ONE LAYOUT; TWO CARDS

I should be going to bed. It's past my bed time but I wanted to get something posted before I go.
And guess what it's not from the Spring Craft Kit. (Don't worry there will be more from it later probably.) being very No these are actually two cards from a very old, at least a year, kit that I was able to purchase from SU as a demonstrator. I thought I would use them in a workshop or class, which is their intended purpose. Of course since in my almost 3 years with SU I have not
been able to interest anyone in having a workshop and I've pretty much given up on offering classes I've never used the kits and they have sat in a drawer feeling very unloved I am sure.

This first one is the actual design that SU gave for the card. The exact stamp set and all. I like it and it's 'okay, but except at the holidays and my birthday I don't really have two much use for Thank You cards so I certainly don't need to make 24 of these. One type card I do seem to need a lot of lately are Get Well cards. So I kept the same basic layout design and changed the sentiment to get well. Added a few stamped and cut out Bluebirds and voila a Get Well card from the kit supplies.

I'm not sure I am too enamored with either card though so may get back to the drawing board with the precut kit pieces and see if I can come up with something a little more exciting. When I find it I will let you know.

Now it's off to bed for me. Tomorrow may be Saturday, but it will be a work day for me!

These are adorable! I hosted a crop last night and have almost everyone cancel so I feel your pain. It's so hard with gas prices and everything going up in price. Good for you for using what you've already got and what an awesome job you did! :)

Ouch! I have just started as a SU Demmonstrator and now I feel depressed - not the sort of feeling I am looking for, lol!

But keep at it, I am sure you will be inspired by the kit some more somehow - maybe by adding new elements or additional colours, gems, etc - I can almost never leave a card or tag behind without some glitter - I feel its never finished without some bling! :)
