done like dinner!

I am celebrating because ALL of my crafty responsibilities are done! Invites.....done. Commissioned cards.....done.

Now I have housework to catch up on that I have ignored for the last 2 weeks!
The girlfriend that I visited at the end of May, is coming up with her hubby and little one so we can surprise the bride-to-be for a girls weekend. But as of right now the bed they are to be sleeping on is covered with clean laundry!

So off I must go to tidy. But first I wanted to share the last few cards I was commissioned to make. I know which is my fave! This first one by far. I know there are a bunch of ones like this out there but I needed a girl card and how cute does that whale look in pink?



I had cut a border from the PTI simple circles die (you will see it on the card below!) and liked the way the left over looked with the off-kilter "waves". The middle layer is the same pink cardstock but I went over it with versamark to keep it in the same tone but add some change.


I had wanted to use the frame created from cutting out the Mat Stack 3 for this card, and so this card was born.



For this last card, I had made the birdie first, using the single images from PTI's Modern Basics set. Doesn't it make an adorable little bird?

Well, thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a great day! :)

  7. LOVE all of these, Kasia! Of course, I am partial to the whale since my hubby studies them (though not in pink! LOL!), but I love the layout of the second one, and your Modern Basics bird is brilliant. All so cute!
