Happy Saturday, peeps! I hope you have some fun things planned today! We have some snarky weather going on -- snow forecast for this afternoon and temps in the high 60s next week! Crazy! Anyway, I recently received some lovely papers from CTMH called Chelsea Gardens..they are beautiful!! I am afraid I might hoard them! But I did "challenge" myself to use the pages that are meant for scrapping...I cut them apart, trimmed a few down and made them into some simple cards! So I thought I would share!
Yesterday was Dana's birthday, and this simple notecard with a blue butterfly called her name! I have a fun set of word stamps, so I put a bunch together and stamped them in Smoky Slate on each dotted line, then added the daughter sentiment at the bottom.
It's impossible to see here, but I added some Wink of Stella to the wings and it was quite pretty!
The next one had this gorgeous floral background but a different sentiment in the middle, so I stamped the birthday greeting from Beautiful Day in Basic Gray and added a Baja Breeze scalloped mat, then mounted it on a card of Lucky Limeade! (Using up some of those retired colors, LOL!)
Finally, an Easter card using a CTMH stamp called Easter Animals Occasions; I originally stamped this little bunny in order to practice with the Blends, and he came out so well I decided to actually use him on a card! I added a little striped scrap that was laying on my desk, a couple of Crumb Cake borders and mounted it on a white card base:
Reminds me of the little bunnies we see around our yard in the spring!!
Thanks for visiting today--be sure to come back tomorrow as I will be the hostess for the Paper Players!
I "repurposed" Cassidy's gift bag for the little girl across the road on Valentine's Day...she always wants to write on her mom's post it notes as we sit in the car waiting for the bus, so I gave her a little pad of her own, and a piece of chocolate in the bag, re-tied the bow and she thought it was the cat's pajamas!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
