Cute and Simple with My Mind's Eye

The weekend is here...hooray!  One of my boys is fighting an ear infection and I am lacking sleep but other than that, we're good!  The current challenge over at the My Mind's Eye blog is to use their die cuts like their journal cards, titles, etc.  I immediately pulled out my Alphabet Soup playing cards (hoping they count) to make some fast and fun cards.  I just love all the adorable images on these playing cards.  I bought both the girl and boy sets back in 2010 and since each set comes with 52 cards (2 for each letter) I still have lots to play with...gotta love that!  :)

Anyway here are 4 cards I whipped up last night using the playing cards along with various MME papers, brads, and stickers.

Ahhh...summer.  Can you feel it?!  Since I have two of each card, I was able to cut the sails out of the second card and pop them up on foam squares to add dimension to this card. 

I love this little robot and thought pairing it with the new Boy Crazy collection would make a great Valentine/love card for one of my boys.


And finally....

The heart/polka dot flag on this card is actually the back of one of the girl playing cards that I just trimmed.  I love how the cards are so colorful and just the right size for card making.  As you can see, I just simply needed to dress them up a bit to come up with some fun cards in a short amount of time.

And if you are looking for more inspiration, here are the links to two more of my favorite cards using these Alphabet Soup playing cards:
