Wow, I just looked at the clock and can't believe my morning is just about over and I still have about 12 hours of work yet to do!  So what in the heck am I doing updating my blog?  I guess just because it has been a week and I didn't want you to forget me.  Oh yes, I have been working up a storm for a month now but just haven't had time to post.  Some of my projects are now discontinued (or in dormant stage I hope), but I will be showing these to you hopefully before the month is over.

Today I am showing two birthday and graduation cards.  Both of the designs are the same but switched up the colors and/or layout.  I could make another contest out of this to see if somebody can guess all the slight differences between the two cards.  They used to do that in the People Magazine all the time, and they still might but I haven't read one in a couple of years.  I always loved playing it, as I do any game.  Anyway, I have to get back to work so here are my cards:

Birthday Card for my grandson featuring:  The Open Sea and Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Sets; Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper; and Distressing Tool Kit.

Slightly different version using some different accessories.

Graduation Card featuring: Word Play, Go Graduate (discontinued), and Something To Celebrate (Occasions Mini) Stamp Sets; Owl Punch; and Tasteful Trim Big Shot Bigz XL Die.
Same card, just a few differences.
So there you have it for today.  I have classes all weekend, but hope to update again by Monday -- or maybe sooner if I have extra time (that "CAN" happen you know).
Until next time,
"Your word, O Lord, is eternal.  . . .  Your faithfulness continues through all generations. . . . -- Psalm 119:89-90


  1. Great cards, Sandi. I have to make a couple of grad cards before we leave Sunday so I may case yours. I love the way you coordinated the ship cards-looks so nautical!!TFS

  2. Love that you used the distressing kit on a masculine card!

  3. I love the Open Sea cards. I might copy them. And I love how you gave the owl wings. Now I might have to go back and re-do my graduation cards. NOT!! There isn't time and they won't see yours so I'm safe.

  4. Love these cards! Especially the Open Sea ones. I am working tomorrow on a 3D project with it, hope it turns out as great as yours.

  5. Wonderful cards, Sandi!! I love the top card in this post. The Open Sea stamp set is great! I have the distressing set, but haven't used it yet. I need to pull it out and give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration.
