Left Overs

I didn't get any cardmaking done today. Between the graduation announcements, moving projects, and a rescheduled band concert, I've been too busy for stamping therapy. There was a tornado warning the last time the band concert was scheduled, so it was cancelled that night and rescheduled for tonight.

I just realized that I had a couple of "left over" cards. They were made when I was cleaning up from a fairly productive cardmaking week a while back.
I think this was the week I was headed to GA and I knew the house was going to be shown while I was gone. I tried, but I can't just clean my desk. As I began to put things away, I'd come across something that would make a "really quick card". ... which almost never turns out to be really quick because it always leads to more scraps and then more "leftover" cards. Think "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie"
Both cards utilized a simple sketch I doodled with the flowers in mind.

This first one, was made with a Michaels $1 stamp, Martha flowers stickers and 3 sheets of Creative Imaginations paper. (background words, small stripes and large stripe)

My daughter was able to use this card to congratulate her teacher who is pregnant after couple years of trying.

This second one features the Heidi Grace paper from the Just a Note Pig. and circle punches. I didn't add a sentiment at the time. I'll just do that when a need arises.

If I get the announcements in the mail tomorrow, I'll be back in the cardmaking business. I received my SU order from my party last week, so I even have some new stuff to play with.
Be Blessed!
