A Birthday card and 2 note cards...........

I didn't know if I would like a brown birthday card---but it looks like chocolate and I love the embossing.



I bought a 'just a note' stamp with some of my Christmas money and I think I will get my moneys worth out of it---after all---it was 50% off--love those after Christmas sales!



I'm loving the flowers I got--they add so much!!!

OH my gosh!!!

What a Christmas I had! All kinds of stuff to make cards for my Cricut and more!!!!

A Cuttlebug--it cuts, but I'm going to use it as an embosser!!



And another cartridge for my Cricut Expression



this is going to help me make my cards for my ministry.

And last but not least.....




my Zutter Bind-it-all! It makes books out of just about anything!

I'm going to make some little albums for the grandparent of this wonderful Christmas!!

Watch this video from Mary at Cardz TV (I think my favorite card blog ever!)

Merry Christmas Card....(another one)

This was my own idea.....




I'm still having fun!!!

Two more

These were fairly easy......



If I charged by the hour,I'd have to charge at least $25.00 per card.



I guess I'll get faster.

I'm going to start double matting...I think they look better.

This is next time.....

Caption will be: Buzy as a bee.....



Laura's teacher Mrs Davis



Laura's teacher Mr. Kraft



(Front of card)Caption: I'm sending help....



(inside of card) caption: 'cause I heard you caught a bug!





I haven't finished putting the cards together, but was on the computer and thought I would take the pictures and post.

I love my machine and bet I'm going to love the expression even more. I think it would take less time to do scrapbooking than cards!

Well, until next time!!
