Some Mini Cards!

There is something about things that are little.....little babies, puppies, kittens, dollhouses, hamburgers....you get the idea! I had some scraps of paper and decided to use 'em up for mini cards! I used the Crafty Secret's Creative Scraps, which I LOVE because it makes cardmaking a snap! I paired these vibrant images with October Afternoon paper, ribbon, and of course......glitter.


This one, I used my "grass" scissors from Martha Stewart! (I don't think that is really their name, but that's what I am calling it!) It created this cool fringed border along the side of the card.
It is Thursday already and today my 5th graders are putting on their band concert for the school. They are ready for their summer break........as am I. It is hot and sticky in the classroom and trying to concentrate is getting more and more difficult. But the end is drawing nearer, a couple of more field trips, an awards ceremony, and summer will officially begin! : )

What wonderful cards!!! I love the vintage images.

I'm so jealous - we still have a full month left of school - I'm hoping to put off my music concert until the third week of June! Gotta keep them all busy!!!

Have a great day
