Much Appreciated


Happy Saturday my friends.  I'm been having a super lazy day which has been perfect!  Erin sent me some fabulous letterpress card left overs.  I had fun upcycling them to make two cards today.  Super easy. The top card I'm entering in the CASology card challenge.  I thought these woods were perfect. The top panel is cut int two to remove the name of the company that hard these note cards printed. This card will go to a co-worker celebrating his 15th anniversary.

My second card below has the two third of the card recycled as well with the two stripes and sentiment added.  My favorite kind of preppy card.


I hope you're having a great Saturday too. We're off to take the boys to Kings Island (the amusement park by our house).  Here's hoping the rain stays away!


Bobby was nice enough to let me know that Less Is More is hosting a challenge to use a recycled item so I'm entered my cards there too. Thanks Bobby!
