quick and easy birthday cards

 March and April are busy months for birthdays for me.
I am trying to be organised and wrote a list of the cards and gifts needed to get me through the next 2 months
It was long.
I need a quick way to make pretty cards.
Then I dropped  lots of paint charts on the floor.
I use them to teach with to help people make colour schemes. I like the Dulux ones that where ther are 5 or 6 tones of the same colour. 


Lightbulb momnet.

I dont claim it to be my idea. I am sure it is out there already and if you have seen it I will happily link to it.

Paint chart + small flower punch = pretty card.



and some interesting scraps!
