Kits part deux

I spent a little time today coming up with more ideas for card kits for my OWH Birthday Bash party at the end of the month.  I grabbed some good deals at Tuesday Morning yesterday while I was visiting my family.  They had lots of colored cardstock packs on sale for $1.99 each.  The quality isn't top of the line, but it's certainly better than some of what's out there.  I was able to snag several packs of patriotic colors plus some other favorite colors.  I spent $46 for 400 sheets of solid cardstock (a mix of 8.5 by 11 and 12 by 12), 50 sheets of 12x12 patterned cardstock, and two packs of stamps.  That paper should make well over 1000 cards!  :)

I love this new stamp!  I got it at Tuesday Morning with a few other outdoorsy stamps and sentiments for $4.

This idea came by way of Julie.  Originally by Shelli Gardner, CEO of Stampin' Up. 

This MelJens digi is adorable!  My friends like to color, so we'll see how well they do with a card that depends on good coloring.
