Card Mania!

This one has lots of photos, so sit back and scroll!

Last night I was cleaning up my desk and found lots of scraps. Hmmm, what to do with those? Just a couple of days ago, I saw a small card on Jenn's blog and I thought that it would be great to make some to have on hand for those birthday gifts that always need a quick card. So, instead of sorting and organizing, I thought I'd make a bunch of small gift-sized cards.

Using the tiny butterfly to make a quick card for a friend.

Maybe a card to go along with some perfume?

I like giving books as presents, so this would be great to go with a book (a little Scoopy inspiration on this one).

So would this one. Or, it could go with a picnic basket. I used tiny pearls and flock on this one (thanks, Krystie Lee, for the inspiration).

Easy for all occasions.

Fun birthday card.

Another tiny bird birthday card. I had to make him a teeny tiny hat.

This one is kinda my son's idea. He saw a package of googly eyes and said I needed to use some on one of the animal images. I thought it would be silly to have the squirrel get a HUGE acorn for his birthday. It made my husband chuckle!

And, finally, a simple thank you note. I took a picture with the small envelope that A Muse now carries that fits a 3"x3" card or smaller.

My last card was the last I made. I had the idea, but it didn't make much sense to have it in the 3"x3" size, so I made a 4-bar note. I'll be able to use this one as a "miss you" note to stick in my husband's luggage when he travels. I used some Krsytie Lee and JulieHRR inspiration for this one. Thanks for sticking with me through all this!
