  1. I made my card as a Father's day card but I am not quite sure which one of the dads on my list is going to receive it. I have several uncles (mine and my husbands) and friends who all get cards!

  3. I made this card for my great-nephew, who's into lots of sports. I used the sketch and 2 of the tic-tac-toe items (dots & banners). This was fun! (Sorry I deleted the first comment. I had to fix something.)

  4. My grandma gifted me a few crafty items this weekend so I'm sending this card her way! :)

  5. My card is for a dear friend who is experiencing some low points in her life and could use a little surprise.

  6. I am Lucky # 13 and my card is off to a dear friend who has been feeling quite low lately - hopefully this will make her smile!
