Bon Voyage!

I made this card for a friend who is off to France soon. I love the little house mice. They are the cutest little things.

I am pleased with myself for completing a double page scrapbooking layout this morning - only my 5th layout ever. I may show a photo on here at a later date. We'll see. Anyhow, it was such fun, but a lot of work cutting out and matting 8 photos.

What a long time...

...since I posted anything on here. We went to England and had a good time, even some sunshine. Didn't get a lot of sight seeing done, but the main point was to visit family, and that we did. It was just a shame they're spread out all over the place. Maybe next time we'll settle in one spot for the duration and let people come visit US.

Anyhow, here are a couple of cards I have made, both for copycatcards challenges. First, a gift card holder. Pull the ribbon and the gift card and message come out. The paper is from K&Co Berry Sweet and the letters are by Basic Grey.

Next up is a card made for a 'green' challenge, to use the colour green, or something recycled. I used cardboard packaging to stiffen the butter foil embossed panels. Two recycled items, yay! The foil I painted red and let dry slightly before rubbing off roughly. I used two embossing folders in the Cuttlebug - Bird Call and You.

Thanks for looking . Hopefully I will have more to show soon. I am working on quilting a queensize patchwork quilt top I made about 4 years ago. Better late than never!
