more birthday cards...

I'm on my way out the door to run errands, but I wanted to share a couple of quick cards that I made yesterday while TRYing to clean up my scrap room. See? That's what happens...I get easily sidetracked when I'm around pretty things. :)
I noticed while giving some cards away to family over the weekend, that I didn't have as many birthday and thank-you's as I thought. So I'm going to try and focus more on those two types of cards. I had this flower leftover from a previous project/tutorial, so I thought I'd use it and not throw it away. I used Papertrey Ink's Tag Sale die #6 on the LilyBee paper with a saying from Wildflower Garden.

Now upon playing with the Tag Sale #6 die in the first card, I discovered you can do some fun things with that tab!! You can make a fun banner like I did here!
The tiny circles are just the punches that fell out when cutting this tag in each color. I used Papertrey Ink's Heart-2-Heart #3 stamp and the sentiment is from Wildflower Garden. I used Harvest Gold ink, Raspberry Fizz Patterned Paper, Pure Poppy cardstock, and Melon Berry Patterned paper.
 I have to run! Have a good day!

Danielle, I love both of your cards and glad to see that I am not the only one who gets sidetracked whilst trying to clean up my scrap space.

Danielle, you are so creative to make the banner out of those tabs - it looks GREAT! I have scraps all over...I just try to use them up instead of having to clean! :)

I so love your cards, Danielle ... you are truly an inspiration. I too get dreadfully distracted while trying to clean my PaperJungle. I actually purchased a small vacuum dedicated to my room and somehow think it's going to run itself. Much like my "self-cleaning oven" does. Bwaahh-hah-ha. Around here, the first Monday of each month is dedicated to a full clean of the craft room; that it's coming up in 4 days is already intimidating!!

Fondly,

Now that I finally have a craft room from http://roomstogrowusa.web12.hubspot.com/hobbyrooom I can go out there and make my own cards and not have to remember to buy them anymore.

Wow, I love that homemade birthday card with floral (rose) design! How I wish I can be as creative as you. Thanks for sharing and keep it up ;-)

I've created some cards, but they are Printable Birthday Cards. More like graphics - design here and there. ;-)
