Two Cards - and a New Grandson!

 A quick post for today.  I'm very tired and can't think straight!  Not much description, but a couple of cards.

This first card uses papers from a purchase from Archiver's Hot Spot.  The flower is a stamp from Michael's dollar spot.  The ribbon is Papertrey Ink.  The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.  And the main image layers and matting are a QuicKutz die.  You can find the die here.
Here is the second one.  The base is PTI Kraft.  The stamp is another one from Michael's dollar area.  The matting for the main image is another QuicKutz die.  You can find this one here.   I embossed the oval with another QuicKutz die found here.  (Sorry the link was originally incorrect!!)  The sentiment is from a clear dollar set.  Wow, that's a lot of dollar stamps! LOL! 

On a personal note, our new grandson arrived yesterday.  I got to visit him when he was only about 35 minutes old - how exciting!  It will be awesome to have him so close.  (His name is Owen Douglas and he was seven pounds four ounces.  He arrived at 12:18 p.m. yesterday.)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Wonderful cards, Lynette! Congratulations on the new grandbaby. I know what a blessing it is to have grandchildren close at hand. I live in south Mpls and have 3 grandkids just 9 blocks away. So much fun!
