Happy Mail from Brenda!

Fellow Sassy Lil' Sketch design team member, Brenda Rose, and I swapped card kits. This is the lovely kit that Brenda sent me after I carefully unpacked all of the card elements that Brenda so neatly packed.
Breanda pre-cut all the papers and stamped the images using Close To My Heart products.
It was so much fun to unpack and put the cards together!
You can check out more of Brenda's creations at her blog HERE.
Brenda designs amazing workshops so if you are in her neighborhood (wish I was!) you should check out her blog and events!
Now for my finished cards...

I just love that text paper and how Brenda combined it with the beautiful blue graph paper.
I don't usually follow kit directions but these are pretty true to Brenda's designs.
I left off a few of the more dimensional elements for ease of mailing.
Making these cards was the most relaxing hour of my week!
The hardest part was deciding which card to send to my nephew who just turned 18.
I decided to go with this one.
Thanks to Brenda for the card kit swap!
I truly enjoyed putting these together and appreciate all the work that went into creating the kit...
hope you get a chance to hop on over to Brenda's blog.
