A two-fer!



Well, I was able to get one card made today that accomplished two things! First, I participated in the first challenge on the new blog Stamp Something! Go check it out for yourself and stamp something. I love challenges. This challenge allowed me to make a Criss-Cross Card for the first time, which is something that I have always wanted to do, but never sat down to attempt because it always seemed a little bit more involved than I usually like. It was fun and surprisingly easy, though, since the tutorial had all of the cutting and scoring measurements right there. :) Finally, this challenge provided me with the opportunity to make my second Mother's Day card, this one for my Mom. Hope she likes it! Thanks for looking everyone. :)

Supplies: Cardstock--Bazzill Basics and Stampin' Up!, Patterned paper--Stampin' Up! (retired), Scallop pink border--Bazzill Basics Just the Edge Cardstock Strips, "Silk" Flower--Doodlebug Designs, Scallop circle punch, tab punch, flower punch, and circle punches--Stampin' Up!, Stamps and ink--Stampin' Up!, Olive Poly Twill Ribbon--Stampin' Up!, Buttons--extra from one of my DD's outfits

Super cute! I was looking at your last post too, with the bread basket. Aren't you just so excited when you do a cute little organizational thing like that? It's funny what makes me happy sometimes!
