Two New Cards

Inspired by the nice weather we've been having, I created a few garden related notecards. They both use recycled papers: one used the newspaper and the other, the yellow pages.

I was getting ready to recycle my old phone book, but before doing so, I scavenged some pages from it for this technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter. I chose the page that contained landscape businesses, which was appropriate for this fern stamp. I used my collage alphabet stamps to add the word garden down the side. These stamps are all from Stampin' Up.

For this next card, I used the weather forecast section of the newspaper. The stamp is one of those big foam ones intended for kids and fabric stamping, I think! Simply mounted on patterned paper, this card gets the point across -- get outside and garden!

Vicki, cute cards! The one w/the weather forecast also hit me as a great get well card with a sentiment about feeling under the weather. Great job! Thanks for sharing.
