Creative Cards for every day!

I've been super busy with all the end of the school year stuff going on with the two youngest girls. 
Youngest will be graduating from Middle School in a couple weeks as well as getting Confirmed! Middle girl is finishing up her sophomore year. Both are getting ready for auditions for Show Choir as well as finalizing next years class schedules! Then marching practices are starting so they can rock the last parade with the retiring band director. Middle is the Drum Major and directs the band and Youngest will be new to the drum line! So much fun.

Anyway, on to what I've been up to. Worked up this card yesterday quick before work. Fell in love with this Authentique paper, Sweet from the Delightful collection.  The main die is from Memory Box called Bailiwick Background. Butterflies from the Martha Stewart punch, Congratulations from Just Right Clear Dies, Flowers from Cheery Lynn and Fishtail banner by MFT.

 Working on ideas for MNT club at work. This is one idea that bounced into other ideas. So cute!
Spellbinders rectangle dies are used to cut out the frames. The cloud, sprig and trees are by Memory Box. Butterflies punch by Martha Stewart. Bunnies and grass by IO. I love how this turned out!!

 Another idea worked up for MNT. Patterned paper is Basic Grey. Flower die is Memory Box and ovals by Spellbinders. Isn't it just peachy? This card was inspired by one that Leann J. had on display at work. My scraplifted project of the day!!

And lastly I whipped this birthday card up quick on Friday night for my Middle and her friend to give one of their teachers for her birthday. Image is by Saturated Canary. Embossed background by Darice. Star circle by Memory Box and Fishtail banner by  MFT. Stamp by Great Impressions. Middle said that the actual card looked SO much cuter than the picture. I really enjoyed coloring her and can't wait to work her up into a couple other cards!

Now off to work on some graduation cards for all the graduations that are coming up fast. Need 3 for this weekend alone! YIKES!! I haven't even came up with a great idea for my grad cards yet! Better get my crafting on!
