More CAS Note cards: flowers...

Compliments of Pinterest...

My thought for the day.
I keep trying to make sense of it all, but perhaps there is no sense to be made of it...


Hello crafty friends!

I wish I could say there was an end in sight for these simple cards, but at the moment that is a negative. More on the way...

I am going to Scrap That in 4 short days, and I hope to complete many, many cards in one day. I have been designing one- cutting paper to make 4-6 of that design and bagging them up to be put together later. Saturday will be the "later".
What is Scrap That- you may ask? It is a Craft store that does all day cropping, scrapbooking, card-making, crafting from 8am until 11 or 12 imdnight. Usually 11pm. I never get there early because there is always something else to do on Saturday. But I will plan to arrive early this time. I am so very much looking forward to it.

Well, I traveled around the internet a little and a new challenge blog was brought to my attention. I love the blogs that allow you to Do You- and still post. That is why MIM is a big favorite of mine. I want to join in on the other challenges, but right now I just can't wrap my brain around some of them. But I am definitely going to get back to the Tuesday Trigger. I love that one.

where you can go to take the "Use it up" pledge. Go check it out.
I am "using" on these cards today. These flowers by K & Co. have been in my stash for a while and that is another reason why I decided to start these quick cards. I did not take the pledge yet because I can't promise to post monthly, but eventually I will take that pledge.

These cards are linked to the following sites:

Here they are...another installment....

The stem is embossed using Stamp It Up and the quote is also S.I.U. I think the embossing folder is a QuicKutz, but it could also be Sizzix. Not sure. After making these quick notecards, I am in love with these frame embossing folders.

Thanks for dropping by for a visit....
