The Rest of October Sheetload





I was in the mood to just make some cards and not make them complicated! I haven't made any in a week due to company and I have some birthday cards for SCS I need to send out so I took what was left of the sheetload pre-cut papers and made these this morning. Nothing fancy, I did try to vary them as much as possible though. They look kind of plain, I have gotten into using many layers and matting everything so when I see these I think they aren't very good but I am trying to like them!

I have to giggle, this is the 5th and for most of my life I thought it was my oldest sister's birthday. I didn't find out until about 10 years ago it is the 8th. You see she is almost 17 years older than I am and when I was a little kid we moved to a different state, she stayed as she was married and had her own kids by then so we never were together for birthdays. At least my card was always on time! Now I got to get hers in the mail or it will be late this year.

That is funny about your sister! I agree at least it was on time. I wonder what she thought if you sent a belated birthday card that made it by the 8th. I can see a person having a perplexed look and thinking "but it's not late?!
