Cards, Cards, Cards...

After I finished making my Embroidery Hoop Mini Album last December, My Studio Calico Marketplace kit was left with alot of papers that looked like this (lol)...
So, I got the bright idea (if I do say so myself), to take the kit to my monthly scrapbooking day with my girlfriends, and go on a card-making crusade! I had SO MUCH FUN!!! I'm not usually good at coming up with cards, but using a kit made it so much fun! And I feel like those papers were not wasted! Yeayyy!!!

Anyhoo, I ended up with eleven completed cards. Here's how they turned out...












I hope you are having an awesome week my friends. I will be back tomorrow with another update - thanks so much for visiting!

What lovely and charming cards - so different from your art journal style of art but also so you. Looking forward to more inspiration from you.

That's an awesome idea!!! I have so many "scraps" laying around in boxes.. but I'm sooo NOT a cardmaker... think I could combine that or maybe go for a "old pieces of scrap mini album" of some kind? LOVE your cards with the matching envelopes!
