Written With Love Card

I have decided that I need to start using all of the hoarded scrapbooking/cardmaking supplies that I have collected over the last several years.  I have kind of neglected my love for making cards since Cora has been born and the last couple of weeks I have really been getting the itch to get back into it.  I am going to try to do at least one paper project a week. Last night I was searching the internet for some inspiration and I came across the Saturday Card Sketch Challenge on Two Peas.  I actually first spotted the challenge on Kimber McGray's blog and I figured that since I have an account at Two Peas, I would post my card.

My friend Karin and I went to the October Afternoon warehouse sale a few months ago and I have had the stack of goodies that I purchased sitting on the counter in my craft room just waiting to be used.  I really do love their products and I think they really fit my style of cards.  Almost all of the supplies used on this card are October Afternoon, except for the letter stickers. They are from EK Success.

I love making cards because it is so satisfying to be able to sit down and be done with a project in a short period of time. I hope to have more cards made to post soon.

  1. That's so pretty! I too have a pile of scrapbooking stuff to create some stuff with. Cards would be awesome! Thanks for the motivation :) Heather

  2. Beautiful! It's a good idea to create consistently. Soon you'll have a beautiful box of cards ready to be used any time :)

  3. Really, really cute card ... I totally hear you about hoarding supplies. A year ago I was like that too. Now I'm cool with it and am just loving making a ton of cards!

  4. That's really cool. Around Valentine's Day I made some cards using fabric. I recently saw some made using buttons. I think I may combine the two on my next card endeavor. :)
