Thanks to everyone for participating on the give away. I enjoyed reading all of your comments, and getting so inspired by my kind hearted followers. Now I really know I need to keep going, and come up with more ideas to share with all of you. I sure wish I could give everyone a button punch. It is such a fun punch to have. I hope everyone will continue to visit. and let me know from time to time how I am doing, or if you would like to see a certain project.

THE WINNER hamptongal SAID... what a great give away I just love your cards. I did a button card sort of today. I didn't have the punch so I used real buttons and made my look like flowers. I'm going to post it on the message board later.

hamptongal email me so I can get your address, and I will put you package in the mail tomorrow.
If you see hamptongal in the Cricut MB give her a high five!

Paper Quilling Designer Cards

My first intro to working with paper was when I discovered paper quilling several years ago. I decided it was time to gather my tools, and incorporate quilling with card making. This is what I designed using berries as my focal point. With a quilling tool and strips of paper you too can design a unique card. Enjoy
