Welcome to the World!

I am finally starting to put together the ten (gulp) cards I need for my card buffet on (another gulp) Sunday. When I'm pressed for time I turn to my long list of ideas I've seen on other blogs and get busy CASEing. Here's my first card, which was inspired by Lisa Young's adorable card seen here.

I wanted something quick for the cart - and I wanted to save my decorative label punch for another card. (At my card buffets I try not to use supplies on more than one card.) So I used one of the cupcake Sizzlit dies. Now that I'm looking at it, the scale is probably a tad off compared to the Fox & Friends lion. LOL. But I'm going with it! I attached a thin strip of Pear Pizazz card stock for decoration and made the wheels with 1/2" and bitty circle punches and silver brads. The linen thread behind the cart attaches to the sentiment banner with a ring - I just used the 1/2" circle punch around one of the bitty circles I'd already punched from Bashful Blue - and a tab made from half a word window punch. The sentiment is from A Word for You. I figured that was enough for my stampers to do so I just finished off with a strip of pear DP, a little paper piercing, and a Chocolate Chip card base.

OK, it's time for bed so I can get up in the morning and keep going on the rest! I probably won't get around to posting all of the cards, but I'll try to show you my favorites. Thanks for visiting!

dear Lori.

What a super cute card. I love the idea. Thanks for sharing it. I need to dust of that stampset and use it again... I miss it :)

Did I tell you that I so love your blog! You have such a creative mind.

Inky hugs, Pauline
