Wild life - nothing like seeing a deer! What a magnificent creature!

Have you tried using the Sweet Treat Cups with a Cricut Cartridge cut? I think this is a great card for kids of all ages. A bit time consuming to assemble, but the results are worth it.

Peace & Brick Wall

Faux Brick Technique
Oh Wow! I learned a new technique today! Faux Brick. I made this Faux brick wall mat for the front of my card. I found a nice Country Cottage home digital stamp in my collection to use on this card.

Go to Speedy TV for tutorial - my link did not work for some reason - go figure.
