Tropical Chic

I know I used these as part of the February Card Class but I am really running out of a lot of time and thought these are nice, quick simple cards that I can use as my swaps for Onstage, which is in Auckland in a couple of weeks. Work has been quite hectic and weekends are spent with family and I have every intention of doing something on my Stampin’ Up! Business each night, but after a full day of work all I want to do is curl up in bed. I really need to get better at this time management gig because there are loads of people that manage to do it all, but this is a skillset that I am still working on.

Card 1

This first card I tried to keep it simple so it does qualify for our #simplestamping as it is just cardstock and ink.
