Swap Round 2 - Month 4

This kit was provided by Peggy. See all the pretties she included!!!

for my first card, I really wanted to highlight the great black and white chevron paper. I made the tag with the ghost flower and quote and put it on the paper. blah! I added the border of yellow to the paper. blah! I added the flower sticker and Prima flower. blah! I left it alone. a couple hours later I came back and added the blue doily. NOW I like it!

I really wanted to play with the polka dots in this next card so kept it simple. put a little paper behind the polka dot ribbon to help highlight it. the sentiment is QK Grande Finale. 

This is one of my favorite go-to sketches from Operation Write Home (sketch #154). perfect for little leftovers. of course I had to ink them all! and it let me use another phrase sticker as well as the cool felt sunflower Peggy sent. I backed the holes with blue paper, though I guess black would be more fitting. 

and then I noticed I still had a few more squares leftover! oh, and a strip of that polka dot paper! so I did my favorite scraplift.....a thank you card Arlyn sent me years ago! this made me smile because I got too use my favorite phrase sticker from the bunch along with some brads.

these sunny cards made me smile. I hope they make you smile! and soon I hope they make a Hero smile and then his/her family!

please take a moment to go see what the other ladies have done with this cheerful kit!
