I had some scraps of paper lying on my desk, so when I sat down to make cards for the week I reached for those. I also pulled out some dies I purchased this summer at our local scrapbook store. I find that when I am making cards, especially, I don't want to take time to cut anything with the cricut.
The coffee cup birthday card ended up going to the mom of one of the graduates I made a card for this year. Funny enough I used the same papers for both cards...

July is a popular month for birthdays and anniversaries. I've been enjoying the chance to create some new cards, but I am looking forward to scrapbooking some pages for my youngest daughter one of these days.

I've had a set of water color paints for several months now, but today was the first time I got them out to use on a couple of cards. For the thank you card I just used a few pinks to create the background. The sympathy card was made using browns and a green. After the paper dried, I embossed the paper to make it look like wood grain. I love how this card turned out.
