April Cards

I missed my goal of creating this month's cards before the month started, but not by much. I need three cards this month: two birthdays and one anniversary. I started with 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" pre-made cards and used cardstock and patterned paper scraps for each one. I added flowers and/or buttons on the birthday cards and a Mary Engelbreit drawing for the anniversary card.

I'm glad to get these cards completed (especially since one of the birthdays is on the 4th!), so now I can check and see what cards I need for May.

Very nice. Natashia is the card maker here, perhaps I should have her make up some this summer.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today :) I've just had a little look at your list of completed crafty things in MArch and I'm in awe! Where do you find the time???

You are very disciplined. I need to make it more of a goal to get cards done every month. I'm off to put it on my calender now!

I'm impressed that you actually get your cards done early. That last one looks like a Mary Engelbreit drawing to me?
