Some quick cards

Hello sweet bloggers,

First of all, I must apologize for not welcoming my new followers. A very warm welcome and many thanks to all of you.

This morning I attended a talk by a visiting psychologist on "Pressured Children" at my older one's school and it proved to be very useful. It kind of made me feel good about my parenting style - like not pushing my kids for high grades!!! 

Below are some cards that I made in a jiffy with the flowers and sentiments that Karin sent me. I have used my new embossing folder from Quickcutz as well. The flourish is from Sizzix - saw it in Singapore and grabbed it for dear life. Lol.
Am going to submit this card the monthly challenge at Unstampabelles, the theme this month being embossing.





Off to get some dinner now...

Thanks for all the sweet comments on my previous cards.

Love,

Monica

Beautiful cards Monica....I like on the first card how you teamed the embossing with that panel of striped paper. Lovely butterflies on the second card. Great to see you over at Unstampabelles in our embossing challenge. Can I ask that you put a link to the challenge in this post. Thanks.

I am with you with grades at school...I only asked that my kids at least pass and if they get higher that is a bonus. They push themselves hard enough.

Hi, glad to see you! Hope you are felling much better! Now,those cards are fabulous - love how you have used that folder and your colour contrasts are yummy! I am sure your parenting style is great, but it is nice to have confirmation that you are heading in the right direction every now and then. Thanks for sharing and joining in the fun at Unstampabelles Embossing Challenge this month!
