Whoops! I told a lie! I said that they next post would be a box BUT yesterday was May Day and I felt that I really needed to avoid working and running errands to make cards for all of my neighbors. Aren’t they cute little note cards? It took no time to whip up a batch (what’s up with me and constant food references?!). I used the Gingham Garden DSP and stamped with the Chalk Talk Set. As you can see I used pink or rather Melon Mambo for my ink color (OF COURSE!) 😉
I used the Fancy Flower punch and I had some Midnight Muse little butterflies stashed in a baggie from a recent project and I just threw them on for a little Je ne sais quoi.
I went to the Dollar Tree for some Jars and then bought a bouquet of flowers and split them up. The cute cards accompanied the flowers and my daughter delivered them to all the neighbors. I hope your spring is off to a good start! Ours sure is, baby girl will be here in 5 weeks. It’s countdown time!!
Ever since school started my crafting time has dwindled. NOOOOOO!!! I have got to get back on track for my sanity’s sake! Luckily my amazing upline, Christina Crawford, came to the rescue with a great idea. She mailed everyone in our swap group a blank card made with the Thinlits Card Die and challenged us all to come up with something.
This is what I came up with, using melon mambo (naturally!) and the Gingham Garden DSP. I used the Really Good Greetings stamp set and topped it off with the Melon Mambo Scalloped Ribbon. I was sad when Stampin’ Up retired it because it was my favorite and naturally I am very greedy with it! The friend who gets this card can consider themselves LOVED! 😉

One of my very good friends got a job that she really wanted. She no longer has to deal with Washington D.C. traffic (which is a total nightmare!). I was really happy for her and I wanted to let her know it and voila!
For this card I used Crumb Cake card stock for the base and matting of the sentiment. The DSP, Gingham Garden, is perfectly matched up with the Strawberry Slush card stock. This gem is topped off with a white button and Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon along with pearl jewels. Sassy Salutations is the stamp I chose for my sassy friend. ❤
