Here are two cards I made this morning before work! I fit crafting time in wherever and whenever I can and that usually means early in the morning before work!  The Yee-Haw card I made using DCWV yellow cardstock, Bazzill beige cardstock, and patterned paper with a wood grain from I got years ago from Hobby Lobby.  The Yee-Haw sentiment is from Cardz Tv with Mary and the boots are from the County Fair Cartridge.  The "rope" is braiding cord from Walmart and the wooden button is from Close To My Heart.
The Make a Wish card was made using the same cardstock as the card above.  The patterned cardstock is from Stampin' Up! and the hat image I think, is from Doodlecharms cartridge, but I could be wrong.  I will have to check on that! hahah Finally, the sentiment is from KAndrew Designs stamps.

This little treat box/tag set I made using the Art Philosophy Cartridge and coordinating stamps from Close to My Heart, and the Triple treat flower stamp and coordinating punches from Stampin' Up! I made 5 sets for a friend who is giving them to friends as going away gifts.

These two simple cards were made using the Triple treat flower stamp and coordinating punches from Stampin' Up!, elegant edges cartridge, and Lucy patterned cardstock from Close To My Heart.

"Lizzie" Anna Griffin Cards

These two cards were made using Anna Griffin's paper called Lizzie, as well as the stickers. The sentiment is from CardzTv with Mary.

Boxed Gift Card Set #14

This is a set of 5 cards I made for my co-workers as we are ending the school year and most of us will not see each other again.  Being a military wife means working somewhere for a few years and then leaving, and that is exactly what we are doing this year.  My co-workers are mostly military wives as well and most of them are moving also.  Therefore, I decided to make a little present for each of them, since they always tell me how much they enjoy my cards.  I wound up making a set of 5 cards for each of them, which means I made 12 sets!! It was a lot of work and took over 2 weeks to complete, but it was also a lot of fun and I know they will appreciate them. 
The clear boxes I put them in are from

"Don't BUG Me" Bulletin board

Thanks a melon card made using button from Joann's, punch from Stampin' Up!, ribbon from Michael's, watermelon image from Cricut cartridge "Simply Charmed" on page 46,  green check patterned paper from Martha Stewart, red solid cardstock from Recollections, and sentiment from "Garden Greetings" clear stamp set by CardzTv with Mary. Card is A2 sized.
