Cards, Cards and more Cards!!

I started scrapbooking gosh, 20 years ago, but just in the last 4 or 5 years I got into making cards. I love making cards, especially when you want to do a little creating but don't feel like creating an entire layout. Its the perfect kind of gift too, a homemade card. I had a boyfriend (before I met Dan) and his mother would send me these sweet homemade cards she'd make from old magazines and books. I always looked forward to her cards. Its a special kinda gift that can't be duplicated!
With all that said I have some awesome cards for you be inspired by and you will want to create some of your own!  I realize you probably have seen some of these cards before but they are such great cards seeing them twice times can't hurt right! 
All these cards have been created by my DT Diva's using my "It's Your Day" paper line!

I know this isn't a card but I LOVE it! Its simple but yet sweet and a perfect party favor!

I hope you've been inspired to create a few cards tonight! 

And.... I have one last thing to share with you all. My dear husband brought home these "readers" with lights that turn on at each end of the frame. 
Yeah... real cute huh! The best part is he got me a pair too, but I refused to wear them!! Then last night I had to do some proof reading for a project and the light in the room wasn't great so while Dan was in brushing his teeth I pulled the "headlight readers" out to give them a try... well I have to confess they are GREAT! Does that make me old now or just a nerd?? Then Dan walked out of the bathroom and went banana's because I was wearing them! He said things like "I told you they were great, didn't I!" and "I'm the man, huh!"!! So here I am in the BEST reading glasses EVER!! 

Have a great rest of the week! -Nikki
