Finishing some cards I started

For some reason, when I start making a card it kind of snowballs into making a bunch of cards. 

Do you do this? 

I look for just the 'perfect piece of DP' (PPDP) and while searching I find 2 or 3 more that I like.  So I pull those out too.  Then I cut my selected PPDP to size and notice the scrap would also make a nice card if I flipped it to the pattern on the other side.   And I proceed to start card #2.  Of course, card #1 isn't finished.  Next I pull out a stamp for Card #1 and while searching I find 2 or 3 more that I like and would look good on Card #2 or the extra DP (EDP) I have set aside.  So I go back to Card #1, stamp my image and decide I would like it better on a sheet of the EDP.  Card # 3 is now started.  And so it continues until I have partially made cards covering my table and I can't find my scissors or a free acrylic block or Card #1!!!!

Last week one day my DH suggested I put the extra leaves in the dining room table so I'd have more room.  He was serious! 

So here are a few of the cards I finished over the weekend. 

As you can see, I'm just loving the Playful Pengies Stamp Set from Sparkle N Sprinkle
as well as their great glitters and embossing powders.

Back soon with a few more. 


  1. What a sweet series of cards! Lots of bling and great job on the coloring.

  2. Oh my...those cards are darling-the penguins so cute!


Thanks so much for saying hi.
