Welcome back to our Four of a Kind challenge...we have a few changes for what used to be our monthly challenge. The first one is that we have a new member, Marybeth from Marybeth's Time for Paper, I am sure most of you know her work. Marybeth is an amazing talented card maker so please give her a warm welcome and make her feel at home here. The next change is that Renee from It's a Patchwork Life will no longer be part of your little group, she has so many other crafty obligations that she needed to step down, she will be missed. The last change for our group is that instead of the posting cards monthly we have gone to quarterly, so our next post after this one will be August.
This month I am the hostess and I had so much fun putting this kit together...I planned early to make sure I would be able to find everything I needed. I love the stamps from Paper Smooches and their Flap Happy set was the inspiration for my kit. I wanted to select colors that I rarely or never use and then I cam across Family Ties 6x6 patterned paper from Pebbles and everything else just seem to fall into place. I made 2 trips to Britex in San Francisco for the ribbon too, that is always a fun trip and one of the things I look forward to most when I am the hostess, this is my favorite place to shop for ribbon!
I was able to get 6 cards made and one little project...thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my cards! Be sure to stop by the other blogs to see what their twist was on the supplies. The links are listed at the end of my post.
This last item is my project...I had a bunch of scraps laying on my craft desk and they just all seemed to fit and it reminded me of a notepad, so I cut a butterfly and added the stamped sentiment, Just a Note and it was finished, love when this happens!
