A Couple of Quickies...

I don't know if you've heard of Pay It Forward?  It's when you surprise someone, sometime during the year with a parcel of goodies (can be anything you fancy).  I've already sent a couple of packages out at the beginning of the year & now I have another couple ready to go & I made these quick cards to go with them.  This is the first time I've used my Marianne Collectables dies ("Eline's Typewriter"), which come with stamps. The notepaper is made with an EK Success punch & I finished them the cards with Washi Tape (I am in love with Washi Tape at the moment).  I really like how they turned out :o)

 I was supposed to be going back to work today but unfortunately been ill again so it will be Monday now & hopefully I can start a fresh week feeling well & get back to normal - at last! (fingers crossed).

The challenges:
Sugar & Betty's - Anything Goes 
Just Us Girls - Stacked Die Cuts
Glitter & Sparkle - Include a Die Cut
Ladybug Crafts - Use Your Dies
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Tip Top Tuesday - Cut It Out
Freshly Brewed - Anything Goes

I hope you're having a lovely week. Hugs xx

These are great! Have to admit, I am partial to the typewriter - having been a typing teacher at one time. :D

These cards really are so adorable and I love the tapes. So sweet of you to send out little goodies! I'm sure they are much appreciated. I do wish you good health - but hopefully you enjoy some of the time out and get rest.
