Card Tin




I decided to make a card tin and coordinating cards for my MIL for one of her Birthday gifts. She has 6 boys, so her life has been pretty much baseball, football, wrestling, etc. I have always tried to do *girly* things for her and this year is no exception. I chose a coordinating line of pattern paper by Treehouse Memories; this collection is Library. I used the same collection for the cards as well. I decided to upload my favorite card from the collection. This card features a lot of styled silver hodgepodge hardware and could easily be adapted to use SU! designer series paper. I have dropped my entire container of styled silver hodgepodge hardware TWICE!!! You think I would learn!!! So....since picking up every piece TWICE...I realized that I am hoarding it and there is A LOT of each piece. I have loved using it. Maybe next time I spill it there won't be as much to pick up! LOL! Thanks for fluttering by!




P.S. Starting tomorrow if time permits, I will be starting a new *series* on my blog. Stay tuned to find out more!!!!

Love your tin and card, Kelly! This sentiment stamp is my all time favorite from SU! this year, and I love it in black Ü

LOL on your HPH dropsies...I've also done that but not for quite some time...oops, hope I didn't just jinx myself!

BTW, still haven't mailed your TY, ugh!
