I just realized that I was going to try posting once a week and here it's been three weeks already. Where does time go? I guess the saying "how time flies when you're having fun" must apply.

I've been busy making cards, as usual. Quite a few years ago, I purchased a set of 24 "designer" cards made by K & Company. I seem to remember using about half to make Christmas cards one year. What is unique about these particular cards is the size. They fit in a business size envelope, so they are long and narrow.  Well, I finally decided to use these cards and made a couple with a nautical theme.

I used a Close to my Heart "Seaside Greetings" for this first card with Stampin' Up designer series paper for the background. I'm very please with the results.

I wasn't as happy with the results of the second card but it will have to do. I put clear embossing powder over the image to make it appear to be behind glass but I think I should have stamped the images a little bolder. I used Stampin' Up "By The Tide" stamp set for this card. 
That's it for this session. Have a wonderful Easter everyone and happy stamping.

It has been a long time since I posted on my blog. I think it's time to start again. I've been on a card making role lately and thought it might be time to share some of the cards I've been having fun with.

I decided to use some of the wonderful Art Impressions stamps I've recently purchased, along with a few other "comical" stamps I had in my stash.

My brother-in-law has a birthday coming up in April and I made this card for him. He has a large property and does a lot of mowing in the summer, so he'll appreciate this one. Hope you enjoy it as well.

See you soon, folks. I won't wait so long, next time.
