I recently made birthday card for my mother in law. Her birthday is tomorrow. She is the best and sweetest mother in law anyone could ever hope for! This card is one that I made after seeing Melanie at Courtney Lane Designs make it. Mine is very similar to hers only I also used the Formal Occasions cartridge to add flowers to the front instead of using a stamp like Melanie did. I love the overlays on the new Artbooking cartridge. They cut so easily and really add a lot to my cardmaking. I cannot wait to explore this cartridge more and to use it to make some layouts! I also used my Envelope Punch Board to make a matching envelope. I love that tool!!

Thanks for Poppin By my blog!! I appreciate all the visits and comments you leave....it just makes my day! I made several of these cards to send to family just to say hello The inside says "Poppin by to say hi!" and then I added a personal message. I cut the popcorn from County Fair and it was sized to 4". Lots of cutting for all the little pieces but it went together very quickly. The card base was cut at 8.5 x 5.5 and then scored so it is an A2 sized card. I made an envelope using my WRMK Envelope Punch board. In my opinion, that is a must have tool! I love how perfectly the envelopes turn out and always just the right size.

After seeing the great swing cards that Joy has made over on the Obsessed with Scrapbooking blog, I decided to try one out tonight. I needed a card for my son who will be graduating from the police academy Friday. There are several great swing cards all ready to be cut out using Artiste. Mine was cut out exactly like the one on Joy's blog. I also made a matching envelope using my Envelope Punch Board. The whole project was done in way less time than it usually takes me! I plan on entering this card in the Die Cuttin Divas challenge on their blog too.
