Clearance cards

Well, as you can see, I have been using some more of my clearance items to make a few cards.  If you know me very well, you know that I absolutely adore clearance items!  There's just something exciting about knowing that you got something really terrific for a really great price! 
I made the card above for a few people who have not been feeling well lately.  I just thought that little doggy would certainly cheer someone up when they are not well!!
As for this card, I think I tend to run out of birthday cards and sympathy cards faster than any other card.  I think I need to plan another stamp-a-stack class...
I had a friend at church who just lost her father - just a few weeks after losing her mother.  I thought I'd make a card with a soft look that would cheer her spirit.  I liked using these little kisses (the die cut cards) to put my sentiment on - I added a button and a few little blue stick on pearls from the dollar store and had a nice, quick card. 
You can't see it, but I added a little bit of the Bitty Backgrounds circles on the kiss diecut to add some texture behind the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

I love the use of buttons on the 2nd card. Awesome!

Love the sick puppy, great colours and DSP. Nice to see someone using up their old stuff and lovin' the clearance rack. I need to do that more.
