July Published Cards

Hello friends! We had a really rough day yesterday. Brady was being extremely hard on me. He spent three hours screaming and then went on a hitting rampage on me and Parker. It was exhausting. Also, I'm rather ashamed to admit this but we have a mouse in our house. I think it's the construction that's happening down the road but it's in here and I'm freaking out. I have super bad memories of growing up in rodent infested homes and it just reduces me to a puddle of anxiety. So, that's what's going on with me.

Anyhow, I wanted to blog the cards that I had published in the July 2010 issue of Cards Magazine. I really really like these cards, if that's ok for me to say.

This first one uses Unity's Could I Be Any Cuter? I love this set! I colored the tree and some of the leaves. Then I used every single piece of bling in my drawer. Ok, I didn't really but it feels like it right? The paper is all Basic Grey Origins. And I used my trusty corner rounder from EK Success.

Here's the other one. The stamps are a little clear set from EK Success. The paper is Basic Grey June Bug. The buttons are Gina K. I colored the grill with my Copics then added some some Sakura Glaze pen for some dimension. I accented with some Sakura silver gelly roll pen for a metallic look.

Hope you all have a wonderful and RELAXING Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Love the cards too.
    As for the mouse we live in a 108 year old house and every winter we see one in the house we put out the poison and usually within a day or two they are gone. I don't let them get me too excited. Not good for me or my spirits.

  10. Aw, how cute!! Love all the tree bling and the cute little grill card.

    Sometimes mice have nothing to do with your house and everything to do with what's around you. Do not be ashamed. I'm so sorry the mouse is causing you such anxiety. (((((HUGS)))))
