I got a new heart punch with my Michael's 40% off coupon... I've seen lots of cards / crafts that use little hearts and it's been in the back of my mind for a while to pick one up. These are punched from a paint chip (thank you, Home Depot!) and sewn onto a piece of cardstock, which I then inked and stuck to a card base. This one is going in Sean's lunch box tomorrow if I'm awake enough in the morning to remember to hide it in there after he packs his lunch.
I needed a congratulations card for a friend, and found a vase I had cut before in with the pack of colored card bases. I pulled out these flowers, added some green marker stems, a baker's twine bow, and voila - done.
I also needed to make a sympathy card - with the cards and flowers out, I got on a bit of a roll... Complimentary colored flowers with a simple message and line border, and voila - done!
And, while I had them out, I prepped a couple more. Now, the next time I need a card, I can add a Happy Birthday / Happy Anniversary / Congratulations or whatever, and voila - done!
