Just for Fun Cards!

Whew. What a day. I've been busy, but it's good busy. I did want to drop by to show you a couple of cards I made recently.

First up... on how I love Hambly card:

This is a cute little 4x4 card. I don't know why I like this card so much... oh yea that's right NEUTRAL AND NEUTRAL. I can't help it.

Many Thanks

Great cards, Courtney!!! I love neutrals also. They really are my comfort zone. But I'm enjoying my bright funky colors from the Marmalade collection as well ;)

Oh how I love Hambly too, but what I really love is how your Hambly love rocks a graphic card!! Yup, yup on the color thing a la Sassafrass....hard to not be colorful, huh?!

Glad you are enjoying your book! Isn't that just the best....when you get absorbed and swept away by the words on the pages of a great book?! Love it when that happens! :>
