J's Birthday Card

Happy Saturday morning, everyone! I'm happy to be home today, putzing around cleaning and getting ready for a birthday celebration at my house for my BFF Janine! J. and I have always been a week apart for birthdays, so we combine the 2 and celebrate them together. Tonite we're having a low calorie FIESTA that will include tacos, skinny margaritas & Hungry Girl low-calorie 8 layer dip. I'm prepping all the food today and my house smells like a big ONION! I whipped together a fun card for her this morning; I got my shipment of Crafty's new "Creative Scraps" a while ago and just haven't dug into them yet like I'd like to!

I used an image from the "Domestic Goddess" Scraps to create this card. I can't believe how cheap these are; they are retailing for $3.50! You can totally CRANK out 10-15 cards for the price of ONE! I reached for these first because they are so quick to slap a card together with. On this card I also used the little mixer image from Crafty's "Sweet Stuff" stamp set for a little round corner embellishment. I had to use the sentiment "If we are what we eat, I'm fast, easy and cheap"! You can mix and match any of the sentiments to create your own personal sassy card!

The scraps come on a double sheet folded in half, so the front of the scraps is the image above, and the back of the scraps has more images! I'm counting 14 cards out of these now! DUH!

So I'm off to finish cleaning up after THIS


He leaves big fuzzy cotton-ball dust bunnies for me to clean up. YUCKO.

Happy Saturday!
