Cards for Saturday

My sister got a new laptop like the one I got a few weeks ago. She's bringing it down to my house so my daughter's boyfriend can clean it up and load her programs on it. Her hubby is coming with her so the guys will go play golf. I asked her what she wanted to do while they're gone. She said she'd like to make some cards. When we have our workshops at Neena's house (SU demonstrator and friend), it's too far for her to come down for the day. So, yesterday I looked around at some card blogs and last night I got to work. I cut out the supplies for this card.

I used Stampin' Up! paper and though you can't see it, the black background paper is dry embossed with polka dots (for Peggy and Vickie). :o) The stamp set is one Neena brought over and I'm so glad she did. It's a great little set and I love the saying. Isabel wanted some all occasion cards and this one could be for just about anything.
Then, with Father's Day just around the corner, I made this card. The metal is a paper Neena had. I have some silver I'll use for the cards me and Isabel will make. It's not as shiny but will still look good. The screws are brads I found at Michael's the other day. I've seen them on a bunch of cards online and they were perfect for this card. I did the "You're a Classic" on the computer because I didn't have that saying in my collection. (Hard to believe!!)

I'll try working up a few more cards tonight but simple ones, maybe with some punches. And maybe we'll have time to hit the antique mall while she's here. Usually when she come over, it's for a holiday or as a pit stop to go somewhere else. This should be a fun visit!!!
