It's time again to get my first of two posts in for the two week Show Me Thursday  Post on the Sassy Cheryl Blog. Just come join the rest of us nosey parkers, post what you've got going on for a chance to win a Sassy Cheryl image and to have some fun nosing around and finding out what others have going on in their lives.

For the past week besides the wallpaper removal(which one room is done by the way), I've been working on OWH cards for the troops to write home to their family. So here are the cards I've made in this last week.

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. The cards were made using cardstock and my Cameo.

This is another card that was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. I created the flower with my Silhouette Cameo. The papers are from a digital paper kit called

This card was also inspired from a card I saw on Pinterest, but I made it my own changing the round buttons to hearts and adding the Pot of gold along with  the cloud sentiment.

This next card was created using papers and elements from a digital paper kit called Just Beachy from Just So Scrappy 2. I used the trace function to trace the banners and then print and cut them. 

I saw this card on the Papercraft Planet site on Pinterest. I simply filled several cat tail files from the Silhouette store with color and printed it and the sentiment on card stock. After printing and cutting, I used the wax water color crayons for the shading.

I have a great nephew that loves Thomas(most little boys do), so I found a kit from ReviDevi called Choo Choo Train Parade. I took the kit, put the train tracks to create a frame, then added the train, and added Coleman's name. Print and cut them with my Cameo, and created these great cards for Coleman. Hitting two and going to Pre-school this fall, he'll be attending birthday party. These cards will be just the thing to put in the presents he gives.

I took the sketch from last week's Tuesday Morning Sketches and the Choo Choo Train parade to create this card. The papers are from the digital kit Choo Choo from Crazy 4 Monograms at Just So Scrappy 2's store. I created the train and then printed and cut it in one piece. I'm telling you, I love that Cameo.

Throw in cleaning the refrigerator, and that's what I've been doing this week.
