A couple of projects

Since I'm not crafting as much right now, I'm going to backtrack a bit so I can still make some blog posts. Here are a couple of cards - one from a couple of weeks ago, and other from Sunday when I went to visit grandma in the hospital.

The first one I made for 2 reasons - 1., I really like to make encouraging cards for my boyfriend whenever I can. He is such a hard worker, that sometimes I don't know how he does it. He is a devoted worker to his job, a full-time student, a wonderful papa to our doggie, and the most amazing boyfriend I could ask for. I know how hard college can be (sometimes I am still in disbelief that I made it through!), and I like to encourage him when I can. 2., he loved this stamp when we found it at Papertrix, and I wanted to find a way to use it... ;)

This next card was very fun, and soothing to do. I was thrilled to find these puzzle cards at Archivers because puzzles are one of my grandma's favorite hobbies. There are endless possibilities of directions to go with something like this.

^ Recollections brad + Tim Holtz Texture Hammer; Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Flock

^ Ranger Enamel Accents; Hero Arts Prisma Glitter
