Card guts I mean? I usually always have some laying around, I even package them up and put them in the door prize basket, and they are first to be picked. "Card guts – yeah!" my stampers yell when they see 'em, oh my gosh and the "bag 'o bows" that goes fast too. What is funny when Rhonda and I do a group event and there are other Demonstrators and their customers, and one of my customers say card guts, and the look other people give, cause well it does sound kinda gross…but it makes sense…right?
What are card guts? When I cut for a class, I usually cut a few extra just in case of last minute attendees or boo-boos, so I will have extra card supplies or "guts". So I just keep them with their envelope and when I need to do some quick cards, I use em up, if I don't package them up as door prizes. I will sometimes change the DSP or something, but sometimes it is just the same card, different set. You may have even noticed it at times I will have a card using the same paper and even the same layout as one I have posted before. Nothing wrong with that at all. I love it, it's like doing a sketch, I already got the guts, the papers are cut, grab a set, some embellishments and voila' your card is done…kind of like a no-brainer, and some daze that's me…
So this card is using card guts from the Branch Out card from my Pink Flamingo class that I taught at the Prescott Pines weekend, and also the class I am teaching Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
I just tweaked it a tad, but it was a super fast card to put together.

They say it's gonna be another cold night in Arizona, it feels good, I mean ya have to wear a coat, but I like that it is staying cooler, it gets hot as blazes fast enough.
Have a great Friday, and I hope that if you live in the snow country, spring is springing…I know I saw my first lizard today so that's a sign that it's warming up.
Thanks for stopping in!
