TGIF!

Is it just me or do weeks after a holiday seem like the longest weeks ever?
Good grief!
So thank goodness its Friday (well, tomorrow anyway)!!
On a more positive note...
I have more sneaky peeks of fun new My Little Shoebox products to be released at CHA.
I am pretty sure Helen (My Little Shoebox owner and designer) saw inside my heart when she created these mini alphas!
And how fun are these:


I got on a bit of a card-making kick last night.
I just got my hands on the new Scripts kit from Scrap Etc. + I needed to make a couple of cards for a couple of friends = perfect timing!
I usually hate the cards I make but for some reason I was on a roll, whipped out these babies, & actually like them for once.
These cards are using the cardstock, Jenni Bowlin journaling cards, and Basic Grey paper and alphabets from the kit.
I used the same basic design for the first 3 cards-just turned it around and changed the paper & cardstock...easy!

(FYI: the polka dotted paper here is the packaging from the Jenni Bowlin journaling cards!)


In other very important news...
Katie
&
Virginia
