My Favorite Thing's "Recipe for Happiness" and some NBUS cards

Happy Wednesday!! I hope everyone is having a great start to the week. I have to get through two more days and then the weekend. I took a personal day on Friday and cannot wait. March is one of the longest months of the school year when you live in the Northeast. Especially when you don't get February break anymore. I am BURNED OUT!!

Today I am sharing two cards I created two weeks ago at my crop.

The first card I used My Favorite Things "Recipe for Happiness" stamp set.

I had stamped some of the images out and colored them with Prismacolor Pencils before I went to the crop.

I die cut the chef out and mounted it over a background that I had blended in using the My Favorite Things "Small Brick Wall" stencil. I used Ranger Distress Ink in "Festive Berry" and "Fired Brick" to do the blending.

I have a bunch more images to use and I cannot wait to use these on some more cards. This set is so fun. Even my daughter liked this card and she is my BIGGEST critic!!

For my second card, I used WPlus9's "Fresh Cut Container" stamp and die set.

I have had this set for A LONG time and never used it. I figured it would be a great one to bring to the crop. Who doesn't love a flower card?

I mounted the images over white card stock circle that I had popped over a layer of patterned paper pieces.

I added some Buttermilk Crystal Drops in the center of the red flowers and some Diamond Stickles for the pink flowers.

I missed Darnell's challenge but I am glad to use supplies that I never had used before. All supplies for my cards are linked below, just click on the picture. I am not an affiliate for any of these companies-just a fan!! (and a HOARDER of craft supplies!!)

I thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day!!

I sure can relate to how hard it is to say goodbye to those clothes from our kids after they've grown out of them!! Good for you! I am sure they will make a new family very grateful to have them : )
