Finally, a couple PUNCH cards to share with you!!

Finally, a post! Right... :) Sorry for my absence. Last week we moved our office to a brand new location (VERY NICE!) and I had some LONG days into the evenings working. And over the weekend was my catch up. On Sunday it was such nice weather I was working in the yard to get a few things winterized. Pulled bulbs, cover the A/C unit, washed a few windows, shrubs, etc. Now only if I would have giving Cooper a bath the day would have been complete... ha! He's still smelly and very hairy! In a couple weeks he goes in to have his "Spa Day" which includes a bath, trim and cutting his nails.

On to the cards.... I understand this card design was in the SU! Demo Magazine. The 2nd card is what we made at Mary's SU! workshop in September. I had so much fun making it that I made another card with pink and pumpkin pie tones.

This card is perfect to up-selling your SU! punches... and what an amazing cards a girl can make
with punches... WOW! I did use some non-SU! decorative edge scissors I own on the ice-cream bowls. And added some CuttleBug embossing in the back ground.

Well, off to bed I go! I wish everyone a warm Minnesota SMILE!! And a day full of colorful fall leaves... 'tis the season! He... :) Thanks for popping in for a visit. I haven't blogged much in over a week. All the comments I do receive I do return the favor and let it be known I have not forgotten about you!!!!

Hugs and SMILES!

Hi Michelle,

love the pink and pumpkin together. This inspires me to be more innovative... I'm SO stuck on squares and even spacing.

You put SO much work into your cards, makes mine look very simple be comparison!!

A very cute and clever card! I especially like the 1/8"? circles punched out of the background. Fun and playful. Simple but striking!

You know how much I LOVE my card! It is a keeper, proudly displayed in my craft room. I keep looking at it thinking I need to make one of my own! In the meantime, it makes me smile every time I see it and think of you. You are such a special friend to me Michelle!

Warm (or should I say, hot) California smiles from me to you!
