Vacation's Over

Today wrapped up my vacation. I made several cards this evening. Guess I was getting in every last scrapping minute I could before going back to work. My first card was scraplifted from my "Cards, Gifts, and More" magazine. I usually don't like to copy someone's work, but I do think it's fun to learn new techniques that way and to get out of a scrapping slump. And I think no matter what you always personalize it in your own little way. I used my Cricut to make my ice cream cone for the card. My Cricut is by far the best scrapbooking tool I have. It does everything and I use it all the time.

My second card I love. I made the spider using my Cricut and sewed his web using my sewing machine. It had been so long since I used my sewing machine that I wasn't sure I remembered how. Must be like riding a bike, because it all came back after a few minutes. Hope you like them.

How cute! It's always nice to make something you see someone else make b/c it gets you creating and makes you start thinking!
