Ever have so many scraps of paper that you wonder how you can put them to good use and be creative at the same time? This month will be the time to learn something new. In the photo below, you will see some cards that use the same design but have different looks due to different papers, sentiments and embellishments. These cards will be going to Operation Write Home, but we will be making some of our own. All you have to do is come to the class and choose which color schemes you want to use. All the parts will be cut and ready to assemble. You will be able to choose what sentiments you want to fit your needs.

Yesterday's Mid-week Throwdown is It's a Bugs Life.
I don't have a large collection of bug stamps other than butterflies. Bugs don't rank high on things I like. But this cute little bee combined with the honeycomb embossed paper fits the bill.

While using the Rule of Odds, I created a card with three flowers and three leaves.
Even the sentiment is made up of three words. The flowers were created with the Mixed Bunch stamp set from Stampin' Up. The leaves were punched from the Blossom Builder punch also from SU. You fold the leaves in half and then run through a crimper. It gives them a fun texture.
I learned about using odd numbers years ago in art classes in high school. It really does make a difference.
