Swine Flu

Hi Everyone!
Ok, maybe swine flu is a thing of the past but allergies still rule!!
This week's challenge at The Kraft Journal is:
Use Your Stash
No problemo mi amigo!
Ive got lots of stash and I do like to use up some leftover bits every now and then, too. So Ive been saving my remaining bits of cardstock from  81/2 x11 sheets of cardstock that I make a 51/2 x51/2 cards from (which leaves a length of 3x11). I just score those 3x11s in half and make small notelets like this one.

Colors: Prismacolors and Lyras
Lunch Bag Kraft (for coloring)
Paper: MME "Fine and Dandy Girl" and "Market Street"
Punch: Martha Stewart
Dies: Spellbinders
White Gel Pen (for faux stitching)
button (from stash)

So I hope that inspired you a little bit today, I'll be looking out for your creations this week and hope you can play along with us at The Kraft Journal!

what a fun card! I have so many of those same size strips and always seem to end up using them for mat bits. what a clever idea to use them for little cards with the fun size main image! :)
I love this image from Mo, too. I remember buying it just as soon as it came out.
