Cards for Friday

I haven't made cards in awhile, so last night when I was watching a movie, I put a couple together.  I haven't look to see if they will fit in any challenges (where does the time go?), so it was purely for the fun of it!


Cute paper, huh?  I bet there are lots of moms out there that wish school supplies were still this inexpensive!!  I used October Afternoon Report Card paper for this card. "AEIOU" is cut from a piece of paper and the card is a matching element.  Everything else is CTMH.


I have been wanting to make a card with this stamp set for a long time.  Both the spools and the sentiment are from Unity.  I fussy cut the spools and wrapped black hemp around them.  The kraft paper is Bazzill, and the printed paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Material girl.  I punched the bottom of the kraft piece with the Fiskars threading water punch.  Oh! I just realized this one could go into the Let's Scrap August challenge using Cosmo Cricket. 

Hope you are looking forward to a great weekend.  It's State Fair time here in Minnesota.  Jerry and I will be going next week - such a fun place to go!!
