Today I'm posting the 3 cards we made at Joyce's CTMH afternoon class yesterday.  She has some great things coming up, and the new CTMH cricut cartridge in now available, so be sure to check out her blog.  Joyce's Joyful Creations  
The card below will be going to my niece for her birthday next week.  She loves purple.
 The next card consists of 20 one inch square pieces of patterned paper, edged in chocolate and then glued onto a card front.

Look closely at the intriguing background design of the third card.
Six different patterned papers cut into 1/2 inch squares, randomly glued to card stock, and then dry embossed in the Cuttlebug. Really neat!  Takes a while.... but really neat!

On a personal note.... I am not a trash picker under normal circumstances.  But I make an exception when I'm at Joyce's. She gave me a strip of yellow paper and asked me to punch out a bunch of 1/4" dots for on the purple card above.  What was left was a strip of yellow paper with a bunch of holes punched out of it.  I immediately thought, "that would look good on a card". So I came home and added it to the bottom of this Bee Happy card.  I also happened to be sitting next to her trash can yesterday.  I robbed the border for the next card from that very trash can. I wish I was a little better with my camera because the little car is actually 3 layers and I made a teeny, tiny plastic windshield for it, cut from a packet of brads that was close at hand.

Now I'm off to watch my grandsons for a little while. 
Hope you're enjoying my blog so far.


  1. Your cards are absolutely adorable! Thanks for checking us out!

  2. I wish I had been at Joyce's with you! I really like the card with the 20 Squares and the background of the cupcake card.



Thanks so much for saying hi.
