Just a quick share

I should totally be doing 9000 other things right now, BUT, to make you happy here I am. Posting 2 cards I made yesterday.

This first one is a fun card. I totally CASEd it from someone on I colored the jeep in with my copics. The rest is SU! product. It's for my brother in law's birthday, he's a total car freak so I hope he likes it. teehee

I think all the product I used is retired though.

This next one is a thank you card (obviously) for some friends of ours. Used the new Cajun Craze. (love that color) After I stamped the flowers from Elements of style onto shimmery cs I sent it through the big shot using the lattice embossing folder. Soooo cool!
Well, back to work I go....

It's only been

18 days since my last post!! Yikes, I've had a few emails about updating this old baby. hehehe
So here I am, updating. Summer so far has been crazy busy but I still managed to have my mother/daughter class. Turned out great and I have enough people to do it again. Betcha wanna see what we made right?
First of all, I made these treats ahead of time to give to every mother/daughter team. The daughters sure liked them. I made them with the Big Shot using the pillow box die, then punched out the scallop oval window. I made the flowers with the floral fusion die (with the big shot) and some old brads I had kicking around. The ribbon is old retired ribbon from SU!.
