Boxed Set of Cards

I was hoping to get some stamping time this last week, but it just didn't happen. Katie has started school and doesn't have her drivers' license quite yet. So, what does that have to do with me? I've been sitting in the parking lot at her school when she has only one class in the morning or afternoon. There just isn't time to drive all the way home and back there, so I wait. It's getting old already. I hope she can get her drivers' license SOON!
Maybe tomorrow I'll get time to stamp? But, I do have a set of cards I haven't posted yet that I can show you. I made these for one of my TOPS friends for her birthday. The girls are always handing out cards or mailing them to encourage eachother, so I figured they might like a set of handstamped cards.

I made this set using some punches, K & Co designer papers and various sentiments from "Short & Sweet". It was pretty simple and there were 5 cards and envelopes to the set. Here are a few of those:

I matched the cardstock up to the DP and found that Mellow Moss and Purely Pomegranate matched perfectly even though it was a combo I probably wouldn't have put together myself. The diecut behind the sentiment punches was from Spellbinders' Shapeabilities Pendant set - Renaissance Hearts. You've seen these here a lot lately, huh? Well, I can't help it....I love them!
I'm off to figure out dinner. The cupboards are running bare, but I am trying to stretch it out another week before major grocery shopping. That means being creative!
I think I can.... I think I can...

Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Short & Sweet
Ink~ Pomegranate
Paper~ Naturals Ivory, Pomegranate, Mellow Moss, K & Co "Madelyn" DP
