I have had a great weekend!  The sun was out part of the time, though it snowed for a while also (a typical day in north central Montana).  My husband was home and we were able to putter around a little.  We ate out with friends on Friday as we often do.  We made a trip out of town for groceries and to pick up a prescription, and went to church.  I had just the right amount of time for crafting.  Life can be very good!

I'm going to enter this card in a challenge at Pause, Dream, Enjoy.  It's fun to see how it looks compared to those others made.

I've been working on a double fold card that will let the inside unfold slowly.  Didn't get a picture of the first one I made so I'll have to make another.  It was pretty cute...  But I'm pleased with this one also.  This is for a friend who celebrates her birthday this week.  The sentiment (a freebie) says "birthdays are good for you, studies show that people who have the most live the longest."  What could be more perfect?

The next card is the same style, but maybe not quite so good.  I can't quite say what else I wish I had done, maybe used a different green for the base card, or maybe I should have embossed it.  I wanted to, but it didn't fit in my Sizzix Texture Botique.  I'll have to come up with some better plan, I guess.  Anyway, this is for my mom, hoping it will help her enjoy Spring! 

I'm off to try to finish at least one more card.  It's part-way done, so maybe I'll make it and can post it tonight.
