Words With Friends Thank you card

While my husband was in the hospital recovering from heart surgery I played a game called Words With Friends on my phone. This one person I work with played the game with me alot. This kept my sanity. I thought I would do a Thank you card for her. It was perfect. The picture does not do it justice but it was fun putting together. She loved it. Notice the letters on the bottom say "stupid". I'm always joking to her and saying stupid.  I thought her letters of choice would be cute to say stupid.

As you can tell the inside of the card is very plain. Maybe because I spent so much time on the outside. I made the front cover using SCAL on my cricut. Very easy to do. Still have not had time to figure out how to make SVG file to give away. One day I will learn it. Blessings, Susan

Frugal ideas

While at work yesterday I found some of those small hand spray sanitizers in our drawer. There was lots of them that an ambulance service had given us. They look just like Tim Holtz spray bottles. I took 8 of them home and emptied them into my hand sanitizer and used the bottles to make my sprays. He he I was so excited.
Another thing is the Cricut mats. I've decided to buy the 12 x 24 size. My thinking is I get 4-12x12 mats for $15 instead of buying the regular  2-12x12 mats for $10. I don't cut it which kinda makes it cumbersome when working with 12x12 papers but hey...it saves money!
