Lots & Lots of Cards

We found out June 24th that we would be moving. Since that time, we've been quite occupied with job-hunting (1 down, 2 to go -- Tim has a new ministry with Bible Truth Music, Ian & I are still looking), house/apt. hunting, telling people we're moving with all the different reactions we're getting, and trying to wrap our own minds around things that have happened so quickly. We've begun the preliminary sorting and have officially packed the first 2 of many, many boxes!

So, yesterday, I took a break from all the moving activities and made some cards. It was so nice to occupy my mind with something else. Since I'm participating in two different card swaps, I needed several cards. I got on a roll and before the day was over I'd made 17 different cards. I think that's a card-making record for me. Anyway, here they are.

This first set is made from blog candy (aka gift) I rec'd from my friend, April, at Artistic Paperie. I used a card sketch of Brianna Kimmel's that was featured in the 6/28/08 ezine of Faithfully Yours for several of my cards (the first four cards below were made from the sketch). It made putting them together so easy for me. Most cards have stickles as accents. They just add some nice sparkle.

I used some paper available in the Faithfully Yours store from Daisy Bucket's Sweet Marabella line for the next four cards.
Then I just used random scraps for the rest.
Thanks for looking!! Hope you all have a great Lord's day tomorrow.

WOW girl you rocked those cards!! I love the black cardstock with that paper, I have to remember that when I use that paper. Awesome job!

Hope your moving details work out for you all really soon, I think of you so much lately and wish I were closer so I could help out in some way :(

Thanks for the link to the digi site, I didn't know about that one and that's a great freebie!!!!!!

{{HUGS}} to you, hope you have a wonderful day!!
