Lunch Box Mini card -- BLD Tuesdays

Hi Everyone!
I'm back from my vacation and it was relaxing and fun!
Thank you to Amanda, Darnell, & Stacey for the great cards and gifts for my birthday!
It really made me smile to come home to a pile of birthday mail and some new crafty goodies!!

My card today is a mini lunch box card.   
I made it for a friend who wanted to pop it in her son's lunch box for a little surprise.  
It's a 4 inch square card and there wasn't a ton of room to work with so I just 
added the tiny SU! buttons to the corner.
I was going to play along w/ Colour Q for this one... 
But...I'm clearly still on vacation!!  
As I missed the linky deadline for Colour Q yesterday!!
Awwwwww nuts!!!   :( :( :(   Silly me!

But... I am going to enter my mini lunch box card into these challenges:

I hope everyone has a wonderful back to school week!!
My girls started yesterday and are loving it so far... 

BLD inspiration Tuesday is always a great time to see what the girls are doing with the new images!!
There are some SUPER CUTE cards today and new Halloween images @ BLD.
Don't forget to pop over and have a look!!

  4. You put as much meticulous detail into a sweet little notecard as you do a regular card, Nicole! Love the fab coloring in my fave colors!! I HAVE to get a card made for that ColourQ! Oh, crap, I just read below the card and see you missed it, which means I missed it, too! Oh, well, I'm sure it will be a winner in the other challenges!! (You are so welcome for the birthday card! I'm glad the girls are loving the start of a new school year! Hugs, Darnell)
