World Card Making Day!

Since yesterday was World Card Making Day...I played along and limited myself to only using scraps from kits that I had laying around my desk. I could make another 2o cards with all of my extra bits and pieces...seriously! (I made these in lieu of cleaning the bathrooms. LOL. It was an easy choice!) Here is what I finished...
Mom...when you get this someday...disregard the fact that you saw it here first okay??
This one is for a sweet friend who is due any day with her first baby...

There are about 4 different shades of green on this one...but somehow it all works for me! The paper is from Oct's kit "Arbor Drive" and also Aug's kit "Happy Go Lucky!"

This one is using mostly August's "Happy Go Lucky" kit except the Sassafras Lass stitched blossoms which I have been hoarding since our May of 2008 kit "The Thicket." Am I the only one who loves something SO much they can hardly bring themselves to use it up? LOL
Those flowers make me swoon. Seriously!

A birthday card...very simple using pink gems and the felt trees from "Arbor Drive."
I like how you can really see the texture and "fuzziness" in this close up shot. I trimmed the pink tree to the size I wanted for some variety.
One of my favorites. A layered Sass. Lass flower with fabric I cut into the shape of a flower with a Heidi Swapp chipboard clock on top. The orange ribbon and patterned paper are in this month's kit "Arbor Drive."

Now to get to cleaning those bathrooms! Hope you are having a great weekend! I'll be back tomorrow with more from my gallery this month!

extra cute! And no-- you are not the only one who hoards her favorite things...let me just say that I am just now opening up my hall pass to acutally use it {I've opened it several times to just admire it- but could not stand to use it up)-LOL!

I completely know what you mean about hoarding the supplies. I tend to do that with all of my favorite things. Cute cards! Thanks for sharing....:)
