i have been creating a dictionary pronunciation of some of my sentiments, to mix it up and play a bit

i am smitten with all the amazing papers in this kit and add-on, the buttons, the stamps, just gorgeous!

there's also a CARDS challenge in the forum beginning today for a $5.00 store credit to the Scraptastic Scrapbooking Kits store, it's a fun one and i hope you'll inspire us!  if you've been waiting to try one of the kits, create a card and win the credit, that makes ordering a kit next month a little guilt-free...wink, wink

♥be you Jillibean style♥

Good morning!  I wanted to share a couple of cards that are being shared on the Jillibean Soup blog this week.  

On my first card, I wanted a flat/mailable card using one of the Chilled Cucumber Soup Bite Size Bit Journal cards.  I love these, they are so pretty all by themselves but wanted to use one on a card.  I have made it a New Year's Resolution, of sorts, to create flat/mailable cards as well as layered/embellished cards in my DT work this year.  There are a lot of friends who have commented that with the rising postal rates, they still want it to be affordable to send cards.

Be You Card

Danni Reid for MME

 Danni says:
April Fools Day is actually my maternal grandmother's birthday, so it's fun for us to create cards to make her smile and laugh out loud. Today I thought I would share this year's card with you.
I adhered my faux $20 bill to the inside flap, when the recipient (my grandmother) opens it up, trying to remove the $20 bill, they will see the 20 bucks (of the deer persuasion) instead......April Fools (smile)!!!
