Make It Mondays

Nope, it's not what you are thinking. I am not a believer for Mondays...once a week for me is once a week too many, LOL. It is actually a card swap theme that I participated in during January for one of the yahoo groups that I'm in.  The idea is to mail a card every Monday to a particular person, and my partner's name was Judy.  Luckily Judy is an angel!! I was good for the first 2 cards but then work got crazy busy and my last two were a bit late. But since Judy is such a sweet person so didn't get mad at me.  I actually mailed my last 2 cards together and threw in some extra goodies to make up for my tardiness. Here's a look at the cards.

Week 1:
I chose an adorable image from My Favorite Things called Cute-a-tude!! I have fallen in with the MFT's stamps, papers, and especially dies!!! They are a great company and highly recommend them!!

Week 2:
For this card I chose a new stamp that I got from There She Goes Stamps.  I recently found this company and just adore their stamps. I've only purchased a few but have a wish list started so there will be more coming!
Oh and sorry about the picture quality on these. I didn't use my normal light tent and tried to make do with something different.....yep, it doesn't work!

Week 3:
I decided to go a bit springy on this one...getting kind of tired of this cold weather. I used a LOTV image...another company I love (are you seeing a theme here, LOL) I love how this one turned out, I'm thinking it's because the colors are so bright and cheery.
so now to the final card.....
Week 4:
I finished up using my ole go-to stamps, Magnolia! I'm not sure what's she's called, something like Tilda with Snow Heart.  One of Judy's fav colors is purple so I chose to use that as the focal color.  I really like the beige card with one color.
So that's it for today.  I should have some more to post soon but gotta get back to making some cards. Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend and kept warm!

I wrote a big long comment & then blogger lost it somewhere. Just wanted to say how I really enjoyed all these sweet little cards but Tilda gets my vote. I LOVE purple & I am addicted to Tildas (among a few other crafting supplies)so she wins ... Of course it wasn't a contest but I do so love your posts ...
Hugs, Janie
