It's a Set and Match

Howdy! We had a beautiful day today. I think the temperature got to 80 degrees with a nice breeze. The sun was shining for a change. We went right from winter to summer in mid May. Mother Nature is surely confused this year.

Over the weekend I thought I would work on the Friday Mashup challenge. They posted a tutorial for a way to make 4 very easy backgrounds. So you could either create a project using the sketch, or create a set of cards, or you could mash it up and create a set of cards using the sketch. So that's what I did. I picked 4 scraps of paper from my paper bin that were pretty good sized scraps and made them into 4 backgrounds using the tutorial. And then I created cards.

This is the only card I got done on the weekend. This is Bugaboo's Gus. I just love these older folks and their cute sayings. This card is for my older brother's birthday. So tonight I finished the other cards that I started to finish my set.

I used Gus again. This time for my brother-in-laws birthday. The other two cards are also Bugaboo images and birthday cards. I love how colorful these are and they all turned out nicely!

I am entering these challenges:
Hope your week is going well. Not sure how much more crafting I will get in until the weekend. The rest of the week is very busy! Have a great rest of your week!

I'm headed to the link to the tutorial. If I dared to put 4 papers together like you did, people would think I had lost my mind. I LOVE all three of yours!
