365 Cards #72 and #74

I was at a loss trying to do todays challenge so I decided to work on catching up. I completed challenges #72 and #74.
#72: Musical Monday- Incorporate Music Notes. I used my Cuttle Bug to cut out the music notes and used some card candy that I recieved in a swap last year.

#74: Handwritten Sentiment- I hand wrote in the little word bubble.

I also made this little owl card also using the card candy from last year.

I wanted to introduce my idea. I took a basket from the Dollar Tree and I started throwing in little items that I have recieved as RAKs or that I find in my cabinet and think that they need to be used soon. I call this my "Use This Now" basket!

great idea Alicia. I did that too with a tiny basket but I think your basket is super cute. I might have to check my dollar store (hmmm...some of those goodies look familiar ;))
