Thank You Card

I've been buying more card making supplies than making cards recently.  My favorite local scrap booking store had a members sale and I stocked up on a lot of goodies.  I also have a bit of any an ebay addiction.  I told myself after the member's sale that I need a monthly budget and I can't exceed it.  Then I went on ebay.  Oh well, a person has to have a hobby right?

Today I made this card.  I used a new Tim Holtz stamp and distress ink as well as a Fiskar's punch that I recently bought.  I guess that justifies my new purchases!

Birthday Card

It's been awhile since my last post, but I have been making some cards.  Birthday cards.  For some people who may read the blog and see their card before their Birthday.  That just wouldn't be right!

I made this card for my nephew who will be 13 this year.  I know he won't see the blog and it happens that Scrapbooker's Paradise has a challenge this week that this card will fit into.

13 is a hard age.  A lot of images are too young, but on the other side a regular old masculine card is to adult...and doesn't have a 'cool' factor.  I thought an edgy, graffiti inspired card would be kind of cool.  I hope he likes it!
