More cards for soldiers

I tell you friends I am just not very computer savy!  I've spent hours trying to "pretty up" my blog with little success!  Oh well, I'd rather be creating things instead of spending so much time trying to do something I don't have the knowledge for.  Maybe my daughter-in-law will come and help me figure out how to make it pretty some day.  Today I've been painting a wall clock I found at a great price and and old lamp.  I'm re-doing my living room so this week-end I'm not doing much crafting.  Here are some cards I made earlier this month.

I'm so thrilled to have followers!  Thank you all for your lovely comments.  I'll be putting on more pictures later this week end.  Making cards is one of my favorite past times.  I sometimes just don't bother with the house work ect. when a knew idea hits me!  You fellow crafters know what I mean! LOL!  I make cards for soldiers with the Cricut group and Cricut card fairies.  I also make center pieces for my church coffee tables using my scrapbook and card making skills.  I enjoy that also and will have to post pictures when I get the next group done.  I don't know about the rest of you but can't think of any thing more fun than creating something from all the scraps of paper, ribbon, and flowers except maybe shopping for all those things!

Sometimes I think I just need to sit here and be calm and then I can figure out how to do things on the computer!  I'm always in such a hurry!  Since I work full time I don't have a lot of time and there is soooo much I want to do.  Ideas are always floating around and I never seem to get to all of them or I run out of energy!  Any thanks to my friends who always encourage me!
I think I finally figured out how to post pictures.  I know sometimes I'm a little dense!  The cards I made with the lace and flowers are my favorite type to do.  I used my Cricut machine and carts and pre-made flowers, added a little ribbone, pearls, jewels and inked the edges.  This is probably my favorite past time although I do scrapbook some and I love to decorate my apartment.
