365 Cards--3 More Cards for Week #2

I'm all caught up for the week (I think), and if I can make a card for tomorrow's challenge I'll have completed a full week of challenges. I know there is no way I can keep this up. I only had to work three days this week, and I barely got my cards done! I'm so happy, though, because I have made SO many cards in the past two weeks. I really need to find a good way to organize them (like a cute card box) because they're really starting to pile up! Anyway, on to my cards.

Day #10--Picture This

I think the card is really plain, but I suppose you don't want a really jazzy sympathy card. The beautiful photo is from Stacy M. Smith. She was kind enough to send me several photos last summer, and I was supposed to try incorporating them into my cards. I make holiday photo cards with pictures of my son all the time, but this was a bit of a challenge for me.

Day #12--Thursday's Theme

My moving card can be used for somebody who is moving away or just "moving on" to bigger and better things. I have students who work for me, so this would be a great thank you/congratulations/best wishes type card when they graduate. I used my new K & Company papers, Making Memories brads, machine stitching, and a computer-generated sentiment.

Day #13--Festive Friday

I also think this card is kind of plain, but I guess it's a good masculine or kid's card. I used textured red cardstock, ProvoCraft paper, a candle stamp colored with chalk and Stickles, and a "wish" stamp. Thanks for looking!
