Lotsa New Stuff!!

Today I have a bunch of stuff to showcase!I will try to stick to the basics so my post isnt too long!
365 Cards Day # 77- Make a Note- this is an old challenge that I never completed. We were to include a "note" on the card. I used my Bind It All to create the little holes at the top and used my scissors to cut in between to make it resemble a Rolodex card.
2 Sketches 4 You- Sketch #30!
I think I am going to save this for my friend's first day of work as a "real" teacher!

365 Cards Day #129- Stitch- we were to stitch an IMAGE on our cards. I decided to use this SU image and stitch over the little faux stitched parts and the bow at the top.
Use It Challenge #17- Here are the requirements:
1- Use your newest papers. I used my new Cosmo Cricket Stack
2- There has to be a name on the card. I used my fiance's nickname
3- Use at least one button. Got three of em!
4- Use your sewing machine, if you have, or try to stitch, a tiny piece, by hand. Stitched that image!
Here it is!

365 Cards Day #130- That Tickles Me!- We were to create an amusing card. I used a $1 set to create the sentiment and an image RAK from my friend Janie to create this funny card!
Pile It On!- I didn't realize that my card yesterday didn't count for Pile it on. I thought that as long as it was a new card, it counted. Oops! So today I created this card using the necessary 3 embellishments. I used Stickles on the pink on the cake and ice cream in my image, I used 3D poster paint on the cherries, I used ribbon, and I used brads!

Have a Scrappy Day!!
