Work and work

I've been busy working away at some simple cards for FOUR classes I'm teaching at the women's retreat at church this weekend. I found out yesterday that I need to plan for 50 ladies! So I've been cutting away (and so has Chase).

I just wanted to show you what I've been working on. What do you think? I had to be super conscious of how many resources I was using and my time limit!


This first card is really inspired by Kelley's card she sent in our recent swap (let us know if you want to join in on the fun, we are probably going to do another one in January).

Paper - Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly
Stamps: Merry and Bright

I'm off to keep cutting!
