You and Me Card Kit

A while back, (maybe 18 months or so), CTMH offered a card kit in celebration of National Scrapbooking Month. I believe that was in September 08...some correct me if I'm wrong. Anyhow, they offered this adorable card kit. Its everything you would need to create some adorable cards. Well, I bought one of those kits and its been sitting on my desk ever since. Now since I am in the card making mood, I thought I would pull out this kit and put the cards together. Only problem, is like my scrapbooking pages, I don't like alot of blank white space on my cards. So, I rifled through my scraps, and found some coordinating B&T paper to go with these cards. Otherwise, I did manage to follow the instructions, somewhat. LOL I worked on these over the weekend. Its been so windy here, that I haven't been able to get outside to photograph them. Today isn't so windy, so I was able to get them out and photographed.

I've seem on so many other blogs, where they photographed their art by placing it in a bush or a tree. I thought that was so cool and really compliments the artwork. Well, I thought I would give it a try. Only thing around here (in the desert) is my Oleander bushes out in the back of the property.

Perhaps next time I'll try placing my artwork in the Flowering Plum Tree in the front yard.

This next card I want to share with you is done with CTMH's Treasure Life and Silhouette Paper Pack. I got the inspiration from Kathi Carlson's blog(http://kathiscreativecorner.blogspot.com/) and some others. I am quite pleased how this turned out. I think I may have to make some more, just to have them on hand.
Today is laundry day. I haven't done laundry in who knows how long. So, I probably won't get to my rubber room today,
unless its to clean it. So hopefully, by Thursday, I'll have more to share.
So, until next time...
Happy Stamping!!!
Inky Hugs,

Leanne, really like what you did with this kit. Mine is still setting on the shelf to do something with. May get it out now that I have seen the beautiful work you did with yours.
