Card Day

Hi!!!!! :)

I had so many cards to choose from because I had to make a whole shwack load for the market on Saturday. It has been a crazy week. With the long weekend and My Paddy being off on Monday it's like a whole work day was lost! {Oh was!!!} Last week was my best day ever at the market and I almost sold out of everything!!!! Great news for the company - bad news for inventory. LOL But that's ok, we spent Sunday out and about at our favorite flea markets and found loads of furniture to upcycle!!! Plus, I have been sewing up a storm the last 2 days making accent pillows for our furniture and Bitchy Bags galore!!! :) I got some amazing fabric on Monday and so there are some super cute new styles and colors!

Ok today's card is a thank you card!! No particular reason just cause I needed one. My poor family and friends...they haven't been getting very many cards!!! LOL

I started with white card stock for the base and added a strip of the green polka dot see through ribbon I love so much. I used one of those mini cards from Michael's I got years ago and just cut off the back so I only had the "Thanks" side. I have done this with almost all these mini cards and it's awesome! I mounted it on bright orange card stock to make it pop. I added one white and green leather flower that I got in a vintage bag of buttons from a Church garage sale :) Loves those buttons!

That's it today...
My friend from dance is coming over today for lunch. That's all my news.


This card is for the following challenges:
~ Cooking it Up with Katie - Old, New, Favorite
~ Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
~ Kelley Kid Challenges - Anything Goes
~ The Craft Garden - Bold, Bright and Loud
