Last Card Night for a Little Bit

I was lucky enough to have my sister here for our scrapnight this week.  I was still on a card kick, because it's fast, easy and I feel like I have completed something.  My sister tried her hand at some cards too--and surprised everyone with her natural scrapbooking ability.  I went with a pale green, black and white theme.  I like how the cards turned out, but it is definitely time for me to move back to scrapbook pages.  I am so behind, and I have a good stock of homemade cards for awhile.  So, be looking for some actual layouts in the near future--and if you don't see any--get on my case for slacking! 
The card to the right, is a simple black card, with dry embossed white cardstock, and a white stamped sentiment.  I liked how simply beautiful the embossing was, and didn't want to distract from that. 
This card, is also simple, with a fun printed paper on a black card.  Stamped and layered sentiment- stamp by CTMH
I <3 this star stamp, by CTMH.  I layered the star, and added brads, and tiny staples with Jim Holtz tiny stapler. I like that I can use this card for a boy or a girl. This card again has the black card base, with a white embossed white frame, and a preprinted sentiment.  Ribbon accent.
More green and black :)Some fun flower and rhinestone embellishments!

By this point, I was getting tired--and couldn't get this card "just right" to me...but, I love the saying!

I challenged myself to really concentrate on doing a "boy" card--because they are NOT my specialty.  I just can't seem to leave out the "girly" on anything in my life.  Oh well... This card features a picture hanger accent (very boyish...lol) I punched out the circle and then embossed it
These are a little out of order--but, I was dying to use my new Threading Water Border Punch--and this is what I came up with.  The flowers are cut w/ the cricut and embossed, with rhinestone centers.
Simplicity with a little bling :)

That's it-- 10 cards, 2 glasses of wine, some guacomole, a sister and friends--turned out to be a great night--even though we got 6 inches of snow while we scrapped!! :(
