The card I made for my next door neighboor

This is the card I made for my mothers friend that lost her husband today.
I used cardstock from DCWV Luxury stack. The words are from Lyrical letters. The birds are from Quick kutz.
On the inside of the card I cut out a cross from the Easter 2010 cartridge, and some more birds from Quick kutz. I hope the cards tell that I think of them now these hard days to come.

Sympathy cards

My childhood neighboor, and the father of my best friend growing up, died today.
His name was Odd, and it feels realy sad that he passed away. I made to cards today. One for my childhood friend, and one for her mother. This is the front of the card. I cut out the ornamental leafs from the new Lite cart botanical. The paper is from the Luxury stack from DCWV. I got the paperstack yesterday and it is just lovely!.
Behind the leafs I have grey paper. The word Kondolerer was from Lyrical letters. It got on a bit crocked, and I did not manage to fix it before the glue dried. Oh well, it is hand made.
On the inside of the card I made a Dolphin form the Splish Splash cartridge. Odd was a seaman all his life, and it is said that Dolphins come to the aid of sailors that's in need. I used matte silver and grey paper. I stamped ornamental corners with weatered wood distress ink.

On the back is another cut from the botanical cartridge.

Birthday Cards

July is a month of many birthdays, and I made a few cards. This card was made from the wild card cartridge. I used blue mirror cardstock for the wave and the fan. The blue flowerpattern paper is from a paper pad I bougth last year.
This is the inside of the card. I tried not to put to many items of this card to get a clean oriental feel to the card.
This card that I made for my sister in law was made from the Wild Card cartridge as well. And I decroated it with a model from Forever young. The paper was from a suprice bundle that I bought on sale. I have just the one paper, and made the most of it. I think this card turned out very well, and are realy pleased with it!
This card is the same card cut out from Wild cards, with another paper from the suprice bundle. I turned the card the other way, and gave it a big flower to get a summer look to it.
I put small dots of dimentional on the flower and leaf to give it some dew drops. I'm happy with the way it turned out. I sent this card to my online friend Dalis.

Cards that I got in the mail

My son had his last day at the daycare senter today!

My 5 year old son are now ready to start school when we are done with our sommer vacation.
It feels rater strange not having a little boy anymore, but only school children.
He wanted a card to give to the grown-ups today, so we made a card yesterday. And he wanted Batman! I used the Cricut Batman cartridge and one of the new Tim Holtz embossing folders. The paper behind Batman is orange, and I used fired brick distress ink on the paper after embossing.
On the inside of the card we also had Batman!
And Batman on the back as well. I made the card rather big so that I did not have to deal with to small cut outs, but on the face it was tiny anyway.

Kort med Wild cards

I was on a forum and read a tread about the Cricut Cartridge Wild Card, and if it was one to have or not. It was one of the first cartrides I ever bought, but have not used for a long time. I got so inspired that that evening I dug it out and made 2 cards. I used my Gypsy to strech the card out a bit to get it wider. It is a rather slim card on the cartridge.
This white card I made as a birthday card to my sister inlaw that have her birthday on saturday. With the red flowers on the paper I used I think that the red halfpearls is perfect.

On the inside I used the lovely dragonflys from Pagoda. The stamp say Happy Birthday for you that do not read Norwegian.
I put the dragonflys on the back of the card to.
I used paper from K&C on this card, and the blushing roses on the paper went well with the flowers I found in my stash. It does not show so well on the photo, but the halfpearls are olive green. I made this card for a co-worker that want it for a 60-year old birthday girl.
The flower on the inside is from Pagoda as well.
