the other card kit card

Remember THIS post and then THIS post? Well, here is the second and final card that I made with the paper and embellishments from Janel. I didn't have a very large piece of the designer paper left so I wasn't sure what to do. I decided there is nothing wrong with a simple card so I grabbed a Bella image, added the brads that I had left from the kit, then stamped the "special thanks" sentiment (from MFT). I liked it that way but wanted to use the ribbon too so I just tied it around the card with the knot above the sentiment and I was all set to go! Yay! Now I must say that I really like this card. Simple but sweet I think.

I have a couple of things to share with you today. First, raise your hand if you like to bake...I'll wait a sec for you to get your hands back to the keyboard...okay...ready? Well, Donna over at Spatulas, Corkscrews, & Suitcases is giving away the latest Martha Stewart cookie cookbook. I'm sorry but it looks so great that I just had to tell you all about it! What are you waiting for? Go check it out! But...make sure you come back here for the next link. All you swappers are going to love it!

I saw on another blog (can't remember whose now) a link to an SCS thread where you can download a Dynamic Cutting Calculator. Oookkkaaayyy...what the heck is that I was thinking. Well, it is the coolest Excel spreadsheet that helps you figure out how much of each cardstock you are going to need whilst making your cards! All you have to do is enter the measurements of each piece of cardstock, the number of that size of piece that you need to have and waalah...it will tell you how many sheets of cardstock you need to complete your project! It is SO cool! HERE is the SCS thread. Like I said before I think this will be an invaluable tool for those people that like to make cards or the like for swaps. HERE is the creator, Julie's, gallery. Now, go check out that calculator...I know you'll like it! ***Shoot...Dani is right, it is in the Demo only area. Soooo...if you would like me to send the Excel document to you please let me know!***

The weird weather in my region continues today as it is in the forecast to snow this morning. Ummm...it is April 24th! I'm am just ready to go outside without a coat on at this point! LOL!

I wish you all a Thoughtful Thursday...take a moment to do something nice for someone today.

I like the pink and green brads, and the green polka dot ribbon. A very cheery card!

First, I love the card. As usual. Janel did a great job gathering all that up for you!

Second, I will need you to type real slow and explain to me the calculator again. :)

Very cute card. Simple is sometimes the best!

SCS won't let me look at the thread(Demo's only maybe?) but it sounds like a brilliant idea!

Great card. What a way to use up the scraps. I love that stamp also.
I am also having troubles with the calculator. Oh well, such is life.
