Ladies, please email me at cardipaws@sbcglobal.net with your choice of collection kit and your shipping address.   Congrats!


Today Melanie Jarocki is up on the blog....I am going to let her take it away......


Thinking Of You
One of my favorite ways to spice up a project is to fussy-cut. I love all of the images in the Audrey line and thought it would be fun to cut some of them out and pop them off the page. I added some Pink Sorbet twine from the The Twinery, along with Nikki's small yellow alphas to complete the card.




You Are So Berry Sweet
Did you know that the sentiment squares at the top of Nikki's cut-ups pages are the perfect size for gift cards? 

I cut this Berry Sweet one from the Audrey collection sheet and then machine-stitched it to the background paper. By just stitching around the sides and bottom of the square, I could insert a gift card into the top for a perfect gift card holder.




Ok, well I just learned something!  I had no idea that those were the perfect size for gift cards!  

Be sure to visit Melanie's blog!
