Nilla Box Card Set & Mini album Series #6

Hi Everyone,

Ok I am having way too much fun with these cards, with this DCWV Bella Boutique/La Creme paper line, and with these Retro Sketches.  So yes I have another one to share.  Now I know I originally said there were 5 cards in this series but I had to add another one.

What a great layout for a card. So simple and easily interpreted.  Yeah I think this is going into my "go to" collection.  Super Duper Simple.  A ribbon, some butterflies, and a sentiment and a card is made.  This is a great quickie card sketch for those last minute occasions.  Mine just happens to be intended as a sympathy card but I will make another one and it is going in this set.

So there you have it, Card #6.  I may add another card and if I do I will share it but I think this will wrap up this series and bring us back to the CAS series. I have just a few more cards to share with that one as well.

So until next time..

SOC - Celebrating Lawn and Garden Month

Hi Everyone,

Among the many holidays we celebrate in May, we also celebrate Lawn and Gardens this month.  Now I have been on a mission to only use what is in my stash and if you are anything like me I am sure that you have so many flowers you could probably start your own botanical garden.  Well I am putting my flower stash to work for me with this set of cards.

On some kraft card stock I wrapped peach ribbon and some hemp cord.  Next I made a bow using the hemp cord and glued it down.  Then I glued one of the flowers from a set of 4 I found in the Michael's $1.50 bin. Finally I added some flatback pearls and stamped a sentiment and that was it.  Four beautiful note cards that would be great to give as a gift or use when you need a last minute card.

I love how these cards came out and since I have lots of different colors of these flowers guess what I'm gonna do?

So there you have four quick cards, using our stash, and celebrating a holiday all at the same time.  I hope this inspires you to take a stroll through your Botanical stash and see what you can do.

Until next time..
