I am keeping busy making fifty cards before I spend any money on consumables. Heavy weight card stock and Sook Wang are exempt. My LSS had 40% off a line today, so I managed to get 100 sheets of my favourite Bazzil heavy weight card for cutting my card bases.
Today's cards are 3 from a set of 6 I have made for a friend. Now those of you that follow me, might remember that I actually do not like purple at all! But I do like my friend, so purple it is...
This last one is a bit out of focus on the sentiment. Here is a close up so you can see it is not as bad as it looks...and shows the lashings of stickles on these cards!
This trio features some 3 dimensional flowers from the dollar store. I bought the flower packet and one with the matching butterflies, quite some time ago. I had this friend in mind when I bought them, as I knew she would like the colours. Found the paper pad at the same store and as it all seemed to match, I picked it up too. So my forgotten $3.75 dollar store stash has made 6 cards so far, and I still have butterflies and paper left to make many more.
