Too Too Cute

Hey Yall! I hope everybody is having a great summer. I am running around like my Nana use to say "Like a chicken with it's head cut off"! Not a pretty sight! There are so many exciting things happening. Don't forget the Royal Blog Tour starts in 3 days. It will run the 26, 27 and 28th of July. I am so excited to be part of this tour. So check back on Sunday and take the ride. Lots of blog candy to be given away. Stampin' Up's annual convention is in just 2 weeks. This is my first convention, first time to Salt Lake City and I am terribly excited. I'm sure I'll have tons and tons of new and excited ideas to share when I return. And finally I have 3 really cute cards to share. Several months ago our unit made punch art books. One of the pages was small Sesame Street characters, so I got the idea to enlarge them and make a gift card holder. I used the large Scallop die for the Big Shot and folded my paper over then placed it slightly short on the folded side. then I cut a second scallop, cut it in half and made a pocket for a gift card. Aren't they really cute? The card stock colors are Real Red, Brilliant Blue and Yo Yo Yellow.( I tried it in yellow, you can't read it.) I used circle punches for eyes and noses and oval for Big Bird's Beak. I just love these. Great for a card or to embellish a scrapbook page. the Big shot is really very versatile. I will be hostessing a big shot club and series of classes the first of the year. Let me know if you are interested. Well, I better get busy. May God pour out His abundant blessings on you- Go be a blessing to someone else. Love to all.
