Quick and Easy

I was blog visiting a friend Di, and she posted a card to Jules' Crafty Snippet Challenge. I'd not seen this challenge before and it looked very interesting. So, inspired, I ran into my craft room to play along. Thursday, while off playing with my buddy Virginia, I'd purchased a new Martha punch. I'd been drooling over this one for months and with coupon in hand....I needed (note I said need not want.... :-) this one! Along with my Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, a bit of ribbon, and a Martha butterfly....I created this card in less than 10 minutes. So, off I went to make another one....I'm thinking of all the great colors for this card. I love early morning, I'm off to make breakfast and put together cards for my September card class (photos posted yesterday).

Thanks to Di and Jules for the Saturday inspiration. Have a great weekend.
