Hooley Dooley it's 2010!

These are my first cards for the year after a well deserved break. I felt a bit rusty at first so I tried a tutorial for a "Triangle Trifold Project by Beate Johns on Split coast. I was a lot smaller than I expected and I messed up the first one ( hey metric girl don't ya get measurements in inches! LOL) but I salvaged it into a card of sorts.

Then I made a birthday card for my Aunty Joan. This just a cheap little stamp I picked up at Spotlight and I can't remember the brand. I used my new Martha Stewart punch and am VERY impressed with it (I can talk about all these brands now I am no longer tied to SU ) it punches and dry embosses: wow! I very lightly sponges the image with Bashful blue and a palest pink, made my own embellishment and there you go. A bit fussy but it is for an older lady who will love it.

Then I played with my Forest friends SU set. I thought I might get rid of this awful blue but with other "in-colours" it looked really good - hey what do you know! LOL. SU do great in-colours yeah? Simple but groovy I think.

Then I played with a few sets to make a few cards to sell at my Church's kids music group, but I wanted to make some faith kind of cards that looked cool and fresh. What do you think?
