More Quick & Easy Cards

How are all of you today?  My week is so very busy, but I thought I'd pop in with a couple of quick and easy cards I made recently.  They helped reduce my scrap pile, and stamps that needed a little lovin' got some play time.

First, a masculine thank you card:


The 'guy' cards are always my biggest challenge, but I'm happy with the way this turned out.

Next up: a couple of cards with pre-made bases by K & Co.


Both of these incorporate bits and pieces I found in my soap boxes, so putting them together was a breeze.


I dumped the contents of those soap boxes onto the table, sorted through, grabbed colors I thought might match the card bases, and started arranging.

Thanks a lot for joining me today!  Hope your day is a beautiful one.  :-)

Love your quick and easy cards, very nice and great way to use the bits and pieces. I too love to organize things, sort and separate and find containers for each category. I use the little candy cello bags to store punch and die cuts. There are times, while cleaning up my work space I just punch small shapes from the scraps left from that day and store them with the larger paper scraps by color. It make me crazy when I go to ACMoores and they have the clearance sale bins...I want to ask for a chair and a large table so I can sort them. OCD I guess. Hugs Carole

Easy looking masculine and it turned out great. One down for the guys.
Your 'soap box' cards turned out great. Love the simplicity and the pretty paper. The embellies were perfect.
