My Cards in Preparation

I finally got my hands on a Swiss Dots embossing folder which is great and I am using it for everything at the moment, So here is the Boy and Girl version. The spotty paper is from Papermania, The ricrac is from wait for it, Ikea!! On the Girl card I made the little pearly thingy out of wire and alphabet beads, more embossing and the same spotty paper.
Fingers crossed for some news today!!

These cards are adorable! Isn't it fun that inspiration comes from all over! (I love the Swiss Dots folder, of my faves because it is so versatile!)

Have a great day!

Lyzzydee, very creative.

This year I'm making Santas out of bathroom tissue cardboard rolls. I'll do a post closer to Christmas with instructions. My mother used to have her grade 4 students make them in December.
