Card of the Week: Five Cards in One Week

I had a really great card making week!

I just love those times when the designs come easily, when the creative energy really flows, and when after a few hours spent crafting there are several completed projects to show. Oh, I love those times of overflowing creativity so much and lately I have had a few...resulting in a few scrapbook layouts, and these cards.

I made these five cards using one piece of patterned paper that I found in my stash (gotta love the stash). The coordinating cardstock was also on hand, as well as the various embellishments. What can I say, the card making stars aligned.

First a grid-style thank you card:
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper; Cardstock: Bazzill; Circle Punch: Fiskars; Rub-On: Pebbles Inc.; Butterfly: Studio Calico; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives

And these four birthday cards, after all you can never have too many birthday cards on hand.
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper; Cardstock: Bazzill; Circle Punch, Border Punch: Fiskars; Rub-On: Bazzill; Bird: Jillibean Soup; Flower: Prima; Button: my craft stash; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots, 3D Foam Squares

Like I said, a good week.

How has the creative energy been flowing for you?
