I've been making presents.

These are for friends of mine who are attending my church's women's conference with me.  They all say, "Extraordinary Woman" and their names.

I've made cards, too.  Some of them are originals, and some were nearly direct copies of designs I've seen elsewhere.  The butterfly card above, for instance, was an almost direct copy from a magazine, but I changed the colors, some of the decorations, and added the extra white dots.  The one to the right is mine.

Above, the one to the left is mine.  (I LOVE it.)  The one to the right is another almost direct copy, this time from a Stampin' Up idea book, but I changed the colors and a few other things.

The two cards above started off with ideas from a Stampin' Up book, but they ended up being more loose inspirations.  I changed them quite a bit.

The blue butterfly one up higher and these next three cards are all still in my stash at home.  The Happy Birthday card above is another loosely inspired card from a Stampin' Up book, but I ended up changing quite a lot.

The one above is another lift from a Stampin' Up book, but with a lot of changes.  I believe I changed the orientation and added a bow and whatnot.  Anyway, I like this one a lot, too.

Below are all of the gift bags I made for my friends' presents.  They are gorgeous!  I'm very happy with how they turned out!  They mostly used the Jubilee collection from K&Company.  I had a lot of fun throwing these together.  The base bags were all cut from the Jubilee cardstock on my Cricut.

I've been so busy, but it's been a happy busy!  I'm really excited about my conference, and about seeing the faces of my friends when they get their presents!  ^_^
