Welcome new followers!  It's so much fun to have new friends and see your comments.  I really appreciate them.  I promise I'm not going to just gab today, but an update is in order.  My daughter lost.  Well, maybe lost isn't exactly the right word, but I'm afraid I couldn't wait as long as Mother's Day with all the super deals on cartridges out there.  Yes, I gave in to temptation,  but it's all worth it when I can spend time making lovely crafty things.  Oh, and my Xyron (another gift - see I told you it was on the way) arrived as well, so I have a machine for my refill.  Now it will be so much easier to attach smaller bits.

Now for cards............The first one is a card made for my sweet hubby for our recent anniversary.  Yes, he was a TCU Frog.  Yippee, they won the Rose Bowl!!!  The card was cut at 6" from the Mini Monsters cart.  I just love him; my hubby, naturally, but I really love this frog. ; )   The words were cut from Beyond Birthdays, but, of course, I inserted an 'O' where the 'A' would be in happy.  Paper is from PapertreyInk and some generic.

 My second card was made for a baby shower for a distant cousin.  I was really happy with how it turned out.  This card and envelope were cut from Wild Card at just about 5.5".  I used some stickles to add a little sparkle.  The stamps are TCP Studio, paper is DCWV and K and Company, and the ink is VersaMagic Chalk.

I certainly hope you've enjoyed your visit today, and that you'll stop by again soon.  I'm going to announce my big goal for the coming year, and your visits will help me reach it.  More later............

Keep your creative genius flowing.........
