Rainbow Week - "Hello"

Sometimes being lazy is an asset!  I made these cards two weeks ago, but hadn't put them on the blog........then I get an blog email from Lucy Abrams @ Lucy's Cards that she's having Rainbow Week on her blog!   And these cards ended up working kinda perfectly with her challenge (if you forget red and purple are in the rainbow and pink and black aren't!!)



So, I've had that letter paper in my 'hoard' for quite a while.  I took it out two weeks ago and decided I'd make some cards with it. Holy Cow - did I struggle!!!!!!!  These cards took me OVER two hours!!!  How sad! I just had NO mojo and I really was ready to dump everything in the garbage. 

But finally.....I came up with this and now I have a stack of these on my counter!   The birdy & sentiment are from Hero Arts.  Not sure who makes the paper - but probably DCWV.

Come join Lucy's challenge for Rainbow week!

Thanks for your visit!

These are adorable cards, love that paper I can see why you didn't want to use it. Love the layout, if you lost your mojo, your fingers must be doing the talking because these cards came out wonderful :) Good luck with the storm, I am saying prayers nothing major happens with CT and my son in RI.

Well, these turned out just adorable, Maria! Such a fun design and I love all the different color ways. This would make such a fantastic card set for a gift. Love that little birdie. :)

Glad you got them finished because they're super!! I can't even pick one I like more than the others since they're all just wonderful.

I'll be thinking of you this weekend and hopefully you'll be safe! Batten down the hatches!

Love your cards, Maria!! It takes me hours to just make 1 card sometimes! You did an awesome job!!

Can't believe you created such fabulous-ness in just 2 hours! I've been known to work on one card for most of the day, and still have to come back in the morning and fiddle with it. My hat's off to you for coming up with this great design, it's perfect with the alpha paper.

These are great! I love the letter paper. What a wonderful/useful set of note cards to have on hand.

Good luck weathering the coming storm. I'll be thinking of you. Stay safe!

My 'backlog' of projects I haven't blogged yet...I should totally go through them & match them up to challenges! There's easily 50-60 cards in there...hmm... :)
I love how these make such a cohesive set, without being identical. The letter paper is super sweet, and that birdie....aw :)
