Quick Cards...

I love making quick cards.  It's easy when you have fun paper to work with.  It's so great that Close To My Heart has such wonderful papers for me.  Sometimes I'm reluctant to use it (because it's so cute!).  Go and find one of those big stacks of patterned paper from your local craft store.  Then you won't be shy about using it up (for an easy card that uses up a "lot" of paper, like this one).

I just used a Close To My Heart stamp for the sentiment, and paper I had hanging around.  Yes, I could have embellished it, but when you're in a hurry, this is perfect!!

STAMP SET:  Card Chatter - Sympathy (D1476, $17.95); STAMP PAD:  Topiary; PAPER:  Big Stack

The other card I made yesterday was this one - for a friend fell off of a ladder.  :(  Ouch!  Luckily, he's going to be ok.

I really wanted to use the Band-Aid.  And I was glad that I found a CTMH paper that would work.  It's not fancy, but it makes you laugh!!

STAMP SET:  Say It In Style (Retired);  STAMP PAD:  Honey;  PAPER:  Cocoa, Retired patterned paper from CTMH (that I can't remember the name of...); OTHER:  Waxy Flax-Colonial White & Sorbet (retired); Chocolate Flower Button (retired); Round Sponge; Band-Aid

I hope you can use some paper up today!  :)  (and make someone else smile in the process).
