Happy Saturday!

Most years, I spend Labor Day weekend...ripping apart something in my house, and remodeling it. Since I've done too much of that lately, my goal is to put together some cards for Operation Write Home.

So, I sliced up a bunch of paper, and went looking for a few challenges to inspire me. :)

The first one I've found is at Mark's Finest Paper, challenge use 5 of something. I decided to use 5 rhinestones on a simple style birthday card:

Supplies used:

Random cardstock
American Crafts pearl cardstock for the butterfly
Black Market Paper Society paper - I miss them...
Unity's August kit of the month for the fabulous Wish sentiment
Twinkling H2O's for the candle
random hotfix rhinestones

The second card I have to share came from a Paper Crafts sketch, from the Go To Sketches book. It's pretty unusual for me to use a non-Unity stamp lately. But I fell in love with this goofy 'lil pup by Stamps by Judith.

Supplies used:

Random scraps from my scrap bin
random cardstock
copic markers
MM flower brad

Thanks for looking! :)
