Card Kit Club

Today is our card kit reveal day!!! I have a few scrappy friends who i've met on message boards throughout the years and we take turns sending card kits to each other. It's such a great way to stay in touch with friends and be creative, too! Terri sent the kit this month and it's a beauty!!


I love it because it's very different from my usual style and it was great fun to step out of my comfort zone. Here is my first card.


The big piano stamp is just so detailed! I fussy cut it and layered it with the corrugated cardboard, mesh, and patterned paper.


My second card uses the great hot air balloon stamp Terri sent, I couldn't pass that up.


I thought it would be different to tie the twine bow behind the button, since the button is transparent.


The clouds are the perfect compliment!!


THANK YOU Terri for such a great kit! It was really fun to work with. Please check out the other girls and what they did with their kits this month!


Thanks for stopping by today!!

Mara, I love the cards! I almost cut out the piano like you and Terri did, but then I would have to find my husband's readers to do it, lol!
I like how you used the corregated board for a mat. I didn't even think of that!
I hope you are having a great trip!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
