Fall Card Exchange!

Hello!  It's been a busy couple of days as I have been working on a lot of different projects and some of them crafty.  :>  The major one is Ariel's birthday invites!  Still slaving away with it!  I wanted to pop in and share two cards.  A few weeks ago I organized a fall card exchange in the Hero Arts Flickr group!  I love organizing these card exchanges, I love bringing friends together sending cards that they love to make to each other!

I made this card for Kathy:

I embossed the flower and leaf from the Floursh Flower and Leaf set by Hero Arts and than colored it with several Distress inks!  I also colored the lace with spiced marmalade ink, I was really pleased with how it turned out!  

I received the most lovely card from Brenda:

I have her card sitting on my side coffee table and I so enjoy seeing it through the day!  The rhinestones glitter beautifully!  It's so fun to open an envelope and find a gorgeous handmade card!

Have a great night I am off to bed!

Oh what beauties!

I am also working on my son's birthday invites! Some days I think I am crazy to put this much effort into something that is going to eventually get tossed!
