A Variety of cards

Well once again I am way behind in posting cards on my blog, so you catch up a bit I thought I would do a group post of several cards I have made recently.
Here are a couple of "Thinking of You" cards
I made the background paper on this card using some spray inks I picked up at Michaels and watercolor paper.  I really love playing around and making background papers, not like I don't have a room full of paper, LOL it is just fun to see what kind of patterns turn out. The center label I cut and wrote using my Explore machine, I love this option! The butterfly is a My Mind's Eye brad.
I love this lime green and purple combination. The hummingbird image are rub-ons that bought a very lone time ago.  You can't really see it in the picture but they are sparkly.
I wanted to cut something with small line with my Explore to see how it cut so I cut this birdcage, this one cut fine but it turns out my Explore does have a problem and it is being replaced. :(.  I have really enjoyed it for the month I had and I can't wait to get one that really cuts great like it should.  The Thank you is written using my Explore.
I will add a sentiment when I decide how to use this card.  It has lots of sparkle on it.  The paper is from the DCWV Sweet Stack.

Well thanks for taking the time to stop by.  I will try and post some more cards over the next few days.

Awesome cards Donna. I love how you made the bg paper on the first one. And that hummingbird on the second is great. The birdcage is wonderful. Love the embossing and pattern paper. And the fruit card is so very pretty!! :)
