A few days ago there was an advertising magazine in the newspaper. It had the most beautiful purple crocuses on the front. I just couldn't bear to put them in the recycle bin.
So I didn't!

|The front cover piece I saved and embossed for this card....|
And 'string saver' that I am, before assembling the card, I die cut a matching label for the inside from the dp underneath the flowers.
Die cut is Our Daily Bread; Embossing folder is Stampin' Up; Papers and sentiment stamp are Close To My Heart.

****************Yesterday I attended a card class at Colony Rec Center.
Two wonderful gals each make up 2 card kits for assembly.
First Linda's cards - She loves die cuts and embossing folders. Her machines really get a workout!
And now Joan's cards - She likes to color. It's always nice to have a couple cards for men.
This last card had to be revamped when I got home and realized I had stamped the inside sentiment upside down on the back of the front of the card. And just when you hope your adhesive will allow you to easily peel off the image, it doesn't. I managed to save both the front and inside sentiments by fussy cutting the image and remounting it on different paper.
I'm happy you stopped by today.
