Card Quickies and some doily fun!

Hey friends!  A little while back I posted some quick mini gift cards  I made using Want2Scrap bling, Wilson Designs, Papertrey Ink and My Cute Stamps.  I love using these little cards for the many birthday parties my girls are lucky enough to attend and are often made *just before* the mad dash out of the house to their friend's birthday bash.  

Many times I let the wrapping paper or gift bag dictate my color and theme choices making these cards even quicker than usual.  The cool guitar from Wilson Designs is a go to easy choice for boy gifts. 

These adorable eye glasses and typewriter inspired sentiment are from the same set as the guitar.  You can find it here Let's Rock.  You KNOW I can't resist adding google eyes, right?!

.....and....for no reason at all other than seeing this on the internet (check out Charlotte's tutorial) and needing to just DO this to a couple of my doilies.....

doilies + food coloring + a wee bit of water =

Yum, YUM, yumminess!!!!  These will be coming to a craft project near you soon, I'm pretty sure I won't be able to resist using these for long!

Thanks for coming by!  I'll be back tomorrow with a new sketch challenge with Just Us Girls!

Always love how you personalize up some wrapping paper. And even for a quickie, you've still got the details from the li'l star hole punch to the glasses googlie eyes going on! :> As for the colored doilies, they look like something that'll be whispering in your ear until they get to play with you some more. Have fun!
