Wednesday Cards-Green card set with ribbon

I love that the week is marching on.  I have a list again and I keep marking things off.  The weather has been another rainy week so the boys and I have been going down the basement after school so I have been getting tons done. 
1. I needed to finish up my class information for my June class.  I need to get everything ready to display in the store. 
2.I am also participating in my lss garage sale.  I have to pack up my stuff and mark it with the price.  I am glad to get rid of my odds and ends.  Plus what we sell we get store credit.  Got to love that.  I am NOT a hoarder when it comes to supplies so after I have used what I am going to use for layouts and cards I put it in the bin for the kids or the garage sale. 
3. I also have been trying to finish up a challenge that I am going to enter-I enter Imaginisce's challenge every month and always look forward to working on it but this month it is just hard for me to get it done--something always comes up.
4.  Working on my Scrap Our Stash June challenge.--Right now I still have NO idea what I am going to do for this one.  I am drawing a HUGE blank!!!
5. Finally I am trying to get some scrapping in just for me.  I have been stretched a bit with my DT commitments that I really haven't had time to work own stuff.  Teaching my class is a dream come true but I have to produce 4 projects every month on top of creating 2-3 layouts for the store.  Don't get me wrong I am not complaining -- I love it but I just wish I had 2 extra hours a day to get some stuff done.

Green Card Set
I wanted to give a little hostess gift to one of my friends, and she loves my cards so I thought I would make her this quick card set using the tone on tone colors of the hero arts papers and coordinating inks.  I also got to use their new matching ribbon.  Green is her favorite color so this is what I came up with.

cardstock-neenah solar white, hero arts
ink-hero arts
stamps-hero arts
ribbon-hero arts

I hope everyone has a great day and I will be back tomorrow with a new 2 page layout using Pink Paislee.  See ya then!

the tone on tone is such a great effect.

Hey, did anyone tell are BUSY?!?! lol! I used to work for 2 lss and I feel your pain! I never even had the energy to do my own scrapping because of scrapping for the store, teaching classes, new product idea projects, etc. I loved it but was so glad when I pulled back to just being a wife again! Green is a fav color of mine as well. Your cards are great. I am going to have to try HA papers and ribbons.
stay dry-so funny because we are the ones that get tons of rain normally and right now we are so far below average rainfall for the year it's almost a hazard!

love the cards! Sorry that things are so hectic right now for you! I hate it when I draw a DT blank. Usually I end up doing my project the night before when that Ah ha moment finally hits! good luck!

Tammy said...

Great cards! I love the two tone colors and the different sentiments. Nice gift! My (no so local) store just had their garage sale. I seriously clean out some stuff and ended up with $200 in store credit, so I know how totally worth the trouble it is. Hope you get some time for your own scrapbooking soon!

Amy said...

Oh my! That IS a lot of projects a month! I don't know how you do it!! I am just trying to survive the end of the school year and I'm not doing a very good job on THAT! Nice work!
