Garage Sale-ing, 101.

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been MIA, I've been at my Mom & Dad's house all day for the big GARAGE SALE. My biggest challenge when having a garage sale is to not come back home with MORE STUFF than I brought to the sale, after having bought everyone else's JUNK. Today I'm proud to say I only spent....DRUMROLL.... fifty cents. That .50 cent purchase spawned these cards. My Mom knows all the great garage and junk sales...she brought me to this sweet little farm filled with flowers galore and we shopped their junk sale. I snatched up these 2 little felt birds. A QUARTER EACH! HELLO!!!

Since I've been playing with the Stampendous FUN FLOCK from Eclectic Paperie, I HAD to try to recreate these little felt guys on paper. So I took some scratch paper, drew out the bird, and used it as a template to draw the bird onto heavier, patterned cardstock. Then I covered the cardstock with glue and slapped on the fun flock.

The fun paper is by Crate; Zoom stoplight & Zoom freeway. The ribbon is from Starlitstudio (May arts). The ~Thank You~ stamp is from Stampendous.

Here are the little felt guys hanging around while we were manning the garage sale at Mama & Papa Z's house.

They were worth 50 cents for inspiration alone! What great cards! I love the stitching around the birds.
