Happy Monday!

Is it even legal to say that? I even went to bed "early" last night and it was still hard to get up this morning! But none the less, happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. There are a lot of aspects I love about the paper crafting, great new products, etc., but I think my favorite is in the giving my creations away! I needed a quick little something of a friend...and this super quick card came together just like that! It was perfect for a little "pick me up" and I'm so happy I can do that for other people--because doing that for someone makes ME feel's a wonderful thing, isn't it?!

I had this strip of baja breeze designer paper sitting on my desk, so I grabbed a piece of Chocoalte Chip cardstock to make the card. I cut about 3/4" off the bottom of the front of the card and added the Baja Breeze scalloped edge with my trusty scallop edge punch. My paper piercing tool for little added a bit of detail in the scallops. I attached my designer paper and tied it up with a baja breeze ribbon. The sentiment is from the Best Yet hostess set(great set if you don't have it yet!). I stamped with chocolate chip ink, punched a chocolate chip scallop circle to layer it on and used some dimensionals for attaching it to my card.

I hope that you get that great sense of satisfaction when you give away your creations...and hope that you get happy mail too!:)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you make it a great one!

I feel the "magic," too when I give cards away (which is most of them). Love this sweet and simple version you shared today! Hugs,

Okay, so we were both the last ones to get the Flight of the Butterfly. I'll declare a tie. LOL!

This card is too cute. Blue and brown are again one of my fav's. I hope your friend likes it.
