As work is getting busier, it’s getting harder to feel energetic and creative enough to pop into my craft room in the evening to see if I can come up with something fun to make.  Other than some 3-D Easter projects and a couple of cards that I NEEDED, I have been spending more time watching TV in the evenings and baking/cooking on the weekends. (lazing around and making food are probably NOT the best activities for the waistline)

Today, I promised myself I’d make something paper crafty before doing anything else and I realized yesterday that I’ve run out of little “way to go” cards at work – I use them when I want to write a special thank you to one of my fabulous team members when they do something above the call of duty.

Enter today’s project – so far I’ve only made two note cards – and am going to make two more but with a different layout – and matching envelopes.  I used some cute Doodlebug paper and Doodlebug pearls as well as a new die that I got this week.  I teamed the supplies with one of my Paper Smooches stamps and came up with this:

crew times two

I think they turned out pretty cute!  Here they are individually:

…and the second one was a deliberate attempt to use more masculine colours.

I got 4 card bases from one sheet of cardstock – these guys measure 4.25X2.75″ and a sheet of 6X6″ paper is just big enough to make a coordinating envelope.

I am determined to make 2 more cards but have to come up with the concept.  I’m surprised how few smaller images I have that are good for fussy cutting.  Must keep that in mind next time I’m trolling for new images.

Enjoy your Saturday!
