Build-a-Bear Color-Your-Own Cards

My kids attended a birthday party this afternoon and I made up a couple of these cards (in different colors) to give to the birthday girls.

I've seen this concept before -- attaching the crayons to a "Color-Your-Own Card", but I just loved Jenn Sannes' "Simple and Sincere" style and her clean layout and had to CASE her card. Click here to see her original. They are so cute and fun! And kind of addicting. I picked up several extra boxes of crayons on sales for a quarter with the back to school supplies. I'm matching them up to all the scraps of DSP I have.

I have to tell you, I FINALLY finished a project I started 5 months ago. It feels so good to get it done. I'll share more and a photo later this week, I promise. I don't want to spoil it. I'm so bad once a deadline has passed. And the deadline I set for myself was MONTHS ago and this keeps getting pushed to the back burner. Are you like that with deadlines too? I'm trying to get better, but the truth is with four kids, there's only so many hours in a day and not enough to get everything done that I would like.

On that note, I can still make it to bed before midnight, so I'm signing off! Come back again tomorrow for a new card!

Supplies: Beary Best Friends, Family Phrases, Basic Black ink, Very Vanilla cardstock, Poppy Parade cardstock, Peach Parfait cardstock, Crumb Cake cardstock, Baja Breeze cardstock, Elegant Soiree DSP, Sunny Garden DSP, Scallop Edge Punch, 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, 1/16" Hole Punch
