Out of the Box



{You can always click on the images for a bigger picture}

I have unofficially dubbed Saturdays the Official Do Nothing day. During the week I am in my car every 3 hours carting kids to and from school. And that doesn't include the running of errands. So Saturdays I like to get the girls on auto-pilot and create some cards. Makes me less cranky. And we know what happens when Momma ain't happy. ;)

Today I was able to complete 6 cards for a swap that I am in on SCS. I went totally out of my box and sort of cased a card from Betsy V's blog. You can see her creation here. I changed it up a bit by using supplies that I had on hand. I guess I was going for her shabby chic look.

One word of advice: Do NOT stamp with glitter while wearing your running pants. It gets caught up in all those little holes in the mesh material. At least I'll sparkle while running. ;)
