3 Little Ducks a Baby Shower card and Tag

This lil card was requested by 1 of my "swimmin wimmin" Jimmie Gayle, for a baby shower she is attending this weekend.The mother is expecting triplets, God Bless her! .I used the New Arrival cart, cutting the ducks at 1 1/2" , 2 times in blackout, in the orange and 1 time in the shift key for the yellow.I also cut the tag charms in 1 1/2 and 2".I used PPDU for the umbrella, cut at 5 1/2" and I snipped the handle to make it a lil smaller once I started assembling the card.Embossed the background paper with the sweet baby folder from Cuttlebug, and used the swiss dots and hearts folders, as well.Did a lil inking, popping and added the baby hearts along the umbrella.I used wave scissors for the water and the swirl embossing folder. I added a lil piece of white card stock so that all the ladies could sign it.I had so little of the blue card stock left over, but wanted to make a lil tag, cause Jimmie Gayle is so sweet.This is one example of her kindness, she is bringing me a tin filled with her Grandmothers old buttons tomorrow !!! Her grandmother was a seamstress during the depression to compensate her preacher husbands income, and Jimmie Gayle has lots of her buttons and she wants me to have them!!! See how sweet she is !!! I can't wait !! Thanks for taking a peek!!!

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
