Hi everyone,
A quick post tonight...I created two cards for different challenges. The first one is for Virginia’s View Challenge, and we have been asked to create a tag or scrapling (the leftover cardstock from an A2 card base which was cut down to become a square card). Here is my 'Scrapling':

Previously, I die cut this Poppy die in a few different colors, so I dug them out of my ‘save for later basket’, and inlaid the pieces into my scrapling. I also used a pink ‘thanks’ die cut from a project that went south a few weeks ago. Virginia also asked us to recycle a household item, but I’m afraid I don’t have anything to fulfill that criteria.


My second card is for this week’s challenge at Muse. Therese Calvird created a really cute card with die cut words in a repeat pattern, so I thought it would be a fun idea for my hubby’s Father’s Day card.

I also inlaid the die cut sentiments on this card, and kept the design very simple...a few veneer stars and a sentiment from Hero Arts, and I was all set. My hubby is a simple guy, so it’s perfect for him.

I just wanted to let everyone know that tomorrow, I will be making a very big announcement here, and also have a small surprise for everyone. So, please stop by for the festivities!

I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by ~ Barb
