I Like Saturdays :-)

Hooray for the weekend :-) Today has been exactly what a Saturday should be. Didn't have to be anywhere or do anything in particular-- just hung out at my craft table.

This first card is for yesterday's challenge at 365 Cards. We're scraplifting Sophie's style which Pam described as "clean and simple." I can do that! Haha. For my take on Sophie's card, I used her layout. I LOVE kraft paper! I almost never use it because I never have any around, but I made an impromptu trip to Archiver's last night and finally remembered to pick some up! Anyway, here's my card:


This next one is for Day 364, and we're scraplifting Vicky's style! "Soft colors and clean lines" were the themes for this challenge. I loved how Vicky created her own background for her card with stamps and ribbon. I paper pieced the background papers for my card. I also popped the flower up for some dimension.


Now I'm off to do the only thing on my schedule for today-- Babysit Hang out with my cousins :-)

**Almost forgot! A few of you asked about the dress card from Thursday's post-- The skirt is just pleated paper. I folded the paper and then trimmed it, but I was playing around with it again this afternoon and it's easier if you start with a half-circle piece of paper. A lot less paper gets wasted! I cut the bodice freehand, then finished it off with a piece of ribbon around the waist.**
