60 WHAT?

Please scroll down for my Stamp Simply Sweet Smells of Summer blog hop, or click here.

Hi everyone!  OK, so my sister emails me a couple days ago and lets me know her office manager wants to buy a couple cards to keep on hand for general occasions.  I think, "oh wow, this is cool" and direct her to my Etsy store.  Several hours I get an email from the office manager and she asks for 60 CARDS!!  Holy smokes!  60?!?  They want 10 each of sympathy, congratulations, baby, thank you, encouragement and blank any occasion.

WHOA!  Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the "cha-ching", cause there ARE a few stamp sets I have had my eye on for awhile, but I now have a WHOLE LOTTA cards to make in the next 2 weeks.  They all need to be done before my DH's family reunion at the end of June and then my kitchen remodel.  SOOOO, quick and cute cards are on the docket for the foreseeable future!  LOL!

Here are my first batch.  First up, I used the Embellish Magazine Labels Color challenge to make this Congrats card:

Next up are a trio of cards using PTI's Dawn's Color Couture (vol. 4-6) and Fillable Frame #4 die.  I just LOVE these, it makes making cutie cards a SNAP!  The layout of these was inspired from Heather Nichols' set of cards here.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
