New year, new challenges! I was excited to see that the newest Lawnscaping (#25) Challenge is a Birthday theme!
This weekend I made a list of lists of Thank you Cards that I need to make/write. It’s a long list, believe me. I got about 7 of those done, and have about 8 to go. While I was making Thank You cards, I was inspired to make a few birthday cards as well.
This is my submission:
I like patchwork style cards. I used Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Burbs, Critters in the Forest, Hats Off to You, Admit One, and Say Cheese Too and some fun Bakers Twine from The Twinery :). I thought it’d be a good “kid” birthday card. Fun.
Honestly, I was desperately trying to finish up an 8x8 pad of October Afternoon’s “Seaside”. I don’t know why (I was so “desperate” about it). Seems like I’ve made SO many things from this little 8x8 deck of paper. I had tons of scraps saved. Because those are REALLY good for stamping/paper piecing! I just really felt the need to get rid of some scraps. I made 2 birthday cards, 2 Thank You Cards, and 12 Corner Bookmarks - and still had scraps left over. It was like Jesus feeding the 5,000 I tell ya. The scraps seemed to keep appearing. I thought I’d never finish that pad. I finally decided that I’d been a good steward long enough and tossed the few remaining scraps. THEN, I went to organize the drawer that I keep my mini decks of paper in... yea, I still have 8 or 9 whole pieces of this paper. Did it multiply while I wasn’t looking? Weird.
Anyway. Also here is one of the Thank You cards I made using the same paper pad along with one of the Lawn Fawn freebie stamps - LOVE THOSE!
Ok, that whole paragraph was weird, but I’m leaving it in there ;). Hope you have a good Wednesday.
