I hope to make some new projects very soon to post, but until then here ya go. These are cards that I forgot to post and came across them this weekend.

I made this card for a dear friend of mine that needed some cheering up. This is my first card using a program called SCAL with my Cricut. I used one of Penny Duncan's files for the nestie looking file. I love these! I also used SU cardstock and inks. The stamp set is by Stephanie Barnard and I love how little chicks turned out.

This next card I made for my brother-in-law's birthday. It is so hard to make "boy" birthday cards, but here is my attempt at it. I used SU cardstock and some embellishments that I don't remember where I found them. The stamp set is from an Alaska themed set that I got off of Ebay and I believe their name was Prairie Peddlers if I remember right.
The inside of the card is very simple and I again used one of Stephanie Barnard's stamps.

This card I made for one of my son's friends birthday. I used SU cardstock and also stamped the Happy Birthday from SU. The cute moose stamp is from Riley and Comapny and you can visit their blog to get some very cute ideas. I also use the words let's party from one of Stephanie Barnard's sets. To make the card not so dark I used a combination of SU markers and colored pencils. Not a bad job I do say so myself since it only took me 10 minutes to do this whole card.(totally spaced til the last minute to make the card)
