Oh so busy, busy, busy

I've been concentrating on my OWH cards over the weekend, and I'm really proud of myself (reaching around to pat myself on the back) 'cuz I finished nine - count 'em - nine cards, for the troops! In spite of all the interruptions, Augusta golf, Angels baseball, Lakers basketball, oh my. Now I'm exhausted. ;)
Anyhow, here are a few that I finished "for the cause."

Card #1 I broke down and used one of my favorite designer papers that I have been hoarding for-ever!! (sob, sob) and, of course, now I can't remember where I got it.The pinks match better IRL than they seem to here.For the orange card, I traced a flower pattern on orange vellum with my white gel pen. I really liked the way it turned out so I turned it into a card. What do you think? The little bird on card #3 is a Sizzlits die from my huge stash of Sizzixes (?), which I don't use often enough.  I used the Stampin' Up digital version of their Upsy Daisy stamp for this last card. Played around with it to fit in my Label 4 Nestie. I love the Stampin' Up stamps and I'm glad they make so many of them in the digital version. There's so much you can do with them!!!
I have more, but I think I'll save them for another time. Hope you all have a great week.
