Bad Blogger!

Oh, it's never good when your mother reminds you to update your blog. Oops! No worries, because I have goals for September, and one of them is to complete 10 cards. Granted, this is a pretty low goal (that's like 2.5 cards per week), but if nothing else, it guarantees at least that I'll have material to post.

To catch up, here are the ones from the end of August.

This first one was inspired by several other bloggers who were caught up in a Splitcoast challenge. The challenge was to make a Cami tri-fold card, following directions created by Beate. It looked so cute, I tried it out and I fell in love. What an easy and cute card style!

The idea for the next card had been kicking around in my head for a while now, but once I got it out, I ended up making a couple. I love Amuse's "Gone Fishing" stamp because of its font, particularly the "fishing" part of it. However, I thought it'd be cute as a "Best Fishes" sentiment. So, I freehanded the idea. What do you think? The Amuse fish is up on pop dots and covered in diamond glaze.

I didn't originally have an intended recipient for this card, but I ended up using it in the same week. I love my slice of cake, and I love all my Marvy punches, so I figured I'd put together what I love and see what happened. Well, it passed muster, but I'm not in love with the sentiment. I hand-wrote it, and I just don't like the way it looks. Luckily, I'm learning how to layout sentiments on the computer, so perhaps I'll give it another go later with a typewritten font.

Lastly, this card is a CASE of the card I did for my mom's birthday. I love this version of "Happy Birthday" because it's so elegant. So, I used it for my aunt, whose birthday is early next week. The butterfly is up on pop dots and the paper is Anna Griffin. Enjoy!
