Orange Two Ways

I sat down yesterday afternoon during the rain shower outside and put together these two cards to pass out to two special people. 
This card uses a pad of die cut flowers and leaves I purchased a while back. I am determined to go through my stash and use what I have instead of bringing in more at the moment.  These designs are from the Carolyn Gavin Greenhouse collection from K&Company. I added some black stitching and a rub-on sentiment from Making Memories.

Next up is another card I made using the other half of the orange 12x12 paper I pulled out to create two cards each measuring 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
This card came together quickly by using Kristina Werner's card sketch from her latest "Finally Friday" video.  I love seeing what she puts together on Mondays and Fridays.

I used a Stampin' Up set from my stash called "For a Friend" and added patterned papers and die cut papers from my scrap pile.  The baker's twine is from Martha Stewart's line at Michael's.

That's it for today...working on a few things as usual...but, before I go, I wanted to share with you a cute present I ordered a while back for my sweety hubs...I snuck this picture of him while we were getting ready for our family shot:
I found, through one of my coupon sites, a link to order a customized t-shirt through Vistaprint and all I had to pay was the shipping (which was so inexpensive I can't even remember how much it was).  I hope he can keep it clean during our yummy BBQ dinner today.

To order a shirt go to vista -- on the main page you will see the t-shirt option under "gifts and fun" - I'm not sure what the cost is, because I only had to pay for the shipping when I ordered mine. They are fun!
