Popping in with a few cards!

Hello there!  I hope you all remember me.  😄  It's been a while since I shared cards with you, and I've missed doing it!

I have just a few minutes before I get ready for church, so this will be short and sweet.

The first card was a custom design for my church friend's friend who was planning to retire from her job.  She loves dragonflies, and I dug into my stash for this older Stampin' Up set, Measure of a Life.  I'm excited to have a chance to use it, as it mostly sits patiently on my studio shelf, waiting for ink.  The Bible verse written around the dragonfly is from Ecclesiastes 3:1: 

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.

That seems like a good sentiment for someone who is retiring. 😁

The next card looks like a Valentine, but I used it as a loving birthday card for my mom, who loves the colors of black and white.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Bloomin' Hearts Thinlit die set, in black, and added some gems to some of the flowers.  The 'xoxo' sentiment comes from SU's Bloomin' Love coordinating stamp set.

And the last card is masculine, with a collage style used (mainly because I'm trying to use up some of my prepackaged die cuts and stickers).  I have two stamped items on here:  the leafy branch from SU's Le Jardin Botanique and a postmark image from Inspired By Stamping's Vintage Postcards set.

Thanks so much for coming by today.  It was a joy to share with you!  God bless you!
