Busy as a Little Bee! :-)

Hello my blogger friends! By now, you all know me... I get here...eventually! It's been HOT in Arizona; and earlier this week, we had a huge dust storm. I was lucky enough to get some great photos of that.  But today, I wanted to share several cards I made this weekend.  My husband's birthday is August 1, and I decided to make another "sailing theme" card.  I didn't want to stamp today, so many of my cards are made using designer paper, card stock, and punches. Oh, there's a few stamps here and there, but it was kind of refreshing to create without stamps! 
Here's my hubby's card.  And, I am IN LOVE with Martha Stewart's score board and envelope maker. I am really into having matching envelopes so when I can, I create one using some of the designer paper used in the card. I love this envelope; it's so cool that the ship turned out on the front of the card, like it should be. How cool is that?
Here's a closer look at the card by itself:


This card was an inspiration from Carla at http://www.carla'sscraps.com/   Take a peek at her card and although I sort of CASE'd it, I did some thing different, including the inside.  She is such a great designer and I always look forward to seeing her blog every day!  Thanks for the inspiration, Carla!  You Rock!
And here's the inside:

Well, that's about it for tonight.  Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you all have a wonderful week! Stay tuned for more creations later this week.
