A couple of cards...

Hi everyone! Are you looking forward to the big holiday weekend? I bet you've all got lots of BBQ plans and outdoor activities going on, right? I think my mom, my sister and I are going to go The Cheesecake Factory for lunch today and then hubby and I are going to do some yard work later on. As for tomorrow and Monday, I'm not really sure what's going on except of course for church.

Well, I'll be posting my Project 365 photos soon, but for now I have a couple of cards to share that I made last week.

One was for a friend who suddenly lost her father last weekend. So tragic and unexpected. I've always known it to be true but you truly really never know when it's your time to go (or someone else for that matter).

The other card I made was for a friend who's going through a difficult time. I just wanted to send her a little pick-me-up and let her know I'm thinking of her.



Can you tell I'm still loving my border punches? I think I've used them on every project I've made over the last few months, lol! At least I'm using something in my stash! :)

Have a great weekend!
