What makes Karen grumpy

All work and no stamping is what makes me grumpy. Yesterday I said to myself if I don't stamp soon I will go insane. So I blew off off work and spent the day making cards. It was great. I made 10 cards and designed baby announcements for my niece. I won't show you all my cards , just the ones I did for challenges. So let's get started.
First I made this card for
Make it monday  which is any shade of yellow and green
and CAS Case this sketch

Most of my supplies are from Stampin' Up. The colors I chose are So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White. The stamp sets are Secret Garden and Friendly Phrases. I used a technique I seen at
 Make it Monday   Adding texture to solid stamps. I used a comb to create the texture on my flowers and leaves.
I need to get this posted before my time runs out at Make my Monday. I'll be back to show you my other 3 cards.
Happy Stamping and come right back
