Trying to clean up cards!!!

I really need to clean up my craft room!  But when I get started I start thinking I should make some cards with these papers while they are out!  So that's what I started doing!  I got two done yesterday!  Which is really good considering my day!  I am really tired lately and I had an NST (non-stress test).  I usually call them stress tests because just getting the kids all lined up with care, driving over there, waiting for the machine (which isn't usually too long, but my time is soooo limited and I have soooo much to do!) stresses ME out!  Thank goodness it is the baby taking the test and NOT ME!!  LOL!!

Anyway!  Here are the two I came up with.  I will do my best to give the card recipe but these were from scraps and cut outs I had in my plastic box of die cut outs.  I have mentioned that I save everything!  Usually the kids keeps my die cuts down doing all their crafty things.  I can't imagine a mother having more than I have of drawings, cards, artwork, ect.  

Card Base: SU  Not Quite Navy 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)

I have no idea at what size this was cut at and I will have to edit later with the cartridge it is from.
I think it is Cindy Loo!
NOPE!  It is from Songbird Cartridge!
