I hope you enjoyed a nice weekend. Ours was a long one for the Memorial Day celebration. We had outstanding weather that got me on the golf course as well as the lake - woo hoo!!
Among the fun we had this weekend was on Sunday when some of my peeps and I got together to play with paper. We sometimes have a planned cardmaking project but this time we just sort of each worked on our own thing.
I wanted to get some cards made up to move me along in my personal challenge to create 100 cards in 100 days. I am offering BLOG CANDY to add some fun for my friends and followers who leave "Cheer me on comments" : ) (Which, by the way I GREATLY! appreciate and enjoy!! See my blog Candy deets HERE.
I used my "Button Boutique" stamp set and coordinating dies from Papertrey Ink. I just love this set and plan to make many more cards using it. I love how the button cards can look so authentic and "old".
I had intended to make each of these three cards very different from one another but my third card refused to come together so I quickly just (almost) duplicated my first one : ) I couldn't bear to only get two cards done in one whole day of paper crafting! LOL
The sentiment on my first and last card is from Close To My Heart. I don't own this set - but was using my friends so I forgot to jot down the name of it. Maybe she will leave a comment and tell us the name : ) Hear that, Theresa? I thought it was such a sweet sentiment for a "vintage" card. The inside reads:
but not your age
These cards represent a half way mark for me as I have now completed 50 of my 100 cards!! woo hoo. And, I did not plan it this way, today marks exactly 50 days left to go before the drawing for my BLOG CANDY on July 16th : )
I cannot thank you all enough for all the encouraging and fun comments you've left. I am having so much fun with this challenge made so much better by YOU!
Thank you so much for looking. Have a great day!
