Happy Saturday Everyone!!

The sun is shining here for the moment, hopefully it will stay.
I thought that I'd show you a little something that I made yesterday. This was a quick and simple card (thanks to my dear friend Betty). I wanted to make a thank you card for her for the wonderful pile of papers that she gave me. So if your looking Betty, close your eyes....

I just took a piece of pink cs and layered one of those wonderful papers that Betty put thru her cuttlebug - inked up the word 'thanks', added some ribbon and stuck the little window sentiment from theangelcompany™ Everyday Events set and I was done.



This card I made in a matter of minutes too! This was the weekly tutorial over at SCS. If you have not yet, check it out here. It was that wonderful Beate again. She makes the most wonderful creations, and her tutorials make them look so easy.
This is called a Gatefold card. If you are lucky enough to own a scor-pal then these cards can be made in a snap.
I used Chocolate Chip paper for the base card. I layered it with Wild Wasabi. The ovals were cut out with my coluzzle. I stamped the flower and butterfly with my TAC™ set Spring Dream and colored it in with my pencils. The smaller oval in the corner was also made with my coluzzle and I used a rub on for the word.
Other than that, I've got nothing else to show you today. I've got a couple of things to finish today then I need to work on my Mother's day cards. Can you beleive I've not started those!! I would normally have them done and ready to mail Monday..... Gotta get going.

Ok I was going to comment earlier on Nic's really nice card & some of your funny posts but my ADD took over & I was off on another blog. Now I forget how I got back here & I see a couple more of your really nice creations. I just love your blog & always get to chuckle on my visits here - Thanks

Great gatefold card! In addition to Beate you also make this look easy. I always find my challenge is to stray away from the traditional "A1" sized card:) TFS my friend!
