Fun "case"

I saw this purse card somewhere and had to case it! Just can't remember where. It is a scrapbooking-type card in that it is scrapbook paper and is cut and pieced together with very minimal stamping. I also used some scrapbook embellishments like the large cabochon nail heads (not sure what to call them?) My friend got them in one of her scrapbooking club kits and kindly gave them to me. I have no problem finding use for these things! The card stays closed with self adhesive Velcro.

The next card is a very quick one I made for a thank you note. I used the color challenge from two weeks ago again, I had some leftover already cut so I put it to good use. I am bummed the red smeared on the butterfly when I put on the stickles glitter. Kind of makes it look sloppy. Now I am not sure if I should send it!

I noticed on a lot of these stamping card blogs they are writing the "recipe" for the card, that is - what color card stock, what stamps what ink what accessories and how it was made. Should I do that here? I don't know if anyone is interested or not? I personally don't need them when I make cards but some people want to be sure they use the exact same SU colored card stock. So let me know if you want me to be more specific!

Here is another sneak look at my little one having a blast in Orlando. Check out his bedroom in the hotel room we stayed in! We had a less "scenic" master bedroom but one wall was chartreuse and the living room area had one picture of Patrick on one wall! He said he wanted to live there :) I don't blame him a bit :) I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe 4th of July! Celebrate our freedom and prosperity and thank God for it!

Purse card is FAB U LOUS! Never seen that particular style before...super cute! Course your paper choices are perfect too! Well done L!

Butterfly card is very nice all the different shapes---I'm thinking I may want that cuttlebug more than a that weird or what?

Looks like Sponge Bob has made a new best friend...very cute indeed!
