Happy St. Patrick's Day 4 x 4 Card

Well, I apologize for the non-cropped photo. Our computer hard drive died earlier this week and we just got our computer back yesterday afternoon.

As I work with my computer, I am finding out what I don't have and need to get of those things being my photo editing program.

I didn't want to miss a post because of editing issues, so here is my St. Patrick's Day card for my 5 year old son, TJ.

I used Doodlebug's Pot O' Gold 6 x 6 paper pack and Doodlebug's Petite Prints patterned paper with Worldwin Deep Emerald Isle cardstock, a Black Bazzill cardstock and a Bazzill White cardstock.

To embellish my 4 x 4 card, I used the Create a Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge, MFT's Stitched Square Scalloped Frames Die Stax and Doodlebug's Sequins.

TJ's Valentine's Day Card

This is the Valentine's Day card that I made for my 5 year old son, TJ.

TJ loves my cards and tells me all the time that he wants to be a scrapbooker and a card maker just like me when he grows up.

A week before Valentine's Day, he asked me if I would make him a Valentine's Day card with hearts on it. I told him that I would see what I could do.

Since he loves my Cricut Cartridges so much, I decided to make him a die-cut card and not a stamped card.

I used Doodlebug's Petite Prints Patterned Paper with a miscellaneous red cardstock from my stash.

To embellish the card, I used the Create a Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge.

I used Close To My Heart's Holiday Tags (discontinued) stamp set with CTMH's Black ink.
