big piece.

christmas swaps

the santa face inside reads:
if you see a fat mam
who's jolly and cute,
wearing a beard
and a red flannel suit
and he is chuckling
and laughing away
while flying around
in a miniture sleigh
with eight tiny reindeer
to pull him along
then let's face it

the center step santa inside reads christmas cheer
blah blah
chestnuts roasting
blabity blabity blabity
and the measurements are for an A2 size card

and the wreath on door was left blank inside

oh boy not good with posting

last for today

thanks to blogger action or non action whatever it is doing today this is the third post that should of been all one   it's another birthday card. it's a side step using a house mouse stamp. in the picture the second step isn't very clear but it says candle.    ok now i'm off to watch an old movie on tv ghosts of mississippi  it has a great cast of characters and the story is very thought provoking.

birthdays card

blogger  is acting up today what should be one post is turning into multiples!!  ANNOYING.

i stumbled upon a funny thong quote and knew i had to use it,  this is how that turned out,   outside it says
  you know you're getting older when,  inside says the only thongs you wear should be on your feet,  i used the cricut to cut the THONGS (flip flops)

a few new cards

graduation is upon us and i needed a few cards so here is what i came up with   the red card is for a little guy for pre k, the grey one for a college grad, the blue one for a high school grad.

some swap cards

my red white and blue swap cards really created a problem for me ysesterday i really had a H A R D time with red so they are very simple and DONE.   the tub card was fun the image was a digi and i really am upset with the coloring on the image  i used good paper but i don't the ink from the printer was dry  so i dried them even with a hair dryer not happy with digi stuff so far. the frame is cut with the creative memories reminisce cartridge and the saying is computer generated, the tub phrases are put with sentimental and i can't remember which other one.

maybe this week end i will post some of the scrapbook construction pages i just finished on national scrapbook day may 7 we'll see how that goes  used the cricut for many of those pages too.
