2 Minutes cards...and a Wee challenge!

That is all I had tonight! 2 minutes! I had a super fun day today with friends! The best friends a girl could ask for! ;) Ending the day with a great dinner at church!  After a rough week and some sad things happening, it was the best end to the week! (I appreciate you, you know that!!)

So back to my 2 minutes...Here is what I came up with! Super simple and kinda fun!  This is actually a CASE to own of my own cards!  (When I can find that link, I will share it!)  I love this layout with the little rose buds!  So I had to give it a shot with the sheet music!  After stamping and punching out the squares, I ran it through a CB folder for a little added dimension!

I love this Sheet Music stamp! I came from a very musical family...it skipped me completely...except for singing in the car...so this set is for sure a fast favorite!

And one more card that took just a couple minutes! One layer cards are so fun!  This one also qualifies for the Wee Memories Challenge...

I got those super cute little pins today at our LSS in Wichita! So fun! I have never used those before so I had to give them a shot today!

This card also works with the Wee Memories Challenge!  I love ribbon so this is the perfect challenge for me!  :)



And that is it! Gotta keep going here so I am keeping this short and sweet! Hope your weekend is going great!!

  5. The ribbon in the second card makes me want to touch my computer screen and rub it ....... I LOVE RIBBON .. OMGosh I love that ribbon ...... should I assume that is from May Arts since you have it on your blog ....... so thick and yummy!!!!! Love both cards ...... I was not allowed to sing in the car ...... my brothers would tell me to zip it. When I like to be funny ..... you know that is not often :) and someone is singing I ask who sings that song and when they answer I say let's keep it that way!! So I am sorry you had a crappy week ..... if there is anything I can do always let me know!!! But happy that it ended on a high note with friends!!! xoxox

  12. Hi Laurie, the minute your blog came up and I scrolled down to the first card I was totally blown away!!! Your cards are magnificent! The workmanship is flawless and the overall images are so very beautiful! You have some very fun cards also with the elephants on them. They are all very, very nice work!
