Cards, cards and more cards!

Here we go with another slideshow! I'm trying to make a whole bunch of cards and then pick about 10 to add to another project I made a few weeks back. It seems to me that this would make a nice Mothers Day gift for my Mother-in-law!  There are also three Thank You cards that I made today to send off to people who sent me birthday gifts last week. I need to make a couple more tomorrow and get these in the mail, pronto!

In many cases, I kept the card very simple.  For some, I cut the paper so that it would itself be the card and only added the saying.  For others I added crystal accent to existing elements to bring those elements out.  I was going for elegant!  I hope that I succeeded!

As always, I appreciate your taking the time out of your lives to pop in over here and take a look!  Don't forget to look over on the right side for the latest blog giveaway!
