During the hurricane, I was fortunate enough not to lose power. Thankfully, I live in an apartment building that didn't see any damage so my family and I basically hunkered down for the week and waited it out. During this time, I made a few cards, most of which were the Halloween ones I already posted.
These last two were made for my friends, Rachael and Monique. They were going to be just saying hello cards so this is what I came up with.
For Rachael, I picked some flower paper from My Mind's Eye 6x6 designer pads. The white flowers is from a Martha Stewart paper puncher and I put some blue jewels on them for some pop. I've seen so many cards where people rip the bottom layers, but when I tried, it looked ugly, not chic. So I took one of my patterned scissors and cut at angles. I'm really glad with the way it came out.
For Monique, if you remember, she really loves birds so I looked through my paper pads once again and found a brown pattern with a cute pink bird. He sorta reminded me of the bird on the cover of the Death Cab for Cutie album, Transatlanticism which is one of our favorite records so I went with him and choose a complimenting pink and purple paper for the above. This card was actually created around that middle sticker which I don't even remember where I got it from, but seeing as how there was a hurricane going on, I thought the sentiment, "Friends Forever, No Matter the Weather," was appropriate.

Hope everyone made it through Sandy alright and we're remembering those less fortunate. Remember the Red Cross is always taking donations!
Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!
