Use Your Stuff (Teacher's Thank You Cards)

Good (crazy early) Morning! 

I'm a day late on the Use Your Stuff challenge! Yikes! Sometimes time just gets away from me ;) Better late than never though eh?! 

Anyhooooo...this week's challenge is to use office supplies. I had this great idea to use a white out roller on my project....I think it might work better on a layout, where you make it and put it into a page protector and it stays there safe and sound...not so great on a card that's going to be opened and closed a bunch of times...

I made two cards. The one on the right has the white out roller on it, and for the one on the left I used some gold washi instead. I like the washi better. 

Cards are definitely NOT my forte...

I found my inspiration on Pinterest (feel free to follow me). I had pinned a fabulous card by Lisa Spangler, and then I found later that the person I had pinned it from had just pinned her blog and not the actual post that the card was on!! GRRRR!! So then I had to find the post...but I did! And it didn't take too long...so I guess they're forgiven! lol If you click on her name you'll be able to see the card...it looks nothing like mine...her's is awesome ;)~

The one one the right has the white out roller...the one on the left has the washi...I prefer the one with washi :)

I really liked the fold of this card...simple, but it looks kinda fun and funky :)

And this is what was left in my cardmaking wake...yikes!! Clean up in the morning for sure! Right now, I'm off to bed! It's already 1:30am!! ooops!! I knew I was going to be up late...didn't think it would quite be this late...but oh well ;)

Please join us over at Use Your Stuff and get out those office supplies!!
