Fourth of July

I made some 4th of July cards to take to the assisted living where my mom is.  So much has been going on with my mom that my crafting time and inspiration was just lost.  One of the ladies there said they play Bingo and could give the cards out as prizes.  It sort of got me motivated.  Also took some other projects that I made in classes and were just sitting in the drawers.   I dug into my patterned paper for these cards.  Only a real crafter would understand my next statement.  You can't use this special paper because then when you really need it you won't have it.  In the mean time you hoard the paper forever.  Time to use it and for a good cause.

Flower Punch Board

I just wanted to post a card I made with a new punch board fro We R Memory Keepers.  It can make flowers in 3,5,7 and 9 inches.  What I thought was so cool was I could use it on a card and then make large flowers for other projects.  I used the 7 inch one on a gift bag.  It comes with a scoring tool and and a tool to curl the petals.  Another thing it can do is make leaves.
