..since you've been gone... all that's left is a...

...tired person!  I have been crafting and working, just NOT posting.  "Bout time I fixed that!  Here are several cards for different occasions.  I find that when my mind is in a wandering mood, my cards reflect it, too.  I can't seem to grab on to a style I love or color scheme that pleases me from one day to the next.  I have decided that until the winter drabs pass on by, I will, instead, try my hand at CASE'ing and sketches.  I have rarely turned to sketches as I am just too much of a literalist.  No, really!  I will see a circle and measure it so my circle is exactly the same size.  I know you are supposed to just use a sketch as a starting point but I wind up making EXACTLY what the sketch shows.  How dull is that? 

Anyway, all of the cardstock, most of the PP and buttons and ribbon, stamps and ink are PTI.  The rest is from my stash. All of these were done on different days, different moods, different styles.  I have no favorites at the moment so you decide!  Any of them speak to you?  Any of them say "blechhh"!  It's OK, one or two are definitely not my best nor my worst.
 
  
  
  
  
  

So, anything worth noting?  I think I like the last one the most.  Maybe it's because it is the most suggestive of spring and I really, really want spring to arrive.  Well, and I really love that button bits stamp.
TTFN,
patty

Aaaah, so much loveliness in one post! I love the color you used on the trees in the first one, I never would have thought of that but it's very striking!

They're all beautiful, I'm especially fond of the last card and the red two hearts one love card.

My favorites are the red card with that fabulous scallop border. The ribbon flower is kind of 'funky' and the last card with the button bee! And I agree, we need spring with flowers and hummingbirds!

They are all so lovely. I like the last one best too but your card with the Through the Trees image done in gold is very striking. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations!
