Cold Turkey #3

I've been getting really into fast and simple cards.  For instance, this one I literally made in less than ten minutes.  I found the quote and decided to make a card out of it, then realized I had less time before work than I initially thought (I misread the clock which tells you how early in the morning this was).  When I realized that I decided to make it a challenge for myself and I'm presently surprised with what I was able to pull together given the time limit.  Maybe sometime I'll make a video of myself doing this so you can see the papers flying.  It's really quite dramatic!  There are so many ways that this card could be spiced up but it's a tiny one and I kind of like the simplicity.  Plus it'd make an okay "boy card" and most of them won't hardly look at the front anyways if we're being honest...

(I also just noticed that I missed one Tuesday so I will be posting another tomorrow to make up for it, wish me luck!)

Cold Turkey #2

This thank you card will probably be one of many attempts to use up these large "thanks" felt letters.  They had come in a paper pumpkin kit a long time ago and I still haven't gotten around to using them all.  Unfortunately they are so big that there aren't many configurations that I can make with them on a normal sized card so the variation will have to be in the colors and the papers.  Hopefully I'll get through them and not feel totally sick of them.

Cold Turkey #1

December is just around the corner and I'm a few holiday cards short so I've decided to do like what I did in July and try to make a  card every Tuesday and Thursday this month.  I'll do some holiday ones but in general I'd like to just make a bunch of cards in general as I am also lacking thank you cards and birthday ones.  I'm starting out with this fun one that uses up a lot of my random scraps and pieces.  Hopefully I'll be able to do this to crank out the other "Cold Turkey" cards (as I'm so lovingly calling this series).  This one is fun and funky and not overly Christmas-y which is really isn't my style.
