Quick and Easy Cards done with "Farm Fresh" Creative Scraps

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Amazing how fast it goes by huh? It was   Dans weekend off so, we did some catching up on things around here. I did finished up some cards I've been working on also. So thats what I thought I'd share today:)

One of my favorite things to do is create quick and easy cards that are cute! Crafty Secrets images make that a piece of cake.  They do the work for you:)  Picking papers and adding fun embellishments, is just the icing on that cake.  I thought I'd share this grouping of goodies.. all done with "Farm Fresh" Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets.  All the patterned papers used are from the new "Creating with Vintage Images CD" .. also from Crafty Secrets.

A number of the die cut shapes, wood buttons, and lace are available in My Etsy shop here. ( oh.. also the little (vintage)  metal spoon embellishments:)    I wish I had some of those cute little "diggers" I used below..but no.  I looked and they are made by Scrap FX Embellishments. 

I do have the card shape used in the above card..and the spoon used below available.

Okay.. you know me.. I love a great deal.  I scan the clearance isle at HL constantly.
You can see from the price on the back of this little towel hook.. it was a pretty good deal.

I also have the wood buttons, lace and this card shape available in my Etsy.

I wish I could say I make this jam...but I didn't.  I purchased it from Kate's sister-in-law, who was selling them to raise money for cancer awareness.  ( it was fun dressing up the jar though) lol

I am such a huge fan of large scallops!  These really make it easy because they are on the edge of one of the papers on the CD. ( no cutting)

After I had the "group setting" photo taken, I realized I hadn't brought this jar out yet.  You know what this is??  A olive  jar. (shhhhhh).   It thrills me to make something pretty out of something that would have ended up in the trash.  yay

I didn't begin to use all the images ... I had alot of my sheet uncut..but it was time to start dinner.. so I called it quits. lol

* the brown edge is cut from one of the die cut pieces I have offered also.

As you can see below... there are lots and lots to choose from.

Once again... handmade cards mean so much.. but they don't always have to be time consuming.  Just have fun! Create... then share the love :)

Simple cards rock!

Have a great day!

You are a girl after my own heart! Love the towel rack and how you used part of your die cut for a border on your card!
