My Time Made Easy Group Post!

Today is group post day for the team at My Time Made Easy.  While I do love the Shop Around Template, we switched gears today, and are all sharing cards made with the new stamps, papers, etc.  I decided to use the Homemade Card and Envelope file to make my card, and believe it or not, I HAND CUT this, lol.  My new crafty space doesn't allow for me to leave the Cricut set up *insert sad face here* so, sometimes I just have to be a big girl, and cut some things by hand.  This file is SUPER easy to do just that.

Assembly took the least amount of time...what took the most time?  Measuring my mat layers, lol.  Some days I'm right on, and it's super easy, and others...well....not so much.  I apologize for my pictures -- I DROPPED one of the lights for my light tent...and it didn't fare well :( .  Off to search for some new lights I guess -- it's ok, I felt like I needed brighter ones anyway -- but I didn't want to be forced to look, lol.

Here's the insert -- I decided to make a quick invite to invite a couple of the neighborhood moms over for coffee and dessert...thought it might be a cute idea to give to them...
I cut a small slit just below the roofline on the insert, and tied the ribbon through that - so it holds the card in the envelope --

I'm keeping it short and sweet, as you've got OODLES of goodies to look at on the rest of the team's blogs off you go!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Super cute and cheery colors Tracey. I love how you "tied" the insert into the envelope. That's clever - what a lovely way to offer up an invite for coffee!
