 Seems May and June are serious card months at our house. We have Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthdays, and anniversaries all together. What's a frugal gal to do?? I like to use my scrapbooking rements to save a little money and make them when possible. Maybe these cards can spark some ideas for your homemade cards.  I'd love to see your work to give me inspiration, so please share a link in the comments.
dry embossed the birdhouses and rubbed with sandpaper, added ribbon behind and some torn patterened paper
