Happy Birthday, friend!

It’s my friend’s birthday today (Happy Birthday, Bobbi!). So, I sat down the other day to make her a card. To get my crafting gears lubed up, my philosphy has been, quite simply: keep it simple! So I made a card with “stickers” (from a retired SU! Simply Scrappin’ kit), colored chipboard, a wild vintage button from my collection, and a simple orange flower brad on SU! Regal Rose cardstock (sorry, I could not get the color adjusted on this first photo at all). Then, I made a second card because I really wanted to see what that giant flower sticker would look like sort of hanging off the card (and, well, I had the extra card already cut out and scored…).


And then…What started out as a one-card naptime effort turned into a Nap Scrap Challenge. Basically, I challenged myself to make as many simple but attractive cards as I could during the rest of my son’s nap using only “scrap” embellishments…leftover stickers, flowers, brads, ribbon, etc. from other projects. These six cards were the outcome. Baby steps! (The cardstock for these cards were various shades of coral and rose, all textured, makers unknown.)
