Today is just a quick share of some cards.  Usually at the beginning of the year I like to use up my stash (before the new CHA goodies come out) and make a bunch of cards for the year.  I try and make as many as I can so when a birthday or thank you card is needed I can just grab one.
I made the first card with paper from Pebbles and some Studio Calico wooden butterflies.
I made the squares behind the butterflies with some matching washi tape.

A little twine for the butterflies antenna to finish it off.

For the second card I made a flower with scalloped circles and used the negative where I punched out the circles as well.

Added a cute Hi sentiment and some twine.

The third card is also a scallop circle flower and I used up the rest of the washi tape stickers that coordinated with the Pebbles paper.

I loved these little stickers, so sweet.

And last another scallop circle flower with a button in the centre

I added some knotted twine for a border along the edge.

I love having these cards handy so that if I don't have time to create one I know I always have a few pre-made and it's a great way to use up your stash.
Thanks for stopping by.
