Cards I made during our trip

Hi Everyone! It's the 5th day of our Colorado road trip and I'm having a major blast. I can't express how beautiful Colorado is especially if you drive through the mountain. We've driven more than 800 miles and stayed in 5 hotels so far. Tomorrow we'll be driving to Colorado Springs from Alamosa.

Today we visited the Great Sand Dunes. It was an awesome experience. One I'll cherish! I'll post pictures of the Great Sand Dunes tomorrow because it's already way too late and I need to go to bed soon.

Can you believe I made 4 cards this evening within two hours. I should go on more trips. I seem to make more cards on our trip than I do at home. I think I worked faster in making the cards because I've been using pre-cut, pre-stamped images or stickers to create the cards which don't require any effort. Because my supplies are limited, I can't add glitter, emboss, or anything like that. . .the cards are basically bare-bone, what you see is what you get sort of cards.

Just a simple card I slapped together. I made do with what materials I had. I stamped the "hugs to" by Studio G directly on to the designer paper. The flowers are stickers and the word "you" are die-cut alphabets.

I didn't have a stamp that said "sorry" so I used die cut alphabets instead. It's hard to create cards when you only have a limited supply of materials. You need to make do with what you have. I'm not really liking my design because the letters are too large but oh, well.

The tag is by K&Co and I had pre-stamped the flower before our trip. It really came in handy because I didn't have a "reddish" colored ink to match the color combo of this card.

The background is by DCWV "Far East" designer paper. I love this paper because it's textured. The stamped flower is by Heidi Grace.

Anyway, I'll post pictures of our adventure tomorrow! I took really great pictures of the Great Sand Dune and I want to show it off. I think you'll like it too. Goodnight, Everyone!!
