A couple of new things

Hi y'all.
I just had to show off this 'Welcome Baby' banner that I made for my friend's baby shower we had at my house the other day. I have been loving all the banners I have seen around so I had to try my hand at it.
I used the Cricut Calligraphy cartirdge on this to cut out the triangles, scalloped triangles, circles, and the little onesie.
I kept this one pretty simple because I didn't have a ton of time, but thought it turned out so cute, I may make a fall or halloween banner next!

And here are a few quick cards.
I've made several lately, but it still seems
I've hardly made a dent in my stack of scraps! :)

I love yellow and gray together....something about it just makes me happy!
I think I may give this one to JBG's teacher.
He is loving her and kindergarten, and I am so grateful for that!

So I finally broke down and ordered some new things from this last CHA. I was trying so hard to resist, but I just couldn't. And when my dear husband wanted to indulge me......
well, I couldn't say no, now could I? :)
A little Cosmo cricket, October Afternoon (I ordered their Seaside papers...think I'm going to
L-O-V-E these!!!), My Mind's Eye, and American Crafts.

Yea, that ought to hold me for a while! :)

Seeing those cards makes me miss card night oh so much! Thanks again for all your hard work to do those. It was so much fun! I was at a baby shower this weekend for Missy Stebbing and Gwen Rawlins gave her an adorable card...made by you. :)

Cute cards Janelle...I love all the banners around too! I had to make my birthday one because of it, but I did it out of fabric! Yours turned out cute!

What is CHA?

I miss those card nights, too, Janelle.

I am glad that your husband wanted to indulge you in getting some of the new products- that Seaside collection is so cute, isn't it? I just got some of the paper and stickers, too. I made my first card with it last night so you'll have to watch for it on my blog one of these days- I love that banner paper.

I am sure Joshua's teacher will love that card!
