Love Cards

I have some cards to share today. All were made with the Citrus Tree Studio January Kit, which I love. Have I mentioned that yet, ha ha!! The kit came with some fun Technique Tuesday stamps which are perfect for Valentine's Day or pretty much any other occasion.


I cut the flower shape on my Cricut, then crumpled up the paper in my hands. I then straightened out the paper, inked the edges and layered the flowers using 3-D tape.


I love white ink on black cardstock! Here is one of the fun sentiment stamps.


One more card, this one I punched squares with my old school Creative Memories square punch and used my butterfly punch. Pulling out all my punches made me want to run (or more realistically, crutch) to Michael's for a new punch. There are so many new fun border punches!


Some small rolled flowers and another fun sentiment!


And yes, it really is that nice in my backyard right now. The weather here has been amazing. Before my kids went back to school, everyone has been wondering if this was summer break or winter break??? I am still on crutches right now. I'm trying to take things one day at at time and starting to walk on my foot more (in my walking boot). I'm hoping to ditch one crutch permanently...and then 2 permanently. It's not going as quickly as I'd like it to, but again...one day at at time.

Thanks for stopping by today!
