A couple cards to share tonight. The first one was by request for my Grandmother whose Nephew just became a grandfather again. He likes birds. My mother was over and was going to be leaving soon and she said "Oh your grandmother needs a Congratulations Grandpa card". Which means I made this card in about 10 minutes (sewing and all!). That is a record for me. The new grandpa likes birds, so I covered a chipboard bird from Scenic Route with paper from Basic Grey and trimmed with an exacto knife and then sanded the edges. The sentiment is a combo of a Hero Arts stamps and a stamp from the $1 bin at Michaels (there were all sorts of family words, it's from awhile back so don't get excited and go out looking for it). Stiched around the edges and wa-la! A manly card that has a bird! I did also use Kraft as the base. I took a kraft hiatus, but it is back with a bang!

Card number two was another quickie. It was for my Mom's birthday. Sometimes I just don't know what kind of a card to make for her. So I used some of the Amy Butler papers from the mat stack (the Sola line) and added a simple ribbon treatment and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink that I stamped inside the Border Basics Rectangle.
So that's that. Two nice and simple cards. Have a great night!
