Another ORO card post

Hi all!  Have been busy and a bit lazy I never got to make Jean's cards last week.  Have had company last week and again now this week  Kristina,Jane, Kate and Finn are visiting this week..  It's fun to have family here!  Kris is my daughter-in-law, Matt's wife.  The kids are grandchildren of course but only 3 of there 5could come.  We picked them up at the airport last night late.  The plan was delayed 4 times from taking off due to severe storms  Our daughter Kristin and grand daughters Jillian and Juliet were  here the week before for just a few days.  I know you are wondering when Tom and I will be back. More  than likely will be leaving mid week next week.
Anyway here are my 2 cards I made and taught.  Will send Jean's when or if I get them.
Cut the bunny out from my cricut Create a critter2, used wiggly eyes  My other card was a similar version of a card Mary Jo or  Karen made using vellum.  I was running out of time and ideas to come out with one of my own!

Jean's cards for March 8th.

I am finally back to post Jean's card from this week class.  We just had 7 in the class this week.  Lots of people heading home.  Our class 3/22/2016 will be the last we hold this spring.  I believe Jean will be leaving shortly thereafter.  As usual her cards are nice and crisp looking and usually she makes bigger cards.  I love these!

Another Class

It's time again to send you another post.  Has time been going fast for you too?   The weather has been beautiful here.  I wonder  if the saying ''If March comes in like a lamb, it will go out like lion.'' applies to Florida too!  How did your March come in?

I am sending pictures from my 2 cards.  One was inspired by Linda Schuffert.  She sent me a very similar birthday card.  I loved it.  I used blue card stock instead of white.  I used an embossing folder, colored the raised areas with colored chalks using Q-tips.  My second card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.  Using a stamp and cutting die from the SU set  called Rose Wonder and a Die from Rose Garden Thinlets Dies.  First I made 2 similar cards which I liked but decided to it differently,  I used the fern die and cut it out times 2, then backed it with the green card stock.  I had cut several ferns out for my other cards. I used them as a inset to the cut out ferns space.  The background was made using a stencil and sponging green over the stencil.  If you like it, we will try it Hobby Lobby.
