Top 5 List

Have you ever sat down to make a card and what you end up with is not anything like your original thought ?? Well, that is this card !! I had die cuts in mind and an image I had already colored but instead, I pulled out some journaling cards bought at Tuesday Morning yesterday for $1.99.. I don't presently journal or do Project Life but still seem to have an addiction to journal cards.. They are perfect for quick cards and also for making sets of cards with a particular theme. When I saw the Top 5 List card, I immediately began thinking of  MY Top 5 coffee list. Then I  pulled out a small alphabet set and the rest is history !! I had such fun stamping all of those words and was pretty darn proud of myself at how they turned out !!


Supplies :   Card base is one of 100's that I have but can't remember which company -- I chose one with pretty Fall-like flowers on it; letters for Coffee words are from a Mini wooden stamp set by Hampton Art; Wooden coffee cup is by Prima Marketing Inc.; Top 5 List & Heart journal cards are from the Indian Summer line by We R Memory Keepers .


The stamp for the back of this card is one of my new favorites !!

  9. I don't scrapbook and I have lots of those journaling cards. I've recently realized that some card makers are using those on their greeting cards. I'm going to get out my collection of cards and start using them too. They are pretty, the sentiments are great, and they'd be a fast embellishment. thanks for the reminder.
