and more cards

It seems that all the crafting I do anymore is card making! I really enjoy the creating process and love the final results in most cases but I have to find time to scrap!! but first I have to do my Christmas cards....ugh.

This first card is a get well card for a friend's niece that recently had brain surgery. The inside says "HOPPING YOU ARE FEELING BETTER!" This one I rejuvinated from a card that was made during a stamp camp several years ago. The hair gel that looks like water had dried up so I peeled off the layers and squeezed a dollop of hair gel into a little baggy and ta-da! usuable card. This accompanied a package of goodies I sent out to Avra from my NSSS group on the Cricut messageboard. Shh - dont tell her that I posted it here!
This was my sister Lisa's birthday card - papers are from Cosmo Cricket, scalloped oval is a SU! punch and the buttons and flowers were things that were just hanging out waiting to be used. The ribbon is PaperTreyInk - love there stuff!

This is the birthday card I made for my brother Michael. Too bad I didn't make it in time for him to get for his birthday....I was late as usual. Paper is Basic Grey, stamp is ...I dont remember!

Oh, that hoppy card is too fun! (I'm also amazed there's a piece of paper I don't own. Yes, my name is JoAnn and I'm a paper addict. lol)

I've been scrapping for about 8 yrs (a reader who ran scrap retreats got me onto it), card making for about six, and mostly, for the past five years, making blank cards for troops to send back home to family and friends.

I love your creativity (!!) and now you've got me wondering if I should sometimes share the cards I make on my own blog.

Thanks for sharing your cards and Happy New Year!
