Double quick Wednesday...

I received a request for super simple, non-holiday cards, so I whipped up these two :)


This friendship card uses the chipboard back from a notepad as the base... recycling at it's finest :)


Stamps:  Friendship Strips (now 25% off!), Swirled Spring Life (Hostess Level A)
Paper:  chipboard, brown cardstock
Ink:  Burnt Umber Palette, Vintage Cream (PTI)
Other:  MS border punch, chocolate ribbon


The yummilicious ribbon?  Another clearance bin find at a LSS.  AND don't you just LOVE my new border punch?!  I have a love/hate relationship with Martha... I either love her products, or totally NOT love them... no in-between.



And how is this for a card quickie?!  Seriously, it took longer for the ink to dry than it did to make the whole card.


Stamps:  Toot My Horn
Other:  Scor-bug, misc. ribbon

What do you think?

Excellent use of the swirled spring life on your friendship card. You find the coolest boarder punches too!

Okay, girlfriend, you've gotten me in trouble again! Now I have to have a new punch and the stamps in the last card! OOOOhhh....can't you imagine that punch turned upside down as a wrought iron fence look on a SPOOKY card??? Great work, my friend!

WOW girly!! This is gorgeous!! I love the border punch. I have to tell you for years I boycotted Martha's stuff. I didn't like how she came in with her big name and tried to get in on our hobby. She probably doesn't even scrapbook. Well then she came out with the border punches, and I had to concede.
