Card #1
A cricut-less card!! I owe some credit to Stampin' Up for this one- I went to a Stampin' Up card class about 2 years ago where we made a card with this similar layout. Looking through my old stuff, this one sparked some inspiration. I decided to make two of them- they were just that easy!

I took a piece of cardstock- 8x10.5, and cut it in half hotdog style (hehe, can ya tell I teach?) Then I cut the pink strips about 1 3/4 wide, and the blue about 1 1/4 wide.

Stampin' Up sentiment "Happiness" and some clear "Friend" stamp from joann's sale sets. ( I really should keep my packaging, but I get so excited to open them and use them that I throw the wraping out right away!)

Card #2
I didn't have a punch for the tag, so I traced one from a previous card I made. I know some cartridges have tags on them too, I was just lazy and thought this would be quicker for me. The background flowers are all from the clear stamp set as well.

Feeling spring yet?! I know I'm so ready for it! Tomorrow I'm excited to hit up the craft store after work tomorrow for some new fabric- and begin a spring dress!
