Cards for Friends final cards...

Well, here are the two final cards I made for two of my co-volunteers at the CT Humane Society. They might be my two favorite of the whole set!!! First is a PTI stamp from the "Mailbox Greetings" collection. I watercolored this image and was quite happy with the result! I also used the PTI sentiment, a Martha Stewart punch and a Cuttlebug circle embossing folder.

The last card of this gift package is from the PTI "Button Bits" collection. It's such a GREAT set, I reach for it a lot!!! I used the Martha Stewart punch again along the side of the card, tied some ribbon and a bit of patterned paper and the PTI sentiment and a finished card! Sounds really quick and easy, but most of my cards take me about an hour to make (YIKES!)
Maybe sometime in the future, I'll be able to speed up my cardmaking process, but it IS what it IS right now :) Thanks for visiting :)

Don't you just LOVE Papertrey Ink stamps!? I got 5 new sets for Christmas and can't wait to have some time to start using them. I love your coloring on the mailboxes, that is one set that I don't have. Also, love your border on the button bits card. So cute!

What a great sentiment for the mailboxes image. And I really like the colors of the buttons you chose for your flower garden.
