You are the Best Card

World Cardmaking Day 2011

Happy World Card Making Day everyone! Here are three cards and one bitty notecard set that I created using bits from my scrap stash. Yeah, I’m making cards Susan Style! Okay, not entirely; I have a hard time duplicating a design on multiple cards. Gotta change it up, you know. I also reached into my stash and pulled out stamps from Lawn Fawn, Papertrey Ink, and Paper Smooches for these happy projects.
