Drop and run!

Look, here are those two cards I made earlier, that I told you about in my last (very short) post. I know, I know....just say it...FINALLY.

This first one was for a wonderful friend's amazing daughter, for her birthday.
This is such a cute Maggie. I don't own her, unfortunately. I got her in a card kit swap through the Magnolia-Licious group on Yahoo. I colored her up with my copics and used this adorable lady bug die cut (also in the card kit). I added my own ladybug button from my stash. I wrote a note to Kyra in the card and sent her birthday present off in good faith that our USPS would deliver it. Alas, they did not. The package has been lost for over a month now. Sigh...
Anyway, this second card went to my gram following a surgical procedure that kept her in the hospital for a few days. She may be in her 80's, but she's strong and stubborn, so now she's home and recovering with aplomb. Purple is her favorite color, and she likes feminine touches, flowers, and birds. This is another image that I don't own and was supplied to me in a card kit. She was so much fun to color, though, that I might have to hit Diana's store.

 I've gotten a bit closer to making more cards than just these two. I've colored some images and signed up for a crop in November. Yeah, I haven't gotten much further than that. Baby steps, right? Christmas is fast approaching, though, and I've got to make a few cards for those people that won't ever shut up if I don't. LOL. Thanks for stopping by and I'll just hope to have more to show you in the upcoming weeks.
