Same Ingredients...Different Layout

Back-to-back posts!!! I know right (as my kids would say).

But did you see yesterday's post of the card I did for a swap on Splitcoast? Well at the time that I was doing all the cutting for this swap I couldn't remember how many I needed and my laptop was in the family room and I was upstairs in my craft room. So being the lazy person that I am, I decided to guess. Well you guessed it---I guessed wrong. I only needed 4 cards for this swap and I cut enough for 6 cards.

So as I was putting away all my materials that I used, (I am really trying to get better at that-got a LONG way to go though) I figured I would use the items that were already cut up anyway. And I came up witht hese 2 layouts. Hence the title of this post.

Now I have 2 more cards for my stash.

A Swap...

I recently did a swap, wait I actually did TWO swaps this month. This is one of my cards I did for a swap on Splitcoaststampers. The swap was anyhting that had to do with "shoes". Now how could I pass up a swap about shoes? I purchased this stamp from a vendor at a craft show that passed through Chicago a couple of months ago. My new favorite thing lately has been embossing folders. I absolutely love them! They give so much character to cards. Now off to google-land to find some more, at a cheap price of course.

I am so pathetic! Yes I know...I have been missing in action for months.

School has really been keeping me busy (going back to complete my Bachelors) and with baseball with my oldest son this summer, that has really soaked up a lot of my time. But with fall just around the corner I can see my wheels starting to slow down just a bit. I'm starting to want to stay in on the weekends, it is getting a little chilly out there. So now I will be able to do more crafting. I'm still cleaning and re-organizing my craft room. I have done a few cards in the past couple of months and right now I am working on a diaper cake for my nephew and his fiance's baby shower.

So sit back, relax, and be patient with me. I promise I'll be back soon.

By the is a blog that I have been stalking for months. This lady is absolutely CREATIVE, but in a "sweet" way. Just go there, you'll know what I mean. This is one you will definitely put in your google reader.
