Card #124 - Thanksgiving #1

Wow, it has been weeks since I made a card or posted.  School has kept me very busy since it started, I took on the position of Box Tops coordinator and that can be a big job.  Just wrapped up the book fair and prior to that I was working on a Box Tops, Labels for Education and Coke Rewards project for the school.  Yesterday, I put up the new Box Tops contest at school called Everybody Counts.  This contest will require less of my time so I can get back to the important stuff like laundry, house cleaning, bible study, card making and figuring out how to use all the gadgets on our new car. 

I took a few moments yesterday (actually 90 minutes) to make a few cards. Here is the first card.  I cased the design from Stamp with Brian, which happened to be a sketch from Mojo Monday #310.  I loved his cards and I knew I had to recreate them.

Card #123, Duets Card

This card was made for a Duets Card Swap on Swap-Bot.  The card had to  have two elements that went together, like butterfly and flowers, dress and shoes, tea and cup.  You may remember the original card as card #117.  This is the completed version that went to a new home a few weeks ago.  The picture is not that great but it really turned out nice.
