it's a 2~fer

 This bright piece was one of the cards we made @ camp last week.  It was simple but i think it packs some punch! you?  Using that fun new stamp set Pennant Parade and then of course the punch that goes w/ it we could make these cute party hats in a snap! We popped the punched out star up on a dimensional, stamped 'wish big' on a scrap piece and just used our paper snips to make a cute little flag. TIP: if you have a square punch, they work great for this. just slide in your end that you want 'flagged' to a corner of the square punch and wa'la'. it's perfect!

and this is the other! we made 2 of each for a total of 6 cards to take home! I liked the simplicity of this card and the soft colors we used as well. This is using the beautiful set Strength & Hope (that is only available till August 31!) it's in the Occasions mini right now and for every set sold, SU! donates $2 to the BCRF(Breast Cancer Research Foundation)  I love the butterfly and the words are my fav.... i have the clear mount set(ONLY $13.95!!!) and that made it very easy to nicely line up these butterflies! no stamp a ma jig needed;) I tore the one edge and then just roughed it up w/ my finger nails a bit.
