Well, here we are on Friday! When I started this week, I myself wasn’t even sure if I could do a card a day! But check it out, I have. Yay me!! And I still have one to come tomorrow, as well as the reason I’ve done card week. It’ll be worth checking out.
When my daughter was born, I was so excited to have a girl, and do all the shopping that went along with that. (I could tell a story about when my son was born, but I probably shouldn’t. Aw, why not…..when he was born by c-section, the doctors lifted him up and said “it’s a boy”. I was so disappointed, I desperately wanted a girl I said in a not very nice tone “ugh…I knew it.” Oops!! But I can blame it on drugs, right?? Ah, but that little boy stole my heart the first time I saw him an hour later, and I quickly got over not having my girl. (Of course, when I did have my girl, I was thrilled)). Well, having a girl meant that I could buy pink, dresses and of course pink scrapbooking paper! But I made the mistake that many new scrapbookers make and bought a lot of stuff that I knew just wasn’t my style. I don’t know why I still bought it, aside from the fact that it was cute! And silly me, even several years into scrapbooking I still fell for the trap! But I was reminded that those items can easily be used on my cards, and I set to work to do so.
This card is using some remnant pieces from a My Minds Eye kit about 2 years ago. Items I’d never use on a page, but are perfect for a little girl card! And the letters, yeah, I never use those round little letters either (despite the fact that I *love* the rectangular ones). It all comes together in a fast 5 minute, fabulous stash-busting assortment of cards.
Supplies: My Minds Eye, Pink Paislee
Can’t wait to see you tomorrow, with another card, a challenge and the conclusion of why I’ve been sharing cards all week.
