I was chatting with a good friend of mine & told her that I needed to make a few cards for some other friends of mine, but
I just didn't feel like it. Well, she told me to get off FaceBook - get busy & meet her back on FaceBook in a few hours to
post my cards.


I got a little side tracked....


I did get a few simple cards done & loaded.
I have had the Cricut Wild Card cartridge for way over a year & never really "played" with it, so thought now was as good a time as any to try it out.....and... (wowzers- you can even make the envelopes to match the cards. I didn't take a picture of that, but this first cards envelope is cute)..... thinking I will use it more....

Hope you enjoyed looking & have a great day.
Thanks Betsy for getting me "moving".
Untill another time.....

I went to TroyOh. the first wk. in Aug to visit a good friend of mine. While there another good friend of ours came,
and showed us how to create a triangle card - diorama card & a stair-step card. All 3 were fun to do & make. I forgot to take a picture of the triangle card.
I have made a diorama card before, but the one Hewitt showed us was a lot more fun & seemed to be easier for me to make. Here is the "outside":

the "inside" - has a greeting that didn't show up in the picture:

I think this stair-step card turned out cute:

Thanks Hewitt for a fun-filled day.

Hope you enjoyed looking & untill the next time.......

My niece Michelle made this patchwork quilt flower card:

My wonderful friend Betsy made this card for me & I just adore it....

Sitting here card: I made this a while back & can't remember the papers or cardstock I used.
I did use a embossing folder for the background & sizzix die to cut the card shape

Hope you had fun looking ... until another time.....
