Blogger's Challenge #72: Same but different

Sorry that I'm a day late! I finished my cards last night but WOW was I tired! That is, until I went to bed. Then, I read (my patient and more tired husband let me keep a light on!) until I finished one section of my book. I turned off the light and had one of the best sleeps in weeks!

Now, I'm ready to tackle my Saturday projects of cleaning and hopefully some stamping but I need to post my BC cards!!!



I found my inspiration on Thursday night while attending a Scentsy party. Hailey L. from my area was the consultant and while I mentioned that I was looking for inspiration for my challenge, she went to her car and brought in some cards that she had borrowed from a demo from a competing stamp company! I found this layout on one of the cards and this is what I did with it, using Stampin' Up of course!



It's a really simple layout that doesn't require too many supplies but you could jazz it up as much as you like, too!

Make sure to check out what my fellow BC members came up with for this challenge! That's my next goal!

Happy Saturday!

You're WAY too hard on yourself, because these two cards are awesome. Love the design layout and the wonderful way you made each one just a little different.

Simple is sensational, Lisa! These are both delightful cards, and if I were you I wouldn't change a single thing. You may have been busy and stressed, but your cards don't reflect that at all....

Very nice cards. The layout is nice and sometimes "simple" works way better then complicated. Love the different colors you used for each card.
